    It appears to me that the VCDL is able to organize thousands of patriotic Virginians as well as the NRA to also round up supporters and lobby the State government. If that is so, the VCDL and NRA should be lobbied to work together just as hard to seek out 2A supporters to run against the Ds in Virginia and take back their state government.

    It's one thing to get a several thousand people and over 100 counties and cities to support your 2A rights with sanctuary cities and counties as well as recognizing the importance of a militia. It's perhaps more important to work to find worthy R candidates to beat the Leftists who would turn Virginia into a gulag.

    That work is taking place right now. The search for candidates is underway for any local and state seats that are occupied by freedom hating incumbents. Hopefully there will be no democrats running unopposed in any future election - there were many in the last election as the Republican Party saw those districts as already lost.

    Given that the Senate Committee votes the other day were 9-5, it may not be a straight-up (d) versus (r) situation, but one where pro is more important than anti.

    The counties that voted to become sactuaries were neither uniformly "red" nor "blue"--but they have proven to be solidly "pro" and not "anti."

    This is a pivotal issue, and with a very energized base, there is a huge amount of political capital in play, and that needs to be handled well and surely, and for our gain.

    It's a shame this sham got this far...that is, that it wasn't stemmed off at the polls.

    That’s what goes with revolution and empire building.

    The R’s didn’t run a candidate against our state senator. A Libertarian whom no one ever heard of got almost 20% of the vote. Until they can find candidates for state office that are not beltway RINO’s it’s going to be this way.

    Too many uninformed voters just vote party lines. Virginia dems have introduced a bill to give 16 year olds the right to vote. I don't think they are going to be very likely to support Republicans who are opposed to the legalizing of weed that the governor and attorney general support.

    We have several VA threads running. This one, sorry to say, adds little more than we have already discussed in activism thread.

    Thus, closing it.
