I was next at VT...

Since 1950, all but 2 of the massacres which include Virginia Tech have been at gun free zones.  I was supposed to be in the next round of classes on the 2nd floor of Norris Hall at VT and am extremely fortunate to be alive today.  Gun free zones do nothing but attract mass murderers.  Why, Mr. Governor, do you think you are morally superior to take my natural right of self-preservation away?  There have been no shootings at state agencies to date and you are making me defenseless.  Obviously, somebody who wants to kill another will not abide by any laws since murder is already illegal.  Disarming law abiding citizens will do nothing to make anybody safer.  Lastly, where in our state constitution have you been granted this power?  This regulation and your political games must be stopped.
