Act of Fear

Having a regulation banning law abiding citizens to hold a conceal carry permit is a fear reaction. I have not always felt comfortable around guns and have a healthy fear of harm they can do. Yet, I have come to realize that a gun (weapon) is only as dangerous as the person who handles it. People who use guns to impart harm on others do not have a healthy respect for guns or the laws that govern our country/state. With statistics that show law abiding citizens with conceal carry permits are not the problem, taking their gun rights away will only endanger the community. Only the unlawful will be able to inflict harm on others and leaving citizens unable to protect themselves.

This proposed regulation is a solution for which there is no problem.  It endangers state employees, 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This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.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 extended the comment period for another 30 days.

Respcetfully, T Patrignani
