We have a serious problem at this weekend's Republican Convention in
Richmond dealing with the Lieutenant Governor's race.

Of the seven candidates, six answered the VCDL Candidate Survey very
pro-gun. However, one candidate didn't bother to answer the survey at
all. That is no surprise, considering Jeannemarie Davis's history on
gun rights.

Jeannemarie Davis -- for Lt Governor and urges gun owners to help us
defeat her.

Jeannemarie Davis did not just vote badly on guns, she was a gun-control
leader. In 2007 she carried and proudly promoted SB 827, a "gun-show
loophole" bill that would have hurt gun shows across Virginia and made
selling, renting, trading, or transferring a privately-owned gun without
going through a dealer a FELONY.

To add insult to injury, Jeannemarie Davis invited gun-hating New York
Mayor Michael Bloomberg to Virginia in 2007 to stand side-by-side with
her as she pushed her anti-gun agenda! Bloomberg also liked
Jeanniemarie so much, he endorsed her last run for Senate.

A sampling of some more of Jeannemarie's bad votes:

* In 2006 she voted against HB 1106, which would have allowed a person
to carry concealed anywhere on their private property or in their
private vehicle without a CHP

* In 2006 she voted against SB 58, which would have removed the option
for localities to fingerprint CHP applicants

* In 2005 she voted against HB 2535, which allows CHP holders to have a
loaded handgun concealed in their vehicle on school property if they
stay in the vehicle

* In 2005 she voted for SB 807, another "gun show loophole" bill

* In 2001 she voted for McEachin's Amendment to HB 1969 that would have
gutted preemption by allowing localities to enact gun control restrictions


Jeannemarie Davis cannot be allowed to win at this weekend's Republican
Convention, and we must act fast as we only have FIVE DAYS!

The VCDL-PAC intends to mount an intense ground game to beat Jeannemarie
Davis at the Virginia Republican Convention. Such actions are not only
labor intensive, they are also costly for getting signs, banners,
leaflets, etc.

Please note: only the VCDL-PAC can spend money on political donations
and partisan campaigning. VCDL's funds cannot be used for such things.
Even though the last state elections were successful for the VCDL-PAC,
the PAC's funds are at a critical low right now and we must begin to
replenish them immediately or simply run out of money at the wrong time.

Just imagine what havoc Jeannemarie could cause if she becomes
Lieutenant Governor! Imagine, even worse, that she gets more visibility
and runs for Governor! That would be four years of VCDL fighting her on
gun-control and good bills coming to a halt.


We don't need a Bloomberg wanna-be elected to ANY OFFICE, including dog
catcher, but much less Lt. Governor!

Help in the fight against those who disdain our right to self-defense.
Every dollar helps.

We are in a serious crush in both time and funds. Please help.

If you are going to the convention, either as a Delegate or just to
watch, both VCDL and the VCDL-PAC need help at the tables, handing out
"Guns Save Lives" stickers, and CARRYING SIGNS AROUND.

We really have some great signs being made right now.

Thanks for your help.

on, follow us on Twitter. We strongly believe we will be making a
further endorsement during the Convention. One of the few ways we can
do this during the Convention is via Twitter. We may be able to send
out a VA-ALERT but it will be difficult for most Delegates to read mail
