So, New York, you don't like one gun per month?

The civilian disarmament lobby and its media puppets seem to have settled on Virginia as a favorite target of their hysterical finger pointing. With the new law in Virginia that will subject Bloomberg's private detectives to prosecution if they attempt any more "straw purchases," and with the "Bloomberg Gun Giveaway" (organized by the Virginia Citizens' Defense League, in order to help finance the legal defense of some Virginia gun dealers who have already fallen victim to Bloomberg's "sting operations"), the New York media has become especially fussy with Virginia. I wrote about a particularly contemptible column in the New York Daily News back in April.

Now, Douglas Turner, of the Buffalo News, gets in the act with his own opinion piece, titled "Virginia's gun laws are killing New Yorkers". I suppose that the thugs who actually shoot people in New York are simply unfortunate victims of Virginia laws that somehow compel them, against their will, to shoot people in New York (I wonder which Virginia laws require that).

Turner claims that Virginia is responsible for much of the violence in New York, because many guns used by New York street thugs were bought in Virginia by gun traffickers, who then sold them in New York. But wait a second--I thought one gun per month gun rationing laws (such as Virginia's) were supposed to be the be all and end all solution to gun trafficking. This law is so restrictive that (as far as I have been able to determine) only two other states (Maryland and California) have implemented it (South Carolina also had such a law on the books at one time, but has since repealed it). That's right--even New York itself does not subject its citizens to that particular restriction.

Well, you heard the man, Virginia--change your gun laws. No more restricting people to exercising their Constitutionally guaranteed fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms to only once per month.

How 'bout a deal with NYC? Virginia adopts one gun a month, NYC adopts "shall issue" concealed carry. Then everybody will be happy!

Well, Virginia already has one gun per month legislation, so I guess it's NYC's turn.
