In Episode 22 of District of Conservation, Gabriella discusses a lot of news—starting with how pro-gun interests in Virginia will benefit from the fallout of political chaos befalling Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) and Lt. Government Justin Fairfax. She also discusses appearing in both Field & Stream and Outdoor Life for the first time. She wrote about SHOT Show 2019 happenings there. 

Gabriella also discussed the selection of Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, previously Deputy Interior Secretary, to succeed former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who bowed out in December. She also discussed the news that a Lee County, VA school district is countersuing Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a huge anti-gunner, for preventing the school district from implementing this firearms policy.
