Gun owners show dignity despite Council Disrespect
It might be news to some.
Richmond Virginia- Last night, Gunowners and The Virginia Citizens Defense League, addressed the Richmond City Council. They were concerned about the City’ membership in a blatantly anti gun organization. The City has demonstrated numerous times, their disdain for Citizens protecting themselves and Virginia laws that uphold that right.
I’ve always thought that attitude odd, since the city is an unbelievably dangerous place.
I was also embarrassed for Virginians at the way some council members behaved, not only toward VCDL, but every person that addressed them last night. The President, Kathy.Graziano and the Vice President Ellen.Robertson, giggled and made jokes behind their hands when Citizens spoke. Ms. Graziano behaved especially badly and when speakers complained, she would speak to them as if they were misbehaving dogs.
In sharp contrast, VCDL members conducted themselves with dignity and respect for the system.
Philip Van Cleave, President of VCDL spoke after a long wait despite what appeared to be a convenient loss of his reserved time.
At the end of this article, is a copy of VCDL’s “Alert” to member. His account of the evening is quite accurate although much gentler than I put some things.
Orange “Guns Save Lives” stickers were everywhere in the Council Chambers.
