Virginia is for lovers — of guns. Last month the state overturned a 20-year-old law that barred residents from buying more than one handgun a month. In Virginia, firearms are like potato chips — you can’t stop at just one. Governor Bob McDonnell in February repealed Virginia’s prohibition of purchasing more than one handgun per month. Virginians are now free to buy as many guns as they want. The law was intended to curb gun trafficking, but many Virginians felt it curbed freedom instead. Thirty years after a powerful gun control movement swept the country Americans are embracing guns with a zeal unseen since the days of muskets and militias. For many in the United States, freedom is symbolized by the barrel of a gun. It’s Democracy, locked and loaded.
