From the New York Times comes two reports on how Virginia is responding to the Virginia Tech shooting. A university report has made some heavy-hitting recommendations, including:
Â¶Replacing the hardware on all perimeter doors of buildings. …
Â¶Installing locks on the inside of classroom doors.
Meanwhile,Â what hasÂ the government been doing?
the State Legislature rejected a proposal to close the egregious loophole by which â€œprivateâ€ (i.e. unlicensed) dealers sell weapons at weekend gun shows free of the federal obligation to conduct background checks on buyers. More than a quarter of the dealers have been found selling guns as easily as midway trinkets.
