Opposition to Gun Ban in Executive Branch Offices

I find it ironic that in a time when the United States has just had it's worst terrorist attack since 9/11, the Governor can advocate leaving Virginia citizens defenseless against such terror. The terrorist attack in San Bernardino, CA occurred in a County office exactly like the offices that this regulation would prohibit law-abiding armed citizens from carrying their firearms into. I strongly oppose this regulation, both as a citizen of Virginia and as a law enforcement officer who knows that the only people affected by this law will be the law-abiding citizens. Criminals and terrorists do not abide by your laws, hence the reason they are criminals. This regulation will guarantee that those who wish to do harm will have free reign, with nothing to stop them.
