A Naive and Dangerous Idea

Yet another attempt to put an agenda ahead of the public good.

There have been no examples of law abiding gun owners/concealed carry permit holders abusing concealed carry in government buildings to commit violent crimes. The very fact a terrorist or mass murderer is planning to commit a mass shooting makes it ignorant to assume they'll respect a gun free zone. This has been proven time and time again, and yet those with an agenda to ban guns despite the constitution, public good and common sense ignore facts in favor of fantasies.

What this regulation would do by definition is take away individuals ability to defend themselves. For the aspiring terrorist or mass murderer, it provides a place to go where they know that law abiding citizens won't be able to defend themselves.

I 100% oppose this regulation and urge others to do the same.
