Virginians,


Time is short. House Bill 961, the Northam Gun Ban, is in the State Senate Judiciary Committee, and could be on the agenda for a vote this week.

We must not be the generation of Virginians that allows liberty to be destroyed.

It is that simple.

We need every single patriot to act now, and work to defeat House Bill 961. As I type this we are beginning to deploy tens of thousands of phone calls and it is vital that you act as well.

From banning adjustable stocks, forward grips, standard capacity magazines, barrel shrouds and a whole host of semi automatic firearms, House Bill 961 is nothing short of tyranny. And we need your help to stop it.

There are several key actions you must take to STOP the Gun Ban, and we need every single one of you to help us.

First, you need to call the following State Senators and tell them they must vote against House Bill 961 in any form-

- Jennifer Boysko (D-33)- 804-698-7533
- Creigh Deeds (D-25)- 804-698-7525
- John Edwards (D-21)- 804-698-7521


These Senators are in the Judiciary Committee. Right now they control whether or not the Gun Ban ever receives a full floor vote.

And so it is vital that you tell them that we sent you, and that they must vote NO on any form of House Bill 961

Next, you need to sign our 'Defend the 2nd Amendment' Petition at this link. And then share the petition with your friends and family to urge them to sign as well. We are working to deliver tens of thousands of signed petitions to these key senators, but we need your help to do so. So please sign and share our Defend the 2nd Amendment petition today.

Third, our Minutemen have been working tirelessly, making phone calls and sending emails, for over a month. These dedicated patriots are freedom's first line of defense here in the Commonwealth. They receive updates daily on actions they can take that will directly impact the efforts of the out of control radicals in Richmond. If you are willing to join their ranks and dedicate the time needed to stop these unconstitutional bills, please click on this link and join the Virginia Minuteman Program.

Next, you need to call State Senator Lynwood Lewis (D-6). Lewis stated in this editorial he would never support a ban on firearms or accessories as House Bill 961 does. In fact, on January 29,2020, Lewis said in the Shore Daily News , "As I stated publicly before the Session and as was reported in Eastern Shore news media I will not be supporting any type of ban legislation whether on a particular type of firearm or a particular type of magazine."

That article is linked here.

While we do not agree with Senator Lewis' stance on Red Flag Gun Confiscation, Patchwork anti-gun laws or Universal Gun registration through background checks, it is key that you call Lewis at 804-698-7506 and remind him of his promise NOT to support legislation like House Bill 961.

As the session winds down, we are using political ammunition faster than we can raise it. In the next three weeks, the fate of your right to keep and bear arms will be decided. And we need political ammunition more than ever. As volunteers, we rely on donations, unlike those radical anti-gunners funded by Bloomberg's out of state millions. To be frank, I do not want to see Northam's Gun Ban pass simply because we ran out of ammunition to stop it.

So if you can donate $100 today, it would help us send out emails like this one, run thousands of phone calls and texts and reach gun owners in key districts.

I would be forever grateful if you would donate $100 to our efforts today at this link.

If you can donate more, please do so. For you see, for every $100 donated, we can send out over 3400 phone calls.

We are all volunteers and have been working 20 plus hour days to defend your right to keep and bear arms. Give us the ammunition to do so.

And finally, do share this email with your friends and family, urging them to act as well. For only by the sheer weight of numbers can we stop Northam's Gun Ban.

Remember, be sure to call the following State Senators right now. Tell them VCC sent you and that they must not vote for House Bill 961 in any form!

- Jennifer Boysko (D-33)- 804-698-7533
- Creigh Deeds (D-25)- 804-698-7525
- John Edwards (D-21)- 804-698-7521


With your help, we will not be the generation that allows the flame of liberty to be extinguished in Virginia, but we need you to act.

In Liberty,

PS- Remember you need to call State Senator Lynwood Lewis (D-6). While we do not agree with Senator Lewis' stance on Red Flag Gun Confiscation, Patchwork anti-gun laws or Universal Gun registration through background checks, it is key that you call Lewis at

Thanks VA Mike-
I will be here and I hope everyone else from Hide that can make it is as well. We are running out of 'legal' chances to stop this horrible violation of the Constitutions from becoming law. Once its law, we have a HARD road to change it - a new political leadership that has the will and power to change it and/or a court ruling that takes years.

COME ON GUYS - TURN ON FOR THIS IMPORTANT MEETING.

I have dental surgery scheduled on Monday. Tried to move it to another day but no cigar.

If anyone needs gas or lunch money for yourself or a friend, please PM.

Thank or Spank your VA Delegate here



Thank you for your ongoing efforts to oppose HB 961, the grossly misnamed “Assault Weapons” bill.

This radical bill, which bans commonly-owned firearms, passed this week on a close vote of 51 Yeas to 48 Nays.

The bill also bans magazines holding more than 12 rounds. As stated by Breitbart:

There is no grandfather clause for magazines, which means Virginians … will have to destroy or surrender those magazines [holding more than 12 rounds], should HB 961 pass the Senate and be signed into law.
On Tuesday, all Republican Delegates voted “No.”

Every Democrat — except for three — voted “Aye.” The three Democrats who voted correctly were Delegates Lee Carter (Manassas), Steve Heretick (Portsmouth), and Roslyn Tyler (Brunswick County).

One Democrat “voted” present: Delegate Kelly Convirs-Fowler. You can see how everyone voted here.

Contact Your Delegate Based on His or Her Vote
We have prepared “thank you” and “spank you” letters for the 99 Delegates who voted:

1) Thank You Letters. If, from the description given above, you know that your Delegate voted correctly, you can click here to thank him or her for opposing gun and magazine bans.

2) Spank You Letters. If you know that your Delegate voted for gun confiscation, you can click here to SPANK your legislator for casting such a horrendous vote.

NOTE: If you are unsure of who your Delegate is or how he/she voted, then you can click BOTH of the above links and take action. Don’t worry, the system will know the correct message to send and will only sent one email.

In a future email, we will provide letters to send to your Senator. But right now, it’s important that your Delegate hear from you.

So please take action to put on the heat — or to encourage — your Delegate as the situation deserves.

Just to reiterate: If you are taking action using BOTH the Thank and Spank messages — because you are unsure how your legislator voted — the correct letter will be been sent to your Delegate after you have taken action using both links.

Again, the system will NOT allow an incorrect message to be sent to a Delegate. So if your Delegate voted wrong — and yet you fill out the Thank You letter — your Delegate will NOT get a thank you letter (or vice versa).

Thanks so much for your help. And stay tuned for alerts focusing activism to the Senate.



Again, the link is to the quoted text and letter is here

Public parking decks around. Being it’s a State holiday (I think), you should be able to park on the street and not have to feed the meter. I don’t follow the state holidays so verify that before parking on the street for free.

I'm going to try to make it down there, for those that have never been, will be there be a place to meet up. What about parking?
great to hear.
I like the parking situation and infil/exfil SOUTH of the capital. Exit 74A off I-95 South, lots of parking garages on 15th and 14th Streets, right off highway (1/10 of a mile). Park and walk 2-3 blocks north to capital.
In terms of meeting up, I have no idea. My ETA is 0700 and I'm just going to park and walk up, looking for evidence of the meeting.

@Trigger Monkey
I remember you from a @Hogstooth (Little) match up in PA. You are coming from Clarke Cty, I believe. Thanks for making that trip. I will look out for you and say hello if I see you.
If I remember correctly the Monkey and I did a deal here many years back. Hope you can make it.

Source please.
I don't want a fucking deal. Nor do I want their pocket knives or Yeti coolers. I want them to do what I give them money to do. FIght for our rights.
Don't get me wrong, The NRA is powerful and I'm glad we have them. I just wish they would not give in on certain things in the past.

Rumor is NRA could be trying to cut a deal with the democrats in Richmond....
There is no compromise on this bill, it is absolutely too bad!
We must really be prepared to be there in the morning.
Make your voices heard, we can stop it, as I have said many times before.

No compromises. Stand your ground. This is ridiculous. Do y’all need some Deep South people to come help you out? Nip this shit in the bud.
Maybe one day,
Virginia is a lot more than NOVA and tidewater, they just will not go vote for some reason. Its like " oh, that doesn't effect me and what I do on this hill of mine, I do what I want, nobody comes here and bother me"
well now it is. Most of them don't even know about all the laws that are on the docket, guns, hunting with dogs, etc
Talk about an eye opener.
I've tried to get people involved. I own a small company and I tell all of my employees if they are regestered to vote I'll pay them for the day off if they will go vote. I don't care how they vote but just vote.
But, we will take all the help we can get, this isn't just a Virginia thing, this will resonate through out the country.

First let me say I am as Pro 2A as anyone, that's why I am doing what I do constantly...
This is a side not but worth mentioning, the hunting with dogs thing.

I am a dog owner and have bred champion bloodline line Boxers for many years in the past.

So I know dogs...

What I can tell you is about 75% of (deer) dog hunters where I live are a constant nuisance.
They drink while hunting and constantly think that respecting private property is optional.

They turn their dogs loose on my land while I am hunting, effectively running all of the deer off my land.

I have had numerous run ins where aggression was necessary to make them leave.

So yes, I am ok with the good dog hunters in Va but not the sorry ones.

We need something done about those who don't respect human life, safety rules and private property.

Anyways, what concerns me is that if you give politicians an inch then they take a mile.
