I John Public want to know what gives you the right to ban guns

In dangerous times we don't need a political agenda that crucifies the Second Amendment. Nor do we need a Governor that wants to impose an emergency state-agency gun ban.  It's not the responsible gun owners that need to be punished , its the people that are mentally unstable and in most cases seeking help that need to be identified and prevented from inflicting senseless acts of violence.

 You governor need to open your ears to mental health initiatives and worry less about carrying out a personal party agenda.  I hear the state has a law suit directly related to not gun use but its inability to help a victim of mental illness.

We the people hear a different call of victimization. I personally feel the need to protect myself form the threats that are more real and that comes from the belief that this country is under attack from terrorists that some refuse to call Islamic, and from thousands of criminals that have been released by pardons from your administration. These are real concerns of mine.

It amazes me that like POTUS you feel you have the right to re-write the laws that my forefathers guarantee in The Constitution. As a reminder, The Second Amendment states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Take heed Gov. McAuliffe, quite being such a brown nose and stand with the people in Virginia in protecting our second Amendment Rights.

And extension needs to be made so more people can get the word of what you are trying to do and can comment as such. 

Thank you.
