Banning Concealed Carry Firearms in Executive Offices

This is one more effort to restrict the legitimate rights of innocent people in order to appear to be doing something about the misues of firearms by thugs and other criminals. Those of us, including law enforcement officers, who legally carry firearms concealed, have passed stringent background checks and take additional training in order to exercise rights guaranteed to us under the 2nd Amendment. Criminals, thugs, and terrorists BY DEFINITION will not obey such laws. Moreover, banning concealed carry weapons creates the one things these miscreants love: another "gun free zone" in which criminals and terrorist are thus assured of being able to murder the innocent with very little initial consequences.
