I OPPOSE this regulation

I OPPOSE banning lawfully carried firearms in state agency buildings.  Concealed weapon license holders are statistically the most law-abiding citizens in every state.  I pay my fees, I have submitted a fingerprint card, I have had background checks.  I have been lawfully carrying for over 34 years.  These types of bans do nothing to stop criminals and impose onerous restrictions on law-abiding people.  There never has been a problem to my knowledge.  Don't create a problem by changing the rules.
