    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.

    Arrow Gun control does not work and never will!!!

    Voted YES!

    Criminals don't have any limit. Like any "Gun Control" legislation it is designed to control people who obey the gun control laws i.e. law-abiding citizens.

    Gun control laws can only be effective when ALL criminals obey the law. Until we have no criminals, gun control laws or any other law for that matter are meaningless.

    We don't have a "gun problem" we have a judicial system problem. A "revolving door" judicial system ensures that criminals feel there is no consequence for their criminal actions and they continue to commit crimes. As far as I'm concerned, if a criminal is released into our community after being convicted of a crime and then is released and commits any other crimes (which tend to be progressively more violent), the judicial system, parole board etc. are complicit in those crimes.

    Absolutely NOT!!!

    NO!!! They should absolutely NOT repeal the one handgun a month law.

    Two reasons:

    My wife believes it is the law that I have to buy one handgun every month, the ammunition for it and the safe to store it in and so on.

    The other is my local shops would get cleaned out regularly and what would I buy then???

    In all seriousness though. There was an interview published with one of our local geniuses and she said it was the CHP holders that were trafficking guns, and that there shouldn't be an exemption to the 1 a month law for them, BTW had that for years, and definitely not for regular people.

    Actually, while no one is counting when you fill out the form you are swearing an oath that you have not received a handgun "from any source" within the last 30 days. So should anyone know otherwise and you are caught it is a criminal offense. I may not have the wording exactly correct, but VA is a little different in that regard (wording that is).

    BTW I see the Brady Campaign got 100% turnout nationwide on this poll. All 45 of them voted twice.
