Don't Disarm Women in Government Buildings
 

I am a 69 years home maker and I feel much safer since I got a concealed handgun permit six years ago. Disarming good citizens does not make us safer. 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.

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This regulations should not be approved and the emergency regulation withdrawn.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.
