The proposed law had nothing to do with the crime
, but Deeds was "moved" by the parents "appeals." My question is: why were the parents even talking about gun show regulations? I know that the Brady Campaign was pushing for this, but who would even think of bringing up a regulation that was unrelated to the crime.
For years, Deeds had opposed gun show restrictions. His perspective changed after the April 16, 2007, Virginia Tech massacre when a student with two handguns shot 32 people dead on campus then killed himself as police closed in.
Although neither of the guns Seung-Hui Cho used to carry out the worst mass killing on a college campus in U.S. history was purchased at a gun show, Deeds said he was moved by the appeals of parents, relatives and friends of the slain. . . .
