    Last year VCDL was had a tool to help us e-mail our state rep for which bills were coming before committee on a daily basis. Are they going to do that again this year or should we just begin contacting reps from the VCDL web page?

    I don't want to waste effort on bills that are going to be combined or dropped early on, but I don't want to let anything slide either.

    NOW!



    Now begins the time where Membership needs to get very active in
    letting the Legislature know what we want them to do. You will be
    getting important messages like this one throughout the next few weeks
    as gun bills begin to move and we will need you to take action quickly.

    Let's FLOOD the General Assembly with email from gun owners! There
    are 13,000 of you on VA-ALERT and we need all of you to make your
    voices heard. And don't worry, we have made this simple to do.

    We need you to start by contacting your Senator on two bills
    IMMEDIATELY: the restaurant ban repeal bill and the so-called "gun
    show loophole" bill.

    We also need you to contact your Delegate IMMEDIATELY on a bill that
    prohibits guns being banned from locked vehicles in parking lots while
    at work or otherwise on private property.

    Just click on each of the three links below to send a PREWRITTEN (but
    editable) message to YOUR Senator or Delegate automatically. Fill in
    YOUR email address (we already know your Senator's and Delegate's
    email address) and your physical address and, voila, you are done!

    Click here to send a message SUPPORTING Delegate Pogge's bill, HB 171,
    that provides that a business cannot prohibit an employee or other
    person from having a gun in a locked vehicle while parked on the
    business's property. In return the business gets certain legal
    protections:

    You beat me by 12 minutes Ed.

    This is something everybody needs to do and it is easy.
