    I'm aiming this specifically at Virginians, we need to GET active and STAY active! Please write your representatives and let them know how you feel. Please join the VCDL for Lobby Day! (www.vcdl.org)

    If nothing else send in some $$$ and join the VCDL and give 'em some leverage to work with.

    As for those of you not in Virginia, take heed! This sort of stuff is most likely going on in YOUR STATE as well weather you know it or not.

    From the VCDL Newsletter...

    I am pissed off at Dave Marsden. He was campaigning for office and came to my door and into my home. He looked me in the eyes and told me that he believed that the gun laws in VA were at a good place and would not make a move one way or the other for ANY new law... yet he has placed two laws into the hopper.

    I plan on making it to the Lobby day on the 21st so I can let him know I am upset with him for lying to my face (plus to meet with other legislators). As long as the inlaws are not in town I plan on being there...

    I'll be there the 21st and am bringing a new friend I made working the VCDL booth at the gun shows!

    Look for the guy in the blue wheelchair wearing a VT hat with a "Guns Save Lives" button on it!

    I have made up my mind to be there as well. Anyone dressing up in a suit or something like that? I figured Business Casual would work for me.

    I'm thinking upscale casual. Maybe a sports coat.

    Information has been updated on the VCDL page (www.vcdl.org)

    More details at this link

    There is, of course, no formal dress code but we're encouraging folks to dress a little upscale if they can. Still we'd rather have you there in old jeans and a T-Shirt than not at all.

    If you have a CCW permit then concealed carry IS ALLOWED and since showing that gun owners are responsible (even when they actually have <gasp> real guns on them) is part of the point you might want to consider carry (again, if you have a valid CCW permit).

    I'm trying to get off of work, if I can, me and the old lady will be there.

    How about it Virginians? I hate to be pushy but now is one of those times to stand and be counted!

    Ditto on the "No Camo". Here's some other things to leave at home for this event:

    • They can have this gun when they pry it...
    • There's a place for all God's creatures next to the potatos and gravy
    • Confederate Flags
    • T-shirts
    • Jeans with holes in them

    Bring your "Guns Save Lives" buttons. I have a bunch, and will be bringing some spares.
    Dress in business casual if you can, or a suit.

    The one that concerns me most is 592.

    Let me ask, since I am shamefully uneducated on the how state governments run, can you tack on riders? And if so, couldn't we get someone on our side to tack on a rider that says something to the effect of "no gun registry shall be kept by state government, any document identifying the purchaser of a weapon must be destroyed within two days of the date of sale..." etc. If no records were kept of the individual sales (or any other sale), that would take the teeth out of most of the threat, IMO.

    Also, how does a background check work for an individual sale? Do individuals have access to something sufficient, or would this just essentially ban individual sales?

    Evening all, I have a question. I see that this starts at 10am, but how long does it run? My wife works that day and I've got my kiddo, so I can only be there for a few hours or so. Is it still worth coming out?

    It will be over at 12 as I recall... either way, YES! PLEASE come! Every body counts!

    The wife and I will be there.

    I got the day off and will be there with my old lady.

    Nothing can stop us now. (knocking on wood)
