Virginia: First Weeks of January are Critical

Law-abiding gun owners throughout the Commonwealth must continue to join together to fight against gun bans, gun rationing, and confiscation this January in Richmond. Your NRA has events planned for the early, critical days of the 2020 legislative session.

The first hearing of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee is January 13th, where lawmakers could hear the first slate of bills to restrict our freedom into oblivion. It’s critical that law-abiding gun owners are heard on this day, because waiting even one week to make our voices heard, whether individually or at an organized event, will simply be too late. Anti-gun zealot Gov. Northam wants the entire package of gun control bills fast-tracked for passage in the first week of this brief session. We must defend freedom at the very first hearing on the 13th and show the new bought and paid for anti-gun majority that our rights are not for sale – to Bloomberg or anyone else. Join us!

January 13, 2020, starting 8:00AM
General Assembly Building
900 E Main St.
Richmond, VA 23219

NRA staff will be on site with giveaways, including an emergency airdrop from Magpul.

*****

While the current Senate Courts of Justice Committee membership is unknown, Senator John Edwards will be the new chairman and needs to hear from you urgently! Please contact Senator Edwards at 804-698-7521 and strongly urge him to OPPOSE ANY GUN BANS, GUN RATIONING, AND CONFISCATION!

The NRA is also hosting Town Halls in Roanoke, Lexington, and Belle Haven on January 3-4 before the session begins. Attendees will have a chance to speak with NRA reps to find out more about the fight in Richmond and meet others dedicated to freedom and our cause. Virginia State Senators from these areas have been invited in order to hear from their constituents on the anti-gun bills under consideration.

Your NRA has also messaged through billboards on I-64 and I-95 in the Richmond area to remind law-abiding gun owners and lawmakers what’s at stake in the coming session. 

We trust that when called upon, NRA Members will show Bloomberg and Northam why we are the most formidable political force in history. Stay Tuned – Get Active – Let’s Stand and Fight!
