Jim Gilmore on Gun Control

Senate challenger 2008; previously Republican Governor (VA)


Supporter of 2nd Amendment rights; Americans can be trusted

Q: How is your track record on second amendment rights?

A: I am a supporter of Second Amendment rights, and all of the other rights under the Bill of Rights. The right to keep and bear arms is a reflection that we as Americans can be trusted to be free.

More gun convictions means less violent crime

In its first full year of operation, Virginia Exile has put 95 violent, gun law violators in prison for at least five years. Those convictions, out of 111 cases, produced an 86% conviction rate. Virginia Exile’s success has attracted wide attention, from other states, major cities, and in Congress, which approved a national Exile law based on our model. Thanks to this new approach to gun violence in Virginia, violent crime is down and our communities are safer.
