HMMMM?? I don't live in Virginia and am not knowledgeable on this governor to say he is stupid and the people being stupid for voting him in. I might agree with him 99% of the time, but disagree on him on this issue. He might be counselled by faulty council or just doing what most politicians are good at; saying what people want to hear in the aftermath of a tragedy. They may be just as misinformed as he is about gun control. You can "credit" the news media with that!!
The majority of our country elected Bill Clinton TWICE and he was extremely liberal, but not stupid!! And the people were not stupid either, they just were voting their wallet instead of their common sense. There have many people who voted for a person in one election and when he ran for reelection, they "unelected" him after his failures! That has happened several times over the years. Do you remember a fellow named Carter, who used to be President? Or the first Bush, as well. People are not stupid, but they can be "fickle"! Especially, when it comes to the wallet!!
