More nonsense out of Virginia. their contact page; ***************************************

Ms. Hayden,

I am sorry, but you are uninformed. This IS the Governor's lane......

What ordinances the City of Virginia Beach Police and the Larkspur Middle school employ to "determine" this incident was an involvement with a firearm, a child and the school - are predicated and based entirely on Virginia State Laws.... as in every other State of the Union.

For a City within the State of Virginia to redefine the word of the English language such as "firearm" to include a TOY gun... for the City of Virginia Beach to redefine the meaning of "school" to include the private property of this Child's parents (the Child's home) means the State of Virginia allows the City of Virginia Beach to re-write existing Virginia State LAW to include these descriptors.....

Funny, I have never heard of such a thing before. A Governor allowing a City to re-write existing State Laws for their own political agenda - without Statewide Citizens allowed a vote or your State Legislative input.

Sorry Ms. Hayden, but this is clearly Governor McDonnell's lane to address and I urge you to bounce this back for him to address it. Please be advised.... this is all over Social Media - and the responses I am seeing are exactly what I am writing to you - OUTRAGE!

And Ms. Hayden, I know it is confusing and I do not mean to sound like I am attempting to chew on you, quite the opposite.... but about twenty years ago they started putting the name "Aubrey" in the baby books as a girls name... The primary problem is.... for the past one thousand five hundred years (1,500).... it has been a mans name.

Governor McDonnell,


Sir, reading all of the news releases about this incident pains me... for the Virginia Beach Police department and the Larkspur middle school administration to defy logic and law - claiming a TOY is a firearm and using this as the grounds to suspend this child from school is inexcusable. The Nation is outraged! How can you allow this nonsense in Virginia? And from appearances, the Virginia Beach Police and Larkspur middle school administration are demonizing an innocent child who does not understand "gun control" or anything else along those lines of political discussion! The boy was playing!!!!!!! Why is your State allowing a child to be harmed for the promotion of a POLITICAL AGENDA???????????
