Re: Great job, everyone!

Pam and Russ. Terrific job. The momentum is building for a CoS. You could see and feel in those we met.

I'd like to throw in my congratulations for a job well done.  I am trying to find out if this # of petitions is a record for a two day event. That would be neat, but more importantly you all made some new acquaintances yesterday and today that may become part of our great team and possilby new friendships. You may have changed some minds and found some new supporters. Who knows, youu may have awakened a new citizen activist.  I've said this before, but I feel blessed to have such a hard woking team of patriots.  So many of our volunteers and supporters make a sacrifice to be a volunteer, drive many miles (sometimes 300) to help, give up some of their time and resources to be a part of a reawkening in this great county of ours. We are in a fight for our freedoms, our liberties, our Constitution and all the things that we expressed our thanks for this past Thursday.   Pat yourself on the back - you did a great and worth while job these past two days. 

And PS, I hope you are feeling better, Toni!

Thank you all!

We collected 181 paper petitions the first day, and another 160 today, for a two day total of 341!  We probably had a dozen or less that were entered straight into the computer, too.  The quality of the conversations are important, too, and I think those were very good, too.  We will never be able to recruit everyone we see, but you got a lot of people to think about it even if they didn't sign up.

  As always, let us know if you have suggestions for improving the gun show event.  I would say it was pretty darn efficient, but there is always a fresh idea somewhere that can improve things.  (Note to myself...bring even more handout cards!)  

Pam and I really appreciate you taking the time to help with the project, and hope to meet up with you again!  Keep watch for email announcements for future gun shows, breakfast meetings, and Lobby Day in Richmond.  We are collaborating with VCDL on MLK day and you can expect a lot of interesting activity throughout the general assembly.

Pam will need a hand from time to time for various things, so please let her know if you are able to help with future events.  Many hands make light work.

Thanks again,

Correct Email Address for Supervisor John Koontz


Dear MCRC Members and Friends of MCRC,

I gave incorrect email addresses for Supervisor John Koontz.  His correct email is: 
hartfieldbos@gmail.com

Also, for those wondering where the concerns are coming from in a more specific way, please see Prefiled SB-16 and HB 4021 from the 2019 General Assembly.  I'm attaching the language contained in SB-16.

Thank you for your prompt attention and responses!

PRIORITY - Second Amendment Sanctuary County Designation - Middlesex County Republican Committee

Dear MCRC Members and Friends of MCRC,
 
Attached is a draft Resolution to designate Middlesex County a 2A (Second Amendment) Sanctuary County. I will present this resolution in behalf of MCRC to the Middlesex County Board of Supervisors at their meeting, Tuesday, Dec. 3.
 
This action is in response to multiple proposals that are part of the Democrats' wish list of prefiled bills for the 2020 General Assembly.  Specifically, to the bills that, if signed into law, would make anyone housing a firearm a FELON.  I can go down a list of what would be required, but first and foremost would be surrender of firearms to the government.
 
As Republicans, we know such a measure to disarm U.S. citizens is in violation of the United States Constitution.  We also know this has been tested with the United States Supreme Court.  If the Democrats in Virginia successfully move this forward, it appears it may be court-tested again.  Recognizing the political climate, nothing is beyond potential.  Which is why you are receiving this CALL TO ACTION.
 
Time is of the essence--it is crucial.  You need to call or email your own district supervisor. Tell them you want Middlesex County designated a 2A Sanctuary County.  This is vitally important...they must hear from their own constituents ahead of the BOS meeting.  And, they need to hear in numbers! 
 
Please contact your local supervisor immediately and ask for their support to designate Middlesex County a Sanctuary County for the Second Amendment. 
 
Chip Holt = 804-704-0560 or pinetopbos@gmail.com
 
Wayne Jessie = 804-854-9340 or wjessie59@gmail.com 
 
Pete Mansfield =  804-758-5335 or pmansfield40@gmail.com 
 
Kathy Swinehart = 804-358-5656 or kathyswinehartbos@gmail.com
 
John Koontz = 804-564-8852 or john.koontz@exyte.net or John.Koontz@mwgroup.net
 
 
Our actions are vitally important to help ensure our Second Amendment Rights, to keep Middlesex County from enforcing laws that are unconstitutional and to help avoid costly and time-consuming court appearances. 
 
Many, many counties in Virginia are doing exactly as we are.  Some have already adopted the resolution and others have it on their December agendas.  Are you a hunter?  Do you enjoy shooting sports?  Are you concerned about personal defense?  All will be impacted if this Democrat tide is not turned back.
 
Please plan to attend the December 3 BOS meeting which begins at 3:00 p.m. I will present during Public Comment which will begin at approximately 3:10.  The matter will be discussed by the BOS later in the meeting (it is already on their agenda). 
 
Thank you--ahead of time--for responding to this CALL TO ACTION!!
 
GO REPUBLICANS!!!!

MCRC Chairman
