Virginia`s Crime Commission will study the issue of private sales at gun shows -- but already has made clear it will not issue any legislative recommendations as a result of its findings. That has upset some of the usual suspects in the gun-control wars, including those who favor closing an ostensible loophole. What good, they ask, is a study without recommendations? The question assumes the study would reach the same conclusions they already have. But what good is a study whose outcome is known in advance? An unbiased study very well might refute arguments in favor of tighter restrictions.
