Mother of Woman Killed in Charlottesville Believes Democrat Gun Grabbers are Going Too Far

Published

on

The mother of Heather Heyer, the Virginia woman killed at the Charlottesville rally in 2017, is a gun owner and believes some of the proposed gun control measures in the Virginia General Assembly might be pushing the limits of rational legislation.

Susan Bro sent a message to gun rights activists considering violence at a gun rights rally at the Virginia Capitol in Richmond: “We don’t need your help.”

“I grew up with guns,” Bro said to CNN on Monday before the protestors rallied around the capitol. “I believe in common sense gun measures, but not extreme measures.”

Democrats scored big in the 2019 elections and won total control of the Virginia government. For them, such a victory gives them a mandate to introduce legislation such as handgun purchasing limits, universal background checks, and “red flag” gun confiscation orders.

Other gun control proposals include “assault weapons” bans, however, some moderate Democrats have expressed concerns about how far some of their radical colleagues want to go with gun control.

Bro stated that she thinks some of the gun control agenda items are “a bit extreme,” but noted that it had some good proposals. She believes that it is important that the debate be conducted in a calm and non-violent manner.

Authorities originally feared violent confrontations in the days leading up to the Richmond rally, which prompted Governor Ralph Northam to declare a state of emergency,

Bro encouraged potential troublemakers to stay away from Richmond

“If you are there to actually speak with representatives, to have your voice heard, to have calm conversations about what’s happening, by all means be there,” Bro declared. “But understand that it may be dangerous today because there are foolish people who want to stir up more hate.”

Bro now heads up the Heather Heyer Foundation, which runs a scholarship program commemorating the young young civil rights activist who “dedicated her life to promoting equal rights for all people.”

It’s good to see some voices of moderation chime in these discussions. What is generally heard among most gun control proponents are radical calls for gun control overreach and even bans on commonly-held weapons such as the AR-15.

Nikki Haley is Raising MAJOR CASH to Position Herself for a Potential 2024 Run

Published

on

On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, Nikki Haley is headlining a fundraiser for Bill Hagerty, the favored successor to retiring Tennessee Republican Senator Lamar Alexander.

This move is fueling speculation about Haley’s potential presidential run in the 2024 elections.

The former South Carolina governor and President Donald Trump’s first ambassador to the United Nations is yet again putting herself in the spotlight as part of a broader plan to prepare herself for 2024.

Tennessee is a solid red state and the former ambassador to Japan, Haggerty, should be expected to win.

The Hagerty campaign held a drawing that offered two grassroots supporters tickets to the fundraiser for the opportunity to meet Haley.

“Team Hagerty is excited to have Ambassador Nikki Haley with us in Tennessee next week, and we are so grateful she stands with us in our fight to protect the conservative values of Tennesseans,” campaign manager Michael Sullivan announced in a statement.

Hagerty, recently received an endorsement from Trump, and is expected to coast to victory in November.

Haley did not support Trump at the beginning of his 2016 campaign, and instead endorsed Florida Senator Marco Rubio during the Republican primary.

After Trump’s election, he appointed Haley as U.N. ambassador. Haley has generally put on a pro-Trump act since leaving her U.N. position. It is up for debate if her pro-Trump rhetoric is genuine in nature.

Following her departure from the Trump administration, Haley started Stand For America. The political nonprofit group serves the dual purpose of keeping Haley in the public eye and adding fuel to her speculated 2024 run.

Haley serves on the Board of Boeing and maintains conventional neoconservative views on foreign policy.

 

Her winning in 2024 would likely bring back Bush-era neocon foreign policy.
