Everytown Spent Record $2.5 Million to Flip Virginia Red to Blue

Everytown posted this image on their Facebook page celebrating their victory in “the NRA’s home state.”

Democrats in Virginia have a clear path to passing a slate of anti-gun legislation, thanks in large part to Everytown for Gun Safety’s $2.5 million investment in 22 competitive races.

The results of yesterday’s election gave Democrats majorities in both the House and the Senate, and Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam has indicated a willingness to sign whatever gun control bills the legislature cooks up.

“Tonight, the ground has shifted in Virginia government. The voters have spoken, and they have elected landmark Democratic majorities in both the Senate and the House of Delegates,” Northam said in a statement. “[Voters] want us to finally pass commonsense gun safety legislation, so no one has to fear being hurt or killed while at school, at work, or at their place of worship. I look forward to working with our new Democratic majority to make these priorities a reality. Together, we will build a stronger, more inclusive, and more just Commonwealth.”

In a fundraising email obtained by GunsAmerica, Everytown for Gun Safety claims to have been the largest outside investor in the state’s elections. According to CNN, the gun-control group outspent the National Rifle Association 8 to 1 in the state.

The Bloomberg-funded group spent $1.3 million in digital and direct mail ads highlighting Virginia Republican candidate’s opposition to gun control, $538,000 in direct contributions to Democratic candidates, and $270,000 in district by district polling and battleground message testing.

Everytown leaders see their strategy as proof that the U.S. Congress and the White House can be flipped blue in 2020.

“The winning strategy pressure-tested what’s to come in 2020: Voters will cast their ballots for gun safety champions, with Everytown and Moms Demand Action ready to replicate the success in Virginia by electing gun sense majorities up and down the ballot,” the organization said in the email.

“Gun safety will be one of the defining issues of 2020,” John Feinblatt, president of Everytown, reiterated to CNN.

In Virginia, Democrats have grand plans for implementing a wide-ranging gun control scheme that will turn the state’s relatively pro-gun policies upside down.

In June Gov. Northam called for a special legislative session to consider a universal background check bill, an “assault weapons” ban, a suppressor ban, a “red flag” law, and a one-gun-a-month law. Republicans promptly ended the session less than two hours after it began without discussing any of Northam’s proposals.

“It is shameful and disappointing that Republicans in the General Assembly refuse to do their jobs, and take immediate action to save lives. I expected better of them. Virginians expect better of them,” Gov. Northam said in a statement at the time.

Now, with complete control of Virginia’s government, Northam and his anti-gun colleagues are free to pass virtually all of their gun control proposals.

“Getting rid of bump stocks, high volume magazines, red flag laws. These are common-sense pieces of legislation,” Northam told CNN today.” “I will introduce those again in January. And I’m convinced, with the majority now in the House and the Senate, they’ll become law and because of that, Virginia will be safer.”

A similar situation played out in New York earlier this year. Just months after securing a majority in the New York state Senate, Democrats passed six sweeping anti-gun measures that were promptly signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

With 75 percent of registered Virginia voters naming gun control as a top concern prior to the election, Democrats will no doubt be motivated to follow New York’s lead.

    “Voters] want us to finally pass commonsense gun safety legislation, so no one has to fear being hurt or killed while at school, at work, or at their place of worship”.
    So, once they pass this unconstitutional legislation, we will no longer have to fear being killed? Is that what they are actually selling to their supporters, this total utopian world where no one will ever have to worry about being murdered? I am shocked that there are some out there that can actually swallow this pill and get behind these traitors! I thought the Democratic left were smarter than the average Joe, how do they fail to comprehend the most simple of logic-the fact that MURDER is and has always been against the law, it is the highest of crimes with the most severe of punishments. And criminals STILL continue to break that law, so they think even more gun legislation is the solution? The party, however, is not ignorant or unintelligent. They know they are drafting a false sense of security, especially to young inexperienced voters, to gather steam for their own agenda. And this agenda includes a total diasarmanent of the American people. And it is spreading throughout the country like a cancer. If we the people do not stand up and put a stop to this, we will end up like NY, CA, NJ, Chicago etc. All states with the most stringent of gun regulation, which has been solidly proven to be totally useless in stopping violent crime.
    People, if we care about restoring our rights and stopping this relentless march against our Constitutionally-protected freedoms, then we better start getting out there to vote, march/protest, contact our elected officials, create viral campaigns, etc.. Their side is doing it, and doing it quite effectively, we have to do better..

  • James November 9, 2019, 9:42 pm

    Forgive them Father for they know not what they do. They will watch as their children, wives, sisters, brothers and parents fall victim to the countless criminals, that will undoubtedly still obtain”illegal” firearms reign now that good upstanding citizens, left defenseless, are bound by the legislation that they so readily passed. So much for the founding fathers hard work that, made this the greatest nation on earth, stand for so little today. The second amendment was there for good reason so that “we the people” could defend ourselves against evil and tyranny of any form. Wish you luck!

    Good luck with your bought government of Virginia. As it was stated they are willing to pass any gun law introduced. That means you will not have any guns or the 2nd Amendment. Not a smart move but you wanted it so good luck your going to need it.

      Soros money flooded these areas. Do not abandon your fellow patriots, lest they abandon you in times of need. They did not vote for these clowns. I voted in my area, but the democrats pushed very hard to get their folks out and vote, vote , vote. Republicans barely spent a dime in comparison.

Now communism has reared its ulgy head again to destroy our freedoms. Do not let them take over our freedoms this time either. They want our country for their own. Please share this

  • II GUN November 8, 2019, 12:49 pm

    After reading a lot of the rebuttals I tired of the same dialog. Politicians, Dems, gun grabbers, Republican pussy’s, media control etc.. Doesn’t matter what you have to say the left is relentless until they get what they want. They will spend millions and millions more to accomplish what will ultimately show everyone once again that gun control Not the Solution and we lose more and more of our constitutional rights!
    VA will be compared to and will be added to the list of countries that have proven to the world that gun control is not the answer. We’ve all heard it time after time, criminals don’t care about gun control! The statistics from this point forward revolving around crime and guns in VA will be highly documented and the leftists will put their own spin on it. It’s a losing battle because you cannot make sense to the senseless. Time to pull up your big boy panties, join the fight and be heard or do nothing and watch it go it away!

  • Big John November 8, 2019, 10:45 am

    WOW…no wonder we’re losing all over the map, after reading all the comments most Posters don’t see the real problem. It’s not the money spent Stupid (Trump proved that in the Primary and the General election). The reason Republicans are loosing is for the most part they are an uninspiring, spineless and feckless lot, therefore some conservative voters are not bothering to go to the polls for them.

    Republicans play it safe and never accomplish much if it involves any risk. To put it simply, they act like pussies. Take the first two years of the current Presidency when Repubs. controlled the White House and both houses of Congress, they couldn’t even get rid of Obama care. Look at how the majority of them are acting with the current witch hunt against the President. They’re sucking their thumbs instead of vocally fighting back (sans the Freedom Caucus who seem to be the only Republicand in either house with any balls).

    Why does our President resonate with voters and bring people to the polls…he keeps his promises and he’s not a pussy. Do I agree with everything he does, says or tweets? NO. But unless he takes a drastic turn from his current course I will low crawl over broken glass to get to the polls to vote for him in 2020. I will do that for only two reasons. He keeps his promises and he’s not a pussy.

    Perhaps if individuals running for office on the Republican ticket could aquire these two simple traits they’d inspire more voters to come out for them on election day!

    It’s not really funny when I say “it’s funny” that in the past six months I’ve seen a huge increase in what can only be described as Liberal trolls making comments on here. I’m not saying they don’t have the right to an opinion, I’m just saying I believe all conservative web sites are under a coordinated attack.

    Not sure what to do about it since we actual conservatives are all for freedom of speech whereas we know the left is only in favor of that right as it applies to their POV and their POV only. When any comment other than a liberal POV is attacked as not PC then we don’t have freedom of speech.

    So in the name of Liberal free speech… There are only two genders. A woman can’t complain that she’s being objectified if she walks around in skin tight yoga pants showing a camel toe when men look at her. Don’t like it, don’t wear it. Hillery is a crook, Bill is a crook, Obama is a crook. The entire democrat party in DC is anti-American, anti-constitution and Epstein didn’t kill himself. I have more but I need coffee.

  • john in DFW November 8, 2019, 9:43 am

    Take a step back and look at the bigger picture.. The media controls the public opinion. look on youtube and see videos of what people on the street are saying … the problem is people are gullible. If they see it on the news every day like CNN , they start to believe it , just like they now believe there are 26 genders … most media outlets are far left , it’s not a coincidence! it’s planning … and when you get indoctrinated every single day that if you take firearms away there will no longer be bad people , they start to believe it , once they are turned , give them drugs to keep them asking for more . end of story! Leftism is cancer, it’s terminal, and we are already in stage 4 . it’s just a matter of time … they will win! no doubt about it. all you have to do is import a few million more illegals , in the right places , give them drivers license so they can vote and they will tip the scale . We have lost ! it’s already over ! when things like the green new deal stays alive , and health care for all , including any illegal that can cross the border… it’s over !!!!!! Common sense has left the building ! Tax large companies 90% ??? that’s killing the company … no one can survive this way. so when all the rich leave the us and all the big corporations tank … who’s going to pay your salaries , your health care etc… it’s not ! it’s logically impossible ! yet they vote and chant for it !!!!! MSM has to be fixed , restore public opinion to reality and common sense … it’s the only way to change the opinion of the masses, and ultimately the votes.

  • December November 8, 2019, 9:38 am

    You do realize that people vote on issuses other than firearms?
    Perhaps the message in this case is to gigure out what people are looking for besides guns.
    The tyrant man child in the white house is so dirty that he is making Hilary look like Snow White.
    Vote for a different Republican in the primaries.
    Another 4 years will leave such a bad taste everything will be blue and SCOTUS will be packed with new judges and watch Heller get diluted or overturned.

They are taking your right to say No, because, face it, they keep passing laws that are restricting to the point that they take away your means of living free and feeding your family, you won’t have anyway to say enough is enough. You will be just another peasant with a pitchfork. A serve.

    • Scotty Gunn November 8, 2019, 4:54 pm

      They know what they are doing. It is a talking point for their ignorant voting public. Easy bill to pass, as the Federal one is already in place, and effortless to enforce, as the Federal one has already done that. Then brag that they banned it making the world safer.

  • NoVA_cop November 8, 2019, 8:51 am

    I am a police officer in northern VA. I work long hours to protect the people of the Commonwealth. I left Connecticut in 2015 to escape anti gun madness post Sandy Hook, i figured VA would always stay pro 2A. This election was a disaster in so many more ways than most folk understand, than transcends regular party politics. Many of the sherrifs and commonwealths attorneys (lead prosecutor equivalent to DA) also were flipped liberal. In Fairfax Ray Morrogh who was an oldschool blue dog Democrat (who prosecuted many high profile cases over the years and got the death penalty for the DC Sniper) unexpectedly lost the primary to Steve Descano, who has zero experience as a county prosecutor. Descano won nov 5th over an experienced pro-police democrat-running-as-independant Jon Fahey. Why? Because George Soros pumped a ton of out of state money into Descanos campaign and bought the prosecutors office. Descano’s campaign promises include no longer prosecuting marijuana crimes, no death penalty, ending cash bail, not prosecuting lesser property crimes. Most of the experienced prosecutors i know are looking for other work. They might as well install an actual revolving door on the jail. This is a huge disservice to the safety and security of the people of virginia, and will only makes my job harder. I’m absolutely beside myself. Experienced, competent candidates also lost in Loudon and Prince Williams counties and were replaced with soft on crime reform-minded activists also funded by $1 million Soros PAC money. I am not optimistic about the future of Virginia.

    • Rattlerjake November 8, 2019, 9:16 am

      And yet as a police officer YOU enforce many other unconstitutional/illegal laws that are in place. Suck it up cupcake, law enforcement has created a lot of this crap by supporting the state instead of the people, mainly because of being indoctrinated by government, but also your absolute ignorance of the Constitution and SCOTUS decisions.

      • NoVA_cop November 8, 2019, 10:17 am

        i serve and protect the people not the politicians. If Gov Northam wants your guns he can come and get them himself. if you want better laws vote for better people. I literally carry a copy of the constitution in my pocket over my heart. I am not your enemy. Your anger is better directed elsewhere.

        • skipNclair November 8, 2019, 12:20 pm

          While I am the first to voice an opinion on bad actions by police, I will also be the first to defend those I think might be what should be expected of them, I believe there are good and bad in everything except a few things I will not mention. If you are what you say, and you carry the laws of God with you and a copy of the Constitution by your heart, then I am with you and hope again you are with us. This divide and conquer is why we are in the position we are today, and I will not be part of it. I wish and hope that others would understand not all cops are sellouts and that when the battle begins and it will soon, that it would be a pleasure to have the good ones by my side, and theirs also and I hope they and you would feel the same about me.

      And it will not get any better. God told us what is coming and it is not going to be pretty. Our nation is “mystery or new babylon”, the statue of liberty is the “whore of babylon”. Our nation is responsible for the proliferation of everything immoral – greed, adultery, vanity, gluttony, corruption, etc. End of times prophesy says “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness to light and light to darkness, who replace bitter with sweet and sweet with bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.…”. It also says “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” We are on the downhill slide to Christs return, but before that happens evil will succeed.

Sorry about the doom and gloom and no I’m not going anywhere but with a dem majority and KKK Northam in office the first two things on his agenda are gun control and making it easier for illegals to vote. If that happens forget it. Virginia hasn’t been a red state in years. We’ve had one republican senator for a term but now have 2 dems and a dem governor.

  • Freddie Joe Clark November 8, 2019, 8:05 am

    Here is a post I made months before the 2018 election, it applies even more now. Please take this seriously….We MUST, as responsible gun owners, organize as well as the opposition, and create movements to get out the vote. If we take this anti-gun movement too lightly and allow the opposition to take over Congress in 2018 and the White House in 2020, the 2nd amendment will be in serious trouble. Talk to your friends and neighbors letting them know how important their vote is in the upcoming elections. Post on facebook how important this issue is. If you think that can’t happen just look at the revelations about the FBI no longer being an unbiased organization. Look at all of the major city Police Departments supporting stricter gun laws or outright bans. Look at Obama setting a precedent by ordering the killing of American citizens overseas without due process. Look at all of the leftist liberal judges creating law from the bench. Look at all of the anti-gun activists touting Australia as a model for the US. Australian law required all gun owners to turn in their weapons or become criminals, subject to fine and imprisonment. This well may literally become the fight of our lives if we do not take this movement seriously and take actions with our vote!

  • Kevin Jarvis November 8, 2019, 6:26 am

    I moved from Maryland to Virginia 12 years ago because of this so I’ll be moving out of Virginia in 2020 we need our country back

    • Hardtimez November 8, 2019, 8:16 am

      Then you should have voted for another republican presidential candidate. Trump is the worst and will bring out all dems and independents. Elections have consequences

      • Rattlerjake November 8, 2019, 11:07 am

        Really? All you asshat leftists do is “CLAIM” that Trump is “the worst”, but give us an example of it. We don’t want to hear opinion or accusations, give us something substantial that is proven fact. It is so laughable, yet sickening, how the leftists in congress have made claim after claim that Trump has broken laws, lied, and whatever else they can imagine, yet after three years of “investigations” and millions of dollars wasted, they haven’t come up with one single piece of evidence to prove anything they have claimed. AND YOU’RE NO DIFFERENT!!!! he saddest part is that there is a mountain of proof against Hil-LIAR-y, Buttcrack Obuttboy, Slick Willie, Piglosi, Warren, Omar, AOC, and any number of other democraps, yet congress refuses to do their job and charge them because all they can do is “dream” about taking down Trump.

        President Trump 2020 MAGA!!!

  • Roughwater November 8, 2019, 6:25 am

    Folks with their eyes open have voted. Like it or not it’s the american way. It’s not big money that caused the shift, its the death of so many by guns and the antics of the man at the top. You still have your guns and you probably always will. Vote, pray, Love.

    • tim November 8, 2019, 7:42 am

      If that were true automobiles would be outlawed and Home Depot would be closed.

      • Hardtimez November 8, 2019, 8:21 am

        I want my firearms as much as my car.but this is apples and oranges

        • Firegoat November 8, 2019, 9:51 am

          How is it apples and oranges?
          It’s all about saving lives right?
          People kill people with guns, and people kill people with cars.
          Are you going to say I need my car to get to work?
          And some one else will say “your car is polluting our planet at an alarming rate so now you have to use public transportation. “
          Does any of this sound familiar? Now remember,
          “ if we can just save one life”.
          Isn’t that what Obama and the left said?

        • Rattlerjake November 8, 2019, 11:15 am

          Yeah, THEY ARE BOTH FRUIT! Cars and guns are both weapons in the wrong hands, but idiots like you insist that it is an inanimate object that kills, and ignore that it is an individual with evil, deranged ideology! The only thing different between a car and a gun is that I can protect myself against a scumbag with a gun, but it is difficult to impossible to protect yourself from a nutcase in a speeding car.

    • EternalWorth November 8, 2019, 8:23 am

      Yeah, Roughwater, you’re missing the foundational piece, as are most people in the West. We all know you are doing it purposefully. Suppressing the Truth will not improve anything. We all know full well that a gun is simply a tool. It is the person using the gun, who chooses it for good or bad. But how do you define “good” and “bad”? You define them by the One who created us & who created their definitions. He has already told us we will only do “bad” when left to ourselves…just like we crap in the streets & sell our own children for a buck. You say, “Vote, pray, Love”, but who are you voting for, why do you vote that way, who/what are you praying to, & what is “Love”? If you don’t define “good” & “evil” via God…yes, the one true God you encounter via the Bible…if you don’t pray to him, & if you don’t know “love” as He defines it, you are suppressing Truth. The death of so many by guns is via the rebellion against God of each person that pulled the triggers & killed those people. The person kills others, the gun does not kill others. We will kill each other with our bare hands & whatever else is available, if the will & intent is there. How many humans were killed & even “mass murdered” before guns were available? Multitudes. You know this. Please join your Creator & spread Truth, not lies. We are each responsible for how we handle King Jesus. Your prayers are vapor & useless if you are not born again, as no one is listening to them.

      • December November 8, 2019, 9:26 am

        And that kind of sh!t drivel is why a lot of younger people voted.
        OK Boomer?

        • Rattlerjake November 8, 2019, 11:20 am

          And, December, that very reply explains why YOU are part of the problem and NOT part of the solution, and never will be. You’ve sold your soul to evil, and for what? Because you don’t like God’s rules? You’re the equivalent of a spoiled child that only wants things his own way and could care less about anyone else.

    • Rattlerjake November 8, 2019, 9:10 am

      Funny, I still haven’t ever seen a “gun” walking down the street or entering a school looking to kill people. Only fools like you think it is guns, when it is evil people and their lack of respect of human life. And it is fools like you that make it easier for the evil to pervade by restricting the law abiding citizens of their God-given right to protect themselves. From this point on, all of the deaths by “guns” are on the heads of leftists like you, no one else! Virginia has shown that they have zero concern for the lives of it’s citizens, only for pushing their anti-American socialist agenda.

  • Ronnie Pigg November 8, 2019, 6:10 am

    Goetz, you missed the point. The Republicans are no longer in control in Ky. It has swep across the rest of the world what makes you think they will stop. And I mean total Gun Control! I pray I’m wrong. I pray it does not come to that. Because according to the blogs I read the takers fear the pro gun people more. Especially in the Appalachian Mountainous Area. That was a quote from the military. According to US estimates there are over 10 million weapons in private hands. That’s a lot to taking.

    • Nightshifter999 November 8, 2019, 8:13 am

      The only major race the Democrats won in Kentucky was the governors race. That was because Governor Bevin talked bad about the states teachers. Bevin lost by less than 6,000 votes after calling the teachers Thugs and more. I hope Beahear does a better job than his father did while he was the governor here. I’d say if he doesn’t; he will be gone in 4yrs. I didn’t vote for Bevin 4yrs ago; but I did this time. I’ve been a registered Democrat for over 35 yrs and I voted straight ticket Republican this time. That was because of the democrats presidential candidates. I know there are good democratic candidates out there; just not as good as the republicans this time around. I’ll stay a Democrat; just like I did in 2016 when I voted against Clinton in the general elections where I voted independent. Beshear should have won in a landslide here and barely squeaked by!

  • Dr Motown November 8, 2019, 5:22 am

    Northern VA is infested with DC liberals: gubbmint employees, lobbyists, politicians, media, think-tank pundits, etc. If the rest of the state caves in, then VA will go the way of New York

    • Joe November 8, 2019, 8:02 am

      This is more proof that many or most elections at all levels are bought and paid for by special interest groups like this. They have little or nothing to do with informed, educated choices, as they should be.
      This is also more proof that so called “democracy” is nothing more than mob rule, and the mob only needs to have 51% of uninformed voters to rule over and control the other 49%.

    • Hardtimez November 8, 2019, 8:24 am

      Your support of trump is the reason this happened. Don’t think it was only dems who caused this. Republicans flipped

  • art November 8, 2019, 5:13 am

    Absolute nonsense..theirs nothing commom or sensable about the ridiculouse illussion of any of the same non reality of people are safer by making law abididing people crimminals …withe these ridiculouse gun grabs,based on 100 percent nonfact data.

And continue to move until im out of places to live….these insane monsters are a cancer on the humane race…

    We too think that it is disappointing that GOP legislators in Va. refuse to do their jobs and block these leftist interlopers who have been recruited by forces far outside of Va.
