I am tired of Govenor McAuliffe and Attorney General Herring's abuse of their office. Their latest attack on the freedoms that we as citizens of Virginia hold dear is nothing short of political pay back to Michael Bloomberg for his political contributions to their campaigns. Instead of representing the large majority of Virginians and protecting our right to defend ourselves they have chosen to act like tyrants and put forth their own personal agenda. This is only the latest in a long line of abusing their executive authority to forward their own personal goals and political paybacks. The removal of reprocity with other states holders of conceal weapons permits hurts as economically as many people will choose not to visit the state of Virginia. And also it endangers Virginians when they travel to other states because our permits will no longer be excepted in their states. I personally feel our founding fathers and the framer of the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson would be embarrassed at how our governor and attorney general are failing the citizens of Virginia. I will stand but all my fellow CHP holders and pursue any legal means by which to overturn this tyrannical decision. We is Virginians love our liberty and as retired military and someone who has defended our constitution during a time of war I am greatly offended that they thumb their nose at the constitution of both the United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia. I only wish that we had the ability to recall our governor and attorney general.
