Virginia - About Time

Good News for us gun loving folks. Oh poor liberals will piss in their pants about this. Anyone have some xtra diapers?

Legislation to Repeal One-Gun-a-Month Signed into Law by Governor Bob McDonnell

Fairfax, Va.Governor Bob McDonnell has signed House Bill 940 into law. This legislation repeals Virginia's prohibition of purchasing more than one handgun per month.

"Gun rationing schemes are archaic and ineffective. Like every gun control law, this law only burdened law-abiding citizens," said Chris W. Cox, executive director for NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. "Governor McDonnell and the Virginia General Assembly should be commended for removing this law and for working to place the full burden of Virginia's criminal justice laws on the criminals."

Five states enacted such gun rationing laws in the past but the first two to do so - South Carolina and Virginia - were also the first to repeal them. South Carolina enacted its law in 1975 and repealed it in 2004. Today, only three states - California, Maryland and New Jersey - have these burdensome statutes.

Sponsored by Delegate Scott Lingamfelter (R-31), House Bill 940 passed in the Virginia Senate by a 21 to 19 vote and in the House of Delegates by a 66 to 32 vote. The companion legislation, Senate Bill 323, was sponsored by Senator Bill Carrico (R-40).

I'll Take Some Gun with That Java

Well, the Anti Gun nuts are at it again...this time trying to intimidate Starbucks from not allowing customers who can legally carry guns from coming to Starbucks armed.

Starbucks has no policy prohibiting the legal carry of firearms in their stores. Thanks Starbucks for having some common sense.

Here are the details of the story.

Starbucks pulled into gun debate

The company says business is normal Tuesday even as groups promise action over its gun policies.

By Kim Peterson 7 hours ago
Starbucks (SBUX -0.26%) has become the unlikely center of a Valentine's Day debate over U.S. gun laws.

A group that aims to reduce gun violence says it is boycotting the coffee giant Tuesday because Starbucks has not stopped customers from bringing guns into stores when the law allows it. Starbucks has the legal right to ban guns, the National Gun Victim's Action Council says. The group has sent an open letter to Starbucks with its complaints.

That boycott didn't sit well with some gun owners, and some said they would visit Starbucks Tuesday to show their support. The gun owners have even created their own "I love guns and coffee" shirts, with an image of a gun-totin' Starbucks mermaid mascot to boot.

Starbucks seems to be trying to stay out of the issue. The company, which complies with local gun-control laws, said that all of its U.S. stores are open Tuesday and business is normal.

"Our long-standing approach to this issue remains unchanged and we abide by the laws that permit open carry in 43 U.S. states," the company said in a statement. "Where these laws don't exist, openly carrying weapons in our stores is prohibited."

Investors were unfazed by the gun debate. Starbucks shares were essentially flat Tuesday, closing at $49.12.

For those of you Anti Gunners out there.... Next time you go into Starbucks, please ask which of us patrons are carrying our guns today - you might find the response you get interesting.
