Per Section 18.2-308.2:2 of the Virginia Code, the SP-65 form cannot be maintained by state police for more than 30 days except when multiple handguns are purchased (then 12 months). Nor does the form identify the firearm(s) purchased beyond type. I believe "multiple transactions" is defined as within five business days (at least according to my LGS).

"3. Except as required by subsection D of ยง 9.1-132, the State Police shall not maintain records longer than 30 days, except for multiple handgun transactions for which records shall be maintained for 12 months, from any dealer's request for a criminal history record information check pertaining to a buyer or transferee who is not found to be prohibited from possessing and transporting a firearm under state or federal law. However, the log on requests made may be maintained for a period of 12 months, and such log shall consist of the name of the purchaser, the dealer identification number, the unique approval number and the transaction date."

Note that the request log may be maintained for 12 months but does not include the buyer's address, which would likely have to be subpoenaed from the dealer's records.
In NJ, the bad guys are armed and the households are alarmed. In VA, the households are armed and the bad guys are alarmed.
