The Washington Post asked Democratic and Republican candidates in Virginia’s three competitive congressional districts — the 2nd, 7th and 10th — to participate in a survey about how they believed the nation should respond to the mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, Tex., and to explain their positions on various gun proposals in Congress. The results are provided here as a resource to voters. The survey is attached to an article about the role gun control and gun rights are likely to play in the midterm election.

Democratic Reps. Elaine Luria, Abigail Spanberger and Jennifer Wexton participated. Their prospective opponents did not participate. The congresswomen’s responses, lightly edited for style and clarity, are provided in full.
