Conceal Carry Ban by Governor

You have provided a politically correct solution for a problem that never existed. Banning open OR concealed carry by law abiding Virginia citizens is not only irresponsible but dangerous. The majority of mass shootings in the United States have occurred in GUN FREE ZONES!!  There has never been a problem with open or conceal carry citizens in any state buildings that I can recall. If you honestly believe that criminals will pay any attention to your weapons ban, just look at the recent shootings in California. This "executive order" is dangerous for our citizens and costly to enforce for our state. I respectfully request that the Governor reverse this ban immediately.
