According to VA-02 Democratic candidate for Congress, Karen Mallard, who “grew up in Wise County surrounded by guns – my family had guns my whole life…A while back, my husband bought this AR-15. I wasn’t happy about, and after last week, I told him I wanted this gun out of my house. He agreed with me. And then we saw Emma Gonzalez’s speech and we realized we didn’t want this gun in anybody else’s house either. So today, we’re going to destroy it.” Which she then proceeds to do. Badass in a good way!
P.S. Karen Mallard is going to continue the conversation about gun violence in a Facebook Live Town Hall Meeting on Thursday from 8:00-8:30PM.
“As a mother & 30 year educator, I don’t want there to be any confusion as to whose side I’m on during this national debate surrounding #GunViolence. I stand with the students of #Parkland & Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America for common sense #GunReform!”
