|Action||Promulgation of new regulation banning concealed firearms in executive branch agency offices|

I strongly oppose this Executive Order and regulation and urge that it be rescinded. There is no rationale and no evidence supporting the concept that holders of a concealed handgun permit represent a danger to either state employees or the general public. This regulation will only increase the danger to the public by creating a "gun-free" zone which serves only to create an inviting target for criminals who, by definition, care nothing about the law - and particularly for regulations such as this. This regulation should be removed and the EO withdrawn.
