I strongly oppose this regulation

I am very much against the proposed restrictions on legally carrying firearms in State agency facilities.  This negatively impacts both ordinary citizens and State employees by limiting their ability to defend themselves while going about their normal business.  This creates an even more dangerous situation where firearms must be stored in vehicles while visiting impacted offices.  This danger comes both from potential theft, and from the inherent aspects of repeatedly removing and holstering the firearms during the visit.
