Spray-painted on Kim E. Adkins’ campaign headquarters last night in Martinsville, Virginia, was a threat which included an image of a target, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence reports on Facebook.
Adkins is running against Virginia state Senator William Stanley Jr. (R-Franklin).
Stanley recently told the Washington Post that he was getting a concealed handgun permit after what he considered to be a threat from Andy Parker, whose daughter was recently gunned down on live television.
Late Tuesday, Parker allegedly sent this message to Stanley on Facebook: “I’m going to be your worst nightmare you little bastard.”
Stanley has received an A rating from the National Rifle Association.
“We are proud firearms owners, but I never felt the need for a concealed-carry permit until now,” Stanley said.
In response, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said state Sen. Bill Stanley should “man up,” after Stanley told police he felt threatened by the message from the father of the slain reporter.
We wonder what Stanley would think of the threat spray painted across the Democratic candidate’s headquarters.
This isn’t the first time Republicans have used targets and ‘lock and load’ references in their campaigns against democratic opponents, but this message takes it to the next level.
Adkins is an advocate for gun sense, against Open Carry, a former Mayor and a Second Amendment supporter.
We can hold the Second Amendment in high regard while at the same time have a reasonable reaction to the gun violence in America.
FON is pro-Second Amendment, anti-NRA and anti-dumbass — the latter two of which are partly responsible for the cowardly threat painted across the democratic candidate’s headquarters.
Be sure to give us some gun sense ‘like’ on Facebook.
