Report from VCDL member Zeke Y.

I was at the Board of Supervisors meeting in Fairfax tonight handing out stickers.

The scheduled start time for the public comments session was 16:30. Instead, we started two and a half hours late at 19:00. Turnout was great. According to the fire code sign, the room’s max capacity was 440 people and the guards told me we met that fairly early on, I’d guess around 17:15. We had people standing in the lobby to watch on a TV until the auditorium emptied out a little (due to running extremely late and the session before us finally ending)

I talked with two different people about the crowd size. One has worked security in the building since July, and the other has been in the building working at these meetings for 15 years. Both told me this was the biggest turnout to a BoS meeting they’d ever seen.

After the session before us finished, I’d guess there were maybe 380-410 people in the audience, and at least 3/4 of them were pro-gun, judging by the GSL stickers in the room. I estimate I went through 500 or so stickers, and I saw several other people handing out stickers as well.

The board itself was unresponsive and declined to introduce a 2A Sanctuary resolution. The crowd was told to be quieter in our applause for pro-gun speakers several times.

Several of the speeches were good, but I was most impressed with the two pro-gun ladies who spoke. One works in healthcare and got a CHP after a police detective advised her to because they didn’t have resources to deal with a mentally ill patient threatening her. The other is a four-time Virginia state champion in a shooting sport, is in JROTC, and a sophomore in high school.

Virginia Beach – City Council will now consider introducing a sanctuary bill in the near future. A massive turnout, estimated at between 1,000 and 1,500 individuals. Filled up the meeting room, down the hall, out the doors and flooded the area at the front of the building. After I addressed City Council, EM Brendan Moonie, Board member Gary Moeller, and I addressed the crowd outside.

York County – Board of Supervisors will vote on a resolution at their next meeting. Big turnout needed for that vote.
