Besides being an illegal order under the Virginia Constitution, banning weapons in government buildings will do NOTHING to make the employees safer. In fact, it may make them more unsafe as it makes government buildings a much softer target. Disarming citizens from their right to carry under state law will do nothing to discourage criminals who will not abide buy this order anyway. If the General Assemby wanted this provision, they would have enacted it as required by law. The Governor has no legal authority to do this.
