Editorial--now this is the media we're used to!
Editorial in the (VA) Daily Press. Count the nonsequiturs. My favorite: a bill allowing CCW holders into restaurants that serve alcohol, so long as they do not drink it themselves, was properly vetoed because " Alcohol and firearms are a dangerous mix."
Of course illustrating that with two incidents involving drunken federal agents gets second prize.
And a bill allowing a firearm in a vehicle so long as it was under lock and key would have made the lives of policemen risky. We all know how cop-killers like to put their guns in locked containers, so the officer has a sporting chance.
Civilians would have gotten twice as drunk.

Ironically, VCDL reports that:
Governor Kaine went on to sign SB 776, a bill that permits Commonwealth Attorneys and their deputies, with NO requirement for any firearms training, to carry a concealed handgun into a restaurant that serves alcohol AND DRINK while they're at it!!!
