VIRGINIA BEACH (July 20, 2009) - - The idiots at The Virginian-Pilot: They're trying to make a gun issue out of a racial, cultural issue by bemoaning the use of guns in black shootings and deaths. The gray matter-challenged Pile-It idiots can't remember the '60s and '70s when the straight edge razor and knife was the killing weapon of choice. Among blacks. Murders, stabbings and cuttings happened all the time and more frequently on weekends. In a logically flawed editorial Saturday entitled "'Hot Words,' Guns Cause too Many Deaths," instead of blaming the culture that makes violence a solution of choice in the 'black' incidents it cited, it blamed guns.

Guns Save Lives

RICHMOND (July 18, 2009) - - Guns do save lives. The case of a legally armed, open carrying gun owner who killed a would-be robber at a Richmond store recently is all the evidence one needs. Proof .45-caliber is quicker than 911: Cops didn't arrive until after robber had been fatally wounded. All those little anti-gun 'wussies,' should take note of this case. I had a friend once,who was such an anti-gun nut (and a Christian preacher here in Virginia Beach), whom I asked: "You mean to tell me that if your wife was being raped and you could get a gun to protect her, you wouldn't? You'd stand there and watch?" He replied, "I would never use a gun for any reason. In fact, I wouldn't use one if I could to protect my own life. If you want to kill me, go ahead." I concluded this guy was a (1). either a pervert; and (2). More of a nut case than any gun rights supporter. In my opinion, no one in America does as much 'grunt work' protecting gun rights and the public than Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL). About the would be robbery and shooting at Richmond's Golden Market, Van Cleave and another VCDL board member met with the guy who saved the lives of everyone else there. Here is the story the way Phil tells it in a 'mini-update' that he sends to members: Phil's story: Read the rest of this entry »

RICHMOND (March 10,2009) - - Hip! Hip! Hooray! And three cheers for Philip Van Cleave and the Virginia Citizens Defense league's pro gun rights track record during this just closed General Assembly. One major problem: Chesterfield Sen. Steve Martin's bill allowing 'retired' law enforcement officers to carry concealed in a restaurant or bar - also allows them to drink while packing. What's anti-gun Gov. Timmy! to do? A real victory for the rest of us, however is Albemarle Sen. Emmett Hanger's bill which allows a person with concealed carry permit to carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol. This currently prohibited: We have to expose our weapons to eat in an alcohol-serving restaurant. Not fair. Read the rest of this entry »
