Governor's Executive Order Disarming Virginians in Ridiculous
The Governor's order to not allow firearms in offices controlled by the Executive Office is ridiculous. He is disarming law-abiding citizens for no reason except for his unfounded fear of guns. The General Assembly did not allow concealed carry permit holders to carry everywhere else (except what is prohibited by federal law) just so the Governor could go around them to enact what is in effect law by executive order. He needs to rethink his action and remove those restrictions. He is NOT a law-maker by any stretch of the imagination. I will urge the GA to take this up during the next session to override his executive order. He should save face and reverse it now.
