Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is set to unveil oodles of new restrictions on legal gun owners and purchasers, including this gem:
McAuliffe will also propose keeping guns away from people convicted of crimes related to domestic violence and revoking concealed-handgun permits for parents who are behind on child-support payments.
NRO’s Charles Cooke asks:
What’s the thinking behind “revoking concealed-handgun permits for parents who are behind on child-support payments”? http://t.co/b4goJPsEe2

There’s no thinking — restricting gun ownership is a Progressive reflex, just like finding new things to tax. Before long, some smarty will figure out that people who don’t have their dogs licensed are also a menace to society, unworthy of a concealed carry permit.
