So we just try to get recalls started? Thats one option but in any event that will take much longer than the remainder of this session. So we fight the battle we have.

And as far as your voice going lower is that an indication you may be going to shut up? Or should I expect to be hacked, doxxed, stood up, knocked down, or what?

So what did you do to expand gun rights in your state and nationally today?

Lobby day got the attention of 22,000 who showed up. And the attention of many more who could not. And the friends, neighbors, co-workers, spouses, and other relatives of those.

The vast majority of those will be paying attention come election day.

It additionally had a large number in the building lobbying the Legislators on the bills on the docket. In the past we have been there with 400-500 people lobbying for VCDL. Among a couple thousand others lobbying on various issues.

This time there was 22K on one major issue. I suspect it got noticed.

And one more time, what else would you recommend.

What did you do on the issue?

And the Million Mom March collapsed because they didn't take advantage of their momentum.

There is still a fair number of VCDL organized people in the buildings lobbying and appearing at committee hearings to keep pushing on the issues. This ain't over on our end.

Nemo, what right do you believe gives you this presumption to ask ~ publicly, then continue to demand a response about my advocacy activities? My activities have been and will continue to be private and personally achieved known only to those close cohorts who have a need to know.

therefore, i will not facilitate nor entertain any further nonsensical commentary about the subject so please cease as your self-fulling my pappy's adage!

What right? Well hows this for a start-- you seem to like to squawk about the complete uselessness and failure of anything I am doing or involved in regarding gun rights in politics, so I seek you to share wisdom and guide me to productive activities.

And with my useless actions I have at least bothered someone a bit. So I still ask-- what have you done?

I claim no right except that necessary to answer someone who believes my actions are worthless yet does nothing other than to believe that.

And no, I do not to the ham radio stuff.

So what should have been done?

Nemo
JMO . But, since the rally has had no effect on the Richmond tyrants, I would advise them to repeal and withdraw all gun regulation within 9 days or VCDL will withdraw from further discussion, will not comply, and will throw its support behind the already sizable grassroots move in the majority of VA counties to leave VA and join W.VA.

Talk and voting is not going too save VA at this point.

So what of us who live in areas that do not choose to leave? We just listen to Northam yell BOHICA?

Litigation, talk and voting must continue.

That would be an individual decision, though I dont see the problem.
Simply move to a county that does.

Or dont and continue the futile efforts of litigation, talk and voting.
None of the three stopped the tyrants from getting where they are now.

They wont remove them. VA now falls into the category of New Jersy concerning guns and will remain so. Unless active non compliance is wide spread rendering the new decrees unenforceable.

Perhaps that will happen , but I think if it were going to it would have happened while 22000 armed citizens were gathered at the seat of power.

So you have a choice .
Support the succession effort occurring in the majority of counties to leave VA gov behind. Rendering Richmond ruling over 10 counties.
Or keep doing what didnt work in the hope that doing the same thing will get a different result.

that is status quo and the politicians have nothing to fear...so those activities haven't produced results & WILL NOT WORK!

VCDL, et al., needs to initiate with publicity out the derrière using social & newspeek media, that recall activities are being started against the governor & several of the other goode olde boys, one lower and one higher [their choice] over the waste of taxpayer $$$ spent on lobby day and their other stupid legislative activities...

you will see the channels of dialogue open but VCDL, et al., should strictly refuse those advances as it is a sign of weakness, leads everyone goes back to status quo, and shows those being recalled VCDL, et al., didn't mean it and was nothing more than an attempt to garner attention...
