Democrats have a long and storied history of arguing that the average gun owner is irresponsible. Why else would we supposedly need laws telling us to lock up our guns despite our personal situations?
They also have a history of projecting, such as how gun control candidates can turn right around and allegedly commit murder. With that in mind, it shouldn’t be shocking that a candidate for governor in Texas, a former sheriff, has lost her department issued firearm.
A gun used by Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez when she was Dallas County sheriff has not been returned, Sheriff’s Department records show.
Valdez was supplied with the Beretta 9mm pistol in 2011 when a gun of the same model she owned “sustained a malfunction,” according to a sheriff’s department report obtained by The Dallas Morning News.
“It is likely that this weapon could have been stolen or misplaced during Sheriff Valdez’s moving transition,” the report stated.
A police report had to be generated because the weapon could be in the hands of a criminal or used to commit a crime.
Raul Reyna, spokesman for the sheriff’s department, told The News Monday in an email: “Former Sheriff Valdez has been approached about the missing weapon and is working with the Sheriff’s Department to locate the missing firearm.”
Thankfully, Texas Governor Greg Abbott will easily win re-election
