    Virginia Attorney General Sticks it to Bloomberg

    From the latest VCDL Alert

    http://www2.vcdl.org/webapps/vcdl/va...?RECID=1571490

    Just in time for next Thursday's "Bloomberg Gun GiveAway," here is a
    letter from Attorney General Bob McDonnell to New York City Mayor
    Michael Bloomber, telling the Mayor not to run any more unauthorized
    stings in Virginia:

    COMMONWEALTH of VIRGINIA

    Office of the Attorney General
    The Honorable Michael Bloomberg
    Mayor, City of New York

    New York, NY 10007

    Robert F. McDonnell
    Attorney General

    RE: Unauthorized Undercover Firearm Transactions in the Commonwealth
    of Virginia

    Dear Mayor Bloomberg:

    I write you regarding Chapter 509 of the 2007 Virginia Acts of
    Assembly, introduced at my request, addressing "simulated straw
    purchases" of firearms in the Commonwealth. A copy of the new law is
    enclosed herein for your reference. The intent of this legislation is
    to prevent unauthorized activity by non-law enforcement personnel to
    conduct otherwise illegal firearms purchases. The recent activities
    by agents of the City of New York in Virginia brought this issue to
    my attention.

    As you know, the U.S. Department of Justice recently wrote to you
    that such activity is counterproductive to legitimate law enforcement
    efforts to police illegal firearm trafficking, and has potential
    legal liabilities. Representatives of your Office have apparently
    suggested publicly that they may continue such simulated firearm
    transactions in Virginia perhaps with a view towards further
    litigation.

    The new legislation passed this year at my insistence and signed by
    Governor Kaine, makes clear that such non-law enforcement activities
    related to undercover illegal firearm purchases will be punishable as
    a felony in Virginia. While I understand that you are attempting to
    take steps that you believe may enhance the public safety of the
    citizens of New York City, such laws are Virginia's duty to enforce,
    and our outstanding state police take that duty seriously. Virginia
    police and prosecutors now have the tools necessary to stop such
    unwarranted firearms purchase activity by unauthorized outside
    agents, and will faithfully enforce the law when violations are
    discovered.

    This new Virginia law strikes the proper balance between ensuring
    effective law enforcement and protecting the rights of law abiding
    firearms dealers and those of Virginia citizens under the Second
    Amendment to the United States Constitution. If in the future you
    have specific concerns about criminal justice matters in the
    Commonwealth, please contact me, the Governor, or the proper
    law-enforcement agency responsible for investigating and prosecuting
    such conduct. We will be pleased to address any legitimate public
    safety concerns that you might raise.

    Thanks for your future cooperation.
    Robert F. McDonnell
    RFM/pdw

    Take that, Mikey!

    they should lock up bloomberg's "agents" in Virginia and that would put a stop on their stunts. Maybe they can charge bloomberg with some criminal charge along with it since he was the brainchild of this stunt.
