Thumbs up Virginia might change handgun law

Currently, Virginia has a law that limits handgun purchases to 1 a month.

Only 1 handgun a month? Virginia lawmakers see no point in limit - latimes.com

The good news is, the state is looking at repealing that law to allow citizens to buy as many handguns as they wish.

I think in Virginia there is not a problem with buying multiple guns but I have seen first hand why it should be a law in other states like Mexican Boarder States. I was at a gun show in Arizona and saw a couple of young Hispanic women buying several AR-15 clones with cash. I later asked the guy selling them, and he said these are people who are legal US citizens legally buying guns, but they take them accross the boarder to resell them or were buying them for someone across the boarder. He said he wishes it could be stopped but if he did not sell them, someone else would because these people do not worry about the price.

Hello? Then the problem is with border security not the gun laws ..Why make it tougher for the folks who are law abiding? if these hispanics are running guns then arrest them ...Oh wait a minute Holder said its ok to let em walk ...

I do not think its the Boarder Patrols problem, they do allot just trying to keep illegals and drugs from coming into our country, let alone being worried about whats leaving . Im all for buying as many guns as you please in whatever time period, but there are loop holes that get exploited by Gun Runners that the ATF should be looking into.

It IS the BORDER Patrol's problem, along with the BATFE's. There is no need to legislate US Citizens further... what these "straw purchasers" are doing is already illegal. Enforcement of existing laws would solve the problem... and that is what I.C.E., BATFE, and BORDER Patrol are tasked with.

BTW, please define "boarder" for me, unless you meant it in piratical terms, in which case, I got it.

No matter, it is still no excuse for further legislating honest Americans.
