This regulation should not be approved, and the emergency regulation withdrawn

There have been no shooting incidents in the executive branch agency offices in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Designating these area as gun-free zones is an invitation to criminals and terrorists.  This regulation makes the public and employees of the commonwealth less safe.

This regulation will be followed only by law-abiding citizens.  Any person who has decided to commit the crime of murder is certainly not going to abide by this regulation.

I request that the comment period be extended for another 30 days.
