Covington VA --(Ammoland.com)- No sooner are you told that Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe met with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, then McAuliffe’s web site, by pure coincidence I’m sure, lists key elements of Bloomberg’s gun-control agenda as McAuliffe’s goal for Virginia!
Wow – what were the odds?! [eye roll]
If you enjoyed four years of Tim Kaine as governor, McAuliffe sounds like Tim Kaine on gun-control steroids. Bloomberg will undoubtedly be pulling McAuliffe’s puppet strings remotely from New York:
- Protecting our citizens
- Virginians deserve to feel safe in their communities. As Governor, Terry will take a number of steps to ensure that crime continues to fall in our communities:
- Support common sense gun control measures
As Governor, Terry will support mainstream and majority supported gun control measures like universal background checks, limiting the size of magazines, and a return to the 1-gun-per-month rule. These measures respect Virginians’ right to bear arms while reducing gun violence. [PVC: Respects Virginia’s RKBA? That’s hilarious!]

Terry McAuliffe Pledges Colorado-Like Gun Control if Elected
by AWR Hawkins 23 Sep 2013
Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s (D) website was updated Monday to show his commitment to bring Colorado-like gun control to the commonwealth.
In the section titled “Investing in Virginia’s Urban Centers,” TerryMcAuliffe.com now contains the heading, “Support Common Sense Gun Control Measures.”
Under that heading, it says McAuliffe “will support mainstream and majority supported gun control measures like universal background checks, limiting the size of magazines, and a return to the 1-gun-per-month rule.”
The limitation on magazine capacity is a Colorado-like gun control measure that will put law-abiding Virginians at a disadvantage the moment it is enacted. This is because criminals will not obey it but will keep their “high-capacity” magazines so they can outgun their victims.
Universal background checks will mean an end to private gun sales in the state of Virginia, as they did in Colorado. This happens because Virginians will have to get the government’s permission, via a background check, in order to sell or buy a firearm.
In addition, the universal background check mechanism will allow a McAuliffe governorship to control how many guns Virginians can or cannot buy each month—thus the pledge to “return to the 1-gun-per-month rule.”
Once similar gun control measures passed in Colorado, upset citizens successfully recalled two State Senators behind the legislation within months. [PVC: We don’t have a recall option in Virginia, so we have to get it right at election time.]
