Don't make good people defenseless, Don't make it easier for terriorists!

Disarming good citizens (who are the only ones likely to obey the prohibition) does not make them safer!

All but two of the public massacres since 1950 had been committed by criminals and terrorists in “gun-free zones,” which is exactly what this regulation creates.  This proposed regulation is a danger to public safety!  This also endangers state employees who are nothing more than "sitting ducks" for any lunatic wishing to do harm. Obviously, lunatics don't give a damn about regulation or law!

Furthermore, this type of action by any Governor is in direct violation of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia.  We have a State Senate and House of Representatives to make desicions like this.
