    Happy Easter from Norfolk, VA

    I am an active duty Corpsman stationed on a ship here in Norfolk. After deploying all over this great world I have come to treasure what I have taken for granted all this time. As an American and as a woman.
    I am from Maryland and although I love my home state I do not like the restrictions placed on me as a gun owner. As a domestic violence survivor I was told that I was unable to obtain a CCW permit because his repeated death threats were not a 'valid reason'. Thankfully he never carried through on his threats and I was able, after time, to close that chapter in my life.
    I am with a wonderful man for 5 years now who after hearing my story presented me with a Bersa 9mm for my birthday.
    I am going to city hall here in Norfolk tomorrow to apply for my CCW and I am pretty excited to leave the victim class once and for all.

    If FMF Corpsman, double WELCOME. Doc.

    You only been on the Blue Side -- e.g., Hospitalman?

    Welcome aboard.

    BTW -- If any problem with Norfolk & the CCW, please contact VCDL.

    Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. (VCDL) or send me a private message.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    Wow! I went off to explore the board a little more and didn't expect such a warm welcome. Thank you all!

    DaveH, no I am not an FMF yet but I am stationed on an LHD and have earned the respect of many a Marine (an still count quite a few of them as good friends) the big one being my grandfather. It seems that old Marines will still listen to a Corpsman! LOL
    What part of SW VA are you from? I have family scattered from Lynchburg to Roanoke.
