Type oDisarming good citizens (who are the only ones likely to obey the prohibition) does not make them safer.
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 where there is no problem.

 Bans in rest stops send a very uninviting message to, and endanger the lives of, interstate travelers
 The cost of providing additional security to protect everyone who has been disarmed by this regulation will be prohibitive
