We MUST be allowed to be armed in ALL government buildings, parking lots and highway rest stops
Didn't we learn ANYTHING from San Bernadino?
Criminals and terrorists don't care about laws, only lawful citizens do.

This proposed regulation will have the opposite of the intended affect by giving terrorists, criminals, and the insane EXACTLY what they want, a shooting gallery!

We haven't had any shootings in VA state agencies and this prohibition on those with a concealed handgun permit and Off-duty police officers from carrying in them. This regulation invites just that disaster.

Why can't our officials see the insanity of disarming good citizens, who are the only ones who will obey the prohibition. It DOESN'T make them safer. 

What is worse, the Governor is guily of Usurpation of Authority in trying to force the enactment of this regulation.  If the General Assembly wanted the Governor to have such power, it would have given it to him as is required by our  constitution.

This proposed regulation is a solution for which there is no problem.  It everyone in a state buildings by making it into a safe zone for terrorists, criminals, and the insane - EXACTLY what it is NOT supposed to do.

This regulation must not be approved and the emergency regulation should be withdrawn.

Please extended the comment period for another 30 days and PUBLICIZE it so that our citizens become aware of what is being done in the shadows.
