“… Bloomberg, one of the country’s top advocates for tough gun laws, said dismantling the law will enhance Virginia’s reputation as the gun-running capital of the East Coast. “Virginia is the No. 1 out-of-state source of crime guns in New York, and one of the top suppliers of crime guns nationally,” Bloomberg said …”
If this is true then it means that the law wasn’t deterring criminals so scrapping it will have no negative effect. Therefore Bloomie has nothing to complain about.
