What is Lobby Day?
VCDL has been holding Lobby Day since 2002 and it has always been on Martin Luther King Day. This day was chosen because it is in the beginning of the General Assembly Session, many people are off work, street parking is free, and the Delegates and Senators are in their offices.
At least normally.
This year, with COVID-19, things will be a little different, so we've adapted our plan to work with the current situation. Here are some scenes from previous years.
CDL's Lobby Day is a day when normal, everyday Americans go to the Virginia Capitol to tell our state legislators to SAY NO TO GUN CONTROL. We know that gun laws won't stop crime. We know that rights are not negotiable. We know that our voices MUST be heard or legislators will think we don't care what laws they pass.
Why Should I Go? Will It Change Anything?
Over 60 bad gun bills were introduced in 2020 alone! The massive attendance at the 2020 Lobby Day was a major factor in defeating them! The bills that did make it through were severely diminished from their original form.
We're not going to sugar coat it. Bills were passed in 2020 that must be repealed. But many, many bills were defeated, including bills to make semi-automatic firearms and suppressors illegal and to limit magazine size. Another defeated bill would have stopped reciprocity with over 25 states!
We will see all those pieces of legislation back this year and more. That is why Lobby Day 2021 is vitally important! You can be a part of this historic event.
As we said, due to COVID-19 restrictions things will be different this year. The House of Delegates is meeting remotely and the Senate will be in the Science Museum. The Pocahontas Building looks like it will open up, but will probably be highly restrictive as to who can enter. So there's no real reason for us to be in Capitol Square.
This doesn't mean we should not go to Richmond! It just means that we can set our own rules and schedule this year. We've decided to lobby in a different way. We want everyone to know that we are coming to Richmond so we will be in vehicles decked out with VCDL signs and flags. We will form caravans coming from all four corners of the state, with people joining in all along the way, and we will all arrive in Richmond on Monday afternoon.
Will We Break Last Year's Record?
Well, that is up to you! We've already heard from people all over the country who don't want to miss out. No doubt there will be "rumors" and other scare tactics uses to keep people home, but we know better. Lobby Day has been happening for close to twenty years with ZERO incidence of violence. And we don't expect that to change. So pack the family in the car and take a road trip!
Wont change a thing. Democraps control everything and the SC will more or less go along with whatever they want to do or risk the court packing they have threatened. HIDE your guns and don’t let them know who you are is the best bet...
These guys know how to manage a problem free event like this. They have a good track record. So come and enjoy.
Let us start by calling this for what it is and not the mischaracterization used by the left.
It is an attack on Civil Rights. The Democrats are Anti-Civil Rights. This idea is not about reducing crime by confiscation of legally owned property. It is intended to eliminate the ability of the population to defend itself from government or anyone else.
Fifty plus buckets of paint and two painters per bucket could knock that message out in five minutes.
I am cynical too. BUT, it is important to speak while we still can. With a great turnout, the tyrants will be able to see that there is already an armed militia. Hopefully, they determine a need to slow down in order to do more calculations on how to disarm us. One red flag at a time and some unconstitutional tax on our ammo or magazines will not be enough. Last year’s showing did result in the watering down of many of their intended laws.
(btw, I wish I still had my guns, which were all lost in a boating accident.)
And why do you really think the left has 6K troops in DC right now? To show Trump supporters THEIR power no doubt.
What good is a gun if you have to hide it or bury it? If you can’t use it for defense, it is worthless.
I’m sorry, but protesting gun laws on MLK day is a bone-headed move. Just plays into the hands of the opposition. Don’t make it easier for them. Use Valentine’s Day instead.
He had Republican beliefs but from what I read he voted in the democrat party. Now in the general he may have voted GOP.
