Antis Are Upset About VCDL Protesting Anti-Gun Mayors
Virginia – The antis have “learned” about VCDL protesting the Falls Church Mayor, tomorrow, Monday, October 26 and the Norfolk Mayor, Tuesday, October 27 and are, er, up in arms.
They are trying to get their members to turn out at the city council meetings to counter our protest.
As EM Matt Gottshalk said when he saw this, “I’ve never seen so much slander in so few words.”
Here is what the Virginia Center for Public Safety (how’s that for a misnomer?) sent to their members (my comments imbedded in brackets)
Please forward this to anyone who can help!
The most extreme representatives of the pro-gun movement are planning to show up at local city council meetings across the Commonwealth for the purpose of harassing and intimidating the seven Virginia Mayors who have courageously stood up in support of the safety and well- being of their citizens over the fear-mongering and cowardice of the gun carriers. [PVC: Where do I begin? Since when is redressing grievances with the government considered harassing or intimidating the government? And I have to laugh when I hear the antis calling US cowards. “Harassing,” intimidating,” and “cowardice” are THEIR qualities which they are “projecting” on us.]
PLEASE DON”T ALLOW THEM TO SUCCEED!
On a Web site called “Ammoland”, the President of the so-called “Virginia Citizens Defense League” has pledged to show up at each Mayor’s next City Council Meeting in order to try to browbeat and intimidate these public servants into capitulating to the VCDL’s irrational and dangerous positions. [PVC: Protecting the Second Amendment civil right of Americans is “irrational and dangerous?”]
Believing that no democracy can tolerate political action through armed intimidation, The Virginia Center for Public Safety hopes all Virginians, liberal, moderate, and conservative, will help us stand up to these extremists, who while cloaking themselves in the veil of law and order, are perfectly satisfied with felons, terrorists, and the mentally disturbed having easy, unscrutinized access to guns, including military-grade weapons, as long as they do too. [PVC: Great example of the temper that the antis have. Look at the viciousness of those words against all of you. VCDL members carry guns for self-defense and will attend these city council meetings as we always have – as an orderly law-abiding group of citizens. Only the antis have ever accused us of being anything else. The antis, on the other hand, are the ones you have to watch out for. VCDL does not want terrorists and violent criminals to have guns, but we are smart enough to know that you can’t stop them from getting guns, even if every law-abiding citizen turned in every gun they owned.]
WE NEED YOUR PRESENCE, PARTICULARLY THAT OF RESIDENTS OF THESE CITIES, AT THE FOLLOWING CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS:
In support of Falls Church Mayor Robin Gardner:
Monday, October 26th, at 7:30 PM
In support of Norfolk Mayor Paul D. Fraim:
Tuesday, October 27th, at 7:00 PM
As we learn about any other attempts by the VCDL to engage in this type of intimidation of public servants, we’ll pass it on. We anticipate they will try to harass the other five mayors, also. [PVC: Heck, pass it on now. The other mayors are from Petersburg, Richmond, Hopewell, Portsmouth, and Alexandria. We just don’t have dates/times yet for their protests.]
