    During the House session today, Delegate Lingamfelter was talking about his HB 49, which repeals the one-gun-a-month law. In his explanation of the bill, he stated that there are currently 214,323 CHP holders in Virginia.

    Thought that was interesting.

    I wonder how many Virginians hold only out-of-state permits!

    The VSP have not published their 2009 Facts and Figures report yet. The latest available on the Internet that I could find is 2008. All of the reports back to 2000 are available here.

    THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT
    OF STATE POLICE
    ANNUAL REPORT
    2008 FACTS AND FIGURES
    SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE

    Concealed Handgun Permits
    Since July 1, 1995, 407,792 concealed handgun permits have been issued as
    authorized by Section 18.2-308, Code of Virginia; 55,864 were issued in 2008
    (34.7% increase) by Virginia Circuit Courts. During 2008, 724 nonresident
    concealed handgun permits were issued by the State Police, which is a 44%
    increase in the volume of nonresident permits issued in 2007.
    Pursuant to statute, the State Police enters the permit holder’s name and
    description in the Virginia Criminal Information Network (VCIN) so that the
    permit's existence and current status will be made known to law-enforcement
    personnel accessing the Network for investigative purposes. As of December
    31, 2008, there were 172,132 active concealed handgun permits issued by
    Virginia circuit courts maintained in VCIN.

    No, and he also didn't mention one of the very best PRO points to repealing the one-gun-a-month bill, which is that for our military folks, one-gun-a-month often results in one-gun-a-year or even less, if they are deployed.

    I kept waiting for him to pull that out in response to Moronissey, but he never did. Listening to that guy whine makes my blood pressure go up. I would donate to his opponent's campaign fund.

    That is a drop in the bucket compared to the 2008 census figure of over 7.5 million residents.

    UN-Believable. My only remaining question is, why isn't he working at the White House?

    Morrissey is a street fighter at best. You might also say that he is a good car crash. That people will turn their head just to see what is happening. I believe he was the only one on the ballot.
