    *******************************************
    1. Video of Champps dinner in honor of Senator Richard "Banjo" Saslaw
    now online!
    *******************************************

    As you might recall, Fairfax County Senator Saslaw told the Virginia
    Senate that anyone who dared to open carry in a NoVA restaurant that
    is licensed to serve alcoholic beverages would be asked to leave.

    We knew that was baloney and had an AP reporter document a series of
    luncheons and a dinner in NoVA, with VCDL members carrying openly as
    required by law.

    The video of the VCDL "Saslaw" dinner at Champps restaurant in
    northern Virginia is now on the VCDL web site! Thanks to VCDL member
    Matt Gottshalk for producing and editing the video - a professional
    job as usual.

    In the video you'll see the general manager of Champps speaking
    first, followed by me, followed by Delegate Dick Black. Delegate
    Black spoke on behalf of Senator Ken Cuccinelli, who had a prior
    speaking engagement that evening.

    You will also see Board member Bruce Jackson explaining briefly to
    other guests in the restaurant why we were there that night, followed
    by all the VCDL members raising their hands to indicate that they were
    lawfully armed.

    VCDL should give out an "award" to the "Most pro gun representative" in our legislature, and it should be a banjo

    WOW!!! THAT was NOTHING like the news articles I read! The articles really made Bruce sound like someone looking for attention when he all he did was very professionally explain to the croud unsensationalisticly why they were there.

    And I go around telling others not to make judgements based on one side of the story! Sorry Bruce, I won't do that again. Saslaw comes out of this really looking like a low life now.

    I have invited Saslaw to dinner with me twice to go see what this is like. He never answered.
    Carry On.

    Apology accepted...Heck, if I did not know me and I read that AP story I would have thought myself to be a bit of a fool too!

    Now, If I could just find all the papers all across America that I posted to as comments to that story I would go back and post the link to the video.
