On April 16 2007 thirty three people were killed on the campus of Virginia Tech. The NY Times called this the “deadliest shooting rampage in American history”. The killer had a long history of mental illness.
On Jan 18 2008 the Virginia General Assembly House Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee killed the “gun show loophole” (HB 745 and HB 592) that would have prevented private vendors from selling weapons at gun shows without background checks.
What is wrong here?
