Just got back from Prince Michele Vineyard. Dan Gade has my full support and judging by the turnout, quite a few others. Great guy.

a number of places where this might get posted, but I am putting it here since our DEM tyrants want to disarm us in Virginia.

https://www.breitbart.com/poli...ttacks-corona-virus/

California gun sales are surging as Asian Americans arm up to defend themselves, should they be targeted by people angry over the existence of the Corona virus.

CBS LA reports that gun stores in San Gabriel Valley are seeing gun sales skyrocket. Stores such as Arcadia Firearm & Safety are seeing “10 times” as many customers as usual, and store owner David Liu says it is because of fears caused by the Corona virus.

He said, “Because of Corona virus, a lot of people start to worry.” But he added, “If you’re prepared, you’re not afraid.”

The area is home to a large population of Asian Americans, many of whom are now seeking a firearm in order to be able to defend themselves in the event of an attack.

Resident David Lim said he just bought a gun for his wife, and fears the virus will eventually lead to social unrest.

On March 6, 2020, Breitbart News reported that ammo sales around the country were surging as people tried to get prepared in case of a social collapse.

At that time, PR Newswire reported online ammunition retailer Ammo.com had seen a 410 percent in .40 caliber handgun ammo sales since February 23, 2020. They saw a 194 percent increase in .223 (AR-15 ammo) sales, 101 percent increase in 9mm ammo sales, and a 95 percent increase in the sale of 12 gauge shells.

He's one district over, but I got mail from a challenger to Jennifer Wexton's US House seat; Jeff Dove. I liked what I read. Waiting to get something from our challenger to Don Beyer though.

Thanks, sdy for that note on ammo as I'd planned a trip to pick up a few rounds Friday of 9mm. Maybe I'll make that stop tomorrow instead.

I'd like to interrupt this thread for just a moment to say thank you to stickman for initiating it, to sdy and so many others for contributing to it, and to all have participated in it to keep Virginians and SF members aware.

Thanks man. Hopefully we see the same level of energy in November. Dems overplayed their hand on guns. I cannot understand how they thought it was a good idea to immediately start infringing on liberty as soon as possible.

A democrat friend of mine in Virginia just shot me a text inquiring about which type of shotgun he should get while he still can. Roll Eyes shame the party can’t just abandon their infuriatingly moronic stance on the 2A.

Of course the Viriginia Democrats campaign against gun owners is our main focus here, but their introduction and passing of many other bills has inflamed many Virginia voters.

The Dems, not only pushed against Gun owners, they pushed against religious groups, History, tax payers, and anyone else they could find to piss off. I really hope the people remember this.

I hope so as well and it seems almost unavoidable as much of what they have passed will constantly suck. Many areas will see a steady increase in gas tax. This alone will keep a lot of folks pissed off. I will do my part in telling every single person I know who bitches about it to thank a democrat.

The most important thing we can all do - keep reminding your circle of friends & relatives of what the DEMs are doing in Virginia.

Staying just below the level of "pissing them off", keep reminding them to vote in Nov 2020. And keep confirming that people are registered to vote.

Maybe not something that all will adopt, but I am gradually heating up the dialog w people who are DEMs.

DEMs have become tyrants in the literal sense. I have less and less interest in compromise but by pointing out the obvious, you can make some DEM voters uncomfortable.

Winning the coming elections in Virginia will come from two thrusts:

- turn out REP/conservative voters
- discourage DEM voters by giving them a big dose of truth & reality

This gets repeated constantly by people who don't seem to understand the reality of how things are and it's overly simplistic in the extreme.

People in politics are CORRUPT. I'm speaking generally here but we're talking about the overwhelming majority. I don't care if they have a D or R after their name, they're CORRUPT. Laws don't apply to them, they enrich themselves and their first and last thought is how to move up the ladder and acquire more power. Fuck the people they pretend to serve.

If they're running for any type of office and have any meaningful support behind them in terms of money and influence, they're most likely corrupt. And if they're one of the few that are not corrupt, they're either forced to sell out or get crushed by the system that can't allow their type inside (hence the barrage of attacks against the President).

Many people out there are no longer fooled, like so many still seem to be, and they're discouraged. That's why they're not voting.

Aside from anomalies like Trump, your vote doesn't mean shit. How many times can you possibly be fooled by these roaches?

The truth is that we'll never vote ourselves back to how things should be. NEVER.

Once Trump is out of office, things will go right back to they way they've been.

"This gets repeated constantly by people who don't seem to understand the reality of how things are and it's overly simplistic in the extreme."

DEMs love that message. Give up REPs. There is no hope. Sorry, I'll pass.

"Many people out there are no longer fooled, like so many still seem to be, and they're discouraged. That's why they're not voting"

so you don't see any diff between DEMs running Virginia compared to REPs running Virginia?

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

So we want to change things in Virginia (at least some of us do)

Look back at 2017 election where Northam got elected

2017 NBC exit polls

Male voters 51%
Female Voters 49%

Male voters: 48% for Northam, 50% for Gillespie

Female voters: 61% for Northam, 39% for Gillespie

So one thing men (and women) can do is talk to the ladies you know about politics. Not in an argumentative way, but point out the bad effects of what DEMs are doing in the country and our state.

Don't make it an overwhelming all inclusive argument. Pick 2 or 3 important items and clearly explain why the DEM policies are so damaging to our individual liberties. Liberties of men and women.

Don't assume you will win the battle for everyone. Don' assume you will win the battle w just one exchange.

Try not to make it an argument. Make it a conversation.

Some thoughts for the day

It took me 25 years to get my wife to see the light. My suggestion is to find the hot buttons she has and find how the Dems are against it and the Republicans support it. It’s the only thing that worked for me. Once we got past that hurdle she figured out the rest on her own.

Just musing out loud; I wonder if anyone involved in the push to enact the statues Bloomberg paid for in Richmond are now worried about their security in the pandemic, and thinking to themselves "maybe I should get a Glock", drive over to Green Top or another dealer only to find them out of stock and no ammo?

I can dream, can't I?

Another note on Daniel Gade

He had just recently started a state wide tour for small local "meet & greet" sessions. Normally these were in restaurants.

He has suspended these sessions because of the coronavirus related guidance to avoid holding group meetings at least for the next few weeks.

But to fill that gap, Daniel Gade is doing 3x a week Facebook sessions. He talks in real time, you can send him questions, and he answers them on the fly.

They are held here:

https://www.facebook.com/GadeForVirginia/

older videos are on this Facebook page.

So if you want to learn about Gade, and hear his thoughts, visit the above page.

He plans on doing these Mon, Wed, Fri typically around 6pm.

One person asked him "What can we do to help you?" .

His answer was to send texts, emails, and phone calls to people you know. Let them know why you support him. The race is on to get him much more state wide recognition before the 9 June 2020 REP primary.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


edit:

There will be a session today (18 Mar 2020) 6pm to 630pm

Daniel Gade:

Please join me TODAY from 6:00pm to 6:30pm for a Facebook Town Hall to voice your concerns about our current lack of leadership in the US Senate! Please submit question at info@gadeforvirginia.com
