More on Virginia's One Gun a Month Repeal

The law worked, which is why it is unfathomable that the state is on the verge of throwing it out. Both chambers of the legislature approved eliminating the one-gun-a-month limit last week. The only thing standing in the way of the bill becoming law is the signature of Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R), who voted for the limit as a state delegate but has since reversed course.
You see how it works? Spineless politicians, who claim to believe whatever will work for them at the polls, allow good laws to be weakened. Just like their supporters, the gun-rights activists, they couldn't care less about what's right. The politician is concerned with getting elected. The gun-rights folks are concerned with the convenience provided by lax gun laws.
