Letter: Virginia Kramer, Leesburg

Editor: I was going to vote for Geary Higgins until I saw the news story where he wanted to institute a “guilty until proven innocent” approach concerning folks who fire weapons at targets on their own property (as they have probably been doing for years)  before the residential encroachment took over most of the land around them.

This is a direct violation of our civil rights under the Constitution. We are not guilty until proven innocent, but innocent until proven guilty. I am happy that he is endorsed by the NRA since I am a supporter of the SecondAmendment, but I can’t in good conscience vote for someone who holds the views that he does.

    That’s crazy!

    Geary Higgins get an “A” rating from the NRA. His opponent, John Bell, is campaigning on the promise that he will “stand up to the NRA.”

    In fact, the only “A” ratings John Bell gets are from NARAL and Planned Parenthood.

    So if you truly are concerned about your 2nd Amendment rights, Virginia, and especially if you happen to also be pro-life, you better rethink your decision not to vote for Geary Higgins.

    I share your concerns Ms. Kramer. However, it’s worth noting that every Loudoun democrat candidate, every single one, is firmly committed to the elimination of Due Process protections of Virginians.

    Loudoun democrats are pushing a scheme where by, anyone — jealous co-worker, ex-lover, estranged family member, bitter neighbor who believes you took their parking spot, can file a claim about you, have the sheriff come to your home, remove your personal property, and you get left with the legal bills to clear your name. This isn’t some off comment — this is their platform.

    Is that the Loudoun you want to live in?

    Ms Kramer, after reading your letter about not voting for Geary Higgins, I was reminded of something my dear mother used to say,” Don’t cut off your nose just to spite your face.”
