    Last night I just watched a live debate between Petersen and Devolites Davis an TV8 News (DC Metro area).

    In response to a question about guns in public buildings, Devolites Davis attacked
    Chap as being linked to "the Virginia Citizens Defense League" the folks who
    "hold gun giveaways in Supervisors' offices."

    Petersen responded that he supports state wide uniformity of gun laws just
    like Mark Warner and just like DD voted in 2004 (HB530/HB483 - see votes at http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp...&val=hb530).

    DD said he was wrong that she only voted for transportation preemption and
    that guns in Fairfax County are not needed b/c FFX is high crime

    Chap corrected her and said she voted for full preemption, including
    possession, and that FFX is a low crime locality, so "my opponent had gotten all the
    facts backward
    ."

    I hope a lot of people were watching and realized what a big lie she was caught making.

    Damn, I wish I had known that was going to be on. I'll have to see if it's on the web somewhere. DD's ads, just like all of the Dems ads are all full of that stuff. She is a true RINO.

    UPDATE:

    Chap's not going to take it . . . ANYMORE!

    See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmbzUAww0lM

    $250.00 buys an additional time slot for Chap - so donate if you have the coin - and let Devolites Davis know you are paying her back for her fanatical efforts to ban private citizen to citizen gun sales in VA! Contact Ms. Devolites Davis at jdevolites@aol.com

    -----------------














    Friends, Virginians, citizens of Fairfax:

    Twenty-five years ago, a band called Twisted Sisterhad a hit called "We'reNot Going to Take It!" That's where this campaign is sitting. For ten months, we have walked this district, meeting voters and spreading a positive message of "new leadership." As we close in on Election Day, our spirits are high. And we're not taking it anymore.

    Our opponents have no message (except slogansthey borrow from us). On TV, it is fabrication, attack, fabrication, attack. Their thought is that we don't have the funds to fight back.

    Wrong.

    Today, we areairing aTV commercial that sets the record straight. Here it is. My opponentdoesn't wantpeople to seeit, because it exposes her State Senatetermas just another "no show" job. Apparently, she only shows up to raise Fairfax County taxes!

    With every donation at http://www.fairfaxsenator.com, we keep this commercial on the air. And we keep our positive message on the ground and in the mailbox. That's the winning combination as we close in on Election Day.

    Please help uskeep thiscommercial on the air (and "no show" legislators out of the Virginia legislature). A donation of just $250.00 buys an additional time slot. As we prepare for Election Day, please contact kathy@fairfaxsenator.com or (703) 349-3361 to help us on Tuesday, November 6th. And, as always, let us know how we can represent you better.

    Sincerely,


    Chap Petersen

    And from yesterday's VCDL.org VA-ALERT:

    --

    **************************************************
    3. Republicans, too: Democrat vs Democrat in the Senate District 34 race?
    **************************************************

    While the Democratic Party has been sending out mailers in NoVA
    attacking candidates for being too pro-gun, a Republican has been
    doing the same thing to a Democrat!!

    Anti-gun and self proclaimed RINO (Republican In Name Only)
    Jeannemarie Devolites-Davis has been distorting the pro-gun voting
    record of her Democratic rival, Chap Petersen.

    Here is a television attack-ad that Devolites-Davis is running
    against Petersen that shows her disdain for gun owners. It also
    doesn't mention that Petersen's votes were matched by the majority of
    Republicans, leaving Devolites-Davis the odd-woman out:

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=iGZkIydbOeY

    What a bizarre campaign Devolites-Davis is running. In a debate on
    Channel 8 in NoVA on Monday, Devolites attacked Petersen for voting
    for full firearms preemption in 2004. Trouble is, and Petersen
    called her on it, in a rare pro-gun move SHE voted for that bill,
    too! Oooops.

    If you live in Senate District 34, contact Devolites-Davis and tell
    her to fill out and return the VCDL Candidate Survey and to stop
    hiding behind negative and misleading attacks on Chap Petersen's gun
    voting-record. Her email address is:

    jdevolites@aol.com

    I've seen that ad running for about a month now, and I don't see how DD thinks it's going to help for her to turn all of the gun owners against her! I'd vote for Chap on that ad alone.

    I don't like Chap's ad either, but every time I've seen the DD ad I've e-mailed her to thank her for airing Chap Peterson ads, and telling her he has my vote.

    I'll probably get banned from the board, but I'm gonna say it, its all politics. All I see here is a bunch of democratsjust telling why they are voting for thier candidate Chap over DD the republicananyway and maybe a few RINOs themselveshere just trying to justify tothemselves why they will vote for a democrat. I'm just a conversative base voter, who it will take something more, considerably moreimportant than this issueto bring me off the base. I OC and CC and I think gun rights are important and will support, but its not the most "important issue". DD will get my vote unless some can prove beyond a mere "ad" that Chap a democrat is worth my vote.

    Troll? Seems to me that Devolites Davis is so far OFF BASE that this post is non-sensical. See ATR's Grover Norquist's comment about Devolites Davis at http://www.atr.org/content/pdf/2004/...ter8-12-04.pdf:

    SNIP

    “These tax-hikers are a dying breed of Republican. They turned against the taxpayers of their state, and past experience has shown that people in the Commonwealth do not appreciate having their wallets raided,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “The last tax hike referendum went down big time, which is why the tax hikers did not take their tax increase to the people this time. These legislators really are ‘Virginia’s Least Wanted’, and they will have to
    deal with the consequences of their actions in 2005, when voters take to the polls.”
    The poster lists the following tax hikers:
    1. Gov. Mark Warner
    2. Sen. Harry Blevins
    3. Sen. John H. Chichester
    4. Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites . . ."

    So what are we to believe? That Grover is not part of the conservative base?

    Just because you have an (R) after your name, you may not be a friend of liberty. Recent history, especially DD's ad,seems to reinforce that.

    I feel sorry for people who are so hard-won by labels that they will refuse to vote for someone with the wrong label.

    You DO have other choices. For example, I've offered my name to those who want to send a message against Puller (VA Senate) or Amundsen (VA Delegate) and write me in instead.

    Oh well. Democracy counts - literally. Chap needs to get more voters to the polls.

    "We have met the enemy and he is us"

    You must be lost then, because THIS board IS about GUN RIGHTS.

    I am a life long Republican, and have worked for R's for some time. In fact, I filmed the Fred Thompson Presidential announcement.

    This election isn't in my district, but if it WAS, I WOULD vote for Peterson.

    I saw Devil-light Davis in "action" during the VCDL lobbying day in Richmond last year, when she paraded school children in front of the news cameras to pimp her legislation to close the non-existant "gun show loophole."

    Fortunately, VCDL got wind of the meeting, crashed it, and basically schooled her and the other gun grabbers on what we though of that issue....in the end, VCDL was seen as the experts on gun matters and Devil-light Davis was shown to be the incompetent fool we all now know her to be.

    Go Chap.

    Personally, for me, RKBA is just about the most important issue.

    Not only because of the weapons themselves, or that without weapons we go from citizens to subjects.

    And not even only because they represent the fundemental right to defend myself and my family not only from miscreants, but tyranny as well.

    The issue represents a fundemental mindset on a whole host of issues, from the fundemental role of government, to what type of person they are. Someone who doesn't trust guns in the hands of citizens is not really mistrustful of the guns - they don't trust the citizens.

    Someone with such a blanket mistrust is someone, IMO, who is not to be trusted themselves. They are likely to legislate against whatever can be construed as dangerous, from personally owned vehicles to cell phones to talk radio to non organic fruits and vegetables. They are the type who want to substitute their judgement for ours, and impose their fears on us all. What's good enough for them has to be good enough for everyone, and anyone else - minority or majority - can go pound sand.


    Without the ability to exercise our 2nd amendment rights, we have no way to defend the other ones.

    I don't know much about this Davis woman. But her opposition to our right to defend ourselves speaks very loudly to me.

    Probably also anticipating his own embarrassing loss in the primaries. I would not vote for him in a primary as he is borderline RINO himself. I have voted for T. Davis in the gen. elections as the Demo. usually is the worse evil.

    Locally, Go Fitzsimmons defeat the very evil and self-serving Chuckie Colgan! I have my son working on his campaign as well as C. Stewart.

    I have NEVER voted anything but conservative...EVER!



    But I sent money to Chap...



    From what I understand, the only conservative stance she has is pro life. For everything else she is a Democrat....a self proclaimed Rhino!
