VCDL Lobby Day 2016 Report

lobbyday16-2

 

Governor Terry McAuliffe and his Attorney General Mark Herring kicked the hornet’s nest. After denying 25 states (6 million people) permit holders and restricting firearms in state buildings. On January the 18th , we had over 1200 freedom, Second Amendment supporters showing up despite the frigid temperatures. This huge turn out send a strong message to Virginia law makers.

A lot of folks met with their delegates, senators and house of representatives. Private groups and VCDL teams covered every legislator’s office and many legislators saw three or even four teams come by! Handing out printed papers with the bills we support and ones we opposed. Each bill has comments elaborating them and reader-friendly. VCDL 2016 Legislation Tracking Tool

The general assembly building was pack almost every floor with people wearing guns save lives stickers. The anti-gunners were outnumbered big time. ūüėÜ
We had one Senator Dave Marsden with his silly banner saying ” Welcome gun lobby day lobbyday16-8members. I know you mean well. But, if it isn’t to much trouble, please stop trying to save our lives… Too many people are getting killed in the effort
Doesn’t he know criminals are the trouble ones? Many people open carrying posted and took pictures in front of his banner. And by the way, over a thousand loaded guns were carried in to the general assembly and not a sing shot fired. It was probably the safest place to be in Virginia at the time. No one started shooting anyone over disputes, arguments or such. The progressive left always say angry gun owners, and someone is going to get shot, woo… We can’t have to many guns! OMG!

The elite democrats have gone overboard, they are desperate to push their agenda, now they¬†want to rewrite the 2nd Amendment altogether. Check this out,¬†“to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.¬†Are you kidding me? What other purposes are they referring to? Now here is the original phrase¬†taken from the 2nd Amendment, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”¬† Insanity screams here, are they going to try to remove or change the 1st Amendment too? Of course they are. Here is an example;¬†Yale students sign ‘petition’ to repeal the first amendment. Starting with the schools and colleges, the left¬†are planting the seeds of socialism in to our children’s¬†minds.

Defensive Shooting Myths and Misconceptions: ‚ÄúI shoot that gun really well.‚ÄĚ

sheild

As most of us know that today’s common caliber handgun rounds are not true power stoppers. Premium hollow points does help a lot. Just because your caliber preference is for the largest you can control and shoot in a relax state of mind at the range, it doesn’t mean you will effectively neutralize your assailant in the shortest time possible while under stress. Your are in a tense moment, you got a moving target advancing towards you, the faster you can place those followup shots on target, the better. The more rounds your pistol can hold is a plus. Remember, your goal is to stop the threat ASAP and survive!
Speed, precision, accuracy are the goals and recoil is they magic factor. The less the recoil the better you can control your gun. Those who can control a 10mm or a .44 magnum will probably be able to better control smaller calibers. “Shooting well‚ÄĚ in the defensive context means being able to control realistic strings of fire, not single shots.

This is a great article and a must read for anyone who owns a handgun and carries one daily for self defense.

H&K VPN9 Torture test (video)

VP9TT

A lot of folks out there really like the H&K’s new striker fired pistol, the VP9. It feels great in your hands and shoots very accurate. But before you get one and fully¬†trust your life with it, let’s find out how reliable it is by doing some torture tests. Thinking¬†you’ll never go¬†through such¬†harsh environments or situations where your¬†gun gets¬†thrown, don’t be so sure that it¬†will never happen. I never like to jump on a new product that just gets introduce in to the market. It needs to have a longer track record. I would say at least 4 years (but that’s a person preference) just like¬†with the¬†the M&P Shield. On the other hand,¬†the¬†Glock 43 is probably on great reliable gun but it just came out.

This torture test was done by The Military Arms Channel.
Can the VP9 take a beating and still function like the Smith & Wesson M&Ps and Glocks? Time to find out!

Do You Know the Dangers of ‚ÄúUniversal Background Checks‚ÄĚ?

Warrentless Door to door searches

Do you really know the full effects of Universal Background Checks and what the government will have to do to enforce it?
They are not just regular background checks. Those UBC will require all gun transfers, even private gifts between friends and family, must go through a FFL gun dealer. It might not seem that malevolent at first, but it is.
Sharing firearms for informal target shooting: Another legitimate activity outlawed by Everytown‚Äôs ‚Äėuniversal background checks‚Äô
The United States does not have a crime problem caused by people who borrow a gun for an hour of skeet shooting on somebody‚Äôs farm. Yet the Bloomberg laws turn these people into criminals. As with so much of the Bloomberg Trojan horse called ‚Äúuniversal background checks,‚ÄĚ innocent and law-abiding persons bear substantial burdens, for no benefit in public safety.

Bloomgerg’s Background Check Law Impedes Firearms Safety Training

 

Dave Kopel gives a great detail explanation on¬†the¬†failure of¬†Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety background checks is. This is a much watch video (publish by VaShootingSports YouTube channel) to fully understand of this disaster. This goes against our civil rights as well.

As passed in Washington and Oregon, it applies to all transfers, including the private transfers of sharing a gun while target shooting or lending a gun to a friend for a hunting trip. It has the knock-on effect of interfering with most firearms training, vital to armed self-defense. A further effect is a de facto handgun ban for persons under the age of 21 

Obama and comrade’s are finalizing executive action on gun control

 

kingdumba

Today with more than half (52%) of all Americans opposing stricter gun control laws and more are supporting concealed carry that makes the country safer, King Obama is on his own here. He is doing this¬†without congressional approval ūüĎŅ ¬†I can’t find any details just yet on what exactly are those illegal unconstitutional laws¬†that he¬†wants to shove down our throats.
But we know they want to pass some type of universal background checks since they mention, closing the gun show loophole.

Hopefully most states and local governments won’t comply and enforce those laws. Unfortunately my state, Virginia has an Obama’s/ Bloomberg’s boy as a governor Terry” McAuliffe¬†who is channeling the elite’s powers. The good news is most of Virginias and the legislative body are opposed of such acts. Thanks to the Virginia Citizens Defense League (which I’m also an active member) are creating awareness and fighting for our 2nd amendment rights in the state of VA and we are doing a great job.¬†http://vcdl.org
