Va. Considers Lifting Ban on Purchasing More than One Gun Per Month

The new DC Examiner reports this proposal could threaten "a regional effort to reduce gun crimes" according to Maryland, Northern Virginia and D.C. Democrats.

Combating gun violence must be a multi-jurisdictional effort, said Prince George's County Council Member David Harrington, D-District 5... "That's why if we're going to curb crime, it has to be regional. We can't make a change in one place and dump it on somebody else."
No word on whether Member Harrington is urging the District to adopt the death penalty or advocating that Maryland actually implement it.
