Solve a problem that does't exist, WHY????

Mr Governor

Why do you find it necessary to bypass the legal system to create a problem that didn't exist?  I find it inexcusable that you would push your own personal agenda on to law abiding citizens like me.  I feel that creating "gun free " zones is a huge mistake for at least 2 reasons.

1. These zones invite chaos and create an area where criminals face no danger of retaliation or defense.

2. They will create a new class of "criminal",  the normally law abiding citizen that feels that this one law that he/she must break to protect themselves from the aftermath of your recklessness.

I will add a third general observation, I do not nor do many like minded pro-constitution Virginians enter or patronize businesses that are "gun free".

I would say that this order would cause the state to lose revenue but you have already balanced that against the the fines you can assess on normally lawful people that forget or misinterpreted your convoluted rules.

This regulation should not be approved and the emergency regulation removed.

Please extend the comment period for another 30 days.
