Former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe said voting should be “easier” than purchasing a firearm.
McAuliffe, an anti-gun advocate who was Virginia's governor from 2014 to 2018, is seeking a second term in the executive mansion. Virginia law prevents a governor from serving consecutive four-year terms.
“Call me crazy, but I think it should be easier to vote than it should be to buy a gun," he wrote on Twitter.
Call me crazy, but I think it should be easier to vote than it should be to buy a gun.

McAuliffe won the Democratic nomination with over 60% of the vote in June and will face Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin in the November general election.
Several people criticized his tweet, saying Virginia law already makes voting easier than purchasing a firearm.
It absolutely is.

Please let me know when they’ll mail a gun directly to me because I’d love that

Good news, Terry: It is. It is!

Clearly, you've never actually bought a gun.

If you make it to a debate stage you should be asked about this nonsensical tweet. Does a voter have to pass a background check before voting? Moron.

When was the last time you saw a background check to vote, crazy?
