Democrats just ambushed our brave and hardworking police officers. Republican leaders and millions of Americans nationwide are stunned — this is a new low for liberal politicians.
According to state Sen. Bill Stanley of Virginia, he recently “tried to amend the state budget to give all of our men and women of Virginia’s Sheriffs’ Departments a 3% raise for this year,” but Democrats had another plan.
In a dastardly move, the amendment “was defeated, with all Democrats voting ‘no,'” so Bradley “went to get a vote count” and discovered that Democrats defeated it in retaliation against sherrifs.
Why? Because many of Virginia’s sheriffs opposed new gun control laws. “Hey Stanley, you want to know why your sheriffs didn’t get a raise?” asked Minority Leader Saslaw to Bradley.
“Because they came to our committees and said that they weren’t going to enforce our laws,” said Saslaw, according to Bradley’s account. When asked for clarification, Saslaw said “gun control.”
