This regulation is dangerous to public safety.Off-duty police officers are also prevented from carry

Only law abiding citizens will obey this regulation. Terrorists, violent criminals, and the criminally insane will disobey the regulation.

More importantly the Governor has no authority for this regulation. If the General Assembly wanted the Governor to have such power, they would have granted it to him explicitly, as is required constitutionally. Therefore, The ban won’t hold up in court, due to lack of authority by the Governor.

This proposed regulation is a solution for which there is no problem. It endangers state employees, law abiding citizens, and the innocent by making state buildings a safe zone for terrorists, criminals, and the criminally insane to conduct their evil and savage actions. Furthermore, off-duty police officers are also prevented from carrying.

This regulation should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.

Please extended the comment period for another 30 days. Thank you.
