Emergency State-Agency Gun Ban

I absolutely object to this unreasonable and un-necessary gun ban. With numerous instances of criminals, terroists and criminally insane targeting "gun free" zones this proposed ban would be another opportunity for these people to murder defenseless citizens. Such a ban would be entirely without justification. Disarming law abiding citizens will do nothing to improve safety but would have the opposite effect. Terrosists and criminal have proven they can build bombs, and  they can obtain knives; can you prevent this? You absolutely cannot ban all weapons. I implore you not to disarm law abiding citizens. Such a ban is a "knee-jerk", politically correct solution for which there is no problem. Please exercise common-sense and practical action on this proposed ban, deny approval and withdraw this "emergency regulation".

And please extend the comment period for another 30 days. Thank you.
