We started the year by attending Lobby Day to attending each pro and anti gun bills in the GA sessions to writing emails and calling ours legislators about the bills we support or opposed. We are almost at the end of the road for the 2017 legislation. Good news is all anti-gun bills were buried this year and several good gun bills got sign in to law by our governor who is a man of his party’s agenda. He did vetoed couple of good life saving gun bills such as, HB 1582, Campbell, military 18 and older can apply for a CHP and SB 1299 by Vogel, protective orders become CHPs. Ironically the Democrats talk so much about protecting women and children but only if it politically concerns their interest. We tried to override several good bills that were vetoed but failed yesterday.
I was watching the feeds yesterday from Philip Van Cleave, the president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League who was at the General Assembly watching the whole showdown.

It’s seems to be a more frequent occurring that we hear people bringing up conversations about their physician having them fill out a questionnaire in regards to their health care plan asking about guns which has nothing to do with the subject whatsoever. The “Affordable Health Care Act” is over a 1000 pages to mask it’s dangerous doses of personal rights violations and gun control is one of the main bullet points.
At my state gun rights group (VCDL) monthly meeting, someone associated to the Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership gave us all attendees handouts with information on what steps you can take to deal with when your doctor asks you about your guns. I want to share it to as many people as I can. Feel free to pass along this valuable information.
You read it right again. According to a more recent study by Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, which cites the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S National Academy of Sciences and the United Nations International Study on Firearms Regulation, the more guns a nation has, the less criminal activity.
The study came from the Harvard Journal of Law, that bastion of extreme, Ivy League liberalism. Titled Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?, the report “found some surprising things.”
It concludes the virtually unpublicized research report by attorney Don B. Kates and Dr. Gary Mauser. But the key is firearms in the hands of private citizens. Continue reading “Harvard University Study Reveals More Guns Equates to Less Crime” »
With the recent mass killings and only a “small” rise of vehicles being used as a weapon, the media, law makers and the public always say we have to do something about the tool that was used. Hardly blaming the person/s. While simultaneously intending to do nothing more vigorously than posting an emotionally charged status on the news and social media.
The usual routine actions that legislators will perform based on the general fear, vague and use the widespread unease to signed another so called “feel-good” piece of legislation that does nothing more to prevent the problem that it supposed to prevent but only hinder law abiding citizens from going about their daily lives.

There are times when the NRA needs to be reminded and slap back to the right. They should do what is right by supporting our country’s constitution as a whole.
With the recent terrorist shootings, NRA-ILA leadership has offer support for legislation that defies what America was founded on. NRA wants to back lawmakers in congress who are in support of an epic failure and dangerous to law abiding citizens, the no-fly list system.
Taken from ammoland.com
We urge the NRA-ILA to work towards enhancing concealed carry reciprocity, among the states, and eliminating so-called “gun free zones”.
- These so-called “gun free zones” kill people. They are exactly what terrorists want; a target-rich environment with no one who can mount an effective defense.
- In 34 states it is legal to carry firearms into establishments that serve alcohol, and this has not proven to be a problem.
- An overwhelming majority of mass killings in America occur in so-called gun free zones.
- Secret government lists have been the hallmark of tyrannical, murderous governments throughout history.
Anti freedom politicians didn’t realize that they would create a boomerang effect when their Attorney General decided to stop recognizing 25 states. Well that didn’t go as planed for them, thanks to the VCDL and all other gun owners who showed up for Lobby Day and pressure from other states as well.
July 1st the new law takes effect. Virginia now is required to recognize all states concealed carry permits. Recently we just gain Nevada and Georgia which I’m extremely happy.
But as soon as the first of this month rolled in, Maine and Colorado just officially recognizes Virginia. New Hampshire should follow soon.
Below is the current reciprocity map for VA concealed handgun permit holders. It’s a beautiful map isn’t it? A year ago I never thought we will this lucky And for those with UT, AZ or FL permits will have one or two more states.

While going about carrying your firearm, ever thought about what would happen if you get taken in to the ambulance and in route to the hospital? A good example will be a vehicle related accident. Most people don’t bring this up or talk about it.
One day you might be in this situation.
The Greg from Active Response Training has some advice about what you should do and need to know. Make sure to check with your local fire/EMS.
Today police finally caught the shooter, a Federal Protective Service employee who shot a woman in a Prince George’s County MD school parking lot Thursday 5 2016. Then again today Friday the 6th he shot others at Montgomery Mall and Aspen Hill grocery store. So far two victims died and other two are injured in the two days shooting by one assailant.
More details on local ABC and WTOP news.
First I want to briefly touch on 3rd party intervention in my previous article What Not To Do As A Concealed Carrier & The Good Samaritan. We as a law-abiding armed citizens have responsibilities to protect ourselves and love ones from violence. Not to use our guns to play police and intervene a 3rd party incident, unless with certain “exceptions” I mentioned in the article linked above.
What’s worse with this case is that the woman at the school who intervened (the news media called them good Samaritan 😕 ) wasn’t carrying a gun, and foolishly walked up to a derange man with a gun. I can’t believe this people, how naive they are? And of course this occurred in Communist Maryland and on school property. Why walked in to a fire without a fire extinguisher?
