Conceal Carry Reciprocity Change Is Wrong

The change made by this Anti Gun Governor and Attorney General are putting people in harms way. It not only means that law abiding citizens from other states will lose their rights to defend themselves in VA, but that Virginia residents will lose their right to defend themselves when traveling abroad. I am sick and tired of seeing liberal anti gun politicians make our citizens victims. Virginia is so close to DC and keeping folks from being able to carry in any state is a travesty, but a state that is so close to our Nationa Capital is beyond stupid. If a terrorist attack happens in Virginia you would think that you would want citizens to be able to have options to defend themselves and others. This can help prevent an attack. Instead this is a open door policy and advertisement to terrorists that Virginia will now be fair game for their deplorable and murderous actions. I can't tell you enough about how disgusted I am to see this reciprocity change. There are ways to decrease gun violence in Virginia and sentencing felons with gun violations is one of them. Removing rights from people who have caused such an insignificant amount of crime in VA is not even a reasonable answer when banning 6 million law abiding citizens from being able to carry in your state! Democrats will be held accountable in the next election and rightly so. To be honest they should be arrested for their illegal actions.
