    McDonnell targets Virginia background checks for guns

    Gov. Bob McDonnell said if it's legally feasible, he'd support doing away with Virginia's 22-year-old criminal background check program for firearms purchases in favor of a federal system that also screens prospective gun buyers for eligibility to obtain weapons.

    IMHO, YES! It's legally feasible -- IF we repeal the draconian nonsense of only One-Gun-a-Month (on non-CHP holders). IIRC, handgun purchase data accessed by name cannot legally be retrieved from the data in NICS.

    TDO/Vol. Commitment record sharing - already done with NICS

    Foreign born restrictions are red herring -- as Va. law is less restrictive than federal.

    Protective orders - data sharing beyond VCIN would be required to enforce via NICS. [FWIIW, I do believe that current failure of Va. to share the protective order info with NICS creates a loophole allowing the sale of long guns to those subject to protective orders -- if they buy from dealers in other states.]

    In any case, when these bills are being considered, I let folk know -- so that you can join in on the emails, calls, etc to the appropriate Legislators.

    We could see the end to long delays in approval of sales [especially at gun-shows on the weekend] that are created by the State under-funding the SP approval staff.

    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.

    I hate the current system. I am delayed on EVERY gun purchase. The delays have been from 45 minutes to several hours & on two occasions...DAYS!
