Virginia Congressional Candidate Under Investigation After Sawing off AR-15
Think Before You Saw Off an AR-15
Maybe Democrats should check the local gun laws before they proceed to record a video or have a presentation in which they brandish a weapon or in this case modify a gun by literally sawing off the barrel.
According to The Hill,
A Virginia Beach schoolteacher running for Congress who posted an online video sawing apart an AR-15 rifle is now under investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to ABC 13 News.
While Democrats like like Karen Mallard (D) want to take a stand against gun violence by making a spectacle out of illegaly modifying a firearm she stated she wanted to “take a personal stand for gun safety”.
If individuals like Karen Mallard want take a personal stance on any issue they should be well versed on the laws and regulations surrounding their actions. When they do not comply with said laws they should be held to the same standards as the average citizen.

Since she did more than shorten the barrel, she also cut the feedback gas tube, she effectively turned it into a single shot rifle. Any judge would see this as an amateurish attempt to destroy the weapon. Remember the barrel shortening statute was created to eliminate the “sawed-off” shotgun.
