This regulation endangers state employees

As there is no precedence for this action, no incidents of terrorism in our state buildings to date, all you are doing is making our state buildings attractive for someone who wishes to perpetrate evil.  This action sends a message to our state emplyees that you do not value their safety.  I am sure you are protected at all times by armed security yet would you deny secuirty to our emplyees.  This is a demonstration of poor leadership. What happened to taking care of our emplyees and being good stewards of the resources afforded to us?  In addition, your actions are a thinly veiled attempt at banning firearms and disarming the law abiding.  Do you not realize that the 'good guys' are the ones that will suffer.  I believe you are overstepping your authority and using your position to bully your constituents.
