ICYMI: Locke Op-Ed: "The Gun Lobby is Out of Touch with Virginians"
On August 9, 2018, The Richmond Times-Dispatch published an op-ed written by Senator Mamie Locke (D-Hampton) titled "The Gun Lobby is Out of Touch with Virginians."
Key Quote: “This culture of defending irresponsible gun usage is at odds with our mission of building safer communities and, quite frankly, it defies common sense. When the argument that bump stocks are “fun to shoot” outweighs the safety of our children, we are doing a disservice to our constituents and to our Commonwealth. The gun lobby is out of touch, and so are my Republican colleagues who vote with them.”
