Virginia Senate Kills Gun Data Privacy Bill

Posted on the 17 February 2012 by Mikeb302000 reports
A state Senate committee killed legislation Wednesday that would put concealed handgun permit records off-limits to the public at local courthouses.
House Bill 25 would have prohibited circuit court clerks from disclosing information contained on a concealed handgun permit application or in an order approving a concealed handgun permit. The Senate Courts of Justice Committee killed the measure on an 8-7 vote Wednesday. The House of Delegates passed the measure last week by a vote of 81-17.
Republican Sen. Thomas Norment of James City County, the committee chairman, voted with the seven Democrats on the committee to kill the bill.
What's going on in the world of gun rights these days? First New Hampshire was a disappointment, Iowa may be next, and now Virginia.
Even under the dark clouds of Heller and McDonald, with a president who's done nothing but cooperate with them, the gun-rights folks are floundering.
What's your opinion? Do you think the country may be coming to its senses as far as gun control goes?
