Our speaker will be Andrew Patrick of Virginians for Responsible Guns Laws (VRGL). He will talk about what VRGL is, how they were founded, and what they hope to accomplish, including Universal Background Checks on all gun sales and stronger laws that will prevent Domestic Abusers from easy access to firearms.
Andrew is a VRGL organizer in Northern, Central, and Southwest Virginia. He is a native of Asheville, NC and graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2006. He has been in the Washington, DC area since 2007 where he has worked on Capitol Hill and organized for various campaigns. Andrew has been with VRGL for one year and will continue to work on stronger gun laws in the Commonwealth. He lives with his wife of four years, his newborn son, and his beagle mix in NW Washington.
