Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Huge night for gun owners, 18 new sanctuaries, including in Prince William County, City of Chesapeake, and Spotsylvania County! There are now a total of 77 sanctuaries across Virginia. Tomorrow night is going to have another large number of localities considering resolutions!

To check the full list and count of sanctuaries, remember to just go to the VCDL.org main page.

Here are the new sanctuaries as of Tuesday night 12/10/2019:

  • Bath County – Unanimous
  • Big Stone Gap
  • Bluefield
  • Caroline County – 600+ in attendance
  • Chesapeake – unanimous! Massive turnout well over 1,300 people
  • Cumberland County
  • Floyd County – 5 to 0 – packed house!
  • Greene County
  • Henrico County – 3 to 2
  • James City County – Unanimous
  • Martinsville
  • Nelson County – 4 to 1 – overflow crowd
  • Prince George County
  • Prince William County – 6 to 2, massive crowd – past 1,000
  • Smyth County – Unanimous – 1,100 or so in attendance
  • Spotsylvania County – unanimous – massive, massive crowd – way past 1,000
  • Strasburg
  • Warren County – unanimous – well over 1,000 in attendance

These localities didn’t pass a resolution for various reasons:

  • Fredericksburg rejected the resolution. Very low turnout. I think everyone was at the Spotsylvania meeting.
  • Lynchburg failed to pass their resolution by one vote: 3 to 4. May reconsider in January.
  • Newport News did not take any action but heard from a room full of people. If this is to pass, we need to massively overflow their meeting room next time.
  • Waynesboro to vote on their resolution in January after hearing from a standing-room-only crowd on Tuesday.
  • Winchester had 75 to 100 with GSL stickers in the chambers and more in the hallway. 10 speakers, all pro-gun. City Council went into closed session afterwards, but no resolution and no vote tonight. We’ll have to see what they do next.

I have photos of these events on the VCDL.org main page. The majority of these meetings were either close to 1,000 or well over 1,000 attending! I would say that Prince William County, Spotsylvania County, and the City of Chesapeake were breathtaking. If you haven’t been to one of these events, you don’t know what you are missing. The energy is incredible.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IS SO IMPORTANT. I am chest-thumping proud of all of you who are turning out at these meetings! You are in the fight and you are absolutely making a difference! But we must keep these jaw-dropping turnouts going across the Commonwealth! They are changing the political landscape in Virginia, trust me on this.

Oh, and if these events are jaw-dropping, just wait until Lobby Day on 1/20/2020.

A caller yesterday on the talk radio I listen to when I can asked just who is coordinating this whole shitshow. Something I have wondered about for years. It’s patently obvious to me that there is a very high level of control over what is being said and done by the triad of Media, Politicians, and DOJ. And I’m talking about a MultiNational level. How is it that issues of gun control, climate change, immigration, gay rights and the whole Orange Man Bad narrative coincide on a daily basis every single day? None of this can possibly just be a… Read more »

Over the past year there have been some comments here faulting me for emotionalism. Does anyone here think that emotions are not high in this crowd of people standing up for their rights and freedoms ? Does anyone think that our founding fathers drew up our founding documents free of emotions? Does anyone believe the American Flag was hoisted at Iwo Jima with no emotions ? Could you attend the burial of a soldier at Arlington Cemetery and have no feelings that a fellow citizen gave all for our country ? Are there those here that see the raising of… Read more »

, I agree with you 100%. With only 40% of registered voters turning out to vote I have no sympathy for Virginia. The republican party and gun owners shot themselves in BOTH feet. Let this be a lesson not to be forgotten. The results of this fiasco should be vivid in the minds of true freedom lovers everywhere.

Maybe they should have paid more attention at the voting booth. This did not have to happen.

I really hate it when ignorant people say this crap. If the Va and County level GOP organizations hadn’t fallen down and left 23 state level seats unopposed at the ballot box this wouldn’t have happened. The Virginia and Local Republican parties failed all of us, they let this happen. These people turned out to vote, they didn’t have a R to vote for on the ballot in many races. Mine was one of them!

So Rick, whose fault was it that the various Republican organizations (state and local) were allowed to fail? Was it not the individual citizen who did not participate in the political process? Did you run for office or encourage someone else to run?
In many respects it comes down to the schools and parents not teaching our children the political processes (civics) and We the People letting others run our lives.

Exactly! The candidates pretty well outlined what their agenda was before the election. This is proof positive that every vote counts! Northam may have been elected anyway, but not all of the delegates would have if every pro gun voter had turned out. Then there would not have been the results that gave the gun banners the ability to do what they are doing. If Virginia has a recall provision, it’s time for y’all to start the petitions! Good luck!

Turnout for these meeting may sound large, but compared to turnout for general election it is small. People showing up for the meetings probably voted – so issue is likely with other less involved (or aware) gun owners.
Even if issue could have been avoided, they are where they are now and should be commended for current activism. Hopefully they can carry on going forward and inspire others in both free and unfree states – so we can increase freedom across the country.

These Anti-American PERMANENT PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS MUST BE REMOVED from all Public Offices.
This POSITIVE action being done by Patriots who love America. This MUST be done all across America. When it is time to vote, VOTE for the person who SUPPORTS the Constitution. Make sure that person IS – – HONORABLE – – MORAL and will adhere to their OATH OF OFFICE to DEFEND our American Constitution from ENEMIES – BOTH FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC!!!!

Remove the professionals? Yes, but that means that We the People damn well better get off the stick and learn what those political offices need and fill that need. Nature loves a vacuum and will surely fill it with the first thing that comes along and that includes crap.

Damn, Virginia !

Looks like the whole motherloving STATE showed up! Truly a beautiful thing to see all you Patriots take such a stand. You are officially national heroes in the fight against tyranny and I as a VA native salute each and every one of you. The rest of the country is watching and getting an education.

Tank you !

p.s. wish us luck – we'll need it

The rest of the country is not seeing much, because much is not being shown. Our mass medias are not ours. Another example of selective non-reporting.

@USA – Grandfather clause was probably end goal all along. It is part of the master plan in order to get registration in place – which is necessary for successful confiscation! See New Zealand…

Notice how badly the antis are losing now. As the citizenry continues to wake up from their long slumber, the turnouts of those who will not comply grow and grow. Meanwhile, despite the power of billions of ‘dollars’ in ill-gotten gains distributed to crooked politicians in Richmond, it looks very likely that their hostile takeover will avail them nothing.
Good job, all. This is the way tyranny is defeated. Not by sniveling and whinging, nor by screaming and protesting. What works is to simply stop complying with their evil dictates. It really is that simple. Not EASY… but simple.

Nice imagery, however I’m afraid they’ve already won legislative power which will last until the next election. With luck and courts willing – their tyrannical acts can be stayed long enough, and emotions can be sustained long enough to rectify the situation next time around.
Nothing but death lasts forever. Celebrate a win, but don’t let anyone get complacent.
