STOP Regulations Banning Concealed Firearms in Offices Occupied by Executive Branch Agencies

There should be no regulations banning concealed or open carry of firearms in the offices occupied by executive branch agencies.

Why replicate Paris or San Bernardino or some 90% of the mass shooting’s targets of opportunity?

There is no immediate threat to life, limb, or property, here in Virginia – and thus there are no grounds for proceeding with an emergency basis or enacting the proposed regulation.

On the other hand “posted” offices occupied by executive agencies, elsewhere, have drawn actual attacks to life, limb, and property

None of California draconic laws helped those poor victims.  In fact, their very laws and regulations prohibited those poor victims from having available the best tools to have saved their lives.  Once more the soft target of yet another Unarmed Victim Zone draws an attack – yet Virginia is considering attracting terrorist – both domestic and foreign to attack executive branch agencies.

California is rated by the Brady Campaign as having “the strongest gun laws” in the nation. Obviously, all those “laws” proved utterly useless in the face of reality. In spite of that, Virginia is considering adopting want is more of what doesn’t work.

When are folk going to wake-up.

There is a name for doing the same thing over and over and expecting different outcomes. 

So, on this the 224th anniversary of Bill of Rights ratification (on December 15, 1791) I implore that Virginia follow the wisdom of earlier Virginia Statesmen –  by confirming and supporting the right of armed self-protection and armed protection against "all enemies, foreign and domestic” for Virginians, and visitors to our fair.
