Governor Northam has wasted no time to call a special session after the Virginia Beach Municipal shooting. VCDL is mobilizing to keep our gun rights intact. Here is the Facebook page link:

https://www.facebook.com/events/441363596411224/

Details:

Mark your calendars! VCDL is officially going to have a Special Session Lobby Day on Tuesday, July 9, starting at 9 a.m. This event is critical! With razor-thin margins in the House and Senate, a single legislator defection could spell disaster.

We need to have a huge Lobby Day, as this special session is aimed squarely at our gun rights and our liberty. Please attend this event if there is any way possible. Tell your employer NOW that you need to take the day off on Tuesday, July 9th. The gun-controllers will be there, fully supporting the Governor's agenda.

We will meet at the Bell Tower on the Capitol grounds at 9th and Bank streets in Richmond and we will go into the building in groups. No lobbying experience necessary! Everyone will be given a "Guns Save Lives" sticker to wear. We want the building and committee hearing rooms flooded with people wearing them.

Each group will have a handout to give to each assigned legislator or their aide. More details will follow as the date gets closer, including carpooling options for those who are not reasonably close to Richmond. Ad Hoc groups will be formed for those arriving late.

There may well be committee or subcommittee hearings later that day, so we might need as many people as possible to hang around and flood the hearing rooms. The session may go on for days, so if you can attend committee or subcommittee meetings on other days, please do so!

If you are a member of a gun or hunting club, share this information about Lobby Day with club's leadership and have them email it to all the club's members! Do the same for any Legislative Action Items, too. All hands on deck!


TEAM LEADERS NEEDED

If you have attended a Lobby Day before and would like to be a team leader, contact EM Ken Van Wyk, who is coordinating the teams. You can reach Ken at: LobbyDay@vcdl.org

Team Leaders are responsible for:

knowing the locations of their assigned legislators (we will provide help on how to do so)

making appointments with assigned legislators

leading a team from one assigned legislative office to the next

providing each legislator or their aide with a copy of the VCDL Legislative Summary

politely introducing your group as a VCDL delegation

asking the legislator (either directly or through their aide) to support VCDL's positions on behalf of Virginia gun owners and

steering the general discussion of the meeting

VCDL will provide you with an after action report to fill out which records your assessment of the contacts.

Team Leaders are NOT responsible for recruiting teams, there will be plenty of volunteers available that morning to draw from. Team Leaders are also NOT required to do all the talking. In fact, having different people speak on different bills can be more engaging.

Facebook advertising paid for by The Virginia Citizens Defense League.

If you are a gun owner in Virginia you need to attend.

Imho, the Governor choose the date knowing many wouldn't be unable to attend and oppose his anti freedom views.

So, for those that can't attend. PLEASE contact your elected officials and let them know you oppose Gun control in all forms.

Gov. Northam's anti-gun political stunt failed today!
This should be a reminder to all Second Amendment advocates and freedom lovers that the Governor and his Trolls will keep trying.
