Below is a clip from the VSSA interwiew at the 2014 NRA Annual Meeting.
VSSA was contacted by WTVR CBS 6 in December of 2011 about a new report based on a recent entrapment scheme by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg that claimed Virginia is a source for criminal purchase of firearms over the Internet.
In December of 2010, WTVR CBS 6 contacted VSSA to discuss the lifting of the ban on transporting firearms in checked baggage on Amtrak trains.
