#2A Advocates Push Back on Gun Ban in VA State Offices

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Sev­er­al gun rights advo­cates are crit­i­ciz­ing Gov. Ter­ry McAuliffe’s move to ban con­cealed hand­guns in state-owned office build­ings.

Advo­cates a pub­lic hear­ing Wednes­day in Rich­mond said the governor’s exec­u­tive order is mak­ing the state less safe and more vul­ner­a­ble to a mass shoot­ing.

McAu­li­ffe issued an exec­u­tive order last year ban­ning the open car­ry and con­cealed car­ry of guns in most state-owned office build­ings, say­ing the move was nec­es­sary to pre­vent gun-relat­ed vio­lence.

Some gun con­trol advo­cates com­mend­ed McAuliffe’s move, but most speak­ers at Wednesday’s hear­ing opposed the mea­sure.

McAu­li­ffe, a Demo­c­rat, has been an out­spo­ken advo­cate for tighter gun con­trol mea­sures, and is often in dis­agree­ment on gun issues with the GOP-con­trolled Gen­er­al Assem­bly.
