Gun Owners Need to Act Now to Defeat Terry McAuliffe

In the last week, Democrat candidate for Governor, Terry McAuliffe, has declared war on law abiding gun owners.  On Monday, he added a section on his campaign web site on the gun control steps he would support:
Support common sense gun control measures
As Governor, Terry will support mainstream and majority supported gun control measures like universal background checks, limiting the size of magazines, and a return to the 1-gun-per-month rule. These measures respect Virginians’ right to bear arms while reducing gun violence.
Then at the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce debate, McAuliffe went further:
Did you hear that? McAuliffe thinks "mail order" purchases are a problem that needs to be addressed and the only way to do that is with so-called "universal" background checks.  Once again, he reads off of the talking points of Mike Bloomberg and the gun ban lobby.  As AWR Hawkins noted yesterday, "mail order" purchases is a myth perpetuated by the gun ban lobby.  Firearms sold over the Internet through sites like Auction Arms or Gallery of have to be completed through an FFL just like when you go to a local firearms retailer.

But if gun owners don't act now, we will be hearing blather like this for the next four years in Virginia.  You can help now by contacting the NRA-ILA Field Rep nearest you and volunteer to help with phone banks right in the comfort of your own home.  The list of Field Reps is below:
