Karen Mallard, the Democrat running running for Congress in Virginia’s 2nd District, became a viral sensation earlier this year when she accidentally made an illegal SBR while trying to destroy her husband’s AR-15.
The anti-gun teacher lost the Democratic primary by a landslide to Elaine Luria, a Navy veteran who picked up more than 62% of the votes. Luria will face fellow Navy veteran U.S. Rep. Scott Taylor, the Republican incumbent, in November of this year.
“Congratulations to Elaine Luria for winning the Democratic Primary tonight,” Mallard wrote in a now deleted Facebook post after Tuesday’s primary. “Good luck in the General Election. I look forward to helping you defeat Taylor in November.”
Mallard humiliated herself in March of this year when she released the anti-gun video below. Mallard said that she doesn’t want “weapons like this” in her home or anyone else’s. After a little political grandstanding, the Congressional candidate took an angle grinder to the rifle. She failed to destroy the weapon, however, and merely cut off the barrel and plastic hand guard.
