While the media continues on with their heads in the sand (or up their asses, I can't tell), at least the voters of Virginia know not to tinker with things that aren't broken. this is from the Fairfax Connection newspaper - a local weekly (or is that a weak local) paper here in Northern Virginia.
To the Editor:
Concerning your editorial about guns and open carry, I have to wonder why you insist on "fixing" something that isn't broken. Crime statistics show that as Virginia has loosened up on gun control with the concealed-carry law and state pre-emption, the crime rate has dropped. At the same time, Maryland and the District have pursued gun control and enjoy crime rates more suitable to a banana republic. Does anyone notice a pattern here?
For Pete's sake, when something is working, let it go. Don't derail one of the few successful things to come out of Richmond in years.
