This Democrat candidate is in hot water for a video she posted on Facebook

Democrats will stop at nothing to drum up anti-gun hysteria.

After the Parkland shooting, a Democrat candidate for Congress tried to jump on the anti-gun bandwagon by posting a video on Facebook in hopes it would go viral.

But what she did with this AR-15 on video now has under investigation.


Karen Mallard is a Democrat running for Congress in Virginia’s second district.

She says she grew up in rural Virginia “surrounded by guns.”

In a Facebook video (which you can see below) she posted to her account, Mallard saws an AR-15 in half.

Commenters were quick to jump on her noting that this was modifying a rifle and highly illegal.





Local news WTKR reported:

The video has been viewed more than a million times on her Facebook page. It’s also drawing a lot of negative comments. Some people are saying destroying the rifle won’t keep students safe. Some are saying what Mallard did was illegal.

“It is all to intimidate me and I will not be intimated. And I’m going to fight gun reform, for our children and for our community,” said Mallard.

News 3 reached out to local attorney Eric Leckie and showed him the video. He said, “Sawing off the end of a rifle barrel would probably not destroy it. But if it shortened the barrel to under 16 inches, sawing off the end would make it immediately illegal and it`s a very bad idea,” said Leckie.




Democrats have proven their ignorance of the law.

They don’t understand that the government cannot take away a God-given right to self defense enshrined in the Second Amendment.

Instead, they’d rather exploit teenagers to push their anti-gun agenda.

    WOW, TO FIND OUT THAT OBAMA’S ADMINISTRATION DOJ CHANGED THE RULES FORCING THE FBI TO DELETE 500,000 FROM THE FUGITIVE BACKGROUND CHECKS. AND PEOPLE WONDER HOW THESE PEOPLE GET GUNS WHEN A THOROUGH BACKGROUND CHECK IS NEEDED TO PURCHASE. I GUESS THAT’S WHY NEWS OF LAS VEGAS HAS BEEN NIL?

    AND IT’S RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNERS FAULT, WHO GO THRU BACKGROUND CHECKS? IT’S THE 2ND AMENDMENT THAT NEEDS TO BE “REVISED”?

    SO YOU TELL ME, DO YOU THINK THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION WAS WORRIED ABOUT NATIONAL SECURITY, OR WAS THIS A SET UP TO PUT OUT “SCENARIOS” TO TAKE OUR GUNS, WHILE THIS PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION GOT CAUGHT GUN RUNNING TO MEXICO?

    MAGA! KEEP AMERICA GREAT! TIME TO EDUCATE OUR CHILDREN WHO REALLY DROPPED THE BALL AND PUT THEIR LIVES IN JEOPARDY! TIME TO GET US HISTORY BACK INTO EDUCATION AND TEACH THEM THE WORD TYRANNY!

    Democrats obviously have come to believe that the only way to election is to act like Republicans, in favor of the 2nd Amendment and any other Amendment they can represent as their solid beliefs. Now, we have the woman in the above article featuring herself as a rifle fancier, yesterday there was a young Democrat running in a special election in a western PA county, who acted every bit the part of a conservative Republican, even disowning direction from House minority leader Pelosi. As a result, and while the final count is still undecided, he did well acting like a Republican in a district Pres. Trump won by 20 points.

  3. Sam Hammond says:

    I think we should ban all liberals, and islamist extremists from having guns, since they are the ones doing all these mass murders..

  4. Margo C says:

    didn’t you just love the way she said…We decided we dint want this in our but we didn’t want it in anybody else’s home either… who in the phuck does she think she is? This is MY home and I will make those decisions for myself.. so go stuff it lady

    • Judy says:

      Liberals are the self proclaimed voices of wisdom and what’s best for everyone else and if they don’t want it, nobody should be allowed to have it.

  5. Dr. J says:

    …and now we can see one of the things that’s wrong in Congress. Idiots like this actually get elected by other idiots. She needs to be locked up for committing a crime!!

  6. C M says:

    Shortening a rifle barrel does not make much difference but cutting the barrel on a shotgun does. Are people that stupid.

    • Cliff says:

      Shortening a rifle barrel Is ILLEGAL by BATF regulations. She CAN be arrested and Charged, BUT seeing she is a DEMOCOMMUNIST she will “get away” with it as usual, while if one of US tried it we would be in JAIL by now.

  7. Cecil says:

    A complete total Jackwagon and anybody who would vote for her!!! Progressive liberal Democrat with a mental disorder period.

  8. Jim says:

    She should be arrested ASAP. She broke federal law by creating a SBR . It is obvise that the barrel has been cut much shorter the 16 inches.

  9. george shores says:

    she destroyed the barrel, and hand guard, thats it, new barrel, a little over $100.00, new hand guard, $25, to $40.00, good as new!i forgot the gas tube. $15.00, not hard to replace, or, its cheap to get elected!

  10. She just committed a Felony on a public media site. By law, she should be arrested and thrown in jail. I’ve seen former soldiers locked up in Federal Prison for bringing full auto war trophies back from Iraq. She just made a SBR, which is illegal if she does not have the proper FFL, which I’m just assuming, dim wit does not. She should be prosecuted.

  11. Has the FBI already been to her house to arrest her? And if not, why not? She committed a felony on camera in front of millions of viewers, and bragged about doing it!
    Where is this weapon that she CLAIMS to have destroyed now? I would be willing to bet it was put back in the same place she had to get it out of for her little demonstration! Inside her house! And if she was so on the side of “against guns” why would she allow her husband to bring this gun into her home in the first place???
    Come on lady, admit it, it’s all about getting votes with democrats. It always is. You say what you think people want to hear so you can get a check mark beside your name.
    Tell us…how many more guns do you and your husband own that you aren’t willing to talk about? Give it up, cause we know there are more. If your husband was willing to let you shorten the barrel of that gun, he either has more guns, or he’s planning on you disappearing by gunfire!!! I’d be real careful if I were you!

  12. CinciJim says:

    This was nothing more than a political stunt, likely intended to garner votes. Watch her arm & body movements while she speaks. She even mentioned her political ambitions in the video. A $500-$800 AR is a small sacrifice for an opportunity to enter into the political arena and secure a future of personal financial riches.

  13. Gail says:

    Take a good look at her .If she gets elected by the braindead then we will be searching her out .This week Iran was trying to get the elected officials ( theyare not our dictators) to disarm Americansthis idiot as well as those against guns have no idea that our guns owned by law abiding citizens whose guns are only out of the safe for hunting or to look are what is between a rogue government and our destruction .They never speak of the ones Holder armed to kill us with or the illegals who kill us with their guns they are not suppose to have .But we all k ow Americans are dying at the hands of demooamd their dumb people who believe every lie out of their moths .When in fact they couldn’t kill enough of us with “Their Baby Planned Parenthood or their KKK” .Now they simply want our guns so their Muslim friends can finish us off .

RICK SCOTT SIGNED THIS WEEK THIS LIBASTORS LAW IS AGAIN HUMAN LIFE THEY SEND OUR YOUNG PEOPLE WHO LIVE BY THEY SELF TO DEATH THAT IS UNHUMAN-DISCRIMINATING AGAIN 1 GROUP OF PEOPLE IS WHAT THIS COMUNIST BASTARDS HIPOCRITS IS DOING

  15. dennis murray says:

    Is it working in Chicago? or any other inner city. Hell no they want them to kill each other.

  16. blackwingA520 says:

    F that! If she told ME to get rid of an $800 gun, she’d be gone, NOT the gun.

  17. blackwingA520 says:

    Nothing will happen to her, because she’s a DEMOCRAT! Same as Hillary.

  18. Ms watson says:

    This is exactly what is wrong with our nation today, stupid dimwits like her who are ether communists, or so damn stupid it is unbelievable. Never in our history has the need for citizens to be armed than right now! We have been sold out by every branch of government, these people don’t give a damn about any children, they would throw their on kids to the sharks for money and power. You need only to look at the money coming into the Clinton foundation and this is one of many. Clinton’s, Obama’s, Bush’s Carter, Bush Sr. have all sold us out to the new world order the only thing keeping them from finishing the job is armed American citizens.

  19. Ralph A Nettles, Sr says:

    What I don’t understand is why they always blame the gun. A gun is a tool, just like a hammer, a saw, or a baseball bat. There are so many tools that if used properly to get a job done, but any tool can be misused by the person using the tool.
    It’s about time we looked at the person holding the tool rather than the tool itself.

    • Cliff says:

      I have been saying the same thing for YEARS, BUT this isn’t about “GUN CONTROL” it is all about PEOPLE CONTROL. When the AMERICAN citizens are unarmed they will become “subjects” of the “deep State” DEMOCOMMUNIST DICTATORS that have been TRYING to disarm LAW-ABIDING citizens for as long as I can remember. …At anytime throughout HISTORY, when the populace is disarmed, (for “safety reasons” and NOW the “new DEMOCOMMUNIST talking point”…. “protection of our children”)….. (like the DEMOCOMMUNISTS are “preaching” and the LAME STREAM MEDIA KEEPS PUSHING, CONTROL will be FIRST, then annihilation soon follows. NEVER, EVER give up your ONLY means of protection against a TYRANNICAL “government”. The second amendment was NOT about “hunting” or “target shooting”
      It is PROTECTION against TYRANNY. Get a copy and READ the CONSTITUTION and the BILL OF RIGHT if you can’t understand my post.

  20. Terre says:

    It’s been PROVEN that guns keep people safe; banks which are known to have gun-carrying guards are robbed far less than those who don’t. Hey Democrats – if someone or several people advance on you or attack you, are you going to defend yourself? Probably not. Then – you’re going to wish you had a gun! Why do you think this right was SPECIFICALLY & PURPOSELY included in the Constitution? Not to mention, the criminal element will ALWAYS gain access to guns whether they’re legal or illegal. Case in point – the drug trade. Think for once. Use the brain God gave you & obtain some common sense from somewhere! Stop listening to what your god (do we know who this is? Yes, we do) keeps whispering in your ears & open your ears to the truth. Come to reality & you might be real surprised at what you hear & find. You Dems are the most dishonorable people in this nation – since you don’t like this country, which you have proven to be so, then LEAVE. There’re plenty of leftist countries in which to live & who’d be more than happy to add you to their numbers. You purposely stir up strife & animosity, encourage & harbor hatred, delight & revel in evil. We know the principle by which you live & foster: order out of chaos. Shame on you! Remember, whether you believe it or not, the day’s coming for you to stand before The Lord God Almighty & Head Judge – what’re you going to offer as a reason for you actions? Whether you believe He is Lord or not is irrelevant – if you believe cats are really dogs, it doesn’t matter – they’re still cats – it is what it is. Period. I’d rather live like there IS a God & find out at my last breath there isn’t than live like there’s no God & find out there IS. But all you need for proof of His existence & provision is to open the Big Instruction Book for Living Excellently & read. Simple. Easy peasy! So – there’ll be NO excuses accepted for behaving, living, advocating & implementing that which you are doing.

  21. Gerald Ladd says:

    LOL..we need DemonRAT control, not gun control!

  22. Mgjkf says:

    If she was really a gun person she would know that sawing off a shotgun is illegal. Heck I know that from a John Wayne movie.

    • Cliff says:

      If she was a “gun person” she would realize that sawing off the barrel of ANY gun is illegal. I think she needs to be arrested and charged.
      (ignorance of the LAW is no “excuse”)

  23. Alan says:

    Pardon me for seeming suspicious re the referenced “investigation”, but since when has an DOJ or ATF “investigation” of anti gun/anti gun rights activity that might just be violative of existing law and or regulations gotten more than a yawn from the above mentioned? Did it get so much as a yawn? Additionally, did she cut up a real, functioning rifle, or was she merely playing games with a state prop? Be really interesting to find out.
    additionally, did the lady cut up, in the process shortening the barrel of a real functioning rifle, or was she merely playing games with a stage prop?

  24. Van says:

    We don’t need gun control but what we do need is comprehensive Democrat control. Bring back the nut house to lock there dumb asses up in. Democrats are the greatest danger to our Republic.

  25. conbi says:

    Anybody out there remember Randy Weaver up in Idaho back in the mid seventies- eighties. He was prosecuted for cutting a shotgun barrel 1/4 inch under 16″.

    • Cliff says:

      Indeed I DO! “Ruby Ridge” Dog killed, wife was shot with a baby in her arms inside of the cabin door. I think the SON was shot also. MORON that “sniped” got a PROMOTION.

  26. CaptTurbo says:

    So much stupidity in one blubbery body.

  27. Alan says:

    Did this congress critter create the dreaded “short barreled rifle” , lacking “official permission”, off to the Bastille with her.

  28. Gary says:

    This stupid incompetent POS needs to go to jail not congress! What she did was highly illegal and punishable by many years in jail. If it was any one else they would have in jail five minutes after sawing it in half. She needs to be shown that now is above the law. PERIOD !!!
    Throw the book at her and let her and all the others like her rot in hell

  29. GySgt Lew says:

    If you check the past for shooters, starting with Lincoln, you’ll find that most were DEMOCRATS !! The best way for Gun Conbtrol is not let any Democrats have guns!!!!! Problem solved. If would scare the hell out of me if Pelosi had a gun…..

  30. Travis says:

    The ONLY chance we, the citizens, have against a tyrannical government is high capacity guns (like AR-15s), more citizens owning them, and plenty of ammunition. The direction we are heading in now will leave us only with pistols against tanks.

  31. Tim Wilkins says:

    She is like a lot of people that don’t know much about guns and half of what they do know is incorrect. And I would know what they did with that rifle all it needs is a new barrel. I can give it a good home 🏡.

  32. Jim says:

    Seems to me most everyone can’t see the forest for the tree in front of them. No matter how bad the following logic is going to sound, it is a simple truth. If someone wants to do a lot of damage to some group of people due to some retarded mental condition they may have, they will do it no matter what, so if the retard didn’t have access to a gun(s) (which of course they will always find guns for sale from the criminal element of this country) but for argument sake, let say this retard couldn’t find a gun meeting his needs, what would he do? All the guns are gone because of close-minded tree huggers WHO can’t see the forest…so what does he do??? He builds a bomb….a really big bomb because he does not know what he is doing, so he gets into a school and sets off the bomb killing 70% of the students and teachers…..if he had used a gun, then he might have murdered 5% tops. If someone is bent to do harm, they will, and if that is the case, then the method they use to bring this harm to fruition needs to be something that will do the least damage….handguns, rifles, are the least damaging! Yes, this sounds cold but it is the truth. The forest is filled with wacko’s, so if you can‘t see the forest because of the tree you are hiding behind….shame on you! Guns do not kill or murder…people murder people; whether it is a gun; the jawbone of an ass; a puma or bowie knife; a golf club…..all can be weapons that can be used to kill or murder someone. What are they going to do after the guns? Get rid of golf clubs; 2”X4”’s; hammers; nail guns; wrenches….see how STUPID that sounds!!!…so until the wackos are identified and hospitalized until they can be fixed or confined, guns are the best way to limit the damage the wackos can do to the rest of us, until we can fix them, but that will not happen until we focus on the problem….the wacko…rather then the selected destructive mechanism they elect to use. SO, I will end with this well said truth: “MAKING GOOD PEOPLE HELPLESS WON’T MAKE BAD PEOPLE HARMLESS!

    • Dennis says:

      You are very wise indeed!

    • Tim Wilkins says:

      I agree with the point you are trying to make. But once you began calling the Florida shooter a retard you made at least half of the people reading this mad 😡 and missing the point of the comment. Just saying.

    • Judy says:

      I agree Jim. Gun haters just refuse to acknowledge that taking honest law abiding people’s guns is exactly what the criminal element wants. If they don’t have to worry about getting shot, they could mug, assault, rape, break into houses, do whatever they’re going to do anyway a lot safer. Liberals would rather be victims then defend themselves, and then get mad at the people who call liberalism a mental disorder.

    • John says:

      I agree maybe they should concentrate more on how to videos on making bombs

  33. Really dumb move on her part. All you need to do is replace the barrel and shroud. They’re just as common as replacement grips or magazines. That is what police department armory should do and they will have a new firearm to use / issue as the need arises. I think Forrest Gump said “Stupid is as stupid does.

  34. Dennis says:

    I have been using guns safely and hunting ever since I was 7 years old. I am now 62 years old. My brother in-law took me hunting when I was 7, and I started using a single shot .410 gauge shotgun. We hunted squirrels and rabbits. I became a member of the NRA when I was 13 years old and had also taken the NRA Gun Safety Course when I was in Boy Scouts at the time. While attending college I enrolled in the ROTC marksmanship classes and we trained on M16 rifles. We shot for our grades in 4 different shooting postions standing, kneeling, sitting and squatting. I aced the course in all areas. I have owned a 44 magnum and I presently own a 9mm and a 40 cal semi automatic handguns. I have never once had any incidents in all these years of gun use and training. I have my guns for protection and self defense. The second Amendment is my right to own guns and defend myself. This is a God given right to protect yourself and cannot and shall not be taken away by a tyrannical Government! I will defend this right to the end without exception! The Dick Act was also passes many years ago that was written by Government to make sure Government does not ever take away this right to own without contestation! Read it, live it, and live your life! You cannot rely on the Government or law to protect you when seconds count in defending yourself! It takes police at least 5 minutes or longer to respond to a crime scene. It only takes my bullet seconds to reach its target! Honestly tell me, who are you going to rely on? Yourself or the Government! This is a no brainer! You have a Government that will let Planned Parenthood abort 125,000 babies per year but the only thing the Libtards want is to take away your guns! The Democrats want 100% control of your life! A vote for a Democrat is a vote for a Communist!

  35. Francisco Machado says:

    I believe I read that the gun Mallard cut belonged to her husband. Not only would I expect that to have significant negative family relationship consequences (since he owned the AR-15 I assume his outlook on firearm possession differs radically from hers) but in some jurisdictions there may be problems with transferring a firearm from one person to another, especially since I doubt if he said “Here’s my thousand dollar gun. Cut the barrel in half.” I wouldn’t want to be visiting when he found out.

  36. Tim_62 says:

    I also live in the southwestern part of Virginia, not Wise county, and her claiming to be a teacher just goes to show why our public schools are failing. And they say teachers aren’t paid enough, she must have plenty of money to throw away seeing she just maimed an innocent rifle. Unless she or a family member commuted a crime with it. Also, Her husband must be an idiot to allow her to do that. We know who wears the pants in that family. This woman gives teachers and southwest Vitginia a bad name.

  37. Daniel Wright says:

    It’s better to have a gun and not need it>>than to need one and not have it>>A gun is a tool,learn how and when to use it>The NRA is a good place to start they are about two(2) things Your right to keep and bear arms and fire arm’s safety??

  38. Tom Cook says:

    This gueynte is a standard stupid mindless libtard; would love to see her attacked and sexually abused–she’d become a major opponent of gun control.

  39. Cliff says:

    This was NOT only illegal, by making this rifle barrel too short according to BATF definition, but idiotic besides. She only destroyed the “upper”part of the rifle. All one has to do to make the rifle operate again is replace the upper and you are good to go again. Just another “political stunt” by an “EMOTIONAL” DEMOCOMMUNIST, and she should be arrested and thrown in a cell for a while to “think it over”

  40. Bob Hunt says:

    John Wayne was right, you cant fix stupid!

  41. KAZ says:

    ANY RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNER KNOWS THE MEANING OF “INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY” AND HAS RESPECT FOR A GUN AND TEACHES THEIR CHILDREN ALSO TO RESPECT. THIS INDIVIDUAL MIGHT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT UP AROUND GUNS, BUT AS AN ADULT HAS LOST THAT KNOWLEDGE OF RESPECT BY USING THE DEMOCRATIC/LIBERAL BULLY AND SCARE TACTIC. HERE’S COMMON SENSE LOGIC, ACTUALLY ENFORCE THE LAWS. PLUS GET THOSE ILLEGALS WHO BRING IN ILLEGAL GUNS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY. NOT TAKE OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHT FROM RESPONSIBLE AMERICANS. AND USING THE CHILDREN NOW IN THE “BULLY AND SCARE” TACTIC IS DISGUSTING.

    • Judy says:

      Liberals don’t know the meaning of self responsibility, but it is funny to watch these liberals who have no knowledge about guns, make fools of themselves while trying to be clever.
