WVCDL-ALERT – Victory March 5, 2016
West Virginia – -(Ammoland.com)- This is by far the best West Virginia Citizens Defense League (WVCDL) -ALERT message I’ve ever had the pleasure of composing. Today the final hurdle was cleared. The Senate over-rode the Governor’s veto, and as of the end of May, Constitutional Carry will be the effective law in West Virginia.
3-22. In favor of the Right to keep and bear arms.
A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and state, and for lawful hunting and recreational use.
My pride in you, our members and supporters, could not possibly be greater. I am comfortable speaking for Art, Amber, Tom, and Keith (Campbell), and saying that allowing us to be your voice has been, and continues to be deeply humbling and awe inspiring. No group in the history of West Virginia has had political and policy successes anywhere near the scale of what you have accomplished.
The lives, liberty, and safety of 1.8 million West Virginians are improved today, thanks to your efforts. And now, West Virginia joins the national narrative as a model for other states fighting for their liberty and personal safety. We have, and will continue to impact policy nationwide.
And as we digest the magnitude of your accomplishment, let’s have a look at just a few who stood against us and fought us tooth and nail:
- Billionaire Mike Bloomberg
- Senator Joe Manchin
- Governor Earl Ray Tomblin
- The WV Sheriff’s Association
- The WV Fraternal Order of Police.
- Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper
- Statewide broadcast media.
- Statewide print media.
- Charleston Mayor Danny Jones.
- WV media mogul Bray Carey.
- House Majority Leader Daryl Cowles.
- Senator Corey Palumbo.
- Senator Herb Snyder.
- Senator Mike Romano.
- Senator Bob Beach.
- Delegate Nancy Guthrie.
- Delegate Stephen Skinner.
- Delegate Mike Pushkin.
- Many others.
In the face of enormous, and well-funded opposition brimming with lies and deceit from both within and without the state, you made this incredible leap forward in the recovery of our liberties.
Your state, as well as our posterity owes you all a deep debt. You made this happen.
Tonight, in whatever way you feel is most appropriate, celebrate. Celebrate victory. Celebrate liberty.
