Clueless Governor

Once again McAuliffe is not representing the people of our fine Commonwealth but rather pushing his own agenda.  This executive order preceding this bill is also illegal as he does not have the power granted to him to do this. The Code of Virginia, Section 2.2-103 specifically states what powers are granted to the Governor and executive orders are not mentioned.  This bill is nothing but an act of sedition against our US and State Constitutions and infringes on our inalienable RIGHT to keep and bear arms as stated by the US Constitution, 2nd Amendment and Section 13 of the Constitution of Virginia.  Almost all of the mass shootings that have happened world-wide have been in gun-free zones and this bill only gives terrorists, criminals, and mentally ill people more chances to attack unarmed and defenseless citizens.  Banning firearms in government agency offices is a BAD idea.
