Skip to comments.McAuliffe: 'I'm Going to Push' for More Gun Control if Elected VA Governor

On Wednesday, Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, said he would "push" for more gun control if he is elected governor in a debate with Republican Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
McAuliffe invoked the Washington Navy Yard, Aurora, and Newtown tragedies and asked, "How many people have to be killed until we wake up to have sensible gun ownership?"
He said he was "dismayed with United States Senate this year" for not bringing up a bill which was co-sponsored by Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) that would have mandated universal background checks.
"As governor, I'm going to push," McAuliffe said. "We need universal background checks for everyone to keep our loved ones safe."

And Virginians might actually vote for this tool.
That ought to cost him some votes. He is stupid.
Maybe because the Republicans can’t win is because too many folks here are too involved in TV shows instead of real life!
I. . . don’t think so. McCarpetbagger says he’s going to limit guns the same week of the huge gun-show in Chantilly ?? 200,000 typical attendence, and all pro-2A ????
He just stepped on his crank BIGTIME. . .
Just got my voter registration after moving to VA last month. So happy to vote against that hack McAuliffe.
WTF is up with VA?
If elected, the people who voted for me are as stupid as pudding and I am really proud of that.
Past elections have caused me to be this cynical.
My guess is alot are commuting pols from DC
How does someone this stupid make it this far in politics?
Jeez, I did not realize the Clintoon Toadie McAuliffe was still grifting.
It's easy when your base is full of low information voters.
There was a story about the race on my local TV news site. Some damn fool posted, “YAAAAAYYYYYY McAuliffe!” among other moronic sentiments. I called McAuliffe corrupt in my response, and my post was removed.
And women are going to elect him.
Keep it up, big guy. You’re doing great. So articulate and such a visionary with such a good grasp on the things that matter to the people of Virginia.
It is because you already know, to the very last vote count, the exact results of the upcoming election.
Are there any examples in history of free people surrendering their only means of protection and still remaining free?
I have asked liberals this a hundred times and I have yet to get a response.
