    User; "You want to implement seriously repressive gun control, you need a good crisis to overcome the Constition by popular demand. It won't get done unless the people generally demand it, and that won't happen if they're not terrified into submission. So our government is cynically, knowingly...

    Now travelers can't take firearms into VA roadside rest area restrooms...

    There's a good way to handle this. Just do your bodily business on the side of the building. Oh wait... that might not be legal. Or just ignore the sign and use the facility as you normally would. Again wait... that also seems to be deemed illegal. Wow, can't pee in a pee room because you might...

    Kamala Does Not Qualify to be Vice President

    Outstanding. I have long argued that just because someone is born in the United States does not mean they are automatically citizens. The phrase, " and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" is the reason for this. At the time that the 14th Amendment was being considered there was much discussion...

    Open carry in a vehicle

    Thanks. I had seen that before but was curious if (A), it was still state law and (B) if there just might be some provision which allows the vehicle to be considered and extension of one's domicile, which imply that openly carried sidearms in a vehicle would be legal. I guess that is still not...

    Open carry in a vehicle

    A question for South Carolinians. I live in Virginia and travel to South Carolina at least once a year. Is it legal for me to openly carry my sidearm on my belt while in my vehicle or must I cover it with a shirt?

    Raising killers

    I sent this out to select people on my email contacts list a few days ago and thought it would be appropriate here, given all that has been happening in the world and even here in our own nation. It is graphic and for the mods, if not appropriate please feel free to remove it. I will not at all...

    Question about auto crime in Virginia Beach/Lynhaven area

    I am going to be heading down to a B-day party in Virginia Beach this weekend and will be staying at a motel close to Norfolk International Airport for one night only. Is this an automobile crime problem area? I am very anal about my car and am concerned about attempted breakin's, someone keying...

    RVA Dialogue on Gun Control

    Just watched the hour long debate, parts 1 and 2, on "gun control" with Philip Van Cleave and Jim Reynolds representing our side of the debate. They handled and conducted themselves most effectively and in my opinion, made us proud. I took one of Jim's courses, what could be best described as an...

    What Fairfax is getting for LEO's is disturbing

    Was listening to a talk radio show early this morning. Cuccinelli was one of the subjects. He spoke about how some of Virginia's gun laws turn law-abiding citizens into criminals and used the example of our member in Henrico County who moved a gun from his glove box and was seen by a school bus...

    Never know what you're going to encounter at the range

    So I decided to hit the range this morning; the NRA Headquarters range. When I arrived, there was no one waiting for a lane and very few on any lanes so in I went, to lane four. Before long some more people showed up. The man on lane three was shooting a long slide Glock 34, something I don’t...

    When God Created Virginia

    I know, it isn't about firearms but it is about Virginia. Sent to me from a fellow Virginian who hails from the Tidewater. Enjoy. When God Created Virginia (even non-Virginians should love this one.) God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the...

    Immediate vs imminent

    First off, the reason this thread was started in the Virginia forum is because it is a Virginia issue... not any other state. With that said, here goes. There has been some discussion of recent times regarding the use of the words "immediate" and "imminent" as they relate to the use of deadly...

    Independence Day
