This makes no sense.
This proposed regulation will have the opposite of the intended 
affect 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.
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 
This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.
