Dick is who introduced SB16 (amongst many other gun control bills):
You can hear on hot mic (whoops) what Virginia dems think of ”gun nuts” during what he tweeted about (below) today. Have a watch and listen (between seconds :24 and :56):
Him) Are you sticking around for the 25 gun nuts? Her) These people are crazy Him) They are like little kids Her) Will they stay calm? Him) As long as we don't respond.
Gun control advocates: We just want to have A conversation.

Dick recently posted this regarding that meeting:
You get a notice if you expand that:
So he’s censoring what is easily viewable on his tweet. Click “Show more replies”:
Why is all of this important? Well.......
One of the core purposes of the First Amendment is to allow people, regardless of their views, to hold the government accountable through expression. So, if your elected representative has an official Facebook page where she invites comments, can she block you from commenting because you criticize her work?
According to a federal appeals court, the answer is a resounding no.
On Monday, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the interactive portion of a public official’s Facebook page is a “public forum,” so an official cannot block people from it because of the opinions they hold.
The case arose after the chair of a local board of supervisors in Virginia, Phyllis Randall, briefly blocked a critic from her official Facebook page and deleted a comment he made about her colleagues’ management of public funds.
You are being censored by him. Time to get organized and file a lawsuit perhaps?......
And wait just a sec......Chair Phyllis Randall of Loudoun County? THIS Phyllis Randall?
Jeeze. Virginia Democrats don’t seem to care about 1st or 2nd amendment rights, do they? They don’t in Illinois either. In fact, one senator there, who introduced an “assault weapons” registration bill, taunted a constituent who opposed the idea and said she’ll just confiscate them instead. She also likes to block critics on social media. She ALSO is with our favorite “moms”:
These politicians can care less about civil rights. It’s clear as day.
