    Sensible legislation

    Virginia gun laws: What sparked Richmond gun rally tied to neo-Nazis?

    Three bills passed the state Senate on Thursday: A limit to one handgun purchase per month, a requirement for universal background checks on gun sales and a rule allowing localities to ban guns in some public areas.

    1. A limit of one handgun purchase per month

    How does being able to purchase over 12 handguns a month make you safer? Unlimited handgun purchases opens a path to shill purchasers where a legal buyer can buy guns to sell to criminals

    That should be enough even for you.

    2. Universal background checks

    Overwhelmingly supported by most Americans. Why don’t we want to keep gun sales away from criminals?

    /——-/ Limiting a woman to one abortion in her lifetime is sensible legislation. BTW, your one Gun a month limit can easily be expanded to one gun a year, if passed. It’s how Progs operate.

    3. Allow localities to ban guns in some public areas

    What ever happened to local rule? If a locality wants to ban carrying guns in parks and playgrounds, why shouldn’t they?

    Absolutely there is nothing in those laws that any rational person should find objectionable. It is about the public safety. Given comments on this board and others by right-wingers these are people that should not be anywhere near dangerous objects much less guns.
