I Strongly Oppose This
The idea of limiting law abiding citizens right of self defense is wrong and misguided. If you have a Concealed Pisol Permit you should not be required to give up your ability to defend yourself in a public building, just because the state leases an office in it. To have to place your pistol in your cars trunk or leave it in your car, makes you an easy target for somelne watching. Statistics show CCP holders are almost never commiting a crime with their pistol. But IF someone watches you take it off and leave it, not only are you now unarmed and unable to defend yourself, someone could break into your car and now be armed, with your legal firearm. O don't believe there is any problem with concealed carry permit owners committing a crime so there is no known need for this Governor to want to restrict our right to carry.
