Banning Concealed Firearms in Executive Branch Agencies Aids Criminals, Handicaps Law Abiders

What a stupid idea - making life easier for criminals while handicapping law-abiding citizens.  It is hard to believe anyone supporting this proposed action could actually get a job, never mind carry it out.  Do Virginia's Executive Branch Agency employees feel safer being protected by a "NO GUNS" sign?  Will the idiot governor's protection detail have to abide by the same rules as other Virginia citizens and employees? Time after time, actual experience has proven no gun zones are easy pickens for criminal intentions.  Remember San Bernadino, California?  How about the college in Oregon or the grad school in Connecticut?  Big talk about crime control results in little to no adverse affect on criminals.  Don't believe me - look at gun control places like California and Chicago - havens for gun-toting criminals who aren't even prosecuted for breaking gun laws.  At least give those that have to work or visit Executive Branch Agencies a chance of protecting themselves against criminals.  Allow concealed carry of firearms or disarm the governor and all his minions, that he has to live by his own stupidity as do Virginia citizens and visitors.
