Former senator Sturtevant changes tack when it comes to red flag laws. (John Cole/The Virginia Mercury)
From The Virginia Mercury: “When Glen Sturtevant stood to speak to diehard gun rights supporters gathered at an American Legion post last week, he knew he had some explaining to do.
A former state senator with a moderate profile who is trying to make a political comeback in a more conservative district, Sturtevant opened his remarks by telling the crowd he had cast some votes he ‘regretted.’ Supporting a proposed red flag law in 2019, he said later in Thursday’s candidate forum hosted by the pro-gun Virginia Citizens Defense League, was ‘a mistake.'”
