Sample Letter to VA Legislators

Everyone -- please take action by corresponding with your local Virginia Commonwealth legislators or we will lose this battle. I have already sent something similar to my legislators, and have been seeking outside guidance.



If you need contact info, you can look them up here:


Google: <your county> Board of Supervisors


Keep your message short, simple, and polite. 




Subject: Upcoming legislation regarding firearms


Senator/Delegate/Honorable NAME,

Thank you for your service, and I urge you to support firearms laws that are already on the books and do not support further gun restrictions. Please do not support SB-16.

Heller stated that firearms in common use for lawful purposes are protected under the 2nd Amendment. Many if not most of the firearms affected by SB-16 are in common use for lawful purposes.  So, properly read, Heller says that a constructive ban would be unconstitutional.

SB-16 will have a profound negative effect if passed - it is seizure of power from the citizenry, seizure of personal property, unconstitutional for both the U.S. and Virginia constitution, will ban firearms many own and use for hunting, recreational and competitive shooting sports, as well as educational programs, and make thousands of law-abiding Virginia citizens felons overnight. 

Thank you again for your time and consideration with this, and I look forward to your reply.

Virginia Democrats Draft Gun Confiscation Law for January

Virginia Democrats Draft Gun Confiscation Law for January
The draft Senate Bill 16 for Virginia for the January term is posted, and is the gun ban:

 -  All semi-automatic rifles that "have the ability" to hold more than 10 rounds (or have "military features" like a folding stock, pistol grip, etc...)
 - Any semi-automatic pistol that "has the ability" to holding more than 10 rounds
 - Any shotgun, shotgun tube or magazine capable of holding more than 7 rounds
 - All magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds
 - Bans suppressors, threaded barrels, and other items
 - Specially see line 204, "In addition, no dealer shall sell, rent, trade, or transfer from his inventory any assault firearm to any person"
 - See the end of the document, line 395 § 18.2-308.8. "Importation, sale, possession, etc., of assault firearms prohibited; penalty" for their definition of anassault firearm

This basically is a ban on just about every semi-automatic rifle, pistol, magazine and many shotguns, and would
make felons of anyone who owns a standard semi-automatic rifle, pistol or standard capacity magazine in the state.

Text of actual bill: 

*** Protect your rights, and please contact your local representatives opposing this law ***
