Virginia's Democratic Primary is five days away, and the three-way race for the party's governor nomination is tight.
Gun rights advocates don't typically engage in democratic politics. However, Northern Virginia-based "opencarry.org" is encouraging its members, republican, independent, and libertarian, to go vote in the Democratic primary and cast their vote for Brian Moran.
During his time in the House of Delegates, the website says Moran had what they call a pro-gun record. That includes votes to allow concealed handguns in school parking lots and to preempt all local gun control laws.
They say that "pretty good" record is far superior to Terry McAuliffe. They say his governorship would be a disaster for gun owners, adding Moran is also preferable to the third man in the race, State Senator Creigh Deeds.
Deeds actually got the endorsement of the National Rifle Association four years ago when he ran against Bob McDonnell for Attorney General.
