    Virginia General Assembly: House passes repeal of one handgun a month - wdbj7.com

    House of Delegates passes repeal of one handgun a month law[/h] [h=2]Both House and Senate have now approved the legislation

    Joe Dashiell Reporter 2:13 p.m. EST, February 22, 2012

    RICHMOND, Va.—

    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].

    Will your govener sign it into law? doesn't say. You should be able to purchase what you want. Isn't this a free country. They still run background checks.

    Can't imagine him not signing it.

    But, I never say never when dealing with politics.

    Is he up for election this year? I hope he signs it for you. People are getting tax refunds now, it could be good for retail business.

    This one did not include an "emergency" clause in any of the versions that I have read. Therefore it will take effect July 1st.

    See: LIS > Bill Tracking > HB940 > 2012 session

    and

    The BradyBunch is circulating an email to supporters



    Save Virginia's "One Handgun a Month" Law
    Call Gov. McDonnell and Tell Him to Veto HB 940

    Dear yjuwanna,

    For the last 19 years, Virginia has led the way in curbing illegal gun trafficking with its landmark "One Handgun a Month" law. Now this important anti-trafficking law is in jeopardy and we need your help to save it.

    Please act today!

    Call Gov. McDonnell TODAY at (804) 786-2211
    Tell him: "Veto HB 940. Keep Virginia's 'One Handgun a Month' law."


    In a recent statewide poll, 66% of registered Virginia voters want to keep the "One Handgun a Month" law.

    Please call today and forward this e-mail to your family and friends in Virgina.

    Sincerely,

    s/

    Brian Malte, Director of Mobilization
    Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
    Also included a pic of 18 handguns wit the caption, "Other than gun traffickers, who needs this many handguns at once? Call Gov. McDonnell and urge him to veto HB 940."

    In Virginia a Governor can not serve consecutive terms.

    I will be surprised if he doesn't sign it. In the past he has shown himself to be pro-gun. Of course anything can happen.

    Very nice. I hope Maryland starts to take some steps towards being like our friendly neighbors to the south sometime soon as well...

    OGAM had no bearing on VT tragedy. Yet...

    Va. Tech families to talk with Gov. McDonnell on one-gun-a-month repeal - Virginia Politics - The Washington Post

    Va. Tech families to talk with Gov. McDonnell on one-gun-a-month repeal
    By Laura Vozzella

    Gov. Robert F. McDonnell has agreed to hold a phone conference with families affected by the
    2007 Virginia Tech shooting on Saturday, just days before he is expected to sign legislation repealing the state’s one-per-month limit on handgun purchases. Representatives of the families, who oppose lifting the 19-year-old cap, hand-delivered a request to speak with the Republican governor about the bill.

    SNIP


    Will these folk ever quite trying to milk (including paid positions in Anti orgs) their loss to get special consideration?

    Not that I ever believe the Brady Bunch, but I seriously doubt that 66% of registered Virginia voters support keeping the ban
