    Since no one has mention it. Who is up for a road trip?

    Code:
    *********************************************************
    1.  VCDL to address Norfolk City Council - plan on being there!
    *********************************************************
    
    It's time for VCDL's to address Norfolk City Council on the Norfolk 
    Police harassing two gun owners and charging a third under an invalid 
    ordinance, all within a few weeks of each other, and all at different 
    locations.
    
    In order to give all of you plenty of notice so that you can attend, 
    VCDL will address Norfolk City Council on Tuesday, August 28th - 
    about a month from now.
    
    You should plan on arriving at 7 PM.
    
    If you want to speak, you can sign up at the meeting or you can call 
    757-664-4268.  You don't have to speak, just having City Council see 
    a room full of "Guns Save Lives" buttons is important.
    
    I have already signed up and indicated what I will be speaking on, so 
    Norfolk City Council should be fully aware that we are coming.
    
    As you might imagine, we want a *huge* turnout, not only from the 
    Tidewater members, but from across the state.  We want the message to 
    be loud and clear, "NO MORE HARASSMENT OF LAW-ABIDING GUN OWNERS!" 
    and "NO MORE ILLEGAL ORDINANCES!"
    
    Hope to see you there next month!
    Post 1600 woot!

    Yessss!!!

    This should be fun! Can I assume there will be some "fellowship time" in a local restaurant after said event? I think we ought to go to some place in the Waterside complex. It's easy to find for those whe aren't familiar with Norfolk, there's plenty of parking, and the symbolism will be really rich. Who knows, some of the cops who figured in this might be on duty that evening!.

    EDIT - not gonna make it. Family member has medical issues with doctor appointments that interfere.

    I'm with you in spirit.

    I'd like to. I'm a tentative "yes" - got some issues to clear up first.

    Probably JUST me, not family, though I'm not sure yet. Would like a carpool buddy if that happens.

    Of course we'll be carrying! We'd be underdressed if we didn't!

    Second week of classes for me, I'd love to, but I really can't....
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I may make a short trip out of it, to take in VA Beach (never been) and maybe even Busch Gardens Europe.

    I'm on the other side of the water but a stone's throw from the ferry.
    Anybody know if you can carry on the ferry?

    I'm tired, thinking "ferry carry" to myself just cracked me up.

    Thanks Philip!

    I e-mailed them about their policy before I saw your reply. I wasn't sure how it operated now.

    Glad everything went smooth for her. Hope the kids had fun at the park!

    I'm not certain I'm going to take the ferry. I'm going to make it weather and heat dependent. Most of the time I can catch the ferry quicker than I can drive in first gear all the way onto 264 and through the tunnel, and that's not even counting the 10 minutes it takes to find a parking spot over there.


    But one way or another I'll make it over for this!

    Problemo. I just got an e-mail back this morning from HRT:

    From: customerservice@hrtransit.org

    Good Morning
    Thank you for contacting Hampton Roads Transit with your concern. HRT policy is that no weapons can be carry on board of any of its vehicles to include the ferry. Sorry for the inconvenience but the safety and security of our commuters is very important. Again thank you.

    Best regards,
