Virginia Democrats Join War Against Proposed Arlington Gun Store

posted on March 4, 2016

All seven state legislators representing Virginia’s Arlington County—all Democrats—have joined residents trying to block Nova Armory from opening a gun store adjacent to Fort Myer, home of the U.S. Army’s “Old Guard,” by writing a letter urging the landlord not to rent space for the store. Last week, the Arlington County Board sniffily signaled its official disapproval of the plan, as well. 

Opponents of the store created a change.org petition against it, which at press time had 3,103 signatures, and supporters started another, which had 519. According to the Washington Post, the store plans to specialize in high-dollar, engraved European skeet, trap and hunting shotguns—“fine works of art that become family heirlooms.”

This, apparently, led the legislators to fret about “potentially nefarious and illegal activities such as ... illegally paying Virginia residents to buy guns, creating a ‘black market’ to sell firearms for cash or drugs.” Oh, how scary!
