Concealed Carry

Your denial of out of state concealed carry is all well and good if you want to lose money. Now I have your attention. I am a citizen of North Carolina and travel to and through Virginia quite often. I'm a fisherman who trout fishes there and a hunter who has hunted there on occasion. We vacation there quite often, Williamsburg, Richmond, Winchester and Bristol. We travel the Blue Ridge Parkway and spend several nights at a time, we hike the Appalchian Trail, and ride horses in the Mount Rogers area. He bike along the Virginia Creeper trail and boat and fish the New River into Wilson. I spend a great deal of time and money in your state, but no more! If my gun, who hasn't hurt anyone, who with I've been trained with (all my adult life as a Soldier of 30 years) is no welcome, then neither is my money. I will no longer support the businesses, hotels, outdoor areas, guides, and gas stations in the state of Virginia! I also feel that many like me will feel the same way. We in North Carolina, won't enact a similar ban on the good people from your state because that would make them less safe when traveling to ours, but if you make us less safe in yours state, we won't come back! Think about how much revenue you will lose as a consequence. I hope you come to your senses, but I know you won't. I only hope that the good people of Virginia vote your ass out th next election!
