McAuliffe Lectures: Morning Show Comments On Virginia Shooting

posted on April 4, 2016

“There are too many guns out in society today.”

That’s one of the first comments by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe concerning the recent shooting of a police officer in Richmond, Va. The governor was speaking on “Elliott in the Morning,” the early show on alternative rock station WWDC-FM from Washington, D.C., about Virginia State Police Trooper Chad Dermyer, who died from his injuries in a bus station shooting last Thursday. The suspect was a career criminal with multiple felony arrests and convictions and who was prohibited from possessing a gun. Yet McAuliffe, as usual, chose to blame guns and gun ownership instead of the violent criminal who killed the officer. 

On April 1, McAuliffe appeared on the same controversial morning show to discuss his dinner with gun-banners Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly, and largely talked of the need to create more restrictions against law-abiding gun owners. McAuliffe commented, “We’re all trying to get to a place with common-sense restrictions.” 

There’s still no word on how blaming law-abiding gun owners for the bad deeds of career criminals is considered “common sense.”
