Covington VA –-(Ammoland.com)- On Wednesday May 28th 2014, Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) held a protest in front of Don Beyer’s Volvo in Alexandria.
Virginia Citizens Defense League was protesting Don Beyer’s anti-gun flyers sent out in his bid to be elected in the 8th Congressional District and his failure to answer the VCDL Candidate Survey.
Beyer wants to be a leader in pushing gun control. (Some photos are posted on the main page of VCDL.org.)
We had lots of drivers honking their horns and giving us a “thumbs up.”
One person came over to me from Beyer Volvo and said “If I had know Beyer was anti-gun I would never have bought my car from him.”
We had a couple antis being, well, antis. One was a woman, who while waiting to make a turn, rolled down her window, yelled “You’re idiots!” and then rapidly rolled up her window so as not to hear any response. Like a kid calling you a name, putting their hands over their ears, and going “La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-
No one responded to her childish namecalling.
The second was a man in a large pickup truck. He actually slammed on his brakes, almost causing a pile up behind him, just to yell something about “endangering the children.” So much for any children that might have been in the cars behind him if he had caused a crash…
A few others gave us a one-fingured salute.
Two women stopped by to take some photos and video.
The antis were vastly out numbered by the positive response we got from motorists, several stopping to get more information about the group.
A Fairfax County police officer in an unmarked car pulled over across the street to observe us for about ten minutes and then drove off. (We were technically in Fairfax County and not Alexandria.) A few other Fairfax County patrol cars cruised by during the two-hours we were on site. There were no interactions with any of them (hats off to Fairfax PD).
