While I understand that the issue of gun control is more complex for many people than simply declaring guns to be bad and limiting their sale and possession, I simply do not understand how any rational, thinking person exercising a minimal amount of judgment could fail to have the common sense to pass laws that would help prevent another Virginia Tech, or keep guns out of the hands of criminals, while at the same time imposing only a relatively minor recordkeeping hassle on legitimate collectors.
Oh, that explains it. This concerns Bob McDonnell, Republican candidate for governor:
Creigh got a comrpomise on closing this loophole out of committee this year, but that was as far as it got. Still, it was a step forward, although that is cold comfort to the potential victims of the politicians like Bob McDonnell who, against all reason and decency, block common sense laws to protect us because they are prisoners of an extremist ideology.
