Repost from Guns Magazine.
Six months ago, gun-owning voters in the Commonwealth of Virginia did what this column said they could do — and told them how — and they took their state back!
You will recall how this column said it would take hard work and required getting off the couch to vote. The far-left media pundits never saw this coming and they’re still trying to figure out what happened.
Sure, Terry McAuliffe figured he could still waltz into the governor’s office after infuriating parents over his remarks about how they shouldn’t be involved in what their children are being taught in school. Of course, he expected gun owners to be their frequently lethargic selves and skip voting.
Parents turned out by the tens of thousands but the election was swung by angry gun voters who wanted payback for what Democrats did in 2020 — after they took over the House of Delegates and pushed through gun control measures that led a majority of Virginia counties and many towns and cities to declare themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries.”
Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, put it bluntly: “Old Dominion gun owners were not about to allow anti-gun Democrats enjoy another two years of power after what happened in January 2020. They knew what Terry McAuliffe’s return to Richmond would mean for their Second Amendment rights. His party’s politics of attacking gun owners, and their outrageous record of eroding gun rights brought gun owners to the polls to say enough is enough.”
So, Republican Glenn Youngkin is now Virginia’s governor. Additionally, the Lieutenant Governor is Winsome Sears and the state Attorney General is Jason Miyares, another Republican. It was a clean sweep.
