Virginia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe discussed his gun control views at a governor's race debate in McLean, Virginia on Wednesday. He was reminded by a moderator he supported universal background checks, limiting the size of gun magazine clips, and returning to a one gun a month rule in the Commonwealth. McAuliffe was asked if he changed his mind on his suport of the Assault Weapons Ban. "I haven't changed my mind. It's a very pertinent question for tonight. Obviously after the tragedy we just had at the Navy Yards--the tragedy we had in Virginia at Virginia Tech, Aurora, Newtown, Connecticut. As a father and as a husband. I can speak for everybody in this audience," McAuliffe said.
