The Unified Voice of Hunters and Gun Owners in Virginia
Congratulations everyone! WE DID IT!! The hunters in Virginia were not fooled by empty promises coming from the politicians in our recent statewide elections. We voted the right people into office who share our core values and will defend our traditions and values.
The Dems were shell shocked that we, hunters and 2nd amendment supporters, got out and voted for core values. These same Dems denounced our protests against astronomical government spending and increased government intrusion as "dangerous" and insulted us, calling us Bubbas, as if we were third class citizens. You all stood up and voted for your priorities and core values. Your gave the Dems an unforgettable lesson they shall not forget. Great job everyone. We have got to keep it up.
VAHUNTERS wishes to congratulate and extend our support to
Governor Bob McDonnell
Lt. Governor Bill Bolling
Attorney General Ken Cuchinelli
ANTI GUN LEGISLATION IS BURIED IN THE GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE!!: Our battle is not over it has just begun. We cannot rest for one minute or our hunting traditions and freedoms will be eroded and eventually lost if you do not stay vigilant and remain involved. The latest anti gun agenda born by the Democrats has been buried deep in a 2,000 page government run health care bill. It is not mere coincidence that the antigunners have not mounted their typical frontal assaults on our 2nd amendment rights for quite some time. They have been plotting and anxiously waiting until the time is right to launch there next gun rights grab battle plan. This battle plan resorts to trickery and deception because they haven't been able to remove our constitution....yet. That antigun battle plan is to use Health Care and its "Preventative Medicine" clause to cast your ownership and use of firearms " as unsafe, unhealthy" to yourself and others. It will be awful hard to get health care if you own firearms and cannot afford the astronomical premiums. Please do not take this lightly.
The looming issue with this government run health care bill is that the President gets to pick who will be on the umpteen health care boards. These boards will have sweeping powers to make rules and adjust the coverage in this bill. Once the antigunners, Acorn and
SEIU union cronies are appointed to these government run health care
boards they will go right for our 2nd amendment rights.The government run health care boards will have an unchecked power to do as they please and make changes as they wish to the policies and coverage. Don't be fooled. Stay involved and call your elected congressman and senators and tell them NO to government run health care and cap and tax.
Which brings me to my next issue... Recently there was a cloture vote in the senate to try to get the senate government run health care bill to be debated on the floor. Despite numerous phone calls and email messages from constituents and overwhelming evidence that this country cannot afford a halfcocked overhaul of our entire health care system,Senator Webb and Senator Warner both voted YES to government run health care. I heard directly from a Senator Warner staffer that Senator Warner wanted to discuss the bill on the floor as he did not like certain provisions. No info was provided on what provisions he liked or disliked. Senator Webb was a typical no show and his staffers offered no information at all. The point to all this information is REMEMBER HOW THEY VOTED ON THIS HEALTH CARE BILL WHEN THEY ARE UP FOR REELECTION. They both put their political party before their constituents and chose to put our country's economy in further jeopardy. Your vote still counts and you must make it count.
