    Gov. Timothy M. Kaine yesterday defended a new Virginia gun-rights law, saying it is designed to keep "rogue folks" from making "freelance gun purchases." http://tinyurl.com/2xvvn5

    &

    I want to enforce the laws, the law needs to be enforced, but I don't think you should have out there a bunch of rogue folks," Kaine said. http://tinyurl.com/34mhpl

    The way that Bloomberg is crying lends itself to the old saying..Hit Dog Yelps the Loudest .

    So now he wants to co-operate with the VSP .

    This whole issue is more than just a little serious. I would think that the Department of Justice would have some voice in someone attempting to enforce the law this far out of their legal jurisdiction.

    Of course Bloomberg bases his mission on the most interesting of statistics. Last time I looked citizens in his jurisdiction were prohibited from handgun ownership (without political connections). This of course has all but closed every gun shop in his city.

    So what a surprise that 80% of the guns in his city come from someplace else. He also carefully overlooks that while these weapons may be illegal in his city, many are actually brought there when people move to his city from locations where they were legally acquired and possessed. For some reason they feel the need to protect themselves from one of the highest crime rates in the entire nation. Of course removing these from the count of guns seized would kind of deflate the justification he is using.

    Last time I looked the mayor of a city took an oath to recognize the law. I do not remember any exemption for laws of other jurisdictions. Our guys here in Virginia are doing the right thing, with the exception of failing to file charges against Bloomberg.

    The DOJ should charge him for conspiracy to violate the laws of Virginia, and add to that a RICO charge for running a continuing criminal organization. Under RICO they could confiscate everything he owns. Since he is acting outside his jurisdiction, he would not be protected by any immunity being a mayor might otherwise offer.

    Regards

    Oh yea, When they are done they should throw away the key.

    Maybe Kaine isn't so bad after all. It could be worse (think PRNJ, PRHI, PRNY, etc.

    It probably doesn't hurt that Kaine is a Democrat and Bloomberg is a Republican. For once the party divide could be playing to the advantage of gun owners!
