Stop welcoming criminals to prey on victims on state property

This action by the governor is lacking any semblance of logic. Under this executive order, a criminal can walk into an ABC store and rob it at gunpoint (not a far-fetched situation) without fear that anyone inside will be able to defend themselves. Sexual predators will be able to feel comfortable attacking someone coming out of a state agency building at night because they know the victim will not have a firearm to defend themselves. The governor would rather have sexual predators feeling comfortable than law-abiding citizens feeling comfortable. I stand with law-abiding citizens, not with the governor and sexual predators.
