This regulation is dangerous to public safety, why deny Virginia citizens right to self-defense

This ban by our governor is just a way of patronizing the anti-gun movement, which I realize, he's a part of. What the governor is forgetting is that the US and VA Constitutions guarantee all citizens the right of self-defense. Why should that fact that we're entering a government building that we pay for be any different than if we're entering the coliseum or local grocery store? He does not have the right to deny us our Constitutional right of self-protection.

This is nothing more than a reflex action because one isolated shooting took place in a government building, it could just as easily happened in any office building in the country. But our anti Constitutionalist governor thinks he should just use this as an opportunity to pick away at our rights just a little more.

As he hero's administration is fond of saying "you never want a serious crisis go to waste."

This is just one more example of our elected officials overstepping their positions.
