VA – GUN RIGHTS – Warren citizens ask to form militia-type group

Citizens have asked the Board of Supervisors to approve a resolution establishing a militia or similar armed organization bearing a different name, continuing the statewide trend of gun owner reaction to the General Assembly’s consideration of a package of gun control proposals.  Sam Haun presented a proposed resolution to the Board of Supervisors Tuesday, saying that “the reason that we brought this before you is because it is a constitutional right for us as citizens to have a militia.” This is on the heels of over 1,000 citizens packing E.
