    Open carry in a vehicle

    A question for South Carolinians. I live in Virginia and travel to South Carolina at least once a year. Is it legal for me to openly carry my sidearm on my belt while in my vehicle or must I cover it with a shirt?

    Raising killers

    I sent this out to select people on my email contacts list a few days ago and thought it would be appropriate here, given all that has been happening in the world and even here in our own nation. It is graphic and for the mods, if not appropriate please feel free to remove it. I will not at all...

    Question about auto crime in Virginia Beach/Lynhaven area

    I am going to be heading down to a B-day party in Virginia Beach this weekend and will be staying at a motel close to Norfolk International Airport for one night only. Is this an automobile crime problem area? I am very anal about my car and am concerned about attempted breakin's, someone keying...

    RVA Dialogue on Gun Control

    Just watched the hour long debate, parts 1 and 2, on "gun control" with Philip Van Cleave and Jim Reynolds representing our side of the debate. They handled and conducted themselves most effectively and in my opinion, made us proud. I took one of Jim's courses, what could be best described as an...

    Saw this graphic on another website. Thought it was interesting and worth posting here. http://monderno.com/criminal-states-america/

    What Fairfax is getting for LEO's is disturbing

    Was listening to a talk radio show early this morning. Cuccinelli was one of the subjects. He spoke about how some of Virginia's gun laws turn law-abiding citizens into criminals and used the example of our member in Henrico County who moved a gun from his glove box and was seen by a school bus...

    The cowardice of policing

    This lady always has worthwhile videos to watch. This one is no exception and bears scrutiny in today's climate of overzealous and militarized police departments. "Message to police" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg "When resistance becomes duty"...

    Never know what you're going to encounter at the range

    So I decided to hit the range this morning; the NRA Headquarters range. When I arrived, there was no one waiting for a lane and very few on any lanes so in I went, to lane four. Before long some more people showed up. The man on lane three was shooting a long slide Glock 34, something I don’t...

    When God Created Virginia

    I know, it isn't about firearms but it is about Virginia. Sent to me from a fellow Virginian who hails from the Tidewater. Enjoy. When God Created Virginia (even non-Virginians should love this one.) God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the...

    Immediate vs imminent

    First off, the reason this thread was started in the Virginia forum is because it is a Virginia issue... not any other state. With that said, here goes. There has been some discussion of recent times regarding the use of the words "immediate" and "imminent" as they relate to the use of deadly...

    Independence Day

    Independence Day They were a small band of men, largely untrained and in the beginning, without real leadership. Yet they chose to face the most powerful military force on earth. They overcame all odds. They triumphed against unbelievable hardship. They sacrificed all. And they won. How could...

    What did Einstein say about insanity?

    Yep, let's do the same thing that the Clinton administration did, on top of what the Carter administration started. Maybe this time there won't be a housing bust like before. And then we can wait another 10 years and try it again...

    You just can't fix dumb (is that worse than stupid?)

    This woman is so ignorant about firearms and their components that I'm almost embarrassed for her, even if she is a democrat. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/04/03/co_democrat_doesnt_understand_high-capacity_magazines_can_be_reloaded.html And then there's Barbara "I've never seen...

    Trapped with nowhere to go

    Not sure if this qualifies for the Social Lounge, but there's just no other place for it on this site. It is not firearms related. I just thought that this is a very interesting short video, not for the gore but rather from that angle of how one might react when trapped in a really bad...

    Truth be heard

    Every word of what this man says is true. The sad thing is that most of our elected officials not only do not believe this, but actively go about their time in office to remove our most fundamental and precious rights as Americans. To bad we can't vote for this guy...

    By all means, leave

    I have been writing and talking and crying about this for years. People who move into an area and then expect the indigenous folks to bend to their wishes and ideas which they neglected to leave behind them. We see that here in Virginia (just look at Northern Virginia) and a host of other...
