Gun groups blitz McAuliffe, warn of bans and registration

Gun advocates are stepping up their criticism of Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe as the election enters its final weekend, warning that the Democrat is a Second Amendment critic who would ban some firearms and register others. The National Rifle Association, which raised eyebrows when it didn’t endorse Republican Glenn Youngkin, today pushed back against a “sneaky” bid by a liberal group posing as conservatives critical of the businessman. In taking on Accountability Virginia PAC, the NRA said the ads the group is running are “designed to portray Youngkin as anti-gun to pro-gun voters in the hopes that these voters will sit this election out.” The NRA said in calling out the group that “Terry McAuliffe is an anti-gun extremist.” Secrets has heard concerns from Virginia gun owners about the NRA’s lack of endorsement in the race. Today, the NRA reiterated that it “has not endorsed a candidate in the Virginia governor’s race.” But that doesn’t mean it supports McAuliffe, as its new attack shows. Meanwhile, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a well-known Second Amendment and public safety advocate, has launched a $400,000 effort to highlight its claims that state parole board members appointed by McAuliffe the last time he was governor have released criminals who have gone on to murder and rape. The parole board, said an ad, is “turning violent criminals loose on our streets at the same time they are trying to disarm us. Tell them, ‘No’”
