GRAPHIC=VT Campus Shooting Last week's rampage has re- ignited



the debate over Virginia's gun laws.

One issue-- should Virginia be more
strict on people who've been treated
for mental problems?

ENG#=3 VO-NAT
VO-NAT




*CG locator Richmond

It's a question lawmakers are
starting to ask.

Currently a person's mental
health history is only considered in a
gun sale if the person has been
committed to a mental institution.

That was a non- issue for Cho
Seung- Hui since he was treated as an
out- patient.

Attorney General Bob McDonnell
wants out- patient records to be part
of the background check.

The Chairman of the state panel
looking into what happened last Monday
has already made it clear he thinks
it's common sense.
