Collectively, AG Cuccinelli, E.W. Jackson, and Sen. Obenshain represent one of the strongest ever pro-second amendment tickets in recent Virginia history. From Sen. Cuccinelli’s and Sen. Obenshain’s carrying and patroning pro-second amendment bills, plus their numerous pro-second amendment votes while serving in the Virginia Senate, to E.W. Jackson’s unabashed vocal stance for your individual rights, Virginia gun owners are in excellent shape. That is, if we can win and get them into office.
The good news is, we still have some great friends in these three candidates. The bad news is, I haven’t seen a slate of Democrats more hostile to law-abiding gun owners since I left the People’s Republic of New Jersey in 1986. With a McAuliffe administration supported financially by gun grabber Michael Bloomberg, “give me your bullets” Eric Holder, and turncoat Republicans calling for “common sense gun control”, Virginia gun owners could be facing not just a frustrating holding period for four years, but an outright disaster in the fight to preserve our gun rights.
A Lt. Governor Jackson provides Virginia gun owners with the tie breaking pro-gun vote in a toss up Senate. A Governor Cuccinelli provides a pro-second amendment signature to gun legislation and is not afraid to have gun bills come across his desk. Cuccinelli is a fighter for individual rights and will not stand for back room games like those that have killed so many pro-second amendment bills over the years. An Attorney General Obenshain who, like Cuccinelli, is not afraid to carry a pro-second amendment bill, represents precisely the kind of leadership gun owners can trust in the Attorney General’s office.
I have it on good authority that forces within the Virginia Republican Party are trying to drive Virginia Republicans “to the center.” Make no mistake, this means throwing gun owners under the bus.
Being attacked by liberal Democrats is nothing new. Weak Republican Party leadership diluting party principles, combined with a Lt. Governor Northam breaking tie votes in favor of gun control would be disastrous. There is only one way to prevent it. We need decisive victories this November. Not just one, or a few, but a series of them, to show Virginia Republicans “Hey, principles matter, and I’m standing firm!” VCDL-PAC is non-partisan, but there is a decided attempt to shift, or more accurately, abandon stated Republican Party principles in favor of “pragmatism” and “common sense” gun control. THIS MUST BE STOPPED.
