On a day when Vice President Joe Biden was in town pushing the White House's proposed federal gun control measures, a Virginia legislative committee delivered an in-your-face message to the feds:

In the General Assembly Building, blocks away from where Biden spoke Friday, the House of Delegates' Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee approved a bill (HB2340) that would prohibit state agencies and employees from assisting federal authorities in enforcing new restrictions on gun ownership or the private transfer of guns and ammunition.
