Avoiding Questions on Gun Violence

Avoiding Questions on Gun Violence

To the Editor:

Regardless of whatever official reason the Republican Party provides for the last-minute cancellation of the Comstock-Murphy debate in the 34th District on Oct. 8, it appeared that Comstock panicked at the sight of a handful of protestors—my McLean friends and neighbors—holding signs that questioned Delegate Comstock’s voting record on gun violence. It sure looked like she wanted to avoid explaining why she voted against universal background checks and voted to allow guns in bars.
