The VCDL and others are asking that outsiders please not carry long guns of any kind. We agree with them, and our take on this is that leftist news crews will be taking video and hoping to capture the worst side of the patriot Second Amendment movement. Carrying a long gun will make you a target not only for them, but also for agitators showing up hoping to provoke you. Don't be the idiot that gets famous for the wrong reasons and makes us all look bad.

Think about what the purpose of Lobby Day is for; you're there to lobby. Dress nice and if you choose to carry concealed, please do so where you are allowed to conceal carry only. This is a political atmosphere, and they dress in business attire. No, you don't have to wear a suit, but look like you belong there. If you're wearing jump boots and fatigues, no legislator is going to be interested in talking to you or probably even want you in the building. Due to the massive exposure that this event is going to get, remember when you're there that you represent gun owners across the country and not just those in Virginia.
