IN VIRGINIA, gun sales are up, and crime is down.

Gosh, who could have seen this coming?

UPDATE: Via reader John Lucas, much more here from the Times-Dispatch. Lucas adds:

The [Washington Post] op ed predictably (for the Wa Po) tries to denigrate the data in the Times Dispatch article. The ultimate sentence betrays the author’s viewpoint, while reinforcing the Wa Po’s recent editorial slant that opposition to this administration is racist: “As for Obama, any link between a desire for personal, deadly firepower and the election of the country’s first African American president raises some rather ugly questions.”

The Times Dispatch article really is well done.

Yes, the Post has really descended into racial agitprop lately. One can only imagine what they’d be like if Obama had lost. And it does seem that we see better and more honest journalism these days from regional papers than from the WaPo and the NYT.
