    Virginia Press Association honors WaPo propaganda piece

    Washington Post gun series wins VPA best-in-show

    No big surprise here, the VPA is one of the annual fighters to keep the "Domestic Violence Victim Locator Loophole" law in place (the "open record" status of CHP application information, including the current address of possible domestic violence victims looking for some self-protection.)

    If the anti-gunners don't go around telling each other they are good, then who would?

    What?

    You mean you can look up people with CHP's and find out where they live ?
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    Yes. You can also go to your local court clerk's office and ask them to give you a print-out of every CHP holder in the jurisdiction. Until sometime in 2008, several newspapers around the state printed monthly lists of "who got a CHP this month".

    I strongly believe that the only reason they stopped was because we were getting some real traction on closing this information to the public. Last year's bill (2010) was headed for passage until it was illegally "killed" in Sasslaw and Marsh's "Special" sub-committee. Every citizen understands how outrageous this is, so the press decided to hide in the corner. They "must" have access to this information so they can discredit any criminal who happens to have held a CHP.

    It is indeed astounding.
