Anti-gun State Senator Sees Dim Hope for More Gun Control

In a Washington Post article discussing the upcoming session of the General Assembly, State Senator Patricia Ticer (D-Alexandria) was quoted saying the following when discussing bills related to the issues raised by the Virginia Tech Review Panel Final Report:

"There may be some wording about the mentally ill, but it's not going to be a deep and real remedy," she said. "Those of us who've been in Richmond long enough are realistic about the opportunity for getting any of those gun bills through. Which is zero."

While it is good news that anti-gun forces doubt they will be successful, gun owners should contact their legislators often about any gun related legislation introduced and make sure her prophesy becomes reality.
