Americans for Responsible Solutions, a gun control super PAC that was founded by Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly have plans to support several Democrat candidates in this fall’s state elections. With multiple gun control bills that did not make it out of committee this past year because of the slim Republican majority a change in control of the legislature will alter that drastically. Peter Ambler director of ARS stated,” not only does getting these folks into the majority give us what we need to pass lifesaving legislation, it gives them a mandate to do that.”
“Lifesaving legislation”? Not one piece of gun control has been proven to reduce crime or save lives. You only have to look at some of the worst crime ridden cities that have the strictest gun control to see that these laws do not work. For some odd reason these people think that punishing law abiding citizens is the answer to preventing criminals from breaking the law. There are plenty of laws on the books that are supposed to keep criminals from using guns in crimes but criminals don’t seem to obey these laws, so why should they obey new regulations? People need to know the truth, the lies of the progressives need to be countered.
There is a great organization in Virginia that is fighting to protect our 2nd Amendment rights and provide information concerning gun control legislation, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, they work tirelessly to counter the misinformation put out by the left. I encourage you to join this organization and donate if possible so we can maintain our rights. Another good source is John Lott who has done an amazing amount of research on the effectiveness of gun control laws, he has written a very revealing book on this subject, More Guns Less Crime. Check it out, it is well worth the read and can give you ammunition to fight the progressives lies about gun control.
