Why would Terry McAuliffe, a liberal Governor of a purple trending back to red state such as Virginia promote the failed gun control policies of years gone by ? Last Novembers elections provided abundant evidence that despite all his money and misinformation, the Nanny State Bloomberg message of more gun control, did not resonate with voters. The results are obvious. Citizens who enjoy freedom, liberty, and cherish the ability to defend themselves and their families, are not interested in Bloombergs Nanny State. We trust ourselves to select how many Glocks we want to own, the size of our sodas, and the amount of salt we choose to ingest. So,why then is Terry McAuliffe playing the role of politically tone deaf Governor ? Is it because he is a politically tone deaf Governor ? Yes he is, but is that is whats in play here ? Or is it the Bloomberg Cash?
When McAuliffe defeated Ken Cuccinelli for Governor, Nanny Bloomberg poured over a million dollars here
into McAuliffe’s campaign, Terry needs that cash to continue his political charade. Bloomberg’s generosity is now manifesting itself into policy positions despite the mountains of proof and historical data that these same policies have failed miserably right here in the Commonwealth. One would think that if proponents of gun control were going to take on the uphill fight for more gun regulations, that they would propose something other than previous failures.
The center piece of McAuliffe’s new campaign against guns in Virginia is the infamous One Gun a Month law.That’s right One Gun a Month ! The very law previously enacted that hung around for some twenty years before it was rejected in 2012! HERE
because of it’s ineffectiveness, is the new public safety agenda of the McAuliffe administration. This is the new gun control idea being pulled from the legislative dust bin and put back onto the table for us to debate, ridicule, and toss back onto the pile of stupid ideas. Is this McAuliffe’s political tone deafness, or his insatiable desire for additional cash to serve his political ends ?
What do you think ?
