The first major Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate said she will prioritize on the Second Amendment in a state where gun rights have become a privilege. Senator Amanda Chase declared her interest on the gubernatorial seat to a crowd of 100 supporters outside the state capitol. She said that Virginians were tired of the current Democratic state government's disregard for the constitution especially on gun legislation. Her remarks resonate with most Virginians who pushed their counties to adopt the second amendment resolutions across the state.
“I can’t take it anymore,” She declared. “I can no longer just continue to hold accountable the leadership and legislators that embrace the stripping of law-abiding citizens of their First Amendment rights, Second Amendment rights, and their constitutional freedoms.”
She criticized Republicans who make concessions on gun rights. “People are tired of weak-kneed Republicans that get in there and moderate to the middle,” she said. Her remarks triggered a fellow GOP Sen. Mark Obenshain who criticized her for what he called the lack of “level substance.”
Chase has consistently practiced her second amendment rights by openly carrying to the Senate floor during committee sessions. She was strongly outspoken during the preparation of Virginia Lobby Day gun rally against the state apparatus which focused on frustrating the rights of second amendment supporters to convene the rally. She warned the participants against falling for the bait which the state government had laid hoping that the rally would turn violent.
Sen. Chase will be facing several democrats including former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, Sen. Jennifer McClellan, and Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy. The incumbent Gov. Ralph Northam will not contest due to term limits. She will also face Republican Peter Snyder who has also declared his interest in the seat.
Virginia has become ground zero in gun legislation after Democrats took over both houses after the gun control sugar daddy Michael Bloomberg made generous contributions to Democratic campaigns in exchange for passing his gun control laws. Consequently, gun control will be a major factor in the coming Virginia gubernatorial race.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
