Banning CCW in State Executive Buildings

This ban is absolutely absurd!  Historically active shooters and terrorists strike where they are least likely to encounter resistance.  They tend not to attack venues where they may encounter armed resistance.  Typically they favor gun free zones.   Our state government has now created gun-free zones where the law abiding citizens no longer have the right of self defense.  What has lead to this?  What problem is this solving? ................. Our governor is chipping away at our 2nd Amendment rights any way he can and this was an easy one for him.  On the heels of that Virginia (Attorney General) is now refusing to recognize of the CCW permits of 20+ other states.  What problem has this solved?  It hasn't and won't.  It's going to create problems as the other states refuse to recognize VA CCW permits.  

This in effect is stripping the right of self defense for millions of people across the entire country.   It's nuts!
