For the last few years, Dick Saslaw (born in Washington, D.C., raised in the DC suburbs, and educated out of State) and other elitist opponents of human rights, our civil rights and the RKBA have been able to violate the Senate’s Rules in order to kill bills that would have otherwise passed the upper chamber — by picking off bills in sub-committees.

Given the November election, we look forward to fair play and true representative governmental action replacing the oligarchical elitism that has subverted deliberative democracy in recent years.

I'll be adding follow-up information on Lobby Day, as it becomes available. I will, also, be posting a link to VCDL's legislative guide and VCDL's bill tracking site later (or you can keep an eye on the VCDL WEB site: http://www.vcdl.org/

A big turnout on Lobby Day will help impress the fence sitters.

Anyone who supports the RKBAs is invited to join us.

Lobby Day is coming up soon! It is Monday, January 16th - be sure to get the day off so you can help us pack the General Assembly. This could be a good year for gun owners and we need to start that year off right with a strong presence at Lobby Day.

We plan on starting around 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM, with a rally at 11 AM. More details on this to follow.

BUSES

The Roanoke Tea Party has chartered a bus to Lobby Day. The price is $30 per seat and that will cover your trip up and back and the tip for the driver. The bus will leave Tanglewood Mall at 5:30 AM. and may make a stop in the Charlottesville area for a pick up.
