Disarming good citizens ( who are the only ones likely to obey the prohibition ) does not make them safer. Importantly the Governor has no authority for this regulation. If the General Assembly wanted the Governor to have such power,they would have granted it to him explicitly,as is required constitutionally. This proposed regulation is a solution for which there is no problem. It endangers state employes,law abiding citizens,and the innocent by making state buildings a safe zone for terrorists,criminals,and the criminally insane to conduct their evil and savage actions. This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.Please extend the comment period for 30 days.All but two public massacres since 1950 had been committed by criminals and terrorists in "gun free zones" which is exactly what this regulation creates.
