Action Item: we need to stop proposed changes to the National Firearms Act (NFA) dealing with trusts!
Trusts have been a great way to handle NFA items, such as machine guns or silencers. Now NFA trusts are under attack by President Obama in a scheme that will make it much more onerous than it already is to get an NFA item.
More information and and action item are contained in this short article. Thanks to Member James Durso for the link:

Action Item: York County Board of Supervisors to consider modifications to the Lafayette Gun Club
On Tuesday at 6 PM in York Hall, the York County Board of Supervisors is going to consider some modifications that the Lafayette Gun Club wants to make to its property. The Planning Commission made some changes and passed the item to the Board of Supervisors for action.
Information about the meeting is here: https://www.yorkcounty.gov/Default.aspx?tabid=1900
Some of the neighbors are opposing the changes, so it is important that we have a good turnout supporting Lafayette. I will be there representing VCDL.
If you live in York County, send a supportive email to your Board of Supervisors member.

VCDL President to be on the Coffeehouse Radio Show on Thursday

Looks like Lynchburg PD is blowing smoke on needing detectives to do CHP background checks
CHP background checks are so quick and inexpensive to run that the Campbell County Sherifff’s office isn’t even charging for them. The Hopewell Sheriff and VCDL member, Greg Anderson, independently confirmed that the checks are indeed quick and easy. Sheriff Anderson uses the same person who operates the VCIN (Virginia Criminal Information Network) system to do the CHP background checks. (BTW, do NOT confuse the Hopewell Sheriff’s Department with the Hopewell Police Department. It was the police department whose officers unlawfully detained VCDL member Brander Howard for openly carrying a rifle.)
Another VCDL member who worked doing CHP background checks in the past also confirmed that the checks are quick and easy.
I continue to believe that all the Lynchburg PD is doing is providing perks to their detectives at the expense of CHP applicants.

I will be on the State Legislative Panel at the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) on Saturday, September 28th, in Houston, Texas. We will have at least seven VCDL Board and Executive members there. (GRPC is an annual meeting where most of the gun-rights leaders from across the country meet to discuss strategies on protecting our right to keep and bear arms.)
