If you think the race for Virginia Attorney General doesn’t affect you, that’s why you’re about to have your guns confiscated.
There’s a reason George Soros is targeting these races. State attorney general offices are laboratories for just how far gun grabbers can go, and since they both enforce and prosecute, few officials in America are more powerful than a state attorney general.
With that in mind, gun confiscation groups are pouring emergency cash into the race in the swing state of Virginia, where they hope liberal Attorney General Mark Herring can not only confiscate guns, but can be put in a position to take over a U.S. Senate seat in the near future — where he can cast the deciding vote on confiscating your arms.
Herring is already targeting gun owners in other states for arrest, voiding reciprocity agreements, which places gun owners nationwide under threat of arrest for traveling into Virginia carrying what they believe are legal firearms.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety—funded in large part by former New York City mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg—announced on Monday it would be putting an additional $300,000 behind Herring’s re-election bid, bringing its total commitment to Herring to $600,000. Everytown has also given a total of $1,100,000 toward electing Democrat Ralph Northam governor and $100,000 toward electing Democrat Justin Fairfax lieutenant governor.
“He is a political animal,” said John Adams, a former federal prosecutor for the U.S. Attorney’s office running to unseat Herring. “He’s been playing politics with the law in Virginia and it’s just not right.”
“He’s an ideological warrior in the attorney general’s office. He’s got a strong ideology and he’s not afraid to use the power of his office to further his agenda.”
Adams said the support from Everytown is likely a result of Herring’s attempt to unilaterally void nearly all of Virginia’s gun carry reciprocity agreements with other states last year…
“Bloomberg was one of Herring’s biggest donors in the last election and then you saw him take this action as attorney general to void our reciprocity agreements for concealed carry permits with other states,” Adams said. “Given the fact that Herring did that in his first term, it’s not surprising that they’re coming back in with significant funding for him in the second go around.”
