GOP State Senator Runs Ad Saying She's 'Not Afraid To Shoot' Gun Control Groups Down


GOP State Senator Runs Ad Saying She’s ‘Not Afraid To Shoot’ Gun Control Groups Down


Amanda Chase is facing backlash over the ad, which she said was a mistake.


By Amy Russo

<snip>

The initial ad run by state Sen. Amanda Chase, who represents Chesterfield County, read, “I’m not afraid to shoot down gun groups.

In a statement Friday, Chase called the “ludicrous unauthorized” message a mistake, releasing an edited ad that reads, “I’m not afraid to shoot down any attacks by anti-gun groups, because gun rights are women’s rights.”

“Gun violence prevention advocates and constituents deserve an apology not excuses,” Pohl wrote.

Chase’s first ad has also sparked backlash from the state’s Democratic party, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring and Parkland, Florida, shooting survivor David Hogg, who called out the senator online.

On the same day that @GiffordsCourage endorsed over 40 Virginia Democrats, @AmandaChaseVA released an ad saying she would “shoot down” gun violence prevention groups

Inciting violence like this is beyond dangerous. She needs to delete the adhttps://t.co/x1wEne2zy1

If you’re as disgusted by this as I am, then support our Democratic nominee @pohlforvirginia. She’s been named a “Gun Sense Candidate” by @MomsDemand and she’ll be a voice and a vote for commonsense gun safety measures. Contribute now! https://t.co/vdgFSAC27k https://t.co/8IzTU5PtCF

🚨 VA state senator #AmandaChase just threatened to shoot and kill children that support gun control 🚨

If you threaten to shoot children that simply don’t want to die you shouldn’t be able to own a gun— let alone be an elected official.

The name of the digital agency purportedly involved has not yet been released, though Chase said one of its representatives “admitted fault.” She has vowed to reveal the name of the company if it does not publicly apologize by noon on Monday.

1. Her guns should be taken away.

Surely she is mentally disturbed.

2. There's a lie in the headline.

This is her exact quote.

“I’m not afraid to shoot down any attacks by anti-gun groups, because gun rights are women’s rights.”

Still the wrong thing to say, but it is NOT advocating violence.

3. The point is the verbiage.

Which was clearly intentional. She thinks that she's being cute, but she's just being an ass.

4. Actually the revised version, the first was ""I'm not afraid to shoot down gun groups."...

The revised version is the one her consultants came up with. The one she disputes and threatened to name if they don't apologize by tomorrow.

5. More "subtle" threats of violence.

Sick fucks.

Yeah, I'm really convinced that people who talk like this should own guns.

7. A 'mistake' to say what she actually thinks.
