1. Wrap up on Albemarle County’s local gun-control ordinance
Last week the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors passed local gun-control, ignoring the concerns of the gun owners they have now disarmed. The comments the Board received opposing gun control outstripped those supporting it.
The best the Board could do for gun owners was virtue signaling. Many on the Board acknowledged CHP holders should be exempted, but none of them raised a finger to do so and a few made excuses as to why CHP holders should not be exempted.
2. New VCDL membership benefit: deep Aflac discounts!

3. Biden Administration prepares ban on Russian ammunition
The Biden Administration is using the anniversary of the poisoning of a Russian politician as an excuse to ban Russian-made ammunition. Funny thing about the timing – just as prices were starting to come down and stabilize, suddenly a major source of ammunition is being cut off. What an amazing coincidence. <eye roll>
Contracts in place before this new policy takes affect early next month will be allowed to be filled, so this won’t start squeezing ammunition imports immediately. But after a year or two, no more ammo will be coming in from Russia. A new President can fix that. This is not a law, but another Executive Order.
Of course, a lawsuit might fix the issue, too.
4. Anti-gun Delegate Mike Mullin holding gun-control roundtable TONIGHT, 8/24
Delegate Mullin is having a virtual town hall on gun-control TONIGHT. Moms Demand Action is on the panel.
If you live in Mullin’s district, join the discussion. Ask him to explain why crime in Virginia has increased after Democrats passed all that gun control this year and last year.
Ask him how restricting the rights of good people will make bad people stop doing bad things.
