This problem may be spearheaded in Richmond right now but truth is gun confiscation has long been a hidden agenda of Democrats for over 3 decades. Make no mistake. This is what they want for the NATION, not just Virginia.

We would all do well, no matter our locations, to make an effort to accompany the protest scheduled for the 20th of January in Richmond, I think scheduled hours of protest are from 8am until 12 noon that day.

This isn't a Virginian problem. It's an American problem. We need to commit to action now, wherever it is needed.

Thanks for the shout out Security Guy.  We are hoping to bring 2-3 vehicles worth of people from Minnesota.  Right now we don't even have 1 full vehicle's worth.  Things are getting real and people are saying "wait, what?....".

If they false flag and harm comes upon innocent people... let them reap what they sow.  

 

Media will spin it no matter.  Commies will call it aggression and intimidation no matter.  This is the nature of the monster they have created.  No God fearing patriot wants anyone to be harmed or killed - we are the side that respects and values life.  We are the side that has shown patience and restraint, giving inch by inch in the hopes that reason and dialogue would win the day.  They're taking the mile - well, you can keep your six shooter, lever gun, and pump shotgun... until you can't.  

 

They're the ones picking the fight.  Let's remember that.  They could swallow their pride and back down and leave the people alone to live their lives and do the work.  They don't seem to want to allow that.  Who is to blame?  Are we to flee out of fear of danger or harm and let our children become slaves to tyrants?

She asks a great question: "When you pit the oath to obey the law against the oath to protect the people, which do you follow?" One should compliment the other when done Constitutionally. But when the law pits itself against the Constitution and against protection of the people, what you have is tyranny.

Excellent take away Matt!  We all know an unconstitutional law is null and void.

Those are good points to remember...

Thinking on the subject, I asked myself what would make a gun an "assault weapon". Well? What would constitute an "assault knife"? To me, the thing that makes it an "assault" is the "intent". How about assault "hands"? I mean, there are people charged with "assault and battery" here in my locale every day, and most of them fist fights. However, the one starting the fight, the one that attacks another is the one that initiates an "assault". The other guy is simply defending himself. Both are fighting. One guilty of "assault".

And well this fellow points out the fact that "assault" is a VERB. That is an ACTION. Yesterday we saw one man in a Texas church use an "assault shotgun" to murder two people. I call the shotgun an assault gun because that was the ACTION which the OPERATOR initiated. It has nothing to do with the gun itself. 5 people in the crowd responded with a weapon of DEFENSE (also a gun but less the intent of assault) and killed the murderer.

Notice I use the terms "kill" and "murder" with specific meaning in mind. To murder is to take a life for ones own gain (whatever it may be in the mind of the murderer). To KILL is also a taking of life, but something any of us might have to do in defense of the ourselves, others, or our country.

So, by strict definition on AMERICAN SOIL, to ban an "assault weapon" is to ban the INTENT of the OPERATOR to ASSAULT another with a GUN.


Forgive me. But isn't that already against the law?

You have NO IDEA what’s coming: Virginia Dems to unleash martial law attack on 2A counties using roadblocks to confiscate firearms and spark a shooting war

This is starting to fit together.  Mike Adams had said the whole purpose of the Virginia Gun Grab Legislation is to deliberately start a war.  It definitely looks like it.  With luck we can hold the line in VA but this is going to spread even if we do.  Looks like 2020 will be the start of the Big Boogaloo.

From the VCDL website:

 

VCDL Lobby Day (1/20/20)

Frequently Asked Questions

http://tiny.cc/lobbydayfaq

 

Isn’t Martin Luther King Day a Holiday?

Yes, it is a Federal Holiday, however, the Virginia General Assembly is in session and working.

 

Isn’t the 20th of January too late?

No, not at all. It's perfect. Bills are filed and are getting assigned to committee and go thru changes or killed, etc. Crossover day is February 11. That's when they make it to the Senate. Bills that advance and get signed into law "usually" become law on July 1st. VCDL is there every day during session. We need people like you to come to committee meetings every day too and speak to support VCDL initiatives! 

 

I can't come to VCDL Lobby Day, how else can I help? 

  • Subscribe to the free VA-ALERT email and take action expeditiously any time we ask. 

  • Donate and encourage others to donate and join us. 

  • Take off work NOW for MLK day in 2021 so you don't have any excuse not to attend

  • Make sure you vote on local and national election

  • Buy a "Virginia-15" stripped lower from Palmetto State Armory as they give VCDL $10 per each one sold. 

 

Do you have to be a VCDL member to come to VCDL Lobby Day? 

No! We invite everyone to join us that believes in the fight for our Second Amendment rights! Family and friends are welcome too! 

 

Can we carry?
We don’t tell you to carry or not, If you do, please do so legally and responsibly. You can't have a magazine in a centerfire rifle or pistol that holds more than 20 rounds unless you have a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP). You must also have a CHP if the centerfire rifle or pistol has a threaded barrel or a folding stock.  Click here to see the code section, which also covers similar restrictions on shotguns: 18.2-287.4

 

Open carry without a CHP is legal in Virginia, but watch the restrictions in the previous paragraph.

 

You need a CHP to carry in the General Assembly or Capitol Building.  Once through security, you can carry openly or concealed in the buildings.  You cannot carry in the gallery over the Senator Floor.  Keep an eye on these alerts.  Should any of this change, we will notify you in the VA-ALERT. 

 

Long Guns

If you are asking how you can help with VCDL's mission, carrying long guns at Lobby Day is not helpful - it is a distraction.  VCDL's important messages inevitably get lost as the press rushes to get pictures of anyone carrying an AR or AK.  The stories then become about the rifle, not VCDL's agenda.  You can set your watch by it.  Long guns are not easy to carry in a crowd, either. VCDL needs its voice heard loud and clear in order to be able to stop the onslaught of gun-control bills.

 

Is there a special entrance to those carrying with a CHP?

No. There used to be at the main GAB building, but in the temporary building there was not last year. If they add it this year. No backpacks or other bags allowed at this entrance as they don’t use walk-through magnetometers, just wands. Show your ID, permit and point out (don’t touch) where on your body you are carrying.

 

What should I wear?  Some wear suits and dress for a business meeting (that’s what it is) some wear business casual.  Check the weather. The lobbying is INSIDE. The rally is outside. With large crowds expected, there is a chance that you might not even be able to get into the building to lobby your lawmakers, so you should be prepared to spend the duration of your visit outside in the elements. Please check the weather before coming and plan accordingly.

 

Are there carpools? Yes!  Check out http://tiny.cc/vcdlride

 

How do I know which lawmakers represent me?

Check this website: https://whosmy.virginiageneralassembly.gov/

 

Where is the General Assembly Building? The Pocahontas Building at 900 East Main Street, Richmond, VA, 23219, is the temporary home for legislative members and staff while the former General Assembly Building is being remodeled. Constituents meet with their Delegate or Senator in the Pocahontas Building at these members' offices. 

 

I have never been to lobby day. What do I do? Show up at 8 AM (bring family & friends) and gather outside of the building where lobbying teams will be formed and enter the building with a team leader to guide you. It will be helpful for you to know who your lawmakers are. Watch for the sea of orange Guns Save Lives stickers. Here is a video from a lobby day years ago - https://vimeo.com/34618841

 

I have been to lobby day and would like to be a team leader this year. Who do I contact?  Contact Ken at [email protected]

 

What legislation are we looking at? Take a look at the VCDL legislation Tracker to see what we support, what we are neutral on and what we oppose.  THIS tracker is the 2019 tracker and will be updated soon: http://www2.vcdl.org/webapps/vcdl/2019leg.html

 

When do any new laws take effect? 

Generally, the new laws take effect on July 1, 2020.

 

Is there food? There are a number of delis and restaurants within walking distance and sometimes food trucks show up 

 

Parking - Meters are not enforced on lobby day. There are garages and some private lots around.  Google or a parking app is your best bet to shop location and price. This link should help too: http://www.richmondgov.com/Parking/documents/map_RF_RIC_Parking.pdf 

 

I’m from the press, who can I speak to that represents VCDL and their position?  Only the VCDL President, Philip Van Cleave speaks for the organization [email protected] (Mr. Van Cleave can designate speakers at his discretion). 

 

Who will be speaking at lobby day in front of the steps during the 11AM rally? We will present the list as the day approaches. So far we have:

 

 

Stephen Willeford stopped a massacre at a church in Texas

 

Antonia Oakafor trains women college students to be able to protect themselves with a firearm

 

Dick Heller from the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case of DC v. Heller

 

Dr. Veronica Slootzsky, a psychiatrist in Northern Virginia

 

Cam Edwards, Bearing Arms and host of the Cam & Co Youtube channel

 

Jeff Katz, talkshow host on Richmond's powerhouse radio station WRVA

 

Erich Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America

 

Sheriff Scott Jenkins of Culpeper County, willing to deputize thousands if necessary to save their gun rights

 

Sheriff Danny Diggs of York County, pledging to stand strong against infringements on the right to keep and bear arms

 

Anthony Myers, gun-rights activist from Suffolk

 

Senator Amanda Chase

 

Delegate Nick Freitas

 

Delegate John McGuire
