U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On August 5th, the Surry County Board of Supervisors will consider banning firearms in certain public places. Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to OPPOSE the proposed Section 20-67.

Please click the “Take Action” button or click here to contact the Board of Supervisors.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

The proposed Section 20-67 prohibits firearms, ammunition, and components in public buildings, public parks, and on public streets and sidewalks where, or adjacent to where, certain events are occurring. There are no exemptions for storage in vehicles or for concealed handgun permit holders. This prohibition applies to both permitted events and events that “would otherwise require a County permit,” making it extremely difficult for law-abiding citizens to determine which areas might be, or might become, “gun-free zones.” Individuals who live in an area where an event is occurring may not enter or leave their own property with a firearm. Because this ban includes “components,” citizens may find themselves in legal trouble for accidentally entering one of these vague “gun-free zones” with something as simple as a shell casing forgotten in a pocket or accidentally left in a vehicle.

Again, please contact the Board of Supervisors and ask them to OPPOSE the proposed Section 20-67.

Too bad the nra blew all the membership money on the skunk, li’l wayne La P u’s suites.
Otherwise they might be able to do more than just talk about the loss of 2nd amend. rights.

But li’l wayne will sure look spiffy when letitia puts his thieving ass in prison.

Evidently the lawmakers of Virginia consider each article of our Constitution to be binding, only if they support it. Otherwise, they are free to pass infringing laws as they please, without public support or repercussions. Are we expected to believe that our Constitution and it’s amendments were written to serve only as suggested guidelines to be considered when contemplating new laws or modifications to those already in existence? I firmly believe that is NOT what the 2nd amendment drafters intended and any attempt to pass a law contrary to the amendment is an infringement and should be addressed accordingly.
