Virginia ban on private gun sales takes effect

Virginian-PilotFor the first Yuletide ever, a new law makes it illegal for Virginians to sell their personally owned firearms without buyers clearing the kind of background checks that can only be handled by federally licensed dealers.

Gifts — the genuine kind with zero money, goods or services swapped — are exempt.

Otherwise, both parties must enlist a dealer for a criminal history check run through the Virginia State Police, with the state capping the dealer’s service fee at $15.

Will criminals obey the law? Of course not.
Will this solve any crimes? See above.

Gun control activist mom kills her three children in murder-suicide

Washington ExaminerA mother in Texas was found dead alongside her three children on Friday in an apparent triple murder-suicide.

Ashley Auzenne, 39, was known to have been battling depression and anxiety in addition to physical ailments such as arthritis and lupus at the time of her death, which was ruled as a suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Her three children, Parrish, 11, Eleanor, 9, and Lincoln, 7, were also killed by gunshots and their mother is the only suspect. She had just finalized a contentious divorce from their father, Murvin Auzenne Jr.

Auzenne was a vocal advocate for stricter gun control in the United States with multiple social media postings calling for an end to gun violence and Facebook profile pictures that bore the hashtags #Enough and #EndGunViolence.


I've often noticed that gun control activists tend to have problems with self control. Whether it's Bloomberg's Illegal Mayors, or someone saying they would do horrible things themselves if they had a gun, or incidents like the above, one of the primary drivers of gun control appears to be people who don't trust themselves extrapolating that to everyone else.

Houston police chief urges voters to vote for gun control

But he's only the chief. He's appointed by politicians. Has anyone asked the Indians?
