Rigell, a second-term congressman from Virginia Beach, reelected with nearly 54 percent of the vote, this year introduced a bipartisan bill to strengthen penalties for straw purchasers — those who knowingly buy guns for people who cannot pass a background check.

A- Rating at NRA and claims he's against a national registry?

I didn't see in this Politico piece about support for a gun bill or what that bill entailed? The libs at Politico are always eager to report Republican disfuntion.

Rigell wants to regulate ‘straw purchases’ of firearms and he was also screaming about how much of a disaster the sequester would be. He likes big government and looks like he wants to pass some form of gun control hence the ire of hardcore gun groups.
