    Gun Control is the Crack Cocaine of some Liberals. Governor Kaine tried to go dry so he could be elected Governor "Sportsman for Tim Kaine" but he just couldn't kick the habit and is smoking the pipe again.http://www.examiner.com/a-743269~Kaine_wants_lawmakers_to_change_Va__s_gun_laws.html

    "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. He also said college presidents and police chiefs have told him that allowing students and faculty to carry weapons on campus “would be a disaster.”

    Haven't noted any campus disasters here. Must be like the "blood running in the streets" CCW disasters that were predicted and failed to materialize.

    377 rounds of ammunition is not a stockpile! That's about 7.5(fifty count boxes). I just bought 4 boxes this morning(200rds.) Therefore, I must have a stockpile. And we need more authorities wasting time and tax money monitoring these huge caches? What a joke.

    "He also said college presidents and police chiefs have told him that allowing students and faculty to carry weapons on campus “would be a disaster.” "

    No, not letting them was and still is a disaster. Why don't they ask those who pay tuition and taxes what they want

    "Kaine would not discuss specific changes he would like to see or legislation he thinks would be palatable to the General Assembly. Though Northern Virginia legislators tend to support stricter gun-control bills, lawmakers from more rural and conservative regions routinely defeat such legislation.

    A bill to ban guns in libraries, for example, was quickly killed in a House of Delegates committee this year."


    Tim, Tim, Tim, won't you ever learn? And you want us to think that you really know what's best for us when you prove incapable of learning your lessons? Look what happened when you as mayor tried to spend Richmond tax dollars to send busloads to the Million Mom March - you had to raise private funds.
    And Richmond is liberal Tim, compared to most of the state. Some of your neighbors, friends of mine, think highly of you, but I'm starting to doubt their judgement Tim.

    What office are you running for now?

    Sigh.

    I'm not hoarding ammo, I'm trying to buy enough to get me through retirement on a limited income. Like it's any of Tim's business what I do.

    Timmie's an old school liberal who is going to learn that VA's conservative General Assembly could care less about what he wants.

    Uh...I thought he said he had no tolerance for those that would use the VT crime as a method of furthering their agenda (in response to a question regarding CCW on campus)?

    Any gun owner that has only 377 rounds "stockpiled" should be ashamed. That's barely a third of the minimum for ONE gun. Sheesh.

    Sounds to me like he wants ammo to be 'logged'. Those forms your FFL fills out anytime you buy 2 or more handguns? Yeah, I would be ready for an ammunition version of that if you buy more than say 100 rounds.

    Not the end of the world but its just another step in the wrong direction. Hell I have 2000 rounds of surplus Romanian 8mm, guess that makes me massacre ready to some of the antis.

    377 rounds ain't no hoard or stockpile. Its a rather small purchase at a gun show or a box store.

    The government has no business knowing or caring how many rounds anyone has unless it literally creates a fire hazard. How many can one person carry at any one time anyway? 2000 of handgun ammo? 1,000 of small rifle? 750 of large rifle? 500 shotshells? Beyond that it doesn't matter, just like it shouldn't matter if a gun owner buys more guns - one is enough to do damage, and if someone is a sane and law-abiding citizen, what's wrong with owning 100 or 500 guns?

    THAT is a great line.

    Someone needs to remind Mr. Kaine that the government requires limits, not the people.

    Come on guys! If a Glock 19 and Walther P22 is an “arsenal” then 377 rounds can be an “ammo stockpile”. :rolleyes:

    They would crap in their pants is they saw my "Stockpile".

    We should remind Timmy that the logging of handgun ammo was stopped under FOPA in 1986 since it was found to be useless.

    Wow. I have more rounds than that for just two guns, but thought the supply was running low. How reassuring to hear it's actually a "stockpile!" :rolleyes:

    Since the president and police chief of Virginia Tech believe that they most definitely should not have allowed Cho Seung-Hui to carry weapons on that campus.

    Surely one, the other, or both of them should have taken a couple of minutes out of their busy lives to give the guy a phone call or drop him a note asking him not to do it.

    Haha stockpile? My club has several bricks of .22lr on hand at any one time. We are limited to holding a certain amount and can only buy a certain amount at a time. That amount is set by agreement of our firearm certificate holders and the local police. Oh, it's a university club BTW. Our range is nestled amoungst several halls of residence and a few tens of yards from the student union. 'Massacres' I hear the antis crying? Well I er... no, 25 years and not a single shooting-related incident. (Don't let them hear this, it may upset them...)

    Your club? What good will that do you when the Labour-party Gestapo kicks in the door?

    Well I am surprised it took the "Gov-na" this long. Usually they make ignorant decissions just after a horrible event. At least he waited a month to make his pitch at more stupid legislation.

    I admit it is certainly not ideal from a defence point of view. Remember though that I live in the UK and will not likely be applying for a firearms certificate or shotgun certificate for a few years yet (mainly due to accomodation issues and MONEY).

    I have to play by the rules, even if the rules are unfair. This is of course far from perfect but the only way that any headway can be made against the unfair laws. We must wokr within the system to be able to defeat it, and take an equal but opposite campaign to the antis; chip away constantly. Hopefully with the current debacle concerning the British Olympic pistol team we can make a public appeal not only for one-time exemptions for the hopefuls but also make a permanent change in the law, relaxing the controls on handguns. Public support for this is reassuringly higher than one might expect.

    Of course, I can also foresee the day when all (civilian) firearms are banned in this country. We must fight tooth and nail, never conceding an inch. The same of course applies, needless to say, both sides of the pond -- as it does all over the world.
