Executive order banning firearms in Executive Offices places me in jeapordy.

The Executive Order banning firearms in Executive Offices places my life in jeapordy.  I am a former undercover drug investigator, having served on a Virginia Drug Task Force, and collaberatively with the DEA.  In the 1980's and 1990's, we had a really good run with the outlaw motorcycle clubs, which resulted in over 150 felony convictions of over 50 offenders.  Many of these felons recieved sentences in excess of 20 years in state and federal prisons.  These felons are now out, and on the streets.  I have encountered two of them in the last couple of years.  One of them immediately recognized me and made a threatening statement, while the other continued to look at me for several minutes. 

This ban in executive offices restricts my right to self preservation, and I strongly oppose it.
