    A year ago there was a senator or rep. who said nobody carries in a restaurant. Gun owners proved him wrong by showing up in force to a eating establishment. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and can anyone find the news footage if you do know what I'm referring to? It's in this VIR. forum but I can't find it.

    If you're talking about Fuddruckers, where over 125 OC'ers showed up, the only news footage is here (That I know of anyway)

    The one I'm thinking of occurred last year or so and what I saw was video news footage from one of your local stations. It might be long gone now, but I saw it in one of these forums last year, so I'm just asking as a shot in the dark. Don't sweat too much over this. I'm just trying to find some video of lots of OCers in one place. I'm sure there are some of that in Vir.

    Contact VCDL. They have a very active and very good, video person, who is certain to have a lot of footage.

    Dick "Banjo" Saslaw.

    For those who missed that part of the story, it was Lobby Day at the General Assembly a few years back. Virginina Citizen's Defense League members were thick on the ground lobbying legislators while wearing their bright orange Guns Save Lives stickers.

    Senator Dick Saslaw got on an elevator and commented to someone that it looked "like half the cast of Deliverance" was there. Unknown to Saslaw, a VCDL member was right behind him in the elevator!

    That story, of course, caused a bit of a sensation when it got out. So, Dickwas assigned the "banjo"moniker in referenceto the dueling banjos scene in Deliverance.

    It was Dick who made the comment about restaurants and carry. It mightbe searchable on VCDL's website.


    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Wonder is Saslaw will have found a cure for his hoof-in-mouth disease before Lobby Day (1/18/10) next year?

    I seriously hope not! I am so looking forward to a group visit from VCDL to The Honorable Mr. Saslaw's office and capturing the event in pixels.

    stay safe.
