Most States Are Looking At Some Form Of Gun Legislation
Before last year's elections, the executive director of the Senate Republican Caucus obtained a copy of the entire database of handgun carry permit holders in Tennessee. The GOP controlled chamber voted to block public access to those records. The Senate then voted overwhelmingly to pass the bill. Those voting in favor of the measure included Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey of Blountville, who had previously expressed support for keeping the records open to the public. Ramsey wanted to find a way to bar media organizations from publishing the handgun carry records online, but a state attorney general's opinion found constitutional problems with that approach. Congressman Morgan Griffith said on the Steve Hawkins Show that the focus should be on gun access to the mentally ill and doesn’t expect gun legislation in Virginia. (bg)
