Perhaps his honor the Gov. had better look at closing gun show and private sales loop-holes. Virginia is the state causing most of the illegal gun problems with our unbelievably easy ways to buy firearms.
And as concerned as he is about other peoples health care (vaginal probes for women)why is he destroying the state mental facilities and the mental health care system in general right when they are needed the most? Should there be a federal investigation on what is going on at one facility? Putting the criminally insane and violent in a facility which was used primarily to house the elderly is dumb and dangerous. When one of them breaks out of those tissue paper walls and harms the community, is he going to blame non gun carrying citizens? This stuff just won't fly anymore.

"Studies show that a gun in a family's home is 12 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO RESULT IN THE DEATH OF HOUSEHOLD MEMBER than of an intruder.
"It also increases the chance of suicide.
"...the facts...dispel the ILLUSION THAT GUNS MAKE YOU SAFER."
