There is absolutey no doubt about what the Founding Fathers intent was with the 2nd Amendment. it is evidenced over and over in their writings:

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence." --George Washington


"[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them."
--Zacharia Johnson, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788

"We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles. The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
--Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright, 1824

The Virginia Healthcarecare Freedom act has made it thru the Senate by way of approval of 3 separate bills. It's significance is that it represents a 10th amendment/sovereignty challenge also. The next sovereignty battle up in the GA is HB69 Virginia Firearms Freedom Act, if we can get it through the House it moves on to the Senate. Please call and email your Delegates.

Delegate Carrico's HB69, the Virginia Firearms Freedom Act, now has the bi-partisan support of 21 co-patrons in the House and 4 in the Senate. This bill has been assigned to the Militia, Police & Public Safety Subcommittee #1 and will likely be voted on Thursday, February 4 in the Fifth Flor House Conference Room at 5PM. Please contact members of that subcommittee and urge them to support HB69. You can find the members of that subcommittee here.

The Virginia Firearms Freedom Act is about much more than firearms. This bill will redefine the proper constitutional use of the commerce clause by the federal government.

Commerce clause power was not much used by Congress until the New Deal and the
administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR). During that administration, Roosevelt attempted to assert a lot of federal power that had not been previously asserted by the federal government. However, a number of such laws pressed through Congress were found by the U.S. Supreme Court to lack constitutional authority. For many of these pet endeavors, FDR claimed commerce clause authority and threatened to expand the number of justices on the Court in the case of Wickard v. Filburn in order to be able to pack the Court with sympathizers and thereby gain court approval of his threatened New Deal programs. Thus, the Supreme Court caved and upheld the government’s arguments against Wickard, thereby dramatically expanding
the power of Congress to “regulate commerce … among the states.”

Just because the Supreme Court wrongly interpreted the constitution, doesn’t make the U.S. Constitution any less the supreme law of the land. Now it is up to the states to fix it. The framers did not intend to give the federal government the power to control “intrastate commerce”.

Hi, yes, My husband and I are attending the event in Roanoke, and are looking forward to it too. I saw an interesting e-mail today with an inteview of rocker, Ted Nugent, speaking about 2nd Amendment rights. This aired on a television in Austin, TX.
I am hoping that the Volunteer kick off gets lots of attendees. I have to remember to wear my hat. LOL! Have fun!

I signed up for the below notice:
-----------------------------------------------
Attend FREE Virginia Volunteer Kick-Off
Meeting in Manassas on August 17th!

Dear Member:

This November, Virginia's elections will be ground zero for the enemies of freedom to try and turn the tide against our gun rights in the Commonwealth, serving as a launching pad for their national gun ban crusade. Our opponents will be pulling out all the stops as a run-up to the 2010 elections. All eyes will be on us!

To ensure we are prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities we will face this election season, NRA-ILA is hosting a free volunteer kick-off meeting on Monday, August 17th at 7:00p.m. at the Four Points by Sheraton Manassas in Manassas, VA.

At this meeting, we will lay out the plans for our grassroots election strategies in your area and show you how you can help. You will also get to meet and begin working with your NRA-ILA Campaign Field Representative-an NRA-ILA staff person who will be living in your area, coordinating our volunteer activities right through Election Day, Nov. 3!

This meeting is absolutely free and beverages and light snacks will be provided. It will run only about 60-90 minutes. Please make plans to attend and encourage yellow NRA members and Second Amendment supporters to attend as well.

Here are the details:

Monday, August 17th, 7:00 p.m.
Four Points by Sheraton Manassas
10800 Vandor Lane
Manassas, VA 20109
703-335-0000 http://www.starwoodhotels.com/fourpoints/property/area/map.html?propertyID=1730

To register for this free event, please click here, or call the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683).

Thank you Mrs. Northern. I served 23 years in the Navy and am a Viet Vet serving in the Riverine force. Two of my nephews are or have served several tours in the current conflict and I worry about them everyday. They are both Sailors. I appreciate your husband service and your son's as well...I thank them both for their service to our Country. I am a hard core Republican and don't really have time to listen to the junk that the Dems are saying.

You have a wonderful day and thank you for your beliefs in this Country and in our cause,
Comment by Kathleen Reynolds Northern on August 11, 2009 at 10:27pm
Hi there. Thank you for being active, especially in the VFW. My husband is a Gulf War veteran and as his spouse, I appreciate both your service and his.

No, I do not understand not standing up for your Party, and I also believe in taking our country back, and away from the brink of Socialism. But, all of us can write and even if it's one sentence, make our voices heard.

Thank you again for being so active with VFW. I pass by one every day on my way to work and I pray for all of our veterans, and soon, that will include my son, who is in the Navy and has been deployed in the "War on Terror" twice in 4 years. Your service, sir, is indeed especially needed now. God bless you!
Comment by B J Richardson on August 11, 2009 at 10:15pm
I donot understand anyone sitting out elections either. Look at what we have in the WH and on the hill. I am a member of the NRA and I attend functions when I can. I am very active in the VFW and hold an office with the district so my time is limited. We need to take our country back and vote out the idiots there now!!!
Comment by Kathleen Reynolds Northern on August 11, 2009 at 9:45pm
I have no patience for anyone who "sits out on an election"; but, now is definitely not the time to sit on the sidelines about anything either. Is everyone here a VCDL member? If not, join. How about an NRA member? We have some functions to attend, and I am sure that those of us who believe in Republican values will be strident watchkeepers and very vocal about what it is we're seeing.
But, why is this group so quiet?
