I have no idea if he will or not. But I'm putting the event on my calendar so that I can go there and try to ask the question.
But we need to remember, it is not Congresscritter Cantor that is directly responsible for our not being allowed to carry for defense of self and family at The Republican Roundup. It is an event sponsored by the 7th District Republican Committee for the purpose of raising funds for their candidate, and they continue to contract with Snag-a-Job Pavillion, a plot of private property which has a no-firearms policy.
So the question needs to be properly phrased. I'm thinking it ought to be along the lines of:
"Why do you continue to accept money from an organization that deliberately refuses to allow citizens to exercise the natural right of self defense? And why do you continue to do that when you have been made aware of the situation over several terms and re-election campaigns? And why do you continue to do that when alternative sites have been identified to you and the 7th District Republican Committee where no such prohibition would be imposed and meet all of the stated criteria of the 7th District Republican Committee for the location of The Republican Roundup?"
Anybody else who wants to copy that down on a 3x5 (or larger) card and have it available to read and/or submit as a written question is hereby granted permission to do so. The only stipulation is that you do not attempt to make money from it without giving me a royalty payment we will negotiate in some other venue than OCDO.
For the record, here are the sites that were identified to VCDL when the first protest of The Republican Roundup at Snag-a-Job Pavillion was being planned (notice that I leave off Chesterfield County Fairgrounds because of the parking issue):
stay safe.Field Day of the Past - Goochland County
Greyhaven Winery - Goochland
Henricus Historical Park
Science Museum of Virginia
Richmond International Raceway
St. Joseph's Villa (questionable about ABC license)
Knights of Columbus meeting site - Gayton Rd.
Powhatan County Fair Grounds
Goochland County Fair Grounds
Henrico County Fairgrounds
Henrico County Parks - several are ABC-license eligible
Deep Run Hunt Club - needs a member to sponsor rental application
Dale Ruritan Club - Chippenham Parkway & Rt 10 in Chesterfield Co.
The above list took me less than 15 minutes of work to confirm ABC license could be obtained and that there had been past events that included "kiddie carnival" equipment set up for at least one event in the past 3 years.
If I had gone to the Greater Richmond Convention Center (another possibility but no "kiddie carnival" events so left off) and Visitors Bureau I'm sure they could have given me about half a dozen more sites.
