Wednesday night the Arlington Zoning Board voted UNANIMOUSLY to keep NOVA Armory s Occupancy Permit in place!

We had a HUGE turnout - truly flooding the room to standing room only proportions earlier in the evening.

There was only ONE anti who spoke, almost the entire rest of the room was wearing VCDL stickers. She gave several lame excuses why NOVA Armory should have their permit revoked AND she didn t want NOVA Armory to be able to reapply EVER! (I love it when the antis overreach. Makes my job so much easier. They simply can t help themselves, bless their pointed little heads.)

That even shocked the Zoning Board.

The Board members asked some very key questions and that gave me my first hint that they viewed this as a frivolous case.

I was particularly pleased that we had so many women speakers! I love to see women at these things as it destroys the stereotype of gun owners being only men.

I am proud of our members and all of the great comments that were made. YOU GUYS AND GALS are what makes VCDL a force to be reckoned with! I thank you for showing up at these events, for representing gun owners so well, and for your sheer determination that gun rights WILL only be moving forward in the Commonwealth!

Here are a couple of photos of the hearing. The second photo shows gun owners raising their hands in support of NOVA Armory. Not all the room is shown in the photos by any means. ***Oh, and that photo was taken at 10:21 PM!*** - long after many people had left and gone home due to the late hour:

Oh, glad to hear this.

NOVA Armory needs to remain vigilant, though. I expect that the anti's in the area won't give up. That's one of the trademarks of the left; they are persistent little demons.

The one thing the Zoning Board knows that Anti-gunners don't.

They come up for APPOINTMENT/ELECTION, and if the SILENT majority makes them look stupid, they don't get RE-ELECTED!

I think it more likely that the city's attorney advised the board how much they would have to pay when they lost the lawsuit.
