Shooting Ranges, Gun Shops, Clubs Sponsoring Buses to Richmond January 20th

Some shooting range, gun shops, and clubs have set up buses to Richmond for the Annual Lobby Day on January 20th. While a number of gun bills may have already been heard by then, they would still have to be taken up in the other house of the legislature (i.e. Senate bills taken up in the House and vice versa) before they go to Governor Northam. If we don't stop them in one house we may stop them in the other. So, it is critical that a large number of gun owners show up in Richmond , talk with your legislators, and let their voice be heard on both January 13th, the day NRA has designated, and on January 20th. Below is a list of buses we are aware of that will travel to Richmond on January 20th if you want to avoid parking issues.  If you are driving, please be aware that entry into the Pocahantas building will be difficult with only one access point so please arrive early if you want to speak with your legislators.
