Stop Endangering Virginians With Agenda-driven Gun Ban In State Buildings

The governor's agenda-driven and illegal across-the-board gun ban in state government buildings is a singlehanded move to force Mr. McAuliffe's personal belief onto a Virginia public that is no threat at all. For years back, in fact, to 1950, all but two of the terrible public mass shootings have happened in so-called "gun-free" zones. Is there nothing to be learned from this by the governor? This move by him disarms off-duty law enforcement officers...what is the wisdom in that? It will have no effect on someone determined to slaughter others...they don't obey the law!

This executive action by Governor McAuliffe is at the request of no law-abiding group here. It is a personal action dictated by his agenda. This needs to stop, now! How many people must die at the hands of terrorists because they can operate in areas where lawful men and women cannot act.
