We MUST Regulate Those Dangerous Ammo Caches!
From the just-opened "As I was Saying" file comes this gem - from the "Thus Always to Tyrants" Commonwealth of Virginia, no less:
Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine said Tuesday he is hopeful the General Assembly will overcome its affection for firearms and adopt changes to the commonwealth’s gun and ammunition laws in response to the April 16 murders at Virginia Tech...
In general, Kaine said, he is troubled that Virginia law allows any individual to stockpile ammunition with no way for authorities to monitor the cache. Seung-Hui Cho, the Virginia Tech gunman, began his rampage with 377 rounds of ammunition, according to police.
And yes - I know that such a law is likely DOA in Virginia.
But don't think these folks aren't serious, or that we won't see such legislation in other jurisdictions.
Sic semper tyrannis, indeed.
