    Good Luck to you VA residents, but I don't see your legislature caring about their constituents in this issue. They have the power to ram through whatever they want.

    Elections have consequences.

    Not sure that you read the notice or the reporting in VA on this.

    Several Dem Sens. have publicly expressed opposition. All that it takes it two. We have a very real shot at beating this.

    The biggest threat to our side is folks just thinking that we're screwed so why do anything.

    It's extremely important to understand that we really can beat this one. The same Sen. Ctte killed another of the Northam/Bloomberg bills which they really wanted already.

    This is the time for 100% all hands effort.

    Hope you're right. I was listening to Dana Loesch the other day and she sounded pessimistic about it, but she's not a resident so might not know so much. Best of Luck!

    See, if you don't vote pro gun first the other stuff won't matter. This will jest be the start of more restrictions, the Democrats will never stop.
    Not until they have them all.
    Lesson Learned !

    There are a couple of moderate Dems in the VA Senate.

    Creigh Deeds is one.

    We have a real chance of killing the AWB in the VA Senate, if we can get a couple of the moderate Dems to side with us.

    If anyone wants to call Senator Creigh Deeds and ask him to OPPOSE the AWB, the red flag law, and the other gun control bills, here is his contact info:

    https://apps.senate.virginia.gov/Senator/memberpage.php?id=S62

    Contact his "Senate office", and not his "district office" unless you live in his district.

    When you should have been out and working was when you elected the reps that failed to support your position.

    Now it's too late and I suspect you are screwed !

    Your next actions need to be aimed at getting pro people elected and a decent governor and getting these laws changed back.

    Good luck !

    Why are you so defeatist? VCDL, NRA, GOA etc are not generally over-optmistic and rosey. All of them - including those of us who have been living and breathing this VA situation for over a year - believe that we have a solid shot at killing this. What basis do you have to be so negative?

    I would say that a defeatist attitude could well lead us to loose if people just don't think that anything can be done - which is totally not the case.

    Get this message out on Twitter! I don't know anything about Facebook, but get it out there too. You'll need to reach more people than just those who post here.

    I don't do any social media. PLEASE ANYONE help. Please put this our far and wide. REMEMBER VA is the test case. Bloomberg wants to buy YOUR state (and the Presidency itself) and do the same. He has the money. We MUST all fight back.

    Creigh Deeds, a moderate Dem who represents a largely rural district, has run for governor in the past (he lost), and he may be planning to run for statewide office again.

    If you call/email him, it might be a good idea to say something like "Hey, I know you are interested in statewide office. I will remember how you voted on the gun control bills if you ever run statewide again. If you vote for gun control, I will vote against you, if you run statewide."


    Of course, if you live in his district, you can also tell him that you won't vote for him again for state Senate, if he votes for gun control.


    Deeds' contact info is here:
