Banning Concealed Carry of Firearms in State Buildings

I am totally opposed to this legislation.  The ability to defend oneself under any circumstances is a fundamental right in this country, guaranteed by our wonderful U.S. Constitution.  There is no reason or logical argument to give the State of Virginia the right to violate my rights and ban carry in State Buildings.  Everyday we see the massive and growing pool of evidence that killers take extreem advantage of "Gun Free" killing fields to kill and injure hundreds of innocent people who are, by law, UNARMED, dis-armed by the state and unable to defend themselves.  There is no need for this legislation, no problems it will solve, no benefits to offer on the up-side, but does offer the massive potential of more Killing BY CREATING MORE "GUN FREE" KILLING ZONES.  I do not support this legislation or any legislation that insures the safety of mass killers by creating KILLING ZONES.  Please vote against this legislation.
