YOu do not have the right to deny virginians self defense

I am appaled that your as our governor would attemp to restrict our right to self defense. this is simply against all the virginia stands for. you are making all the places that this effects more unsafe. i am sure that you do not intend to do away with your armed protection. should you be consistant in you stated intentions that would be one of the first things that you do. i will bet that the sheriffs or state police at the entrances to these places will remain armed so why would the general public, who is superior to the government by the way, not be allowed to be armed as well.  in addition, having read virginia state lasw on carrying of weapons many times, i cannot understand how this is even legal under current law without going throught the legislature. you are not a king you are the governor, tasked with inforcing legislative laws, not writing them.   your intentions are at least uninformed and ill advised or at worst intentionally disarming the people of your state for other purposes. thank you for your time and i hope that you come to your senses and remove this ludicrous regulation.
