RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ The governor said Monday he has closed the loophole that allowed a mentally disturbed Virginia Tech student to acquire the guns used to kill 32 students and faculty members.

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine issued an executive order requiring that people who are found to be dangerous and ordered to undergo involuntary mental health treatment must be included in a database barring them from buying guns.
