Virginia Democrats Push for Gun Control at General Assembly

A list of bills on the VSSA web site shows that the usual suspects are at work again at the Virginia General Assembly.  Today, a group of Democrats outlined their agenda which was covered by the Associated Press.  The legislators in attendance said they are hopeful they can enact new restrictions they say are only targeting criminals and the mentally ill.  Don't bet on it.
The proposals, outlined Wednesday at the Capitol, would require background checks for all commercial gun purchases and ban gun ownership for five years for individuals convicted of stalking or violent sex crimes.
The proposals are modeled after recommendations made on December 2nd at a gun control consortium presentation at UVA.  It's the same old proposals repackaged to look like they are new.
