What is at Stake for Virginia Gun Owners

Last Wednesday, former Governor Terry McAuliffe made the Democrats' real agenda known. At a fundraiser for Democrat Senate Candidate Joe Morrissey, McAuliffe was quoted saying:
“We’re going to win this, and guess what. We're going to get gun restrictions overnight, we are going to make Virginia a new state.”
We've been saying this for the last two years!  Now, Terry McAuliffe, in Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke style, made it known exactly what is in store for Virginia gun owners if we lose the pro-rights majority in both houses of the Virginia General Assembly.  McAuliffe's words should be a rallying cry for  Virginia gun owners to use the next month to do all we can to support the legislators that support our rights.

Here are several House Districts that need your help.

House District 30 - Delegate Nick Freitas - To vote for Delegate Freitas, you will need to ask for a write-in ballot.  Through some snafu, his name was not included on the ballot and we need him in the House of Delegates.

House District 66 - Delegate Kirk Cox - House Speaker Kirk Cox's district was redrawn by the federal court and the U.S. Supreme Court found that the House of Delegates did not have standing to challenge a lower court's ruling that several districts had been racially gerrymandered.  As you will see in the link, the redrawn district leans Democratic.  The gun ban lobby has targeted Delegate Cox, comparing him to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for blocking their gun control agenda.  Delegate Cox needs your help.

House District 40 - Delegate Tim Hugo - Delegate Hugo is likely the most endangered member of the House of Delegates.  He is the only Republican member in the General Assembly from Northern Virginia (Fairfax).  Delegate Hugo has been a strong supporter of our right to keep and bear arms.  He needs gun owners to turn out strong in his district.

In addition to the three above, below are additional members that need your help to win on election day and protect our rights:

Del. Chris Jones, HD 76 (This is another district that was redrawn by the courts to favor Democrats)
Sen. Amanda Chase, SD 11
Sen. Siobhan Dunnavant, SD 12
Del. Glenn Davis, HD 84
Del. Chris Stolle, HD 83
Sen. Bill DeSteph, SD 8
Sen. Bryce Reeves, SD 17 (Senator Reeves is a VSSA Member)
Del. Roxann Robinson, HD 27
Del. Rob Bloxom, HD 100
Del. Barry Knight, HD 81
Del. David Yancey, HD 94
Sen. Glen Sturtevant, SD 10
Jen Kiggans, SD 7 (This is an open seat vacated when Senator Frank Wagner took a job in the Northam Administration
