Violation of our God-given right

Me and my family will not stand behind the illegal abuse of power that the Govenor of Virginia has displayed in temporarily banning the legal carry of firearms in and around state facilities nor the pursuit of a more permanent measure. This legislation is in violation of our 2nd Amendment rights and is illegal. The ban will not hold up in court due to the lack of authority by the Govenor to institute such a ban. Disarming good citizens does not make them safer. If that is the case, then the Govenor will have no problems relinquishing his armed security (and the cost to the taxpayers) that surrounds him 24/7. Bans at rest stops located across the Commonwealth is ridiculous and extremely dangerous. The regulation should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn. Please extend the comment period for another 30 days.
