Conceal Carry Reciprocity

I am a resident of the State of Delaware. Both my wife and I posess Delaware CCDW and Pennsylvania LTCF licenses. Prior to this decision, my wife and I were both permitted to conceal carry in Virginia, to protect ourselves and child. Last summer, our family, including myself, my wife, my child, and my mother in law vacationed in the State of Virginia. We visited Skyline Drive, Luray Caverns, Colonial Wiliamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. We comprised five individuals staying in hotels, eating at restaurants, visiting attractions, and spending tourist dollars in the State of Virginia. We spent  a couple thousand dollars on our last visit, We were planning on coming back to visit Colonial Williamsburg in January, but, we canceled that trip due to the decision of the Attorney General to restrict our ability to defend ourselves. We will not return to Va, for any reason, other than to pass through on our way to states that respect our Constitutional rights. I will make sure we don't purchase fuel, food, or any other product or service while traveling through Va until the actions of the Attorney General are reversed.
