Banning Legal gun owners will not stop any criminals.

Any Legislator that choooses to support repressing sane, legal gun owners will be replaced. You are out of touch with reality.

Gun free zones = victim zones. Don't take away the rights of Virginians to protect themselves. If a person is planning a robbery, murder or mass shooting they are not going to be stopped by a "No Guns" sign. They can, and are, stopped by an armed challenger. Look at the stats, Average victims in a mass shooting stopped by the police, 14. The average "intended" mass shooting stopped by an armed citizen, 2. I say intended because two victims does not qualify it as a mass shooting. It has been proven that as soon as they are challenged, by anyone, they flee or kill them selves. Stop using tragidies to further an agenda and do something to actually saves lives. Bottom line is, Guns Save Lives.


I realize the Governor is just following the beat of Obama's communist ideology, but, how does this help the citizens of this great state? The answer is that it doesn't. What we do not need is for people to be disarmed and defenseless. Let's face it, the cops are great, but there are not enough of them to even begin protecting the population. Why cause honest law abiding people to suffer because of his political agenda. That's exactly what will happen when you have these gun free areas, everyone already knows it, let's consider the truth this time and the well being of the people in this state, a state that the Governor has no real connection to. NO GUN BAN!!

Govenor, your agency gun ban is a bad idea.  Gun free zones don't allow law abiding citizens the opportunity to defend themselves.  This is wrong Govenor!  I am a Conceled Hand Gun carrier and I have had the reguired training for my permit.  I spend many, many hours at the range to ensure that I am a competent carrier!  Remember one thing Govenor, criminals don't heed gun free zones.
