Bans on the carry of firearms in government buildings is the incorrect way to curb violence in Virginia. To date, there have been exactly zero incidents in which a person legally carrying a concealed firearm has shot and killed any person within a government building. However, with the increased threat of terrorism, and armed citizenry could, in effect, be the true first responders, responding to a threat while it happens.
