I am deeply concerned and appalled by Gov. McAliff and Attorney General Herring's recent executive order concerning concealed carry reciprocity with 25 other states. This action will cause law abiding VA CCP permit holders to either: 1. Become criminals when visiting these states that will no longer recognize their VA CCP permits or 2. Take away a Virginia CCP holders ability to legally defend themselves or their family in these states. This is not what the 2nd amendment to the constitution intended.
Equally disturbing is the abuse of office by our Govener.By unilaterally making this decision and not having the issue presented, debated and voted on by the Commonwealth's General Assembly he has in effect proclaimed that he knows better than the citizens of Virginia and their elected representatives what is best for us - An appalling and dangerous precedent for our Commonwealth .
