And you are amazed at the work of the Virginia Citizens’ Defense League and how they have managed to get the backing of so many people including Chief LEOs and the rank and file, I can tell you the “secret” of their success.

They never behaved like excluding dickheads. 

When VCDL went on to normalize Open Carry in Virginia, they sent letters to the local Law Enforcement agencies and media outlets inviting them to drop by to wherever locations  they would be holding their OC picnic. And it was a picnic for real: Full families, grilling, kids playing, etc.

Anybody approached them and they had pamphlets and people who would talk to anybody interested in what were they doing. “Wanna dog? Soda? Here you go.”  Just being neighborly and it paid off. Event though Gun Control tried to paint them as extremist, the only morons acting up in front of the cameras were the Anti Gun protesters. Eventually LEO agencies stopped sending cops over because it was more of a soft detail than actual prevention of any violence. I was told that at one event, the two cops “guarding” fessed up and said they were sent mostly to see if any Anti Gun nut was going to do something stupid and get free food.

VCDL used that neighbor-friendly and inclusive attitude with every gun issue and never went Chest Thumper™ and “Fuck Da Police”  even though they did have issues with some agencies at the beginning and with Norfolk  PD arresting twice VCDL members illegally IRRC. And the issues were resolved in court, not insulting and acting the fool. They always behaved like Ladies and Gentlemen because they knew that was the ticket to reach their goals.

And they kept that attitude till tody and it also has come to pay again handsomely with 2A Sanctuary counties and  the activism of people actually going to meeting and showing their resolve.  The voters may have faltered at the electoral boxes, but if the Democrats thought they were just gonna walk as easy as the Wehrmacht on Paris, they are awaken to a nasty reality.  There is a nasty resistance out there and  not the Liberal pussy hat wearing kind.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. It’s like the Thumpers have never ever read Sun Tzu or Machiavelli… or Dale Carnegie.

    But, it’s never been about actually winning, and more about the Virtue Signaling with them. Like the Leftist SJW’s.

  2. Its SO Gd hard to get this across to some people. You HAVE to hold yourself to a higher standard- be nice be polite be calm. I was involved in an outfit formed to help Veterans and most there did not want to do the work to prove we were going to help vets. The fucktards managed to drive off all the good people. Now they think they are a bunch of “outlaw bikers”and cant figure out why citizens wont support them. We have idiots up here posting on fb about time to “take back the country” meaning go to guns… THAT is not how its done. I do notice when I get below the mason dixon line its a whole different world, much more American. Never quit the fight, never never never.. be nice, until its time to not be nice. We had a whole raft of bloomberg financed gun control bills here in Maine and we got all of them squashed…
