The House of Delegates has approved legislation that would repeal Virginia's one handgun a month law. The vote Wednesday afternoon was 64-32.
Both the House and Senate have now approved the legislation.
Originally passed in 1994, the law was intended to address Virginia's role as a supplier of guns used in violent crimes in other states. On the floor of the House Wednesday, Delegate Patrick Hope, (D) Arlington, said repeal of the law will have serious consequences. He argued the one handgun a month limit does not place an undue burden on gun buyers.
Delegate Scott Lingamfelter, (R) Woodbridge
, said opposition to the repeal of one handgun a month is based on "mythology." He said adequate state and federal checks are currently in place.
Once that bill is signed there will be no justification for the de factdo waiting period [a.k.a the VSP data base check on gun purchases]. :banana:
