    Here is a 'quiz' from the Pilot about 'guns in Virginia'

    I got 9 out of 10 (would of been 8 of 10 if the wife didn't give me an answer -- she got 8/10)

    Is this the same reporter that went to the Tidewater Dining Out? Can't wait for the artical(s) to come out.

    I got all the parts about the law in Virginia right. I missed the number of guns in Homes nation-wide question.

    I know where they got the information to ask the question about the Virginia Constitution's Right to Bear Arms wording. That's extra Credit!!!

    I got 7 out of 10 right. I missed the year when the word"infringed" was put into the 2nd admendment, how many other states have 30 day waith between handgun purchases, and how many delegates carry. It's a fun little quiz.

    Yep, she's the reporter that has attended our dining outs, gun shows, and lobby day. There is supposed to be a four part article (every Sunday for the next 4 Sundays) - she is also going to be on FM 89.5 tomorrow (Wednesday) at noon.

    Infringed has always been part of Second Amendment of US Constitution. They are talking Virginia Constitution which I believe was completely rewritten around 1974. I thought there were more states with 30 day Handgun rule. However, just by the way worded the questions, I have a feeling the articles are going to be slightly anti-freedom slanted.

    Those are AK47s only if you consider your typical AR15 an M16. They look the same, and operate similarily, but they are NOT the same gun.

    both of myrifles are Romanian AK-47's. I know of several other people who have semi-auto AKM's that are all still AK-47's of various origins. Hell, I know one guy that's got a semi-auto Yugoslavian RPK, it's a lot of fun to shoot, too.

    There used to be 3 others besides VA. The two today are California and Maryland. South Carolina used to have it but doesn't anymore.

    Sickening that I just looked it up, and it turns out that Virginia (and the other 3 states) enacted this stupid law before CA did.

    WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GET RID OF THIS DUMB LAW???

    I got 9 out of 10. I missed the last one by underestimating the number of legislators from Tidewater with a CHP.

    HA! That's the one I got wrong but by overestimating (said 12)! I guess I figured anyone who didn't want you to have a gun would have one themselves..... :^).

    I overestimated for the same reason. Got 8 out of ten anyhow...the other one was regarding the VA constitution.

    I had a brief conversation with the photographer Hyungsoo Lee Kim at the MLK day events, who indicated he was taking pictures for an upcoming series. This must be what he's referring to.

    I got 8 of 10. Missed the question on amendment to Va constitution, and the AK, I assumed they were asking about a full auto AK too.

    Actually I cheated, I got hints on two answers from the forum. Number of other states with 30 days wait and the VA consttution date question. So I would have only got 7 that I actually knew the answer to.

    7 out of 10. Interesting they used AK-47 instead of asking "how old do you have to be to own a rifle or shorgun"

    Actually, I think this series will start this Sunday and run for thefollowing 3 days (not next 3 Sundays). I did listen to the noon broadcast today on FM 89.5 and Joanne did a great job!! She certainly held her own against some very anti people. I'm looking forward to her series....

    If your "AK47" does not have a forged steel receiver, and is select fire with the first position of the fire selection lever as full auto, and the second as semi-auto, then it is not an AK47. It is a look -alike, or a copy of an AKM or AKS.

    I tell people I have a semi-auto AK47, because that is what most people will understand. It is actually a Norinco NHM91 that I have modified (garage gunsmithing) to resemble an AK47. I have a letter from BATFE approving all the mods, in case they pay me a visit

    editI got 8 out of 10. I missed when "RKBA shall not be infringed" wasadded to Virginia constitution, and how many delegates from South Hampton Roads have CHP's
    I forgot all the AK74's, AK101's, AK103's, AK106's, etc. Everybody (or almost everybody) calls them all AK47's.
