Now if I cross the street, I am a criminal!

I live in Bristol, TN and practice in Virginia and Tennessee.  My first conceal carry permit was issued to me by Virginia when I lived there.  10 years ago I moved to Bristol, TN but still have the majority of my practice inVirginiaif I have my weapon in downtown Bristol I am still completely legal on the Tennessee side.  But if I cross the street this law has just made me a criminal.  If it stands I will consider moving the entirety of my medical work to Tennessee.  I just don't feel like these liberal policies deserve ANY more of my tax money.  So I will vote with my feet and wallet.  The policies they are implementing are putting lives in danger.  Just this week there was a shooting in a Charlotte, NC mall and a good guy with a gun stopped the bad guy.  Virginia, these guys do not deserve to be leaders in your state.
