Businesswoman Mary Margaret Kastelberg is running to be elected as delegate in Virginia’s 73rd House district on an anti-gun platform, and she released a statement in favor of gun control on social media this week.
She is backed by anti-Trump state delegate Nick Freitas, who lost an establishment-backed run for the U.S. Senate nomination last year. His committee has donated $5,000 to the campaign of this anti-gun wannabe lawmaker just a few weeks ago.
As seen on VPAP.gov, Virginia’s campaign finance portal:
“As a mother of two students at Virginia Tech, I am concerned about gun violence just like any other mother,” Kastelberg wrote. “I know this problem is complex and that we cannot prevent every tragedy, but we must take action and try.”
Kastelberg recommends a whole host of unconstitutional infringements against the 2nd Amendment, and will pursue these initiatives if she is elected as a lawmaker.
“This includes closing the gun control loophole. I believe every person selling a gun at a gun show should be required to conduct a background check,” Kastelberg wrote, repeating a falsehood regularly parroted by enemies of gun rights.
“I believe we should impose limits on high capacity magazines. Those who take part in hunting or marksmanship know firsthand that you do not need a 100-round magazine for recreation,” she continued.
“I support so-called “Red Flag” laws that allow law enforcement to temporarily remove guns from any individual who is deemed to be a threat to themselves or others. We can give law enforcement the tools they need to try to prevent these tragedies and protect due process rights of gun owners,” Kastelberg wrote in a clear endorsement of gun confiscation.
According to campaign finance reports, Kastelberg received a $5,000 donation from the Friends of Nick Freitas committee on Aug. 13. Freitas is helping fund this enemy of the 2nd Amendment along with a host of big money PACs, special interest groups, and the arm of the Virginia establishment GOP – the Republican State Leadership Committee.
Freitas, who is currently running a write-in campaign for reelection as state delegate, has regularly advertised himself as a liberty Republican who opposes infringements on the 2nd Amendment throughout his political career.
While he was running his failed candidacy for the U.S. Senate last year, Freitas issued speech in defense of gun rights on the House floor that went viral:
“If you’re wondering the other reason that we can’t have an honest debate over this one, is quite frankly because I don’t think any of us on this side of the aisle believe you when you say that’s all you want to do,” Freitas said in his speech.
“It will be bump stocks and be background checks then we’ll be different kind of background checks at register the guns, then after that it’ll be we need to ban assault weapons … what’s an assault weapon? Something that looks scary,” he continued.
“Then after that it’ll be semi-automatic rifles, after that it’ll be semi-automatic handguns, then it will be revolvers, shotguns…Because when the policies fail to produce the results you are promising to your constituents, you’ll be back with more reasons why we have to infringe on 2nd Amendment rights,” Freitas added.
While Freitas may talk the talk, he ultimately ended up supporting a gun grabber when it came time to put his money where his mouth is. Kastelberg will face off against Democrat Rodney Willett, who is another enemy of the 2nd Amendment, in this year’s general election on Nov. 5.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Conservatives Cannot Afford to be Timid
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
