I demand a Public Hearing on this regulation!

December 28, 2015.

The Notice of Intended Regulatory Action published in the Virginia Register of Regulations on December 14, 2015, concerning the prohibition of carrying concealed handguns in Executive Branch offices states that a Public Hearing will NOT be held at the proposed regulation stage.

I demand that a Public Hearing be held during the proposed regulation stage for the intended regulations prohibiting carrying concealed handguns in Executive Branch offices.  Given the state-wide impact, I demand that public hearings be scheduled throughout the Commonwealth to allow all to comment without excessive travel cost.

Who bypassed the Constitution of Virginia?

"Secrecy is the freedom that zealots dream of. No watchmen to check the door. No accountant to check the books. No judge to check the law. The secret government has no constitution."

The Secret Government: Bill Moyers (1987)
