More on the Gun Flow from Virginia to New Jersey

We've heard about this case before. Now we get some more info from Mr. Beasley.
The leader of a gunrunning crew responsible for putting at least 50 weapons into the hands of city gangsters -- including the gun that killed 13-year-old Tamrah Leonard at a city block party in 2009 -- pleaded guilty yesterday.
Beasley admitted before Superior Court Judge Pedro Jimenez that he purchased guns in his childhood state of Virginia and sold them to drug dealers and gang members in Trenton.

He was certainly an enterprising young man.  In the report last year it said he liked to deal in revolvers becuase they didn't leave spent cartridges all over the place.  That's smart.
"Seventy-five percent of the crime guns in New Jersey come from out of state, and Virginia is the second biggest source state," state Director of Criminal Justice Stephen J. Taylor said. "Trayle Beasley is precisely the type of defendant we are seeking to take off the street through our efforts to fight illicit gun trafficking."
Don't you just love it when they talk percentages like that? I do.
What's your opinion? Do you think the gun laws are too lax in Virginia? I do.
