Opposed to the State Agency Carry Ban

Mr. Govenor,

With your decision to enact an "emergency" ban on carrying weapons in State Agency buildings, you have created the exact conditions and "gun free zone" that are looked for by someone who is a terrorost, violent criminal, or mentally disturbed enough to enter these areas and start shooting. There has never been a shooting in a State agency building, and I will plan on holding you responsible for any injuries or deaths that occur as a result of a shooting of the unarmed citizens of these buildings because the people were not able to defend themselves. I urge you to remove the ban on carrying weapons for self defense, and also urge you to not infringe on the citizen's right to bear arms. Please extended the comment period for another 30 days.
