My Rights Taken Away

I think this is a disgrace where one person has the right to tell or make the rest of the people of this great state of Virginia do what he wishes. I do not believe this is what the majority of Viriginians want. We have not had any issuse's that I have seen on the news or in the newpapers. On shootings in State agencies or buildings. I just hope that this is thought about more and let the people that us Viriginians sent up to make the laws work this out and then have the law signed if thats what they think as a group needs to be done. No one understands how it feels when you know how to keep yourself and your family safe but told you can't do it when you go out and about in this day and age. Very disappointed in this Governor he doesn't have to worry about his security. He has taxpayer funded protection where he goes. I would say I have the right to keep my handgun with me at all times and that shouldnt be infringed and I think that is just what this Governor is doing with my rights as it comes to carrying. I will support any action taken against this in the courts. Also I hope that after all these comments the Governor thinks over this more and does the right thing in the end. Thanks alot John Linton
