Proposed Ban on CCW Firearms permittees in State Facilities.

I am totally against the governor's proposed executive action. I have 3 reasons for this. 1. If I am about my normal business, and have to go into a state business for any reason, I am required to disarm and leave my firearm in my automobile. Most crimes are committed with STOLEN weapons, or weapons used by the Unauthorized users. These are statistically valid statements and as such I do not want to contribute to that pool of stolen weapons. 2. I carry a weapon as a constitutional right to self defense, and as such being deprived of this right while on grounds and facilities that *I* Have paid for is deprivation of my rights without Due Process. 3. A governoral edict such as this is NOT for the general improvement of the commonwealth, but is instead a political statement regarding the Governor's intent to further limit Rights of Virginians under both the Federal and State Constitution. And it deprives myself and others of these rights without Due Process or our consideration.
