In the wake of yet another mass shooting in America, Republican candidates in VA-07 are refusing to answer questions about where they stand on common-sense gun violence prevention.
According to new reporting from InsideNoVA, “Prince William County Supervisor Yesli Vega and state Sen. Bryce Reeves did not return requests for comment on any measures they would take to curb gun violence” and “Derrick Anderson […] did not offer any specific legislation to prevent future shootings.”
After the devastating elementary school shooting in Uvalde just last week, and as the country learns about the continued mass shootings that have followed, the Republican field’s silence on how they would prevent this from happening is cowardly and shameful.
Vega, Reeves, and Anderson must make clear to Virginians: Do they support protecting our children and communities from gun violence, or do they stand with the gun lobby?
“As Americans process the devastation of yet another mass shooting in this country, it is unconscionable that Republican candidates for Congress would refuse to say where they stand on common-sense gun violence prevention measures,” said DCCC spokesperson Monica Robinson. “Yesli Vega, Bryce Reeves, and Derrick Anderson must stop shamefully dodging questions and come clean with Virginia families.”
