Emergency Decree on Banning Guns At State Agencies



Dear Governor,

As a long time Virginian who is currently living overseas until 2018 when we will return to Windsor, I find your decree and actions to ban guns in state agencies very disturbing to say the least.  I do not see any need for such nor can I ever remember any incidents that would mandate such actions on your part.  I therefore request you do not go through with this action because then i will be forced to recommend to all my hundreds of European friends here to not visit or vacation in Virginia as it appears it has become "too dangerous".  I seriously doubt our Founding Fathers, especially those from Virginia, would support you either in this misguided attempt of searching for a political solution to a problem that does not exist except in your mind.
