Banning of Lawful Concealed Carry in VA State Government Buildings

The the lawful carrying of concealed weapons by those who have been vetted by the CCW application process, should not be banned from having on their persons the ability to defend themselves, or their loved ones, in VA State Government buildings.  At a time when our nation is dealing with ISIS, and it's US followers, targeting defenseless idividuals, as demonstrated by Paris and San Bernadino, creating "No CCW" and "No Gun" zones makes these areas easy targets.  We are reminded every day that criminals do not obey the law, so why would they obey this one.  Leaving LEOs as the only armed response at a site, makes them the first targets of an attack.  Repeal the executive order banning CCW in VA State Government buildings.
