Fairfax County Virginia 2019 Second Amendment Sanctuary Meeting: the crowed filled a huge auditorium and overflowed. No actions were yet taken by the Board of Supervisors. They need to hear more from gun owners.

Report from VCDL member Zeke Y.

I was at the Board of Supervisors meeting in Fairfax tonight handing out stickers.

The scheduled start time for the public comments session was 16:30. Instead, we started two and a half hours late at 19:00. Turnout was great. According to the fire code sign, the room's max capacity was 440 people and the guards told me we met that fairly early on, I'd guess around 17:15. We had people standing in the lobby to watch on a TV until the auditorium emptied out a little (due to running extremely late and the session before us finally ending)

I talked with two different people about the crowd size. One has worked security in the building since July, and the other has been in the building working at these meetings for 15 years. Both told me this was the biggest turnout to a BoS meeting they'd ever seen.

After the session before us finished, I'd guess there were maybe 380-410 people in the audience, and at least 3/4 of them were pro-gun, judging by the GSL stickers in the room. I estimate I went through 500 or so stickers, and I saw several other people handing out stickers as well.

The board itself was unresponsive and declined to introduce a 2A Sanctuary resolution. The crowd was told to be quieter in our applause for pro-gun speakers several times.

Several of the speeches were good, but I was most impressed with the two pro-gun ladies who spoke. One works in healthcare and got a CHP after a police detective advised her to because they didn't have resources to deal with a mentally ill patient threatening her. The other is a four-time Virginia state champion in a shooting sport, is in JROTC, and a sophomore in high school.

Virginia Beach – City Council will now consider introducing a sanctuary bill in the near future. A massive turnout, estimated at between 1,000 and 1,500 individuals. Filled up the meeting room, down the hall, out the doors and flooded the area at the front of the building. After I addressed City Council, EM Brendan Moonie, Board member Gary Moeller, and I addressed the crowd outside.

York County – Board of Supervisors will vote on a resolution at their next meeting. Big turnout needed for that vote.

The founders clearly proclaimed a powerful truth – and our ultimate solution – in the first 13 words of the 2nd Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…” Step one are the 2nd Amendment sanctuary counties / towns / cities / states that we see coming into being now. But of course – and you can almost certainly carve this in stone – the left will relentlessly push their wildly unconstitutional lawlessness with activist judges through the courts and by any other means necessary, until We The People start directly forming ourselves into… Read more »

Wow…we have sunk so far in a country where the 2nd amendment is supposed to be part of the supreme law of the land that we have to have 2nd amendment sanctuaries. Maybe what needs to be done is establish the militias again and arrest these traitors who violate their oaths and try them for treason.

The function of government is supposed to be to guarantee, uphold and further the people’s GOD given rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happyness, the right of self defense, to keep and bare arms, to vote etc. When government becomes destructive of these ends, it is in the right of the people to alter or abolish it and install new government. We not only have the RIGHT to be civilly disobedient when government over steps it’s bounds, we are MANDATED, OBLIGATED AND MORALLY FORCED to be civilly disobedient until government is righted again. Arm up, carry on.

What you are saying is the ONLY reason for government. It seems to me that we are getting close to a repeat of the battle at Concord.
