VA-ALERT: VCDL GOING ON OFFENSIVE / VCDL MEETING IN NOVA ON THURSDAY
vcdl.org ^ | 12-19-12 | VCDL

Posted on 12/19/2012 11:37:10 AM PST by Cheeks

VCDL IS PREPARING FOR ALL OUT CAMPAIGN TO PROTECT OUR RIGHTS AND TO PROTECT SCHOOLS

VCDL's thoughts & prayers are with the families, friends, and all who were affected by the atrocity committed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School by a criminal monster on Friday. Words cannot adequately express our deepest sympathy to the victims and the revulsion we feel for the vile act of a lunatic.

Although some gun organizations have dropped off the radar screen, VCDL has been active and on the offensive - from newspapers to television, from local news to national shows. From the Washington Post to CNN. That said, when the massacre happened, VCDL saw no need to rush into the media with our thoughts on how to protect schools. We just wanted to let the families mourn their losses - there would be plenty of time later to talk about solutions. But no. The gun-grabbers had to start spewing their lies and distortions immediately. Under a barrage of gun-hatred and the associated media bombardment, our hope of a respectful silence dried up and blew away. We could not, and would not, just walk away leaving the vilification of innocent gun owners unanswered.

The frustration of VCDL leadership is palpable. While gun owners were both horrified and saddened by the massacre in Connecticut, the gun-hating media, the gun-hating organizations, and gun-hating politicians, have all been dancing in the blood of those tiny children.

**This may well be the biggest fight for gun rights in our lifetimes. **

THE GUN-CONTROL CROWD HAS HAD THEIR CHANCE WITH SCHOOLS AND GUN-FREE-ZONES, NOW WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING THAT WILL WORK

We need to get guns into the hands of adults at schools. No more "gun-free-school-zones!" Governor McDonnell has said he's interested in at least exploring such an option.

With all the media coverage of the massacre and the deep stab that it made in American hearts, have no doubt that other criminal monsters and even terrorists are taking notice. There will be more attacks on our youngest school children by psychopathic lunatics so they can become infamous in death. Terrorists will do so to put a knife in our hearts and then twist it.

VCDL NEEDS YOU, ALL OF YOU

Every one of you needs to participate. When we need phone calls or emails sent, we don't want merely 1 or 2 thousand - we want all 17,000 of you to do your part! NEVER ASSUME THAT WE DON'T NEED YOU TO DO YOUR PART. Carry your own weight when asked.

We are going to be doing protests and rallies. There may not be a whole lot of notice, perhaps just a few days. We'll try to give you as much notice as we can.

This will not be a campaign for the timid and VCDL is NOT going to back down. If they want a fight, then we'll give them a fight.

Watch for future alerts and be prepared for lots of those alerts. We are now in a war to save America and our rights. Time is of the essence and the battle begins in earnest RIGHT NOW.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have always been more motivated, more organized, more determined, more articulate, and have orders of magnitude more members than the gun-haters. All they have is emotion. Emotion is powerful, though, and we must not underestimate that power.

We are a force to be reckoned with and we are about to show that yet again!

We are working on our first major rally as I am writing this. The details will be coming out soon.

If you have been on VA-ALERT, but are not a member, NOW is the time to become a member! It is going to take money to do all the things we need to do - mailings, signs, literature, robocalls, etc. - and your dues help cover those costs. If you want to make an extra contribution, we will happily and gratefully accept that, too.

We will also have a couple of candidates address the group.

The meeting is open to the public and you are encouraged to bring friends, family, and co-workers.

Fellowship starts at 7:30 PM, with the meeting called to order PROMPTLY at 8 PM. It will run until 9:30 and we will then adjourn and we will go to a local restaurant for continued fellowship.

VCDL is the most effective grassroots gun rights organization in the country, and I’m a proud member. Philip is right when he calls for an “All-hands” effort. This fight results from an ambush by the lefties and, while we didn’t want it, we sure as He!! will prevail!

VCDL has done excellent work. All of the state organizations need to mobilize and follow their example.

***sniff......sniff**** I sure do miss my VA!! I still have my VA flag,clean and neatly folded,in storage. I was forced to move to TPROM (The People’s Republic of Maryland) in 2011 when our lives went into a tailspin and we lost our home there. Looking for the next good opportunity to get out of here. If we see an opening,we’re gone.

Being forced to Maryland. Hmmm. Isn’t that prohibited by the Geneva Conventions?

Anyway, hope you get back to the Commonwealth ASAP. We need your help. The destruction of gun control is a beautiful thing.

No problem. The group is about effecting change in the State laws. We are a group that acts within the law. Our job is to keep line of communication open.

VA-ALERT is a project of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. (VCDL).

Somewhere IN or NEAR the headline would have been a good explanation of the question "who the hell is "VCDL", and do I care?

Long "alerts" from unknowns don't "alert" so much as just annoy me, particularly when they don't introduce themselves in the first five seconds.

Kids are obviously neither baffled nor alarmed. They know why the heat is getting toted.

How about calling it Victorious Citizens Defense League and making it a nationwide concern.
