Leadership Action Needed
HB2760 continues to languish in Senate committee. Senator Herb Snyder (D-Jefferson) has spoken with WVCDL Vice President Art Thomm, and there is some hope that this bill will see the agenda in his committee. However, as of today, Senator Palumbo (D-Kanawha) has not changed his course in media.
WVCDL, do not let Senator Snyder’s potentially libelous commentary in the media deter you from your course. We must continue to light up the phones of the leadership, and we must continue to plan for action in their home districts.
As such, I’m asking that members and supporters from the 2nd Senatorial District contact me directly at 304-421-3404, by email, or via Facebook. This district includes: Calhoun, Western Gilmer, Ritchie, Doddridge, Tyler, Wetzel, Western Monongalia, and Western Marhsall counties.
Further, a WVCDL supporter is reporting that Senator Snyder’s office claims to be receiving an equal number of calls for and against preemption / HB2760. This is unacceptable. If there’s an equal number of calls, this means one thing. We. Are. Losing.
Equality means status quo. This bill will not move. We have to keep the calls pouring in. It’s not enough that we call. We must convince our friends, relatives, associates, and others to do their part to secure their liberty. Apathy is death in this state.
Herb Snyder: (304) 357-7957
Corey Palumbo: (304) 357-7880
Jeff Kessler: (304) 357-7801
Urge them to pass HB2760 without amendment!
If you can come out to support our freedom, please reply to this message or RSVP via either Facebook.
Charleston Facebook Event
This event will be held March 23rd at 12 noon at the corner of Greenbrier street and Kanawha Boulevard. We have some of the best legislation this state (preemption) has seen in 20 years, and Senator Corey Palumbo (D-Kanawha) has stated to the media “I don’t like it.” He doesn’t like your will. He doesn’t like your wishes. He doesn’t want to listen to the will of the people he represents.
Bring signs talking about Corey Palumbo wanting us disarmed.
Bring signs talking about Corey Palumbo being Danny Jones’ crony.
Bring signs aligning Corey Palumbo with Barack Obama and gun control.
The protest should last about an hour and a half. We need all hands on deck for this one, unless you’re ok with walking around in counties, cities, and towns having no idea if you’re breaking some petty law or not.
Share with everyone you can.
Administrative note, we request that folks do not open carry, as we do not know how CPD will react. Secondly, do not have a firearm on the Capitol complex. It is a legislated CPZ.
