One Handgun-a-month Passes House

Repeal of one handgun-a-month passed the House by a vote of 61 -37

Delegate Ken Plum got up to speak to the bill, made the tried and true statement that Virginia would once again become the "gun running capital of the nation." He also said it would send the wrong message to companies considering moving to Virginia.

Delegate Marshall stood up to reply to Delegate Plum. He gave a history lesson on why we protected the right in the Constitution.

Delegate Lingamfelter, the sponsor of the bill stood up and spoke for the bill. He said if you look at the merits of the underlying law we are trying to repeal, we have exempted a number of people already. We have technological advances that we did not have 17 years ago that will keep firearms out of the hands of the wrong people.
