    Defunding the armed security detail that protects Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is only fair since the governor signed an executive order in October preventing law-abiding citizens from bringing their firearms onto state property, a Virginia state senator says.

    “I’m only asking for equal protection here, basically,”Sen. Charles “Bill” Carrico(R-Galax) told CNSNews.com. “The governor talks about equal protection under the law, and that’s what I’m asking for.

    “The budget amendment that I’m having drafted is drafted under the public safety section of the budget. And it basically says that th[ere] will not be any appropriations of funding used for the governor’s executive protection unit as long as his Executive Order 50 stays in place, which basically prohibits anyone from carrying concealed weapons on the state properties.
