Is HD31 Candidate Jones Missing Something?

Candidates have been known to embellish and even go a little over the top in their criticism of their opponents, but in House District 31, one particular candidate has truly taken the problem to a new level.

A.J. Jones, candidate attempting to unseat incumbent Representative Jason Murphey has reportedly been sharing some incredibly inaccurate information regarding the Campus Concealed Carry Bill, allegedly telling people that her "opponent wants to arm students."  Unfortunately, Jones is stretching the truth more than just a bit if this is truly what she is saying.

The Campus Concealed Carry Bill, authored by Murphey, allowed for members of the military to carry on campus as well as faculty if they so chose.  The fact of the matter is that "students" may be eligible to carry a firearm if they meet federal requirements...to be at least 21 years of age and completed an SDA course.

Jones has evidently drank the Kool-Aid of the far left and those who believe our institutions of higher learning to be sacred, the most holy of all ground.  If Jones is, in fact, spreading such hyperbole it shows her lack of qualifications for the State House - and perhaps even her ability to read.
