I am very worried that I have lost my reciprcosity right to carry in my birth state of Flroida and my visiting family from Florida lose their self defense rights here in Virginia. While they would inherit our open carry right this is insufficient since their training and experience is in concealed carry and are a high risk of making a procedural right to open carry while visiting us.
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 request 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 request that public hearings be scheduled throughout the Commonwealth to allow all to comment without excessive travel cost.
