Va 7th Congressional District Candidate, Spanberger, Wants Universal Background Check

Wherever you look, Bloomberg’s fingerprints are all over these attempts to pass “universal” background checks.
Wherever you look, Bloomberg’s fingerprints are all over these attempts to pass “universal” background checks.

Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Candidate Abigale Spangerger, who is running against Dave Brat, has stated on her website that she wants to ban “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines, and that she supports “guilty until proven innocent” red-flag laws to take away someone's gun without due process.

Now she's talking about eliminating the non-existent “gun show loophole” and supporting universal background checks. She also seems to think that the police not responding immediately during the Parkland, Florida school shooting was acceptable!

Member Mark Hile sent me this, which includes a link to a video on Brat and Spanberger debating gun rights:

I was in attendance at the Brat/Spanberger debate and Spanberger implied that there is a gun show loophole in one of her responses. She also did not seem to think that the Law Enforcement Officer at the Parkland shooting should have gone into the school to stop the shooting. Wonder if she would think differently if her own children were in that school?

I will provide the quotes, but anyone can look up the quotes in the transcript on C-SPAN, I will provide the link at the bottom.

Here is the quote though,

“Three out of four dues-paying NRA members believe that background checks should be in place for all firearm purchase, applying the same standard that exists if you go to a federally point of sale as if you buy at a gun if you buy at a gun show. That is a first step forward.”

I bet she has never purchased a firearm herself, my guess is that she has just been assigned one as a Law Enforcement Officer and CIA Agent. Therefore she does not know about the process of purchasing a firearm. I bet she is just taking for granted what Moms Demand Action tell her, and does not do her own research or reach out to someone on the other side of the issue to better inform her.

Here is the other quote about the Parkland School shooting,

“The discussion I would like to address related to the gun violence. One there was an armed officer at parkland. He did not make entry on the building. He did not attempt to stop the shooter which I do not blame him for, but when we talk about hardening our schools it's necessary to reflect that was the case.”

I guess she would agree with the Obama administration's suggestions that Law Enforcement Officers not go into the schools to stop the shooting, but I sure bet she would think differently if it were her children in the school.

Here is the link to C-SPAN, you can do a search for the word gun to find the quotes faster and then listen to them if you want.

I live in the 7th. I will be voting for Spanberger. There been no discussion on reducing school shootings. That was her point and she was brave enough to take a position. More years of doing nothing but praying is unacceptable. Dave Brat has been supportive of the Virginia Citizens Defense League whose president has supported arming four year olds in kindergarten with stuffed animal covered assault weapons. He also met with them on Martin Luther King day with Corey Stewart who openly campaigns with the KKK. Please do continue to fight for gun rights, but here in the 7th,… Read more »

@ Charles, what do you want, a medal or a chest to pin it on. Why do you bother to type on this site other than start something. I notice others didn’t bite but I did. That’s ok I will call you a troll and maybe you are a bloomturd paid troll trying to make a few bucks. All the democrat freebees probably sound good to you.

The right of decent private citizens to personally possess, transport, and responsibly use arms without government interference is the ultimate freedom and the main pillar supporting all other liberties. Few cultures have allowed their general population access to weapons, the tools of power, to the same degree as the United States. Instead, most societies have restricted the keeping and bearing of arms to a select few power brokers and their agents, often resulting in oppression on a grand scale. Despite a massive amount of historical evidence to the contrary, there is a substantial body of Americans, many occupying positions of… Read more »

Charles, where in any statement or policy of the VCDL has the president of the VCDL ever supported such nonsense? What you are referencing is what Cohen said, not van Cleave. Also, in the video there were no “assault weapons” covered by stuffed toys, but plastic toys covered by stuffed animals. The segment was a joke and van Cleave was playing along, as clearly evidenced in the video. Also in that video, Cohen selectively edited the questions and answers to make it appear van Cleave supported or said certain things that he, and the VCDL, do not support nor advocate… Read more »

What we really need are background checks, mental checks, fact checks, IQ checks on the assholes( maybe check that too) that run for public office

@grim, not a bad idea. Persons elected to public office need all of those checks because they wield more power and have wider effect than any single individual with a firearm.

I often long for the reality of the Virginia State Flag, “Sic Semper Tyrannis” to be reinstated as it was when my ancestors gave their lives in the Army of Northern Virginia. BTW they were not slave owners. Their land was invaded.

John, it is a tight race, but if we all get out and vote, we will still have our rights after the votes are counted. It is shameful and pathetic that a former federal LEO does not believe in private citizens’ ownership of firearms and that she would knowingly lie about the “gun show loophole”. Her firearm ownership is protected under the LEOSA law, more commonly known to LEOs as HR 218. All “gun control” laws are unconstitutional, not just based on the federal 2A, but also by our Virginia Constitution under Section 13. We need to keep reminding our… Read more »
