Bitter Clingers

The editorialists at The Washington Post are upset that Virginia is poised to repeal the "one-handgun-a-month" law. Even though they acknowledge that it is now obsolete and redundant due to the NICS "instant check" system, they still want to hold on to it.

One commenter said, "I'm all for the one gun a month limit -- just as soon as the editors of the Washington Post accept a "one newspaper a month" publication limit upon freedom of the press."

h/t Snowflakes In Hell.

And in a related story: hundreds of new handguns have been brought into the District of Columbia and registered after the Heller decision. Has there been an explosion of gun crime in D.C.? No. Have any of these guns been used in a crime? No. Has there been any coverage in the Post of this astounding anomaly? No.

In their parade of horribles, the scenario that they propose (crack dealers in New York paying 21 year old non-criminals to break the law) is already illegal under federal law.
