We need to make sure our Senators AND Delegates understand that they MUST fix the current situation with firearm background checks. Either take the State Police out of the loop and use the FREE federal NICS system OR fund the State Police check and require that such funding must only be used to hire people to do the background checks. AND the State Police computer system must have redundancy so that it does NOT go down for more than a few minutes a YEAR, just like Visa, MasterCard, and American Express computers.

FWIIW for non-Virginia residents, the Commonwealth's computer system has gone down repeatedly recently. Even LEO making stops were unable to use it in one or more of the outages.
