A gun-of-the-month club?

I applaud Governor Patrick’s and President Obama’s moves on gun control . However, my reaction to the proposed limit of one gun purchase per month in Massachusetts is the same as when the other Commonwealth I lived in (Virginia) enacted a similar limit in 1994 to blunt the flow of weapons to cities further north.

I ask: Who needs to buy a dozen guns a year?
