they found a receipt in his pocket for a hand gun purchased in march
As a legal permanent U.S. resident, Cho had the same rights as a citizen for the purposes of buying and possessing firearms. In Virginia, a green card holder must establish that he has been a resident of the state for at least 90 days by providing a valid photo ID plus documentation such as a utility bill or lease...
The state's firearms purchase eligibility test lists 16 questions that all must be answered "no" for the purchase to go forward
Since 1993 it has been illegal for any person not a licensed firearms dealer to purchase more than one handgun within any 30-day period. The state does not maintain registration lists of firearms owners.
Err.... guess they did let him. Opened mouth...inserted foot.
Which means he came to the USA as an 8 year old....at an age when you are most impressionable/want to fit in........so by now well steeped in the American ways
Good point. But, I was raised in the American ways. I'm a good lad :)
