"I think Virginians deserve effective laws, and one handgun a month has been overtaken by technology and improved background checks," he said. "Criminals don't go into gun stores, stand there in the bright light, hand over their driver's license and stand there and wait for the vendor to see if they have a criminal record."

What the idiots Goddard and Hass seem to forget is that when this law was written, there was no instant background check.

They also seem to forget that there were a number of ways around the law including being a Consealed Weapons Permit holder.

The law was unneeded with the electronics and internet of today.

Goddard and Hass also seem to forget that "when seconds count, the police are only minutes away".

That "No Gun" policy worked real well at Va Tech now didn't it?
