This regulation is dangerous to public safety

.This proposed regulation will play into the hands of terrorists, violent criminals, and criminally insane people.

 We had no shootings in state agencies and this prohibition on those with a concealed carry handgun permit is entirely without any justification, needless, and recklessly endangers innocent lives.

Disarming good peaceful citizens of Virginia does not make them safer.

The governor has no authority for this regulation. The legislature has that authority only.

It endangers state employees and peacful law abiding citizens by making state buildings a safe zone for criminals, terrorists, and insane people to conduct criminal acts on defenseless citizens.

Paid state emplyees with sidearms will be needed in all these buildings. How much will that cost ?

This regulation should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.

Please extend the comment period for another 30 days.
