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.
