1. ACTION ITEM: Proposed Isle of Wight gun range needs our help to get approved!
***********************************************************

American K9 Interdiction and Dominion Protection Group are trying to open a public shooting range in Isle of Wight County. One of the neighbors, who didn t like the idea, stirred up about 50 other neighbors and, a few weeks ago, they stood in opposition to the range at a Planning Commission meeting. Since VCDL was unaware of the situation back then, there were almost no supporters at that hearing. :-(

The opponents, as usual, painted all kinds of wild, ridiculous, and off-the-wall scenarios to show the range would be a bad thing to have in the area.

The local paper, the Smithfield Times, was also less than sympathetic to the range.

The Board of Supervisors will consider the range at their July 21st meeting, which is held at the Isle of Wight Courthouse.

*** The range urgently needs lots of citizens to attend that meeting to speak in favor of the range. ***

Here is television coverage of the current situation. The anti interviewed is the ringleader of the opposition:

ACTION ITEM

Let s send an email to the Board of Supervisors in support of the range. When the date gets closer, I will remind everyone so that we have a big turnout at the hearing.

Email addresses (just copy and paste the entire list into your email program):

Suggested subject: Please APPROVE the American K9 Interdiction s public shooting range!

Suggested message:

Dear Isle of Wight Board of Supervisors member,

In this age of urban sprawl, public shooting ranges provide a valuable service to gun owners by giving them a way to enjoy the shooting sports, while also supporting their Second Amendment rights. This shooting range will also bring more customers to Isle of Wight businesses.

I urge you to SUPPORT the proposed American K9 Interdiction's public shooting range at the Board of Supervisors hearing on July 21!

[YOUR NAME]

2. Charlottesville City Council members to push to ban guns on MONDAY?
***********************************************************

A couple of VCDL members reported to me that at a Charlottesville rally for the victims of the terror attack in Orlando, two City Council members said they were going to bring up some kind of gun ban during the City Council meeting on Monday, June 20.

Of course, thanks to VCDL s efforts back in 2004, localities can do no such thing!

Needless to say, it still wouldn t be a bad idea for some members in Charlottesville to sit in on the meeting to see if the issue comes up (it s not on the agenda) and what is said. If they are considering any such gun ban, we will move to stop the proposed ban quickly.

Thanks to members Chris McLean and Jim Wilmoth for reporting the situation to me. (Members like Chris and Jim are why darned little slips by VCDL when it comes to gun issues!)

3. Fairfax City defers hearing on zoning until July
***********************************************************

The Fairfax City Council decided to defer having a hearing on their modified zoning ordinance until their next meeting, on July 12. We will want a turnout at the public hearing to make sure that if City Council decides to put back in the prohibition on gunsmiths and FFLs having a home business, we will have people there to speak against any such restrictions.
