VA – GUN RIGHTS – Will Virginia Voters Punish Democrats Over Gun-Control Push?

Now that the dust has settled from the January 20th Second Amendment Rally in Richmond, Virginia, what did Virginia, and the rest of the country learn? And will there be electoral retribution for the massive gun-control push?  The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) has sponsored this rally and lobby day on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday each year, as many people have that day off work. The purpose of this rally has been for citizens to lobby their state legislators, and to educate them on the interests of law-abiding gun owners in the Commonwealth.  The bills that are making their way through the Virginia legislature are gun control pure and simple. They will not do anything to keep people safer in the Commonwealth. One bill demands background checks on private transfers, although only 3% of criminals obtain their weapons through sources that require backgrounds checks. Another bill increases the training required to obtain a concealed carry permit, which would disadvantage someone in fear for her life who needs to obtain a permit to protect herself. In addition, concealed carry holders aren’t the problem. As a group, they are more law-abiding than even law enforcement. There are sixty-eight total gun-control bills that VCDL has designated as “strongly oppose.” Sixty-eight! The crowd attending the rally was by far the largest in the history of VCDL’s lobby day. An estimated 22,000 gun-rights supporters packed the streets around the Capitol building. The media predicted a violent white supremacist rally, but there was none.  [full article]
