Covington VA --(Ammoland.com)- Virginia Citizens Defense League wishes to thank the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club for their support.
They host VCDL meetings on a regular basis, giving us a comfortable place to meet in the Charlottesville area. http://rrpc.org/
We encourage you to visit their web site and participate in their many activities. Membership is affordable and participation in many of their events does not require joining the range.
Here is a piece from their monthly newsletter, The Sight & Action, about Lobby Day. The S&A can be found on the RRPC web site at http://rrpc.org/newsletters/currentsa.pdf and is available for download by all.
What’s the Big Deal About Lobby Day?
Every year on the Third Monday in January the Virginia Citizens Defense League holds their annual Lobby Day. This day is also Martin Luther King Day so a lot of people are off work and most schools are closed. However, the General Assembly is in session and therefore many groups lobby on this day. Since it is a holiday street parking is free…you don’t have to feed the meters.
This year in particular we have a new administration coming into office. Both the Governor and the Lieutenant Governor are admittedly in favor of placing what they call “common sense” restrictions on your right to keep and bear arms. So this year it is vitally important that we, as a community of responsible gun owners, show up in force to send a very clear message that we will not tolerate the passage of bills that only punish good people for the actions of the criminal.
Lobby day is the perfect opportunity for you to meet your Delegate face to face. It is an exceptional learning opportunity for your children as they can see first hand how our government works and how they can be a part of the legislative process. From what the representatives in the GA have told us, your emails are good and a phone call is better. But what carries the most weight in their eyes is a personal visit. In fact we have been told that if just six people contact a representative on any given issue, that is considered a high volume and gets their attention! Imagine the response when hundreds, even thousands, of gun owners show up in a single day!
Our government is “Of the People, By the People and For the People.” YOU are those people. If you don’t exercise that right you WILL lose it. So mark your calendar for January 20th and make plans now to travel to Richmond. There will be car pools so watch the VCDL Facebook page and sign up for the VA-ALERT at www.vcdl.org. See you in Richmond!
