Will Virginia get rid of one handgun a month regulation?

Virginia State Delegate Scott Lingamfelter (R - Prince William & Fauquier Counties) has pre-filed House Bill 49 for the 2010 Virginia General Assembly session to repeal the current one-gun-a-month limit. Right now only 3 other states ration handgun purchases: California, Maryland, and New Jersey (South Carolina repealed their gun rationing law several years ago). Back in 1993, Governor-elect Bob McDonnell (R) voted for the one handgun a month law when he was in the state House of Delegates, but he has now signaled that he would back repeal. The Second Edition of More Guns, Less Crime and The Bias Against Guns both looked at one-gun-a-month rules, but found no benefits from these laws.
