NRA-ILA Election Kickoff Meeting A Success

The Grassroots Division of NRA-ILA hosted a Virginia Election Kick-off Meeting last night at the Bass Pro Shops store in Hanover County, just north of Richmond. Approximately 100 gun owners and Second Amendment supporters packed the meeting room to over capacity and enjoyed pizza and soft drinks while listening to NRA-ILA Grassroots Coordinator Brent Gardiner talk about NRA's plan to turnout gun owners for this year's election. This followed the Virginia Beach meeting held on July 16th which was also a success.

It is good news to see so many gun owners energized to become active in the election process. The anti-rights crowd has turned their attention to enacting restrictions at the state level so it is very important that the next Governor be an individual who will respect all of our rights, and will not pick and choose when he is with us an when he is against us. Likewise for the Lt. Governor who breaks tie votes in the State Senate, and the Attorney General, who issues opinions on state laws when asked by state and local office holders as well as members of the House of Delegates who are also up for re-election.


There are two additional Election Kick-off meetings taking place in the coming week. First is the one this Saturday, August 1, in Fairfax. This event will be hosted by ILA Grassroots Staff and is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m., at NRA Headquarters in Fairfax (11250 Waples Mill Rd. Fairfax, VA 22030)!
