    4. War memorial disgrace in Danville
    ************************************************** **

    Brave men and women have died face down in the mud to give us the
    right to keep and bear arms. Disgracefully, the AAF Tank Museum in
    Danville has a "no guns" policy! They say they want YOU to respect
    the memory of our soldiers, while the museum makes a mockery of what
    they died for.

    From their web site:

    http://www.aaftankmuseum.com/Tank_Museum.htm#Rules%20&%20Regulations

    This is a Memorial Dedicated to the
    Men and Women of the Armed Services
    Please respect their memory!
    ...

    NO firearms

    ---

    If you would like to send a message to the museum about their
    disgraceful policies, here is their email address:

    aaftank@gamewood.net





    Here is my letter:

    Should I bring my friends and associates to the AAF museum?



    I have been there twice. I used to tell anyone with an interest in your museum. I will no longer do this, since I have learned of your opposition to the civil rights of your customers.



    You want to honor our soldiers, but then dishonor what they fought for with your arbitrary decision to prohibit firearms. That is your choice, and it will affect your business directly.



    I will never return, while this ridiculousness remains. I will continue to speak of your business, but it will be to tell people not to attend.



    I will not bring my friends and relatives.



    If I remember, you are from NY state. That **** does not fly down here in the Old Dominion. Go back, or come correct.

    I seem to remember this identical posting a few months ago. I remember because I did take the time to write a nasty-gram to the museum (to which I never received a reply, of course).

    "If I know that I am headed for a fight, I want something larger with more power, preferably crew-served.
    However, like most of us, as I go through my daily life, I carry something a bit more compact, with a lot less power."
    (unknown 'gun~writer')

    Remington 1911 R1 (Back to Basics)
    SERPA retention or concealed...

    While I saw they are set up as a non-profit organization (great for them)... I did not see anything that indicates they are a private org or an arm of the poliitical structure within the Commonwealth.

    Anyone know?

    It is just some dood, as far as I know. He is from NY state. He angered the locals by getting a big tax incentive for the museum, and then failing to live up to his promises. I read about it over a year ago, so I don't remember any specifics.



    It is definitely not a .gov thang.
