This is an outrage!

When I stopped at the Va. ABC Store in Winchester and saw the no firearms sign for the first time yesterday, asked the store manager,about it. She told me the governor signed and executive order banning firearms from VA State owned buildings. She also told me that she and the other employees are now terrified, because all criminals know that the store is now a gun free zone. 

I oppose this executive order!

It is ridiculous to think that taking away the right of law abiding citizens to defend themselves will make Va State Employees safer. Does anyone believe that a robber will see the sign and say " Oh I can't rob this place because they don't allow guns".
