AG Candidates and Second Amendment

The AG candidates debated last night and the Northern Virginia Daily reports this information on where the candidates are on our issue:

All three men were all but in lock step on issues of guns and gun rights.

Cuccinelli pledged to use the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to fight against any overreaching anti-gun laws passed by Congress.

Brownlee also said he was "prepared to go to court to defend the Second Amendment," and knows first hand from his time in Washington that "gun control
doesn't work."

Foster promised to fight to see that the U.S. Supreme Court decision in D.C. v. Heller, which upheld a personal right to keep and bear arms, is applied to the states as well as Washington.

All three appear top be singing from the same page. Cuccinelli of course is the only candidate that goes with his words. I have spoken with Brownlee on this subject and I have no reason to doubt his sincerity. Foster is the only candidate to whom I have not spoken but he did address the subject to VSSA members in the January issue of The Bullet.
