Dear Editor, 

I second the opinion of Judy Fisher in her opinion of August 28th. 

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors should enact a ban on firearms at all municipal properties and at permitted events. 

The authority to enact such a ban was given to localities by this year’s General Assembly - which was purposefully flipped to a Gun Sense Majority in 2019. 

Virginians overwhelmingly want these bans and want gun safety legislation. The FCB of Supervisors will be conducting a hearing regarding this issue on September 15th. The enactment of this law and the seven new statewide gun safety laws will show that Gun Safety Laws Save Lives.
