Dan Helmer is running for U.S. Congress in Virginia, and he’s willing to go the extra mile to prove his commitment to ending gun violence. Just how committed is he, you ask? Well, so committed that it looks like he’ll make stuff up in order to score political points:

A weapon of war!

Even scarier? The fact that a guy running on an anti-gun platform appears to have no idea what he’s talking about.

It smells fishy to a lot of people.

Oof.

What else is new?
