Jeannemarie Devolites Davis is pulling out all the stops to get re-elected, as a candidate should who is in a tight race. Not all of those need to get pulled, though, and this one is a particularly dumb move.
Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York City who decided it would be a good idea to send people to Virginia in order to attempt to conduct straw purchases of firearms — a misguided at best notion that was strongly batted down by Attorney General Bob McDonnell and the General Assembly this year — is coming to Jeannemarie’s district to campaign for her tomorrow. The topic will predictably focus on during his visit is “gun control”. It was bad enough that Jeannemarie abandoned our Second Amendment rights in her quest to retain her seat, but bringing Michael Bloomberg down to tell Virginians what our laws regarding firearms should be is an outrage.
It’s too bad that Bob McDonnell is out of the country and won’t have an opportunity to confront Bloomberg, or respond to what will certainly be a series of unfounded attacks on the liberties carefully protected by Virginians. One might suspect that the timing of this visit is designed to deliberately preclude such a possibility, demonstrating the gutlessness of those who hold dear the notion that the way to protect citizens from violence is to ensure that they are fully disarmed when confronting it.
I can’t wait until Jeannemarie finally announces that she’s becoming a liberal Democrat.
UPDATE: The Associated Press has the full story, and this part I found fascinating:
The billionaire mayor who last June dropped his Republican affiliation to become an independent, has not even met Devolites Davis, but has known her husband, U.S. Rep. Thomas M. Davis, for years.
NLS has a post up on this (big surprise, he’s working for Chappie), but the comments in that thread are hilarious. I particularly enjoyed “[Jeannemarie] would be better off if she had Ronald McDonald, possibly even Grimace, coming to help out. At least that way some kids may drag voting parents to see him.”
If the fishing in this district is halfway decent on November 6th, it’s going to be really hard to find a spot in the local streams in this Senate District as conservatives are going to be shoulder-to-shoulder on the riverbanks. If Bloomberg’s visit hadn’t been scheduled at Dulles Airport, they’d probably otherwise attending it while open-carrying their favorite pistols. Can you imagine how Bloomberg would start stuttering and stammering in the presence of Virginians who exercise constitutionally protected rights that are wrongly denied to New Yorkers?
