Why deny Virginia citizens right to self-defense?

I am a Vietnam Veteran and I fought for are freedoms including the Governor's.Why are you disarming law abiding citizens? This proposed regulation will make another "gun free zone' playing in the hands of terrorists and the criminally insane. Thankfully we have not had any shootings in state agencies. Disarming good citizens does not make anyone safer.

The Governor has no authority for this requlation. If the General Assembly wanted the Governor to have this power they would have granted it as required by the constitution. 

This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn. 

Please extend the comment period for another 30 days.
