STRONGLY OPPOSE
 

This reguation is unconstitutional, as it is one of the many violations of the 2nd amendment. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and this is most certainly an infringement.

This regulation will do absolutely nothing to prevent criminals from commiting acts of evil and terrorism, and will in fact aid them as they will have less resistance from law abiding citizens and off duty police officers.

Does the Governor fear his own police officers? Does the behavior of police officers became deranged when off duty? When a police officer finishes his shift, does he suddenly become evil, requiring such a law that bans him from carrying off duty in a state building? To think so would be absolute nonsense, so why would the Govenor want to disarm them?

The truly deranged will not be turned off from commiting acts of violence by a simple regulation such as this one. What will deter criminal acts, is an armed citizenry.

This regulation should absolutely not be approved.
