Donate to the War Chest
Your Membership Dues Are Not Enough.
If you want to DEFEND your Right to own and carry a firearm...
If your FREEDOM to hunt and shoot is important to you...
Then you need to SUPPORT the VSSA War Chest.
During the 2024 legislative session, we are fighting gun bans and attempts to roll back Virginia's pro-rights reforms that took 20 years to accomplish. The Democrat majority is trying to further "Californacate" Virginia. They have introduce over 50 bills between the House and the Senate that will raise the age to purchase certain firearms to 21, remove the ability to carry concealed in restaurants like Applebee's and Olive Garden, re-institute a requirement to be fingerprinted to obtain or renew a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP), and institute a five day waiting period after the purchase of a firearm before you can take position of your property, just to name a few.
We can't just hope that the Governor will veto any bad bill that lands on his desk. All Virginia gun owners need to be active now and contact your legislator. VSSA's lobbyist will be at committee meetings and will be meeting with legislators. Working at the legislature does not come without cost. Please consider a donation the the VSSA War Chest.
While we work to activate gun owners to contact their Delegate and State Senator, we need to pay our lobbying bill for the 2024 Session of the Virginia General Assembly. Our lobbying team is at the Assembly every day of the session speaking to legislators.
Only with your help can we continue to push back on the gun ban lobby while working to overturn the damage they did in 2020 and 2021.
While we are working at the General Assembly, we are also supporting efforts in the courts to overturn gun bans. Besides the historic decision in the New York Rifle and Pistol Association vs Bruen case We also joined a brief before the 4th Circuit in a challenge to a key part of the Maryland "assault weapons" ban which the U.S Supreme Court remanded back to th 4th Circuit and instructed them to apply the standard set forth in Bruen. We are still awaiting a decision in that case from the 4th Circuit. We also joined an amicus brief in the Rahimi case. These efforts take financial resources and are only possible with support from our members and Virginia gun owners. In 2023, we joined a brief in Antonyuk v. Nigrelli, which seeks to overturn the law that the Governor of New York signed which undermines the victory in Bruen.
Please take a moment now and make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, $25, or even $10, to replenish our legislative fund and prepare for the 2023 General Assembly elections.
