Thread: CHP's in Fairfax County
I just wanted to take a moment to give a deserved good mention for Carol Snow, Fairfax County Circuit Court Deputy Clerk.
I noticed my name omitted fromthe Roanoke Times' CHP database. Rather than wait for a police officer to check my permit at some future stop, and have a problem because I wasn't in theVSP database, I called Carol Snow to get it sorted out.
I left her a message at noon, giving heran idea what I wanted andthe file numberfor my permit,telling her I would call back in the afternoon. By the timeI returned fromsome appointments in the mid-afternoon, she had leftmea message: She hadpulled my file, checked it,called VSP and confirmed that I was in fact in the database. Her message was pleasant and showed concern that I had maybe been unable to buy a firearm.
I returned her call just to thank her, even though I had what I wanted--name in VSP database. Shereiterated thatshe was concerned that maybe I had been unable to buy a firearm, adding the possibility that thedatabase-absence had come up in a traffic stop.
She said she sometimes faxes permit info if needed for a gun purchase, I guess to VSP. I didn't get into details about the circumstances.
I wish all gov't employees were that friendly and helpful.
I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.
If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?
There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
