House Majority Leader Griffith Calls Recomendation Irrelevant

One day after the release of the Virginia Tech Review Panel findings, the Roanoke Times reported that House Majority Leader and member of the House Militia, Police, and Public Safety Committee, Morgan Griffith (R-Salem), called the panel's recommendation eliminating the non-existent "gun show loophole" irrelevant. Griffith said the recommendation is irrelevant to the Tech shootings because Cho purchased his handguns from licensed retailers. "I have a hard time connecting the two," Griffith said.

Governor Kaine responded that "Should somebody who's mentally ill and dangerous be able to get a gun or not? And if the answer is they shouldn't be, then let's have rules to protect the public and disable those people from having weapons."
