Not cool at all...

VCDL's Gun Dealer Legal Defense Fund -- help fight Mayor Bloomberg's
scheme to cripple Virginia firearms dealers. See:
VCDL's meeting schedule: http://www.vcdl.org/meetings.html

On Monday, Executive member John Pierce was in an elevator in the
General Assembly building, participating in the VCDL Lobby Day. John
was in the back of the elevator and at some point Democratic Senator
Dick Saslaw of Fairfax County, who is the Senate Majority Leader,
entered the elevator with a companion.

The Senator, not realizing that John with his large "Guns Save Lives"
badge was in the back of the elevator, continued a loud conversation
he was having with his companion.

[COLOR="Blue"]In a clearly audible voice, Senator Saslaw said to his companion: "I
see we're debating a gun bill today. Half of the cast of Deliverance
is in town."

John was disgusted and so am I!!!

While the Senator might think he is unbiased towards others, based on
that comment he is in fact a bigot and an elitist.

His disdain was shown a short while later when he rudely and
intentionally made a comment meant to disrupt the statement I was
making before the Courts of Justice committee on Senator Marsh's gun
show bill.

We need to ask our Senators and Delegates to demand that Senator
Saslaw issue an apology to those gun owners who were attending the
General Assembly on Monday and to the citizens of Virginia for
betraying their trust.
