This is a dangerous regulation

This proposed regulation will be playing into the hands of terrorists & violent criminals. We have had no shootings in state agencies and this prohibition on concealed handgun permit holders, some of whom have ongoing threats to their lives, is without any justification and actually endangers lives.

Disarming law abiding citizens (who are the only ones likely to obey the prohibition) does not make them safer. 

This proposed regulation is a solution in search of a 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.

This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.

Please extended the comment period for another 30 days.
