Senate District 13 and Guns

The Pilot Online web site has a video voter guide featuring several races in the Tidewater area. One of the races pits longtime state senator Fred Quayle and City Councilman Steve Heretick. The issue of guns is one of the questions answered by the two candidates. Senator Quayle takes the opportunity to detail how the problem that led to the Virginia Tech shooting was not weak Virginia gun laws but instead a breakdown of the court and mental health system. Heretick took the opportunity to read Brady Campaign talking points and says he will introduce a bill to close the non-existent "gun show loophole." VSSA believes Quayle deserves re-election.

You can see the video of the Quayle race here. Click the "enter" button then click the "District 13" tab at the top of the video viewer.

UPDATE:

The NRA Political Victory Fund (PVF) has downgraded Heretick's rating from "A" to "C" based on the fact that what he said in the video referenced above is different that what he said on his questionaire.
