Reinstate VA's concealed carry reciprocity

To say I am disappointed and disgusted in the Attorney General's actions is an understatement.  His actions will likely result in my VA CC no longer being recognized in other states.  I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen (who owns multiple properties) and chose to stay in VA after my retirement from 20 years in the service.  My choice to stay in VA was largely influenced by VA's firearms friendly laws.  The AG's actions will now likely result in my no longer being able to carry concealed in other states.  This is a significant issue for me and has prompted me to consider moving elsewhere.  The tax burden I face in this state is far higher than other areas I could relocate to.  Why should I continue to reside in VA when government officials feel they can trample on my rights by fiat? 

If Virginia's government is going to take actions that impede on my rights as a citizen of the commonwealth and this nation, it should be put to a vote.  That is how our system is supposed to work.  The legislative branch is responsible for addressing these issues, NOT the AG.  The AG needs to reverse course and stay in his lane.
