Why deny Virgina Citizens the right to bare arms to protect themselves

This proposed regulation will have the opposite of the intended affect by
playing into the hands of terrorists, violent criminals, and the criminally
insane.  We have had no shootings in state agencies and this prohibition on
those with a concealed handgun permit, some of whom have active and ongoing
threats to their lives, is entirely without any justification and needlessly
and recklessly endangers innocent lives.

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