Although VCDL tries to concentrate on Virginia laws, sometimes we will
look at a federal law. Jeff Knox, with the Firearms Coalition, wanted
me to pass this on to you as an ACTION ITEM:
I understand that VCDL does not typically get involved in federal
matters, but I would appreciate it if you would let members know that the vote for confirmation of anti-rights extremist Eric Holder to be Attorney General of the United States is scheduled for Monday in the U.S. Senate.
The Attorney General has broad powers regarding firearms regulations and enforcement of federal firearms laws. Having an anti-gun activist like Holder in such a critical position would be very bad for gunowners.
I am urging everyone to call Senators Web and Warner to ask that they vote against confirmation of Holder and that if there is a filibuster, that they not support ending the filibuster.
Eric Holder has many problems from his days as Janet Reno's deputy, but his biggest problem should be his unconstitutional position on gun ownership. Anyone seeking more information about Holder's activities against the Second Amendment can find it at our web site: The Firearms Coalition
