    RESTAURANT BAN REPEAL - CONTACT GOVERNOR KAINE ASAP

    Now that the restaurant ban repeal has passed the House, we need to
    absolutely bombard the governor with email, phone calls, and letters!

    Let's get the Governor's attention with a breathtaking barrage of
    contacts with a magnitude he hasn't seen before!

    ***Folks, this is the furthest that we have ever gotten the restaurant
    ban repeal in the 13 years we have been trying to get it repealed.
    This is our chance to get that issue put behind us.***

    Get your friends, family and co-workers to contact the Governor and
    ask him to sign SB 476 into law. For those in gun clubs, make
    absolutely sure ever member and their family does this.

    We need to work this and work it hard!

    If you are tired of the restaurant ban and want to move the ball
    forward for the first time on this issue, HERE IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY!
    Trust me on this, DO NOT SIT THIS ONE OUT!

    Time is short, so please start now!

    To contact the Governor, first call him at (804) 786-2211 and leave a
    short message simply asking him to support SB 476 (restaurant ban
    repeal).

    Next, click on the line below to bring up the Governor's electronic
    contact form (if clicking doesn't work, copy and paste the line into
    your browser):

    http://www.governor.virginia.gov/Abo...ctGovernor.cfm

    Fill in your name, address, and email address.

    Paste in the message subject: "Please SUPPORT SB 476!"

    Paste in the following message, or type in one of your own, and then
    click "Submit":

    --

    Please sign SB 476 into law!

    SB 476 allows the most trustworthy group of citizens in the
    Commonwealth, concealed handgun permit holders, to be able to carry
    concealed in restaurants that serve alcoholic beverages. The permit
    holder is prohibited from consuming any alcoholic beverages while
    doing so.

    This bill absolutely does NOT "mix guns and alcohol" because it
    contains appropriate penalties and even a notification provision.

    SB 476 does allow permit holders to enjoy a meal with their families
    without having to either unnecessarily handle a loaded gun & leave it
    in their car, where it can be stolen and used in a crime, or to have
    to carry the gun openly.

    Currently THIRTY-SEVEN other states allow concealed carry in
    restaurants that serve alcohol and have done so successfully because
    of the law-abiding nature of permit holders.

    I urge you to stand with Virginia's 149,000 permit holders and to
    support SB 476!

    Please let me know what you are going to do.
