Terry McAuliffe Pledges Colorado-Like Gun Control if Elected
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | September 23, 2013 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 09/24/2013 10:53:08 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe's (D) website was updated Monday to show his commitment to bring Colorado-like gun control to the commonwealth.

In the section titled "Investing in Virginia's Urban Centers," TerryMcAuliffe.com now contains the heading, "Support Common Sense Gun Control Measures."

Under that heading, it says McAuliffe "will support mainstream and majority supported gun control measures like universal background checks, limiting the size of magazines, and a return to the 1-gun-per-month rule."

The limitation on magazine capacity is a Colorado-like gun control measure that will put law-abiding Virginians at a disadvantage the moment it is enacted. This is because criminals will not obey it but will keep their "high-capacity" magazines so they can outgun their victims.

Universal background checks will mean an end to private gun sales in the state of Virginia, as they did in Colorado....

Well he just threw away the election...

The rural Virginia voters who weren't fired up about either candidate will not come out in record numbers to vote against him.

***Universal background checks will mean an end to private gun sales in the state of Virginia, as they did in Colorado***

Really? Do not these fools know their “law” will not stop people from selling their PRIVATE PROPERTY to others who may wish to buy?

Can you see a rancher on the high plains telling his neighbor “I can’t sell it to you till we go into town and get a background check on YOU to make sure YOU are not a criminal”.

Well...we'll find out how serious people are to have gun control..won't we?

...in a sane world, Terry McAluffe would be toast the second he came out with his promise.

...now, however, in this age of madness, who knows? I guess we will find out in NOV...

Or, it's just the shear, unmitigated arrogance of the left.

The donks seem to think they have VA in the bag. Otherwise there is no way this utterance would have occurred.

Sadly, they may be right.

It is worse than that. If a person could find an FFL to do the check, and the prospective buyer is declined, the seller would have to do a background check to get his property back. There is no legal way to sell a gun private party to private party in Colorado.

Black markets are the only free markets left.

Never underestimate the stupidity of the American electorate. The "moms" whose sole accomplishment is to have reproduced and who wet themselves at the thought of a gun will vote for him. The parasites who are too lazy to steal and count on the government to do their stealing for them will vote for him. Blacks will vote for him because they just know that Democrats will give them more of the loot than Republicans will vote for him. Government workers will vote for him because democrats expand government and there's nothing like being an employee in an expanding industry to get ahead.

"This shows the liberals either have the fraud sewed up or their polling shows way too many libs have moved to Virginia."

The former is a given and the latter (demographics) are a b*tch.

I hope you're right. My local TV station's website has a poll up---who would you vote for? So far it's Cuccinelli 50%, McAuliffe 24%. Now that sounds good, but I'm in the heart of solidly red central Virginia. The fact that the crook is getting 24% astounds me.

Terry, buddy, you might want to check what happens when this issue hits the ballot box. They don’t call it a Third Rail for nothing.

It won’t make a difference: most voters cast their ballots for whomever they think is “cool”, without a hint as to what they are actually voting for. This was abundantly clear to me while standing in line to vote in the last election. Winston Churchill was right when he said that the best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.

Absolutely no one mistakes Terry The Punk for being particularly bright,
but this is an especially stupid campaign promise for The Punk.
Please, no one clue The Punk in on what happened in Colorado to the insane gun-grabbers.
Just let this McAuliffe moron keep shooting his mouth off and Kenny will be a shoe-in.
