    VA: a small victory in Prince William County

    Our troubles in VA are not just at state level, but also at the county level in places like the northern VA suburbs. People have engaged county supervisors to push against proposed 2A violations associated with our county switching from red to blue this past election. One of the egregious proposals was Resolution 10A. Due to pressure from pro-2A residents, the D majority board *unanimously* tabled the resolution indefinitely.

    I had a pleasant email exchange with one of the supervisors last week, and know she worked this hard behind the scenes. She sent this out today:

    January 21st Board of County Supervisors Evening Meeting Cancelled

    Folks:

    At our January 14 Board of County Supervisors meeting, Supervisor xxxx made the motion to strike down the 10A resolution on gun control. The Board voted unanimously in favor of striking the resolution from further consideration. As a result, the evening meeting on January 21st has been cancelled.

    Thank you for your engagement. Be assured that we will continue to monitor any future resolutions that relation to the 2nd Amendment.

    Regards,
    xxxx

    Prince William County will remain a Constitutional County and the following proposals will not be recommended to state lawmakers by the county:

    The board’s resolution, which is now on hold indefinitely, would have amended the board’s 2020 state legislative agenda to recommend that state lawmakers:

    Pass the proposed “red flag” law to temporarily limit access to firearms by people deemed dangerous “while preserving due process;”Require background checks for all gun purchases through a federal firearms license;*Limit children’s access to firearms to reduce suicides and accidental shootings;*Provide additional state funding for firearms safety education;*Waive the sales tax on gun safes and gun safety locks;*Strengthen penalties for adults who allow children unsafe access to guns*
    Ride hard, shoot straight, always speak the truth

    Excellent!
    Unfortunately there are many gun owners who will still shop at Wal Mart even though they know Wal Mart partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety just because it is convenient and they can save a few bucks.
