This regulation is dangerous to public safety

Only the General Assembly has the authority to authorize the governor to ban firearms in state agencies.  They have not granted that power.  All this ban will accomplish is creating another gun free zone were I will be vulnerable as I conduct business I have with the state.  This is reckless and lawless of the governor.

This makes no since as there is no problem to correct.  Only the law abiding citizen and state employees will be put in danger as only two mass public shootings since 1950 have occurred in gun free zones.

This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.

Please extended the comment period for another 30 days
