Don't Make State Employees Sitting Ducks

With just two exceptions, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S., in which more than three people have been killed, has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.

Please do not paint a target on Virginia government buildings. Since we need to keep all of our state employees safe, this regulation must not be allowed to happen.

Ask yourself this: Would you put a sign on your house indicating that it is a gun-free zone? If the answer is no, than this proposed rule must be withdrawn.

Disarming the law-abiding will never make us safer.
