How will this make law abiding responsible gun owners safer? Because criminals won't obey law.

Governor, how exactly will this keep abiding Virginians, with the Consitifutional right to protect life and liberty?  Safe from a criminal who will not obey your executive order? That is why they are criminals, they don't obey the law. During those critical seconds before the police arrive, those of us trained to handle the situation, will not be able to...because of your executive order. One could view this as you not protecting residents of your state. How is this responsible and not reckless?  And which other constitutional right will you be revoking while we are in executive owned or leased building? Will you be revoking our speech as well? Because the President has shown that speech can be much more dangerous than any gun. You can look at how racially divided the country is, by looking at what his speech has done. Or when we are in court will you be revoking our right to lawyer? You see, my point is, you are picking and choosing what constitutional rights we have based upon your liberal opinion of what you think will protect us with no basis. I propose that your order is highly unconstitutional. And dangerous to law abiding citizens and our children.
