The owner of a gun store in Arlington County, Virginia is suing 64 individuals for harassing the owner and landlord, sending death threats to the 16-year-old daughter of the owner and conspiring to force the business to close.
The Washington Post reported on Monday that seven state legislators, an Arlington County board member, and a school board member were among those named in the lawsuit.
The gun store, NOVA Armory, opened on March 26 amid much controversy. Although some were opposed to the store’s opening, hundreds turned out to see the store on its first day. Protesters turned out in opposition to the store. The store has remained open.
Before it opened, four state delegates and three state senators sent a letter on official letterhead to the landlord pleading that he not lease the building to the store. …
All seven of the lawmakers named are Democrats.
