Virginia Rights

This ban is dangerous to all citizens of Virginia.  With leaders across the state and country calling for our citizens to arm their homes in order to defend them in conjunction with the current climate of unrest and groups calling for harm to all Americans this is a time where we must act.  Our founding fathers put in place a right for us. That right is for me, as a Virginian and American to be able to attend a ball game or simply go to dinner in public and have a right to protect myself for those who wish harm to me for no other reason than the fact that I am an American.  This is simply not our Governor's call.  It is our call as Virginian's.  Let's get this right people.  Let's keep Virginia safe and terror free.  Let's walk down our streets and enjoy our state knowing that if you bring the fight to us....we will bring it back.  We will not sit here without defense. Democrat?  Rebublican?  Both parties can bring hours of statistics and debate on each side.  Richmond here is is:  

If you are sitting at a table or in an office and you hear shots fired....what are you going to do if one Governor takes the right to defend yourself away?  Probably line up in back of me to get you out no matter what side you are on because I choose to use my rights granted to me by my founding fathers.
