    Chalk one up for the Dillon Rule!

    Not OC or even gun related, but very pertinent to many of the issues we face with State/Local laws.

    Orange County imposed an ordinance restricting the creation of subdivisions beyond what was allowed in the State Code. Judge said no, Virginia is a Dillon Rule state, you can't do that.

    This is big news!

    This is happy news to me! On the issue of camping prohibited in Virginia (by county zoning ordinances) on one's OWN LAND, I have always been told, there is a free rein for localities to do what they want in matters of zoning, and that the Dillon Rule cannot be used to stop them, and permit us our liberties to use our land as we see fit, as long as it does not hurt our neighbor's rights. I was told to just accept it. Wellllllll, this seems to show that there IS a limit to zoning tyranny, even under the Dillon Rule. Here is an example of patriots' labors being rewarded, and it should encourage us all, to do our parts in our little corners of the Old Dominion! The battle takes a sharp turn for liberty!

    Hey, Libtards, it's the "Bill of Rights," not the "Bill of Needs" . . . . .

    If the 2A does not apply to modern weapons, then the 1A does not apply to modern communications like the Internet! How do you like them apples!?
