Another anti who thinks "unarmed victim zones" work and that recent State gun rights law changes will result in more danger, because permitting "ordinary citizens to carry firearms in places where weapons don't belong is ... dangerous ...."
We will become the Wild West
Re: "Gun law change helps the law-abiding against the lawless," April 25 letter:
Is everywhere in Virginia going to look like the Wild West? There are more and more places in Virginia that residents with concealed weapons permits are allowed to carry a firearm. The Virginia General Assembly recently allowed citizens who possess concealed weapons permits the right to carry firearms in places that serve alcohol.
Earlier this year, there was a bill going through the General Assembly that would permit full-time professors at state universities to carry their weapons into their classrooms. In a state where a concealed carry permit can be obtained through an online test, there is no reason for bar patrons or professors to be carrying weapons of any kind at all.
This trend of Virginia lawmakers attempting to permit ordinary citizens to carry firearms in places where weapons don't belong is a dangerous one.
