Shameless Jeannemarie Davis

Next weekend, Virginia Republicans will come to Richmond to pick their candidates for Lt. Governor and Attorney General (Ken Cuccinelli is unopposed for Governor after current Lt. Governor Bill Bolling dropped out of the race).  There are seven candidates vying for the nomination for Lt. Governor.  Two have stellar voting records on issues important to gun owners - State Senator Steve Martin and Delegate Scott Lingamfelter.  Four have no real voting record, though Pete Snyder has been charged with "taking a walk" so he did not have to vote on allowing firearms on campus as a member of the College of William and Mary Board of Visitors.  That leaves us former State Senator Jeannemarie Davis.  The only way to describer her is, shameless.

My mailbox has been flooded with mailers from candidates and the one below is the latest I received from Jeannemarie:
She claims to be the only candidate that "we can trust to protect our values" including "Protecting the Second Amendment."  Davis goes on to list that she is, a) a gun owner and NRA member, b) that she voted against legislation that would have eliminated the ability to carry firearms in public, c) voted to protect firearm manufacturers from being sued by local governments, and d) voted against increasing the cost of applying for a concealed carry permit.  While it is true she cast some positive votes as both a member of the House of Delegates and the State Senate, there is the pesky little fact that when she ran for re-election to the State Senate in 2007, she ran a campaign solely focused on closing the non-existent "gun show loophole" and trying to paint her Democratic opponent as being too pro-gun.

And then there was this appearance with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2007:

Do either of those look like someone you can trust to protect your Second Amendment Rights?  Don't be fooled. Jeannemarie Davis is no friend to gun owners.  If you are a delegate to next week's GOP State Convention, don't vote for Jeannemarie.
