Lies Cost Lives in Virginia Politics

The big lies I notice are broadcast on the news, and those lies are getting us killed. Democrat politicians in Virginia said we would be safer if we were disarmed. That isn’t true, and what is worse is that the 'gun-control' laws in place today are already too severe and are getting us hurt. This is where we are, where we should go, and where the Virginia Democrats will take us.

You might not have noticed, but you save lives until the police arrive. You defend yourself at home, you do it as you’re walking across the grocery store parking lot, and you do it every day and every night. On rare occasions those lifesaving events might make it into the news, but the vast majority of them don’t. These self-defense cases don’t get reported because you didn’t have to shoot anyone. The criminal ran away because you were not the disarmed victim he thought you were. You made all of us safer, so thank you.

You didn’t press the trigger, so the stories never made it onto the back page of the newspaper. These invisible examples of armed defense happen a lot in Virginia. Honest citizens like you defend themselves with a firearm about once every 16 minutes in the Commonwealth. That may not sound very often until you add them all up to over 33 thousand times a year. That number may sound like an unimportant statistic.. unless it happened to you or someone you love.

The rate of concealed carry in Virginia is slightly above the national average. Unfortunately, so is the crime rate. If you think about it, you probably know someone who was a victim of violent crime. Virginia Democrats want you disarmed, and that is dangerous. .....

"Perhaps Virginia Democrats don't know that concealed carry license holders are more law-abiding than the police. Perhaps the politicians don't know that honest citizens who legally carry a firearm in public are much less likely to shoot innocent people than the police."
