    RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Pro-gun state lawmakers in Virginia say they may ignore families of Virginia Tech shooting victims if they seek stricter gun control laws.

    Several state legislators have said any attempt to call for heightened firearm restrictions in Virginia will fall on deaf ears when linked to the campus shootings, The (Norfolk) Virginian-Pilot reported Sunday.

    State Sen. Kenneth Stolle said if the campus shooting victims' family members attempt to target the sale of firearms at gun shows without background checks, state lawmakers will ask them to explain the alleged link between the two.

    The families want the loophole eliminated, alleging its existence could lead to another incident similar to last April's deadly shooting spree.

    Gov. Timothy M. Kaine is supporting those families, saying the loophole could result in weapons falling into the hands of potentially dangerous people.

    "You (either) want people who are mentally adjudicated to be dangerous to have guns or you don't," the Democratic politician said. "If you don't want them to, then you ought to close that gun show loophole."

    Nice to see a politician with our best interests in mind, but I'm not really putting much faith into him, unless I can see him do what he say's he is going to do of course.
