Baseless Claim

The Department's claim that "allowing concealed carry in state facilities exposes state employees and citizens to unnecessary risk." has no merit or base.  Several thousand people throughout Virginia carry firearms daily and to my knowledge they have not caused any incidents.  The General Assembly expressly permits citizens to carry concealed throughout the Commonwealth, but these citizens suddenly become untrustworthy when they enter a state-owned facility.
