A Virginia state senator has thrown down the gauntlet with Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe in a brewing battle over gun rights -- pushing to defund the governorâs armed bodyguards unless he revokes an order that banned firearms in most state buildings.
"Itâs easy for someone who is surrounded by armed state policemen to tell someone else they can't carry a weapon to protect themselves," Republican state Sen. Charles W. Carrico Sr. told FoxNews.com.
"Itâs just equal treatment, thatâs all Iâm saying."

Sorry, missed the asterisks.
The governor of Kansas (Brownback) makes a daily walk from the statehouse to a church across the street, and back. I’ve walked past him more than once, while he did this. He is all alone - not a bodyguard in sight.
So why does the Governor of Virginia need so much protection?
Brownback’s probably packing a piece. :)
“We are going to remove the rights you have to defend yourself. Thats going to make you safer.”
excerpt from: The Book Of Liberal Idiocy and General Moonbattery
Yeah, and why does Valerie Jarrett deserve 24-7 armed guards?
He is pronably carrying, has a backup too, and believes even the common man has a God given right to defending himself. Unlike fringe lunatic liberals.
Let him eat cake.
He should just do it, and quit talking. I imagine he would get a lot of support in the legislature.
Gotta love that headline. Those mean old Republicans want to take away McAuliffe’s protection over a “dispute.” No, they want to make the governor live up to his alleged principles. If Virginians don’t need guns to defend themselves, then neither does he.
This is NOT the way to handle this A**H*LE!!!We need our politicos protected!How do WE(The People)”Protect”ourselves from them??Challenge their “ABUSE’of”Executive Orders”!!!We can begin at The Top(or Bottom,for that matter),by starting with OBONGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fox is just as leftist as the MSM Enemedia, now.
You have just(inadvertantly?)set Brownback up!”Loose Lips”????
Because it makes his elitist ass feel important.
Not really. Its well known that he makes his unaccompanied trek to church everyday.
Good to see some pushback on Mcawfullofit.
Because he’s a Clinton butt-boy?
Yes it is.
Because he is an arrogant elitist whom assumes he has always pissed someone off with his asinine and tyrannical policies. The left knows they are anti-freedom and anti-liberty and they always intrude into peoples space. McAwful knows he is a jerk and wants his special sorry arse protected.
