The dominoes keep falling. Virginia has dropped its one gun a month law, as seen here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/virginia-politics/post/handgun-ban-lifted-in-virginia/2012/02/03/gIQAfHYNuQ_blog.html?wpisrc=nl_buzz
Back when they passed it, one of my graduates in Virginia called me to share his misery. He asked, Mas, how would YOU feel if they passed a one-gun-a-month law in the free state where YOU live?!?
I replied, Hell, Id find the money somehow
He was not amused.
I dont blame him. He was right and I was wrong. Arbitrary restrictions on productive members of society are nothing to joke about.
I dont care how many firearms responsible, law abiding citizens own. I care that evil people dont have access to them. And, more important, I care that evil people be put away where they dont have access to INNOCENT VICTIMS and that their potential victims have the wherewithal to fight back against the evil, and prevail.
This good news from The Old Dominion is the latest in a compelling history of victories for gun owners civil rights over recent years. At the time they enacted one gun a month in Virginia, there were several states where there was no provision at law for a law-abiding citizen to carry a concealed handgun in public to protect themselves and their loved ones. Now, in 2012, just one of those remains: Illinois, which came surprisingly close to getting shall-issue concealed carry last year, and hasnt given up yet.
Were winning, state by state, but we cant become complacent. The Presidential election looms
and it aint lookin good for gun owners.

The idiotic ‘one gun per month’ rule used to save us money.... Until I bought a carry permit(permit holders were exempt).
I don’t buy as many guns now, because I about have all that I would want. There’s still a couple out there on ‘my list’.
This morning I noticed an “advertisement” on my Facebook page about 1 gun a month.
I clicked and it took me to the VARGL facebook page.
(Virginians for “Responsible” Gun Laws).
The hyperbole was over the top. They of course, support the 1 gun a month law, because if we don’t have it, it will lead to “gun trafficking” and “shootouts on the capitol steps”
“I dont care how many firearms responsible, law abiding citizens own. I care that evil people dont have access to them.

I don’t mind evil people having guns. Just liberalize the gun laws a little more so that when an evil individual commits an evil act with one that evil person can be terminated with extreme prejudice by the good, law-abiding people.
Go ahead Holder, make our day.
NJ, take notice.
