1. Update on Albemarle County

I received an email today from Emily Kilroy with Albemarle County. She said the hearing on gun control tomorrow will NOT be limited to ten speakers (there is a limit of ten for people who are speaking on items not on the agenda).
If you have not signed up to speak, you must do so before the hearing. Instructions are below.
I also forgot to thank Steve Harvey, who is organizing the rally tomorrow.
There WILL be press at the rally, so let’s have a strong showing!
I was interviewed on the Rob Schilling show this afternoon and should be on Channel 29, NBC, in Charlottesville this evening.

ACTION ITEMS
To get our voices heard, a rally is being held to protest the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors infringing on the right to keep and bear arms by Virginians.
Gun owners MUST stand together and help protect each other’s rights. An attack on gun owners in any locality is an attack on ALL gun owners and needs to be treated as such! Whether you live in Albemarle County, Charlottesville, any of the surrounding localities, or wherever, we need to stand together in unity against this betrayal of our rights!
Date: Wednesday, July 21
Time: 5 pm (the virtual Board of Supervisors meeting starts at 6 pm)
Location:
County Office Building
401 McIntire Road
Charlottesville, VA 22902

Carry is legal at the rally.
I will be at the rally before I head to Orange County to speak at a Republican Committee meeting (7 pm at the Silk Mill and Grill, 101 Woodmark St., Orange, VA 22906). See you there (or, perhaps, at both places)!

----

If you wish to participate in the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors Zoom hearing at 6 pm, here is a link to the guidelines.
Talking points:
  • This is a solution in search of a problem. Albemarle County has not had any incidents that justify this infringement on the rights of the citizens of the County
  • Alexandria’s shooting went up 40% beginning the month their ordinance took effect and has stayed up. This ordinance will only embolden those bent on harming others
  • Only 12 localities out of 194 (six percent) have passed this kind of local gun-control, putting the County out of step with 94% of the state and the surrounding counties
  • Parks have remote areas that police simply cannot cover or secure
  • VCDL is suing Winchester and the NRA is suing Fairfax County over a similar gun ban there

2. If you haven’t sent comments on the BATFE’s proposed homemade gun ban or pistol-brace ban, do so now

There is still time to tell the BATFE to drop their proposed regulations on homemade guns and pistol braces:

5. WVEC-13 - lopsided story on gun violence insinuates that increase in CHP holders caused increase in violence committed with guns

WVEC-13 shows now NOT to create a balanced new story. Here they give tons of time to a spokesman for a gun-control group, Andrew Goddard, and zero time to a gun-rights group. So, the story ends up tilting all the way in one direction, to the point that CHP holders are ridiculously implied to be causing the uptick in violence in Virginia.
Goddard loves to claim that people carrying concealed handguns are not reducing crime. Sigh. CHP holders don’t carry guns to reduce crime and CHP laws were not created to reduce crime. Enforcing laws and putting violent criminals behind bars for long periods of time does lower crime rates. But, CHP holders do not enforce laws – law enforcement does that. CHP holders carry guns to protect themselves and their families. Period.
Goddard also quotes gun “studies” from 17 years ago, that have since been debunked, about the dangers of having a gun in the home outweighing the benefits. The reporter didn’t bother to check on the validity of those “studies.” If he would have checked with a gun-rights organization, he wouldn’t have blindly repeated incorrect information.
Goddard actually believes the fantasy that guns can be kept out of the hands of violent criminals and he said so in the story. Too bad Goddard never served in law enforcement or he would know better.
The story has no mention of defunding the police, restricting police from enforcing laws against rioters, early release of violent criminals back on the streets, restricting where gun owners can carry, etc. as causes of the increase in violent crime.

6. ‘Epidemic’ of gun violence prompts call for Virginia to use federal dollars to curb shootings

What a coincidence (cough, cough) that crimes involving the misuse of firearms dramatically increased after the Democrat lawmakers in Richmond passed all that gun control last year! We told those lawmakers that would happen, but they owed Michael Bloomberg some payback. They clearly have their priorities.
Democrats defunding/restricting the police, letting violent criminals out of jail early, and reducing criminal penalties didn’t help either.
Gee, it’s almost as if someone wants a crimewave so that government can offer us a “solution.”

8. Replay of last week’s monthly VCDL virtual membership meeting

If you missed our LIVE meeting last week, here is the replay:
This evening's VCDL meeting started off with Phillip talking about existing lawsuits and other VCDL business. Then special guest Maj Toure joined us (33 min mark) and spoke about what's important to him and actually all of us. During his presentation, we lost Internet connection and the video dropped for about one minute. We rejoined the video after the minute and continued on. At the end of our meeting, Sarah Max joined us (1 hour mark) and talked about an upcoming benefit for VCDL members from Aflac.

9. Virginia State fire marshal makes pro-gun statement after being robbed at gun point

“’It taught me never to leave the house unprotected, even if I’m just going to get ice cream,’ Jones said.”
Welcome to the world of self-defense and understanding the critical importance of the right to keep and bear arms, sir. Luck saved you from being the guest of honor at a funeral.

We have Commonwealth House of Delegates, Governor, Lt Gov, and AG elections this year. Look at what we have going on. Get your azzes to work down there so you are not fighting this next year.

Terry McCauliffe was gov 4 years ago but a Gov cannot succeed himself. He can take 4 years off and serve again.

Nemo --

If you thought Terry McAuliffe was bad the first time around, wait until you hear what gun control initiatives Terry 2.0 is promoting now. Virginia's political landscape changed drastically under McAuliffe's tenure as governor, and not in a good way. However, he was unable to get the majority of his gun control policies implemented due to the state legislature. Unfortunately, as Virginia's gun rights proponents know all too well, the state legislature is now in the hands of the gun control majority.


Former governor and current gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe joined Gabby Giffords, of the Giffords gun control group, at a round table and spouted off his wish list of gun control legislation he would like to see passed if he were to become governor of Virginia again. "Right off January, we're going to start passing all this stuff: Ban the sale of assault weapons, get rid of the high-capacity magazines, ban the ghost guns. We'll have it out in January," predicted Terry 2.0. The ever-eager McAuliffe seems to be putting the cart before the horse here a little bit.
I hate to make you imagine this potential reality, but if Terry 2.0 is successful in his race and both chambers of the state legislature maintain gun control majorities, it could be a very dark period for gun rights in the Old Dominion. To fight back, we are asking for you to sign our petition for the 2022 legislative cycle. Just click one of the red "Prevent More Virginia Gun Control" buttons in this email, and we will keep your email responses until the 2022 legislative session begins. That way the people making the decisions will get an inbox full of pro-gun patriots blasting any gun control efforts right at the start of the session. Remember, THEY WORK FOR YOU!


We at the Firearms Policy Coalition thank you in advance for stepping up and being proactive against the impending gun control push in Virginia. We encourage you to share this email with like-minded friends/family/co-workers in an effort to have the largest impact possible when the new legislative session begins. Continue to stay informed and keep vigilant to ensure that we can fight back and win together! If you haven't done so already, go to JoinFPC.org to become a member of the FPC Grassroots Army TODAY!
Yours in Liberty,
