Remove this unconstitutional gubnatorial overreach!

There is no justification either real or imagined for this current overeach by Gov McAullife.  He has violated the trust of the citizens of Virginia by abusing his position to institute an unconstitutional "executive order" under the guise of an "emergency".  Commonwealth law determines where carry of firearms is permitted, not the Governor. He has no consitutional authority to do so. The Governor should remove these orders now and the Legislature should immediately convene to both block future attempts at such orders and to call for his impeachment under Article II, Section 17.
