RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) –
The Democratic Party of Virginia and gun control advocates pressed the republican candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general today for their stance on gun issues. This comes after the National Rifle Association endorsed Republican candidates Ed Gillespie, Jill Vogel, and John Adams last week.
Delegate Delores McQuinn, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Virginia State Director Lori Haas, former U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Heaphy, and Richmond School Board Member Scott Barlow attended the press conference outside the Capitol today. They stated that the NRA asks candidates to fill out a questionnaire before they’re endorsed. They called on the Republican candidates to reveal their responses to the questionnaire, particularly on whether they’d allow the concealed carry of guns at schools.
