VA: Making it Easy for Criminals to Get Guns

Gun Crime Study: 10 States Sell Half Of Imported Guns Used In Crimes

WASHINGTON — Nearly half of the guns that crossed state lines and were used in crimes in 2009 were sold in just 10 states, according to a report being released Monday by a mayors' group.

Those states accounted for nearly 21,000 guns connected to crimes in other states, said the survey by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, an association of more than 500 mayors led by New York's Michael Bloomberg and Boston's Thomas Menino.........Forty-nine percent of those guns were sold in Georgia, Florida, Virginia, Texas, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, California or Arizona.

Why did the last two Democratic Governors with control in the state Senate allow this to go on ?

Because of all the republican retards in this State. As if a Governor just by himself could change that.
