Attorney General Mark R. Herring issued the following statement on Gov. McAuliffe's proposal to restore Virginia's one-handgun-a-month law:
"This is a great step to restore a commonsense measure that never should have been repealed in the first place. Virginia's weak gun laws make it too easy for guns to get into the hands of criminals, making our families, communities, and especially our law enforcement officers less safe, not to mention the heartbreak and damage these guns cause in neighboring states. When you've got gun runners on tape bragging about how weak our gun laws are it should be a pretty clear signal that something needs to change."
