My apologies for the political post, but this affects Virginia directly and immediately, where the N-SSA is based out of and where the home range is.

If you are a resident of Virginia, you probably know that as a result of the recent election you now have an anti-gun legislature that come January is virtually guaranteed to pass draconian gun control laws as they have already stated they would.

There is a large rally forming to go to the capital and voice your concerns and represent your rights. This may be your last attempt to stave off disaster by showing your elected officials the size of the movement they are working against.

It is not enough to complain on the internet. Please show up if you can.
