  • VCDL Lobby Day January 18, 2021 - Stand With Us Against the Tyranny of Gun Control!

    01/15/2021 8:15:01 AM PST · by Alright2BRight · 10 replies
    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...

    At least one of the group of intruders received some ballistic dissuasion when they entered the store. Thanks to the shop’s camera system, store management and cops have nice quality video of the incident, along with an image of the license plate of the getaway ride. The car’s driver dropped his bleeding buddy at the local hospital’s ER entrance before speeding back to Peoria. The guy they’d left at the hospital is now in the morgue. Meanwhile, cops found the driver/car owner not long after. It wasn’t exactly tough detective work since the (alleged) perp used his own car. Perhaps...
  • Biden expands gun control contingent in his Cabinet

    Democratic Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, two of President-elect Joe Biden’s Thursday cabinet picks, have a history of advocating for gun control, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found. Raimondo, Biden’s pick for Commerce Secretary, pushed for a package of firearms bills in February of 2019, including a so-called “assault weapons” ban, a prohibition on “high-capacity” magazines and a permanent ban on 3D-printed guns, according to WJAR. The governor also spearheaded measures to mandate gun sellers transmit firearm purchase applications to local police departments, require safe gun storage in one’s home and prohibit the carry...

    The day after riots brought the U.S. Capitol to a standstill, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) noted that “several” representatives were happy to be armed while barricaded in their offices. Following the riotous events, Massie tweeted, “The next member who argues Congressmen shouldn’t be allowed to carry firearms at work needs to be laughed out of the Capitol.” He added, “Several of us were glad to be armed while barricaded for hours in our offices with our staff.” Massie co-chairs the House Second Amendment Caucus along with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO). On January 3, 2021 — just three days before the...
  • Rep. Richard Hudson Introduces National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

    Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) introduced legislation Monday to create national reciprocity for concealed carry license holders. Hudson’s legislation, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (HR38), would treat concealed carry licenses like driver’s licenses, recognizing the license from one state as valid in the other 49. This would allow the licensee to cross state lines with his or her firearm, knowing it was legal for them to be armed for self-defense just as it is legal for them to drive a car in a state other than their state of residence.

"Upon further consultation with the Department of Justice and the Office of the Deputy Attorney General, ATF is withdrawing, pending further Department of Justice review, the notice and request for comments entitled “Objective Factors for Classifying Weapons with ‘Stabilizing Braces’,” that was published on December 18, 2020," ATF released in a statement Wednesday.

    Americans bought a record number of firearms in 2020 amid a year that challenged our conventional wisdom about civil liberties, showed us the delicate balance between law and order and even strained the country’s supply chains. While gun sales generally increase in presidential election years, 2020 has been one for the record books, and it still isn’t over. President Donald Trump has vowed to continue fighting to challenge the Nov. 3 election results that show he lost to Democrat Joe Biden in a number of key swing states. Additionally, many states still have their residents under the thumb of some...

    A Cole County man was one of five people in the state selected for Missouri's first elk season in modern history. The five randomly selected hunters from all corners of the state were given the opportunity to hunt elk beginning this October. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) randomly selected the few lucky winners from a pool of 19,215 permit applications including 33 for one resident-landowner antlered-elk permit and 19,182 for four general permits.

    Scrolling through Shannon Watts’s twitter feed, I came across a tweet she “liked”: Now before we say more, let me be clear: We applaud people getting armed and exercising their rights, and have often said (because it’s true) that gun control has its roots in racism. So before you piss in the Cheerios of Moms Demand Action and help show the Huey P.

    In the same way that vaccine makers are exempted from legal liability if someone who gets the vaccine contracts the disease it was that, the liberals trying to do the same thing to gun manufacturer. The purpose behind limiting liability for vaccine makers is because a certain amount of people take a vaccine it will either not work or they will catch the disease the vaccine was made to prevent. There is no 100% prevention for vaccines, but they’re pretty darn close. If vaccine makers were liable to lawsuits, the companies that make vaccines would move overseas. Why allow themselves...
  • The civil war has already begun Exclusive: Erik Rush says a Biden presidency means our liberties 'evaporating very quickly'

    Should Biden secure the presidency, it is almost certain that Americans will see their liberties evaporate very quickly in the coming years. Taking into account the resulting outrage over these developments, it is likely that heretofore law-abiding citizens will gravitate toward citizen militias and even nationalist organizations that may employ terrorist tactics. Once again, such a progression could escalate into civil war. We are most certainly already at war, although few have acknowledged this fact. I've taken some heat for comparing the first few salvos we've seen to actual military engagements and the horror that goes with them, but those...
  • Turley: Third Circuit decision on 2nd Amendment “perfectly tailored” for Supreme Court after Barrett confirmation

    The Supreme Court has become notoriously skittish about Second Amendment cases in the years after Heller. That may change now after a Third Circuit ruling upheld a ban on firearm ownership for felons, even those convicted of non-violent crimes. In a 2-1 decision, the court ruled that a tax-evasion conviction was sufficient for a lifetime removal of Second Amendment rights: At issue in this case is the Second Amendment’s standing as an individual right, argues Jonathan Turley, the basis for the Heller decision. Folajtar “falls into the still grey area” of Heller, Turley writes, especially since the court recognized the...

    “A right unexercised is a right lost” is the motto of many open-carry advocates. Newly-elected Congresswoman Lauren Boebert from Colorado wants to live the model — and do it on the grounds of the Capitol. Liberals and anti-gun nuts are having a cow because Rep. Boebert wants to wear a personal firearm when going to work. She apparently asked the Capitol Police about the law and was told that several members of Congress are already carrying. Capitol Police are not likely to reveal what they told Boebert. The Hill: Capitol Police did not release how many lawmakers carry weapons in...

    Montana is on track to become the 17th state to restore Constitutional Carry. It will probably do so in 2021. Constitutional Carry means most people can carry, concealed or openly, most of the time in most public places, without any special governmental permission or permit. It was the state of affairs in the young United States when the Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791. In 2020, Republican Greg Gianforte won the race for Governor in Montana. Greg is the first Montanan Republican governor since 2005.Greg won with 54.4% of the vote to his Democrat challenger's 41.6%.The former governor, Democrat...
