Weapons ban in public buildings.
 

If 3 or 4 weapons trained citizens had guns in some of the horrible mass shootings situations of the past few years, the outcome of the shootings might have been limited greatly. It takes a well trained, armed citizen, who has the nerve to shoot to kill a terrorist, but if some are available, why would you want to make it impossible to try to protect their own security, and certainly the security of maybe dozens of others? This does not make sense.

Legal, registered gun carriers are the safest, most law abiding citizens in the state. They have been vetted by state courts and have been certified by professional weapons trainers. Again, why would you want to limit the ability of these people to protect themselves and others?
