Virginia Expected To Drop Handgun Purchase Limit

Virginia is expected to drop a 19-year-old limit on handgun purchases, the Washington Post reports, doing away with a one-gun-per-month cap. 

From the Post:

This week, the Senate passed a bill prohibiting localities from requiring that people seeking concealed handgun permits submit fingerprints as part of their applications. The House passed a bill allowing government employees to store guns and ammunition in personal cars parked in workplace lots, including those at child-care centers and parks.
