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.

New Mexico Will Be Newest State to Enact Unconstitutional ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation
The 2nd Amendment is under attack like never before.
The state of New Mexico will be the next state to enact red flag laws that will strip due process rights from gun owners and confiscate their weapons based on an edict from a judge.
The New Mexico state house approved a red flag bill by a 39-31 vote last week. Having previously been passed in the state senate by a 22-20 margin earlier this month, the legislation will be placed on the desk of Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who is a massive proponent of red flag laws and expected to enthusiastically sign the bill into law.
“We have an obligation to every single New Mexican, every single family, every single child that we do everything in our power that can provide just that additional layer of safety and public support,” Lujan Grisham said about her support of red flag laws.
The legislation was not passed unanimously by all Democrats in the state house, as legislators Harry Garcia of Grants, Raymundo Lara of Chamberino, Willie Madrid of Chaparral, Rudy Martinez of Bayard, Patricio Ruiloba of Albuquerque, Joseph Sanchez of Alcalde and Candie Sweetser of Deming joined Republicans in opposing the bill.
New Mexico will be the 18th state, along with Washington D.C., to pass this unconstitutional measure that eviscerates multiple amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Counties are passing resolutions to urge Gov. Lujan Grisham not to sign the bill into law.
“Senate Bill 5 and House Bill 7 make criminals of innocent citizens and deprive them of due process of law by making it a criminal offense for gun-owners living with a person made subject to a Red Flag order to not secure their guns from that person, even if the gun owner had no knowledge of the Red Flag order or had no control over another person’s actions,” a resolution passed in Lincoln County states.
In addition to Lincoln County, the counties of Otero and Torrence have passed resolutions condemning red flag laws. Doña Ana County passed a resolution in favor of the anti-constitutional measures.
Big League Politics has highlighted some of the worst abuses stemming from red flag laws that have occurred throughout the country, including a military veteran who lost his weapons due to a case of mistaken identity in Florida; a doctor snitching on a patient who was suing him so his guns would be confiscated in New Jersey; an Iraq War veteran who lost his guns after protesting the governor while wearing a MAGA hat in Oregon; and a man who lost his life when police came to confiscate his guns in Maryland.
Sadly, it will not be long before these kind of heinous abuses come to the state of New Mexico. Lujan Grisham is expected to sign the legislation into law in the upcoming days.
