    Two Virginia Anti-Gun Bills Defeated in Committee Today!

    Tuesday, January 27, 2009

    Thank You for Answering the Call to Action!

    The Senate Committee on Local Government defeated two anti-gun bills today, both by a 10-5 vote.

    Introduced by State Senator Maime Locke (D-2), Senate Bill 832 would have banned firearms in any building owned or operated by a locality (such as a recreation center, administrative building, or public library) while any official governmental meetings were being held inside.

    Senate Bill 1053, authored by State Senator Mary Margaret Whipple (D-31) would have given localities the authority to outlaw firearms in any buildings or facilities used for governmental purposes.

    Anti-gun advocates, including the Virginia Center for Public Safety, spoke in support of these bills. These bills would have endangered public safety by restricting the rights of law-abiding Right-to-Carry permit holders from defending themselves in a public place. In addition, these bills would have gutted Virginia’s preemption statutes by creating a confusing patchwork of firearms laws throughout the state.

    Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call to oppose these attacks on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Without you, these victories would not have been possible.

    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse.... A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.----John Stuart Mill

    It is the little victories that add up. They sounded like pretty stupid bills.
    Don't confuse enthusiasm for competence

    Just as stupid and IMO, far more effective at eliminating any opposition to tyrannical government:

    Thank God it didn't pass....wonder how long before something like it will.
