My family moved West from the Shenandoah Valley long ago. I have never been to Virginia. But I can see how it is over run with North Eastern Liberals. So sad. Confused

City of Staunton gun owners, if you are displeased about how our City Council killed a 2A sanctuary resolution, your chance to fix the problem is coming up real soon. On May 5, four of the seven Staunton City Council seats are up for election, to serve four-year terms starting on July 1. With the right votes, we can flip the City Council our way.

Vote for Andrea Oakes, Steve Claffey, Mark Robertson, and Amy Darby. If they are elected, there is a good chance that the Council will pass a 2A sanctuary resolution. Even more important, it probably won’t pass any local restrictions on carrying a gun in our city, which it will have the power to do after July 1, thanks to SB35/HB421. We all know what the current lineup at City Hall will do, if they are still in office on July 1.

Four incumbents are up for re-election. Of the four, only Andrea Oakes spoke in favor of the City Council holding a special 2A hearing. Ophie Kier, Erik Curren and James Harrington voted to keep a 2A sanctuary resolution off the City Council agenda, despite requests from many Staunton residents in favor of a 2A sanctuary resolution.

Of the four non-incumbent candidates, three have conservative credentials, and two of them have indicated they are pro-gun. Mark Robertson had a meet-and-greet at Nuckols Gun Works. Stephen Claffey said on his candidate FB page that he is “pro Constitution and pro Right to Bear Arms. I think the City Council failed to hear all of their citizens by banning an open hearing.” Amy Darby was a former conservative member of the school board, and ran for City Council in 2018.

This election will have a light turnout, so every vote counts A LOT. Get all your friends and neighbors in the City to vote for the pro-gun candidates!

Please reply if you are a Staunton resident reading this page. Any insights you can provide will be helpful.

a matter related to the Virginia REP primary for the U.S. Senate seat:

Omari Faulkner is one of the people trying to get on the REP primary ballot for the 9 Jun 2020 election.

He is running for the senate seat and thus needs 10,000 signatures to get on the ballot. Or so we thought.

Faulkner only got 3,769 signatures. He only got 400 signatures in 2 of the 11 congressional districts.

But he filed a complaint to the court that he could have gotten the required number of signatures but when the virus pandemic hit a few weeks ago, he could not collect more signatures.

His complaint said if he wasn't on the primary ballot, his constitutional rights to free speech and free association would be violated.

Judge Reilly Marchant agreed with the complaint.

Marchant’s order lowers the ballot threshold from its usual 10,000 signatures down to 3,500, just below the number collected by Faulkner, according to his complaint filed Monday.

The order applies the new standard to all six candidates currently in the running for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat. The 3,500-signature threshold was requested by Faulkner and, according to the ruling, was not opposed by the Virginia Republican Party or the state’s Board of Elections, which were both defendants in the suit.
