    Donít come to Virginia looking for a loophole

    Donít come to Virginia looking for a loophole


    http://news.oldva.org/?p=85635

    OVN Exclusive:
    Think thereís a gunshow loophole in Virginia, think again.
    Shortly before Noon today at the Showmasters Gunshow heing held at the RIR Raceway in Henrico County, a man was taken into custody due of the diligence of vendors and individuals selling personal weapons.
    The man whose name is being withheld, is a Veteran from New Jersey, and has emotional problems. He was trying to purchase a gun. Vendors and others he spoke to notified Police that the man was acting strangely and could not prove he was a Virginia Resident.
    No one would sell him a firearm.
    When Police checked, the family of the man had had commitment papers issued in New Jersey and apparently he had fled to the Virginia Show to commit suicide.
    I spoke to the arresting Officer minutes after they took him into custody. He said the man was not very cooperative and not talking much, but it was evident there was a very real problem.
    The message in this is that there is NO GUNSHOW LOOPHOLE here.

    I'm just SURE the mainstream media is going to be all over this story...

    ETA: If the Law Enforcement agency involved in this even were even remotely friendly to the law abiding gun owners, they should put out a press release thanking them for the help in averting this likely suicide and who knows what else.

    This could have been a real PR disaster. For some reason, that fool woman that operates the show, gave a Camera crew from a Texas TV station the run of the place yesterday.

    If the guy had gotten a gun and blown his brains out then, it would have been on the National news in a heartbeat.

    This story should be attached to emails and sent to every anti that says there is a loop hole.
