|Action||Promulgation of new regulation banning concealed firearms in executive branch agency offices|
|Comment Period||Ends 1/27/2016|
I’ve learned that since there is not a public hearing planned on the state-agency gun ban, we must request one. We need at least 25 people to make the following public comment (if you’ve already made a previous comment on the ban, you can still do this comment). Please use my wording for the comment and subject line:
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.
