From a VA-ALERT.

VA-ALERT is a project of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc.

[First person pronouns (I, my, mine, etc) reference Philip Van Cleave, President VCDL]

The three statewide candidates who turned in their VCDL surveys just won a crushing blow against their opponents, putting gun owners in a strong position to get some work done in 2010! Bob McDonnell, Bill Bolling, and Ken Cuccinelli won their races handily and VCDL congratulates them!

Have a pro-gun Governor will be a tremendous boost, especially after the last 4 years in the desert. ;-)

By my count the Republicans now have 60 seats, the Democrats have 38, and independents have 2. Those numbers don't necessarily mean much, as some Republicans are anti-gun and some Democrats are pro-gun.

Overall, I would say that the General Assembly is now slightly more pro-gun than it was on November 2nd.

A look at some key House races:

* Pro-gun Tag Greason (100% on VCDL survey) defeated anti-gun incumbent Dave Poisson - this is a huge change of position for District 32.

* Pro-gun Richard L. Anderson (94% on VCDL survey) defeated anti-gun incumbent Paul F. Nichols - a major change of position for District 51

* Pro-gun Bill Cleaveland (94% on VCDL survey) won District 17, pro- gun William Frahlin's old district - a wash, but this win avoided the district falling into less friendly hands.

* Pro-gun Catherine Crabill, who the Republican leadership ran away from after she quoted the ideals of the Founding Fathers about the Second Amendment, LOST, but only by about 3%. That's pretty good for being abandoned by your own party.

* Anti-gun incumbent Chuck Caputo of District 67 lost to Jim LeMunyon, who looks to be another Republican In Name Only (RINO) based on a mostly anti-gun survey he returned to the anti-gunners. He did not return his VCDL survey. So this district looks like a wash, or maybe just a little better. A bad Democrat loses to an almost as bad Republican.

* Anti-gun incumbent Margaret Vanderhey of District 34 lost to Barbara J. Comstock. Neither VCDL nor the antis got a survey from Ms. Comstock, so I can't determine if this is an improvement or a wash at this time.

* Anti-gun incumbent Bobby Mathieson of District 21 lost to Ron A Villanueva. Neither VCDL nor the antis got a survey from Mr. Villanueva, so I can't determine if this is an improvement or a wash
at this time.

* Pro-gun Jeff Fredericks''s old district, 52, went to anti-gun Luke E. Torian by a mere 600 votes over pro-gun Rafael Lopez. Turnout, turnout, turnout!

A big Lobby Day turnout on January 18th is needed - please mark your calendars to be there.

As I have posted on another thread, politicians, at all levels, are known to not "walk the talk", once elected. :aargh4:

Also, politicians, at all levels, are known to vote for a bill they know will be vetoed, so as to avoid the wrath of some of their party's voters on key issues. :aargh4: :aargh4:

We have had politicians vote for this measure, yet turnaround and vote against the veto override. :rant:

Anyone in Virginia who wants this bill and other Pro-RKBA bills signed needs to get active.

See you at VCDL's Lobby day in January.

For an idea of what's coming up see: http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbull...a-legislation-elections-i-support-a2-but.html

BTW -- it's a given that the Antis will have some other bills planned also.

WTH has happened to this country when you can be ostracized for quoting the Founders?
