With Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Senators Warner and Kaine on hand, the father of Alison Parker, Andy Parker, lit up his Congressman at a gun control rally on Capitol Hill this week. That Congressman would be Bob Goodlatte.
Goodlatte is also the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. What he gets done in that position is anyone’s guess. One thing he doesn’t get done is moving legislation requiring background checks on gun buyers. You see, Republicans talk about mental health (not the number of guns) being an issue but don’t actually plan to do anything about it. Parker pointed out that Goodlatte’s staff attempted to book a meeting with him at the exact time he was to speak at the outdoor rally. Ain’t that cute?
