Don't put gov't employees at greater risk in new gun-free zones!

This regulation will create new soft targets for terrorists and put our gov't employees at greater risk!  Just say no.  Don't do it.  Wartime is no time to make new soft targets.  

This proposed regulation is a solution for which there is no problem.  It endangers state employees, law abiding citizens, and the innocent by making state buildings a safe zone for terrorists, criminals, and the criminally insane to conduct their evil and savage actions.

As a great Virginian once put it, “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms.” – James Madison.

Demonstrate Virginia's higher class of leadership by exercising that faith in your citizens, as has always been Virginia's tradition.  The result will be what you say you desire, greater safety for gov't workers, citizens and others.
