Decade-long gun ban in Virginia saw results

In light of the recent shooing in Tucson, David S. Fallis and James V. Grimaldi of the Washington Post investigate the 10-year federal ban on assault weapons with "high-capacity magazines" in Virginia. The ban ended in 2004 with the lowest rate the state has seen, however; the rate has increased each year since. Congress is considering reissuing the ban, which is strongly opposed by gun rights advocates.
