Skip to comments.McAuliffe: 'I'm Going to Push' for More Gun Control if Elected VA Governor
Posted on 09/25/2013 6:27:00 PM PDT by markomalley
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.

I was going to post something very similar.
satan always overplays his hand.
Liberals from Maryland and the Northeast have infested the state and are trying to turn it blue. VA is one of two key states (TX being the other) that liberals have trained their sites on. I wouldn't be surprised if McAuliffe wins due to vote fraud.
That will fly with the invaders from Maryland living in NoVa. They voted their state into an unlivable people’s republic, and then moved to Virginia because the MD taxes are, surprise, sky high, as high as the crime rate in PG County. Now they have started to work their “magic” on Virginia. And are well on their way toward ruining it. Exhibit A: the slimeball U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly. Exhibit B: local government in Alexandria and Arlington, Arlington being marginally worse; Fairfax County taxes are an outrage. Exhibit C: the Saudi Islamic Academy. Exhibit D: Arlandia, which has been entirely invaded, colonized and taken over by the worst dregs of Central America, who never seem to be short of guns themselves. It is no longer American in any way, shape or form except for the benefits they all absorb like mother’s milk. Yes, the people of NoVA will lap it up. Am I bitter? Yes.
“How many people have to be killed until we wake up to have sensible gun ownership?”
That’s a good question...right along with asking why you are fighting against sensible gun ownership and establishing gun-free slaughter zones.
With 20,000 gun laws on the books, why does this ahole McAuliffe think another law would make a difference?
Bloomturd is funneling major dollars to merry Terry, so McAuliffe has to toe his gun grabber master’s line of BS.
I guess I just answered my own question.
If the GOP doesn’t run ads in Virginia laying into this rat toad on the Second Amendment issue, then the GOP is even more stupid than I thought.
Obama won by 150,000 votes.
I think it happened already.
If the citizens of VA vote for this fool, they deserve everything they get.
I watched the debate at the gym tonight and followed it on twitter. Cucinelli seemed to do well. Lots of Women for Ken outside doing a sign wave. According to their facebook post, they outnumbered the Dems 4-1.
I will disown my home state if they elect McAuliffe.
the writing is on the wall and it couldn’t be any more clear, if you come after the guns, you get your ass handed to you. especially in a state that has a long tradition of firearms ownership. Yet here he is, promising to go after the guns. Well, OK. Go for it dummy.
Not yet he hasn’t. But he will.
I say we should encourage the guy to say it loud and proud...so he’ll lose!
“Liberals from Maryland and the Northeast have infested the state and are trying to turn it blue. “
Wow! Just like they’ve already done here in California. Pelosi is from Maryland. Her father was mayor of Baltimore before he went to jail. The family name was D’Alessandro.
I thought Saul Alinsky directed that the Marxist radicals should not say what they intended to do.
Virginia requires ID to vote and outside of some districts voting 100% for Obama and some issue with College Students, Virginia pretty much has it under control. This is an off-year election so it is pretty much who gets the most voters out. Tim Kaine did win a Governorship in Virginia, but he did it against a very moderate Republican and he did not mention anything about Gun Control in the run-up.
Abortion looks to be Cuccinelli’s weak point, they have been hammering him on this. If the Evangelicals don’t show up for him, you will not see anymore Virginia statewide candidates openly talking about it. Part of the reason Bob McDonnell has no future is last year’s General Assembly Abortion fight.
I watched that debate tonight and Cuccinelli wiped the floor with McAuliffe. mcAuliffe stayed with three or four talking points and repeated them often. Cuccinelli, by contrast, gave serious and substantive answers.
Sadly, with women voters demanding a right to a dead baby, they’re hard into McAuliffe’s camp.
So!!!! for the absent minded libs here it is in your face.
It was meant to keep the gubmint at bay,,,, period!!!! END OF REMINDER!!!!
Northern Viriginia (NoVa) down I-95 to around Fredericksburg is no longer in any meaningful way Southern. It is an extension of the Northeast Corridor with the same cultural attitudes. McAuliffe is using the Obama strategy of winning big in NoVa to compensate for losing in rural “Southern” VA. He has gone big time in pushing the social liberal message with gun control and he has consistently run ads touting his Pro-Abortion message.
The problem McAuliffe has is that NVA will not be turning out in anywhere near the numbers of 2012. Also the recent polls show Ken picking up steam especially when looking at the composition of some of the ones like WaPo one that assumes a ridiculous electorate for non presidential elections. The GOP side has enthusiasm on their side and even many of the natural Democrat allies in the media are not enamored of him and have been generating considerable negative news where he is concerned. Also the fact that McAuliffe can’t get anywhere near 50% shows this race is a tossup. What I’m impressed with is that E.W. Jackson is managing to keep his race neck and neck.
Because, of course, we ALL know that THAT would have stopped the Navy Yard Shooter, the Colorado shooter, the Sandy Hook shooter...
I can picture those guys now... "Wow... I better NOT shoot up any public places today, because like, you know, umm, I had like - a Background Check - DUDE!! and like, you know... THAT would be like all illegal an sh*t...."
Yeah... THAT'LL do it. Proving once again McAullife is just another worthless Democrat Bolshevik bonehead.
To the NRA: Fire up your Virginia chapter and get busy. Send lawyers, guns and money as the saying goes.
To all gunnie groups and clubs in Virginia: mobilize your people and resources.
If you have Recall option, be prepared to mobilize and exercise it against ANY of these clowns trying to infringe on your Second Amendment rights - Dem OR RINO.
"The chair is against the wall..... John has a long mustache.... the long sobs of the violins of Autumn...."
Not a majority of them.
But with that GD Libertarian in the race he doesn’t need majority.
Might? Probably will.
McAuliffe might simply have said, “How many more mentally ill people will it take to erase the rights of regular Americans?” Never in the history of America has the behavior of mentally ill people been used as a justification of political despotism. This is straight out of the National Socialist textbook from the 1930s—the Reichstag Fire tactic, that is, take an event committed by a mentally-ill person and use it to justify political actions that are otherwise illegal and unconstitutional. Howe much longer must we, the American people, suffer these acts intended to erase the rights that Americans have uniquely been gifted and subsequently earned?
By the way, it is clear the motivation for McAuliffe’s statements—it is the money shoveled on him from NYC.
