The Score

This Week: Gun control, RVA oyster options, + more.

Posted on Tue, Dec 18, 2012 at 6:08 PM


+10 Saying enough is enough, U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, who has carried an A rating from the National Rifle Association, calls for lawmakers to pass what he calls "rational gun control" following the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

+3 Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli agrees with environmental groups that the current renewable energy law sucks and needs revision. This alone was enough to curb global warming, since the center of the earth suddenly froze over. 

+2 Seafood lovers rejoice as Rappahannock Restaurant, from the guys who brought you Rappahannock River Oysters, opens downtown on East Grace Street. Other people heard rejoicing: creepy dudes who wear too much cologne and think oysters will help get them laid.

+1 Washington Redskins roll without their star quarterback, RGIII. Anything that increases the value of our summer preseason, we'll take.

-8 Catholic Bishop Walter Sullivan dies at 84. Richmond loses a moral conscience and spiritual leader who served here for 38 years.
