Del. Scott Lingamfelter, R-Woodbridge, is proposing to do away with the Gov. Doug Wilder-era policy that limits a person to buying a single gun a month, arguing the rule “has run its course.”
“I don’t think it’s been a very effective policy,” Lingamfelter said. “It hasn’t done much to prevent crime; it has done a lot to affect commerce.”
All the changes look good though, but Virginia will be the second state to repeal gun rationing because it doesn’t work (the other is South Carolina). Before the one-gun-a-month law, gun control advocates bitched about Virginia being a prime source of crime guns. After one-gun-a-month, they are still bitching. It doesn’t work. It’s time for the law to go.
