    Repeal of Va. 'one gun a month' law not dead yet
    March 7, 2010 - 1:59pm

    RICHMOND, Va. - Gun control advocates thought they had defeated an
    attempt to repeal Virginia's "one gun a month" law. But there will be
    one more attempt this week to do away with it.
    Democrats shipped off the proposed repeal to a Senate subcommittee
    which killed it along with several other gun bills March 4.

    Prince William Delegate Scott Lingamfelter says they'll make one last
    attempt to revive the repeal in another committee Monday.

    "The level to which we are willing in the House to trust the decisions
    of law abiding citizens, it seems to me that the Senate has a somewhat
    contrary view."

    If that does not happen, Lingamfelter predicts lawmakers will face
    some political blowback.

    "People who oppose the second amendment and don't trust the people and
    the better judgment of law abiding citizens, will pay a political
    price I do think that."

    The "one gun a month" law has been on the books for 17 years.

    There were 21 guns bills introduced in Va. this year.

    The antis got the high ground, I don't think we can take this hill this year. I'd love to be proven wrong.

    Perhaps the House is looking to gain some leverage by using a Senate bill that is about something else entirely, such as the budget, transportationor taxes? Could a deal such as "If you don't give our bill (OGAM) fair play, we'll tank yours.", be in the offing? Speaker Howell might just have the clout to make that happen.

    Perhaps someone with a CHP should purchase abrace ofpistols so Howell and Saslaw could settle this? (CHP required for multi-gun purchase.)
    A law-abiding citizen should be able to carry his personal protection firearm anywhere that an armed criminal might go.

    The Speaker does not like guns. He does not want to give us any more than he has too.

    Perhaps not, but I don't see this as giving us something, I see it as an effort to get the Senate to play fair (as defined by the House).
