No to outlawing concealed or open carrying firearms State property.

I urge the govenor to reconsider his executive order in which he will make the common law abiding man a criminal for carrying a firearm on State property. The People's State House and their government buildings are to reflect the demands of the electorate, not what a single elected mans desires. All citizens of this nation are guranteed the RIGHT to possess firearms as it is written in the Constitutuion's 2nd amendment. Restricting the individual citizen's RIGHTS is ignorant, foolish and is unAmerican. The common law abiding man is not the crook, criminal nor the culpret in crimes. Enforcing restrictions of our right will only create more crime and victims that will be preyed upon.  I work in law enforcement. When on my way to work, if I stop in a conveniant store at 4am in the middle of a rural area, who do you think has my 6? A police officer? Deputy? The government?  No, the common man will come to my aid. Do the right thing governor.
