So I guess Virginia is well on its way to scrapping one-gun-a-month.
he vote on Senate Bill 323, sponsored by Sen. Charles W. Carrico Sr., R-Grayson, was 8-6, with Sen. John S. Edwards, D-Roanoke, voting for passage with seven Republicans. Sen. Thomas K. Norment, Jr., R-James City, who was not present at the time of the vote, was recorded as abstaining. The vote came during a marathon five-hour meeting in which lawmakers took up a series of gun bills.
The repeal measure has strong support in the Republican-dominated House of Delegates, and Gov. Bob McDonnell has indicated he is inclined to sign the bill.
Awesome. Still my jaw dropped when I read this:
“The only group that this law currently prohibits is gun traffickers,” said gun-control advocate Andrew Goddard, father of Virginia Tech shooting survivor Colin Goddard. “Getting rid of the only law we have on the books … is not going to make that problem go away.”
Josh Horwitz of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence said the concern was not the purchaser of a couple of handguns during a month, but the “huge, bulk, multiple sales” of guns.
Have you ever bought more than one handgun inside of a month? I sure have. That makes you a “Gun Trafficker” because Virginia’s stupid handgun law would make you a Criminal, and if it only effects gun traffickers. Mr. Goddard is the type of person only anti-gunners would want to associate with.
Also note the shaky ground Josh Horwitz is on pointing out that if you buy two or three guns inside of a month you really aren’t the problem they’re talking about…but you should still be charged with a crime.
BTW when have we heard Mr. Horwitz or Mr. Goddard speak out against Fast and Furious where our government was working directly with the Mexican Drug Cartels selling bulk purchases of firearms to known criminals using US Tax dollars?
Yeah, I’m so happy to see your horrible laws being trashed!
