[Ed. – What a hero. As the National Gun Show points out, the Walmart across the street is more of a “super-spreader” than the gun show could possibly be, especially since the gun show worked closely with the county to ensure full compliance with all COVID-19 measures. Come to think of it, sounds like grounds for a lawsuit. Unequal treatment under the law.]
On Thursday, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, bragged on social media how he had blocked a massive gun show from taking place in his state.
Herring tweeted: “BREAKING: I have successfully BLOCKED a massive gun show from operating at full capacity this weekend in NOVA. Putting hundreds or even thousands of Virginians at risk for the sole purpose of selling guns is just not worth it and I’m pleased that the Judge agreed with me.”
NRSC senior advisor Matt Whitlock snapped at Herring, “Absurd. They require masks, distancing (it’s a giant space) and limited capacity like any store. And it’s not just guns, you’re shutting down dozens of small businesses that operate rely on this to feed their families. Would you be doing this if it weren’t a gun show?”
