Yup, Republican Senator Devolites Davis' bill alright - & she is running against her Democratic challenger Chap Peterson on the basis that she is a stronger PROPONENT of gun control!!
With each candidate trying to appeal to moderate voters, partisan labels were already rubbing off yesterday. Devolites Davis trumpeted her leadership on legislation creating health-care benefits for poor children and regulating assisted-living facilities. She pointed to Petersen's "anti-gun control" record against measures to ban guns in libraries and on school property.
"He was putting potential voters in Southwest Virginia ahead of the constituents who elected him to represent them," she said.
