In a startling exchange during House Judiciary Committee hearing on banning assault weapons, Dr. RaShall Brackney, Chief of the Charlottesville Police Department, said she supports a ban on essentially all guns.

While answering a question on whether she would support a ban on hunting rifles, she said, "I believe any weapon that can be used to hunt individuals should be banned."

This claim seems to say that Brackney would support banning any and all guns, since, in theory, a criminal could use any type of gun (rifle, handgun or otherwise) to "hunt" another human being.
