Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) was calling for new gun control laws on Wednesday, even before the man who killed a reporter and cameraman on live television was in custody. Those calls for gun control were later echoed by the grieving father and boyfriend of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, as well as President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and others.
But Dana Loesch, the author of “Hands off My Gun” and a staunch Second Amendment supporter, said her life was once saved by a gun. “I don’t want that right taken from me,” she told Fox New’s Megyn Kelly Wednesday night.
“We don’t have a gun problem. We have a criminal problem,” Loesch said. “We have a society that thinks it’s completely permissible to shirk responsibility. We have people who have no problem with what Planned Parenthood does in terms of fetal parts harvesting. We don’t teach a respect for life.
