BORROWED FROM MARK THOMPSON - "I've just been told in the Pol group, that the agenda (will be confirmed next week) for the December 3rd Gloucester County BOS meeting, will contain a resolution for our county to declare itself a second amendment sanctuary.
All those who care about their rights to keep and carry their legally owned firearms should attend and make their position known.
Between the armed robbery at the point today, and the draconian bills that were pre-filed today in the VA General Assembly, this is an important issue to us in our county.
Inform yourself using the VA LIS, and please plan to attend if you have something to say. The bills are self-explanatory. As written, the "assault weapons ban" reclassifies nearly every commonly owned defensive handgun as an assault weapon, and bans either the firearm, the magazines for it, or both.
This is nothing more than an assault on law abiding gun owners, and chp holders who purchased and have carried their arms legally for years. This bill in particular does absolutely nothing for "safety" and is punishment, for those who do not agree with, or have a different culture than those who now hold the gavel in Richmond.
Be there. Let your voice be heard. Stand in defiance of assault on the constitution of VA, the US, and on law abiding good people.
December 3rd, at 6:30 PM, at the old Courthouse in the traffic circle. The agenda should be confirmed next week.
Join us and send a message that Gloucester citizens will not be pushed over."
