Gun Ban Lobby Has a Problem with Delegate Hugo Targeting Real Causes of Violence

Below is an image of a recent mailer that Delegate Tim Hugo sent in his re-election campaign.
If you click the image, you can see that Delegate Hugo is touting the legislation he has sponsored, and (with the exception of so-called "red flag" legislation) passed to address those who use firearms illegally.  None of the measures that passed impact law abiding gun owners, and it seems that is what the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) doesn't like.  The called him out on Twitter, and used an image of a recent post from this blog to accuse him of serving the "gun lobby".
It appears they only support measures that infringe on the rights of law abiding gun owners because they also called out Ohio Governor Mike DeWine because the anti-violence proposals he outlined yesterday did not included any of the favored gun ban proposals touted by groups like CSGV.
Don't be fooled.  Groups like CSGV know nothing about firearm safety.  They don't teach how to safely use a firearm because they don't want you to own firearms.  They use the term "gun safety" to mask their real agenda - infringing on your right to keep an bear arms.  But now that Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke has let the cat out of the bag, the charade is over.

Gun owners support real solutions to address crime committed with firearms, not talking point slogans for the sake of just "doing something".  And that is why the gun ban lobby is opposing Delegate Hugo.
