Strongly oppose

There has been zero need of any type of regulation like this to date. There is no history of concealed carry in "executive branch" offices being an problem in any locality in the Commonwealth.  This is a regulation for regulation sake, not solving any problem.

This only serves to cause law abiding, concealed carriers to forfeit a right specifically outline in both the US and Commonwealth Constitutions. 

This proposed regulatory action should be rejected and further attempts by the executive branch of the Commonwealth should be harshley rebuked.  The LAW in the Commonwealth does not permit the Executive to pull out his "pen" to try and bypass the will of the people and the Legislature.  The LAW does not have these exclusions in it, it is not within the enumerated powers of the executive branch to create them.
