If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand
Good for VA... Glad to see that the bloodbath was avoided.
When I got the original report from my pal , David Codrea, I read the story and was not surprised. This has been the pattern of late, in Michigan, Texas, Florida and now Virginia; where CCW hasn't created the mass mayhem that the prohibitionists predicted.
Sooo, I did a little homework and put together an Examiner column on it.
I think I'll do a quick update and add a link to this thread. I'll have to hook up with Van Cleave for a story in Gun Week... This stuff just kills 'em over at the Brady Campaign.

Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
