|Action||Promulgation of new regulation banning concealed firearms in executive branch agency offices|
|Comment Period||Ends 1/27/2016|
This proposed regulation will have the opposite of the intended affect by playing into the hands of terrorists, violent criminals, and the criminally insane. We have had no shootings in state agencies and this prohibition on those with a concealed handgun permit, some of whom have active and ongoing threats to their lives, is entirely without any justification and needlessly and recklessly endangers innocent lives.
Disarming good citizens (who are the only ones likely to obey the prohibition) does not make them safer.
Importantly the Governor has no authority for this regulation. If the General Assembly wanted the Governor to have such power, they would have granted it to him explicitly, as is required constitutionally.
This proposed regulation is a solution for which there is no problem. It endangers state employees, law abiding citizens, and the innocent by making state buildings a safe zone for terrorists, criminals, and the criminally insane to conduct their evil and savage actions.
This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.
Please extended the comment period for another 30 days.
The cost in lives we will loose by this action is on your hands if someone is hurt or killed. With all that is going on in the country today WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD AND DO HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT OURSELFS ANYWHERE ANYTIME..
THE PEOPLE OF VIRGINIA HAVE COME TOGETHER AS ONE TO STOP ANY GUN CONTROL IN OUR STATE. BOTH DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT THEMSELFS AND THERE FAMILYS.
