|Action||Promulgation of new regulation banning concealed firearms in executive branch agency offices|
|Comment Period||Ends 1/27/2016|
This proposed gun ban regulation will do nothing to protect people in public buildings and will play into the hands of those who would do harm to those frequenting such places.
We have had no shootings in state agencies and this prohibition on those with a concealed handgun permit, is entirely without any justification and needlessly and recklessly endangers innocent lives.
Disarming good citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia does not make us safer. The Governor of Virginia 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 and law abiding citizens.
It is a simplistic knee-jerk politically correct bit of nonsense.
This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.
Please extended the comment period for another 30 days.
