This regulation is dangerous to me, my family and public safety!!!

I do not understand the logic of this proposed regulation.  I believe it will embolden criminals to carry out acts of terror while law abiding citizens will become prey.  I do not believe the state of VA has had any shootings in state agencies and this prohibition on those with a concealed handgun permit is dangerous to the safety of citizens.

Why would disarming good citizens make them safer when criminals do not obey the law anyway? 

The Governor is overstepping his boundaries and is not acting with public safety in mind.

This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.

Please extended the comment period for another 30 days.
