RICHMOND, Va. — A Democrat-led Virginia Senate panel voted Monday to advance a range of gun control bills, including legislation meant to address recent campus shootings at the University of Virginia and a Newport News elementary school.

In an hours-long hearing, the Senate Judiciary Committee signed off on measures that would tighten Virginia’s gun storage regulations and ban most guns from public college campuses.

according to who? Giffords ranks them 14th and gives them a B. Don't cherry pick!
