"NO" to Executive Order 50 - Governor McAuliffe Firearms Ban

Do NOT implement Executive Order 50 - the Governor McAuliffe Firearms Ban in Virginia Government Offices.   Historical available facts present a clear and compelling conclusion:  Gun Free Zones attract criminals who prey on the defenseless.  It is illogical to believe a group of people become safer if you remove their defensive capabilities.   Law Breakers often chose the course of least resistance and therefore bad intentioned law breakers will ignore Governor McAuliffe's ban.  Why is Governor McAuliffe making our Virginia State Employees defenseless?   Ideology or safety?   Is he unwittingly inviting violence upon our State employees in our Virginia state buildings?  It will be our Virginia employees who suffer consequences of the Governor’s Order to reduce their safety.  Our Virginia Government employees are important to us.   Governor McAuliffe's proposed firearms ban contradicts Virginia citizenry and our support of 2nd Amendment rights as expressed in many votes in our Virginia Legislature.  Virginia must NOT allow Executive Order 50 - the Governor McAuliffe Firearms Ban.
