One of my favorite bills has advanced to the floor of the Senate.
I feel that the one place we are losing the struggle for RKBA is in the classroom.
HB 1217, Delegate Lewis, which allows elementary school to offer a
firearms education/Eddie Eagle class passed out of the Senate
Education and Health committee by a 10 to 5 vote and with an
amendment. It now goes to the Floor of the Senate.
All Virginia members, lets get behind this one.

I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

Maybe it will happen in rural districts, but I really don't see nova schools teaching 3rd graders about not handling guns.
As someone who went to public school in nova, I can personally say that that curriculum would conflict with the current curriculum of teaching kids that guns should be completely banned and cease to exist.
Yes, the indoctrination in Arlington public schools is pretty extreme.
I won't get started about the attempts to discredit the Constitution by making us write papers about why the founding fathers were evil racists, plus the glorification of Lenin and Marx...most people probably wouldn't believe it anyway.
