Wrong direction!
Prohibiting firearms in state buildings is a mistake, and takes us in the wrong direction by putting individuals at risk to become another crime statistic. Criminals don't follow laws. What is someone to do while they are in one of our state buildings and someone decides to start shooting people, or stabbing people? I myself carry open or concealed everywhere current law allows. I avoid, and do not patronage any place that does not allow me to carry. I have served nearly 10 years in the army, and did not return home to see the state I love take away my right to defend not only myself, but the people around me because our governor wants to look good for the news cameras, and gun grabbing liberals.
