The State of Virginia should not be dictating to cities, counties, and towns that they must allow armed rallies.

But currently that is state law. Localities cannot ban guns from permitted events on public property.

Delegate David Toscano and Senator Creigh Deeds, both representing Charlottesville, are introducing bills into the Virginia state legislature to change state law to allow localities to decide whether or not to ban guns from events for which they issue permits.

The City of Charlottesville could have banned non-gun weapons from the fascist rally last summer. It has now established new procedures in an effort to cover that up and to do better in the future.

But guns are protected by state law, valued -- one might say -- more highly than human life. This has to change.
