Operation Chaos: Gun group endorses Moran
The Democratic primary for governor of Virginia gets a little more interesting today, as gun-rights group, Open Carry, endorses Brian Moran. (Of course, the endorsement only applies to the primary).
Hereâ€™s why all Virginians, regardless of party, should vote for Brian Moran: First, he paid his dues, living, working, and serving in Virginia.
Second, and frankly, Moran has some pretty good pro-gun votes on his record, including voting FOR HB535 in 2005 to legalize carrying concealed handguns in school parking lots, as well as FOR HB 530 in 2004 to preempt all local gun control laws, even those in his home city of Alexandria.
And third, Moran is NOT former Democratic National Party Chairman Terry McAuliffe, a man who is backed heavily by out of state money and interests and probably does not even know where the General Assembly Building is in Richmond!
