Covington, VA -( A couple of VCDL members reported to me that at a Charlottesville rally for the victims of the terror attack in Orlando, two City Council members said they were going to bring up some kind of gun ban during the City Council meeting on Monday, June 20.

Of course, thanks to VCDL’s efforts back in 2004, localities can do no such thing!

Needless to say, it still wouldn’t be a bad idea for some members in Charlottesville to sit in on the meeting to see if the issue comes up (it’s not on the agenda) and what is said. If they are considering any such gun ban, we will move to stop the proposed ban quickly.

Thanks to members Chris McLean and Jim Wilmoth for reporting the situation to me. (Members like Chris and Jim are why darned little slips by VCDL when it comes to gun issues!)

Don’t fall for the phoney private property rights argument either. Banning the carry of guns… Read more »
