    Just for clarification: If you have a CHP in VA, the one purchase per month goes away. There is no limit once you have CHP in hand. And, we are a CHP shall issue state.

    This initiative is really 1) about the waste of taxes by duplicating requirements and 2) about the slow down in getting approvals -- whether intentionally (as an effort to reduce sales) or as the results of funding cut to / funding short-falls for the positions to get the job done in a reasonable time.

    Additional personal point:

    There is a process for having the ATF issue you a special ID number to identify you from whoever the convicted felon is with a similar name. However, the VSP's Web site does not have a field for this information.

    As my name is the same (other than our MI) as the birth-name of Muhammed Dawood (one of the first people charged and subsequently convicted under the United States' Military Commissions Act of 2006), no-fly list and unnecessary delays are very real -- even when the real terrorist was locked-up.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
