I oppose this regulation it endangers public safety

Terrorists, violent criminals , and the criminally insane DO NOT care about laws and regulations. We have had no shootings in state agencies and this prohibition on those with a concealed handgun permit, is entirely without any justification and needlessly and recklessly endangers state employees and the public.

This regulation is about Disarming good citizens. It's gun control not safety
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This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.

Please extended the comment period for another 30 days.
