Washington Post misses the real issue
But the supposed purpose of the "ban" was to reduce crime. So let's look at a few Virginia figures, from 2004, the last year of the "ban" and from years after it expired.
2004: Murder rate 5.2 Robbery rate 92
2010 Murder rate 4.7 Robbery rate 70
2011 Murder rate: 3.7 Robbery rate 67
The Post used to be a liberal newspaper. Unfortunately, it now is just another organ of the White House propaganda machine.

At least the crime rate have decreased somehow but it is indeed unfortunate that many "real issues" have been "overlooked" by newspapers. It makes one wonder about the truth in these news articles.
