Head of VA Tech Review Panel Says Crime Commission Review ‘Prudent Decision’

HouseGOPPress Releases

Democrats, including Sen. Tim Kaine, don’t like the fact that Republicans asked the Virginia Crime Commission to study the legislation pending before the Special Session Governor Northam called regarding gun control.

But the retired State Police Chief Kaine asked to run the Virginia Tech Review Panel disagrees.

According to the Roanoke Times:

“..the chairman of the panel Kaine appointed, Gerald Massengill, retired head of the Virginia State Police, said Thursday it was a ‘prudent decision’ to have the crime commission look at the legislation. ‘Gun safety is one of the highest priorities when it comes to public safety, and they’re going to have to examine some issues that will be controversial’” Massengill said.”
