    Apparently the Charlottesville City Council wants to be part of Maryland

    "In the wake of the Orlando massacre, the largest slaughter of Americans by a lone gunman, City Council passed 4-0 a resolution demanding state and federal legislators enact legislation to require comprehensive background checks and ban assault weapons. The resolution also asked the General Assembly to allow Charlottesville to pass its own weapons controls, requests previously made in 2013 and 2015."

    Business as usual - elections matter.

    PS - pick a candidate that has a real chance to win and change things for the best.

    Grapeshot,

    Are you talking about the local elections in Charlottesville or the Commonwealth elections that will be held in November 2017?

    So C'ville wants to attract predators, recidivists, criminals and keep LAC from defending themselves. Nice. Stupid.
