In the latest mailing to Virginia gun owners, NRA-ILA calls out Mark Warner for his vote in April of 2014 that would have criminalized gun sales between lifelong friends and family members:
As the above graphic shows, NRA-ILA also reminds gun owners that Mark Warner has voted for every anti-gun U.S. Supreme Court nominee.
In their last mailing, NRA-ILA simply noted that GOP nominee Ed Gillespie would stop the Obama/Bloomberg gun ban agenda without any mention of Mark Warner. In this mailing, they have stepped up their support for Gillespie by calling out Warner for his voting record.
This race is still considered a safe Democrat seat. However, Warner has made the unusual move to agree to six joint appearances with Gillespie between now and the end of the campaign. Incumbents who are in races that polls show a double digit lead usually ignor their opponents. Be that as it may, Warner has agreed to meet Gillespie in two televised debates: on Oct. 7 in Fairfax County and on Oct. 13 in Richmond. They will also have four joint appearances: two in Northern Virginia in September (one of which was held yesterday), one in Danville in October and another TBA. It should be noted that in the four “joint appearances” the two candidates are unlikely to interact as they would in a debate.
In a Q&A that the Richmond Times Dispatch published this past Sunday, Warner told the paper that while he was a supporter of Second Amendment rights, he believes that “reasonable rules” should be passed to strengthen background checks.
Gun owners should do all they can to help Gillespie defeat Mark Warner. You find the closest Gillespie office to you by clicking here.
