|Promulgation of new regulation banning concealed firearms in executive branch agency offices
|Ended on 1/27/2016
This executive order will effect non-residents and residents of Virginia in a negative way. A lot of people travel and they want to be able to protect their family, friends and themselves. This put U.S. citizens at a greater risk of being harmed if Virginia goes through with this executive order. Virginia needs to find ways for people to protect themselves easier not harder. I am for changing the conceal carry laws in the state of Virginia but in an entirely different manner.
I am against ccw permits and Virginia should get rid of them all together; Virginia should become the 7th state to allow law-abiding citizens to conceal without a permit. The six states that doesn't issue permits to residents are Vermont, Maine, Kansas, Alaska, Arizona and Wyoming. Vermont does not issue CCW permits and residents and non-residents can conceal carry. Vermont also has the third lowest crime rate in the United States. At the very least Virginia should allow residents to conceal without a permit and should recognize all state permits if they choose not to allow non-residents conceal without a permit, which is what Wyoming does.
