    Here's your chance to make a difference. With enough support we can OVERRIDE THE GOVERNOR'S VETO on these bills. If we don't act, we lose!

    From the VCDL (clicking the links will take you to their easy pre-written response system. You may edit the response to your liking if you don't care for the pre-generated ones.)



    Time is extremely short and we must act now to override Governor Kaine's vetoes of SB 476 and SB 436!

    I am seeing one furious email after another and we need to take that energy and channel it into getting Kaine's vetoes overridden.

    You can edit the messages, if you wish, to customize them.

    LET"S ROLL VCDL!!!!!!!

    Also, you probably do NOT want patronize the Richbrau restaurant in downtown Richmond. Pass the word to friends, family, and coworkers.

    The owner is EXTREMELY anti-gun and was on the news again today saying that he was glad that the Governor vetoed HB 476.

    That same owner has been fighting against your rights year after year.

    Here is a link for Va residents for contact info for General Assembly. It is the Who's my legislator where you can send a message to both your delegate and Senator. Its easy, after you enter your address it automatically knows who to send the email to.

    Senator Cuccinelli is all over this. I hope Virginia gun owners remember that name in a few years. We have few more stalwart friends. ;)

    Delegate Caputo :barf::fire::barf::fire:

    Let's just say, when I appeared at his office on Lobby Day, he saw my Guns Save Lives button, the smile vanished from his face, and he vanished into his office. His aide was a dear lady and listened patiently, but I was wasting her time and my breath.

    But keep the calls/e-mails coming, folks.

    Yeah, Caputo was a real prince that day wasn't he.

    I'm still trying to figure out how Virginians put this Socialist into office over Kilgore.

    Because we don't vote based on the amount of mud the candidate can sling.

    If Virginia is going to turn Blue, so be it. When the R's stop putting complete tools up for office they'll get the votes. Until then, we've got the nation's premier local gun rights group to keep watch.

    Well, that's it, dead issue (at least for this year) <sigh>.
    Still it was a GREAT effort!

    folks who supported us...
    folks who think we're childern needing babysitters or criminals (plus the turncoats)

    Did my part. Thanks for the links.

    I believe this effort CAN work. Remember what happend with the amnesty legislation? Due in large part to efforts such as this.

    Kudos ZeSpectre!

    We'll re-visit this next year you can be damned certain of that!

    Also, folks might want to go to the VCDL website and post an email to Philip Van Cleave (and the rest of the VCDL) thanking him for his outstanding time and effort down at the capitol. That man put in a LOT of time and a LOT of effort and endured a lot of harassment to fight for this.

    I agree with the last post. Let me put it a little stronger in that there's few better places for your money than to have it invested with Philip and the VCDL.

    I did mean invested.

    Mr. James Well-Known Member

    Absolutely. I am in awe of the man's energy and dedication. He is not alone, by any means, but he carries the brunt of these efforts, sitting through endless committee hearings, buttonholing the 'critters, doing media inverviews to get our side of the story out, and - not least - the frequent updates to let the rest of us know what's going on in Richmond.

    Done. The VCDL has really opened up my eyes this year. Shown me that I CAN make a difference and to do so we need to start locally at the state level.

    I campaigned and supported Jill Vogel.
    I supported and attended the Bloomburg Gun Giveaway.
    I attended Lobby Day.
    I emailed and called all my delegates and senators several times.
    I MADE a difference this year.
