I strongly oppose this legislation.

Banning firearms in a particular location will not make us safer.  Instead, a ban creates a "gun free" zone where predators know they can do harm without opposition. The only solution for stopping a bad person with a gun is to have a good person with a gun.  State agency building's are no different than any other place of work. The right to defend yourself applies regardless of where you are and employees should not have worry about only being able to bring a fist to a gun or knife fight. Always err on the side of FREEDOM!
