agree. For those not aware, when/if tyranny passes, they will be in the fight on the legal side, and it is expensive. If you join, throw a few $ towards the forthcoming festivities.
Lobby Day will be in January again; if you have not been, you need to go. There are proposals to make it a “will not comply” rally outdoors instead, but we’ll see. Either way, our overlords use that as a measuring stick vs. the professional protestors. Last January, I think we had around ~500 (maybe?) from VCDL vs. 5+ chartered busses with Moms Demand Action stooges, all wearing matching shirts, with professionally made sides and organizers with clipboards, etc.
What Pinky said. I’ve called my local reps on occasion and believe it or not instead of the usual angry rant I actually stated my opposition to certain bills, thanked them for listening then in my way I apologized that we in the 2A community have not done a better job of claiming the high ground in the culture versus the disreputable opposition.
I wrote in to the VCDL and they asked if I was available for Local Government and Local Sheriff liaison. I said I was. I will see what becomes of this. At the very least it may mean some better liaisons / relationships in Culpeper County. The Sheriff professes to be pro-2A so we can see what potential we have to be a 2A sanctuary county.
Still kind of amazed to see this unfolding so quickly, I was talking to a Virginian at the Chantilly gun show back in September and he assured me Virginia was still conservative enough they didn’t have to worry about Maryland-style gun control any time soon. So much for denialism.
