|Action||Promulgation of new regulation banning concealed firearms in executive branch agency offices|
|Comment Period||Ends 1/27/2016|
The only solution to a criminal with a gun is a citizen upholding public safety with a gun. In incidents of multiple murders with a gun the sooner the fire is returned the fewer lives are lost, every time. These murderers are all too aware of how long it takes for police to arrive. It is impossible to hire sufficient police to reduce the response time on what are by nature rare incidents. Having an armed and trained citizenry to augment our highly trained police is a reasonable solution provided for in the US Constitution.
This proposed regulation would have the opposite of the intended effect by playing into the hands of terrorists, violent criminals, and the criminally insane. We have had no shootings in state agencies and this prohibition on those with a concealed handgun permit, some of whom have active and ongoing threats to their lives, is entirely without any justification and needlessly and recklessly endangers innocent lives.
Such a dangerous regulation raises question about the motivations of those who would put this forward. This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.
Please extended the comment period for another 30 days.
