No to Gun Ban in State Buildings

This is a very bad idea for the safety of the citizens of the Commonwealth 1.The bad guys dont care if they are not supposed to bring firearms into any of these buildings. 2.The security that is supposed to be provided is never there at the time an attack begins and when they do arrive they have to spend a lot of time getting information and forming a plan. 3.The people that have been issued concealed carry permits have completed a background check and been approved by a judge sitting in the Commonwealth. 4. The fact that all these buildings are owened by the citizens of the commonwealth through the payment of taxes, these are our buildings at it puts us at a greater danger visiting them.


.  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. This appears that the Governor is trying to fix something that has never been broken.
