Utterly Incomprehensible Strategy

Considering that it's a demonstrable fact that the vast majority of mass shootings occur in these so called "gun free zones", this EO seems completely counterintuitive. Worse, the terrorist attack that supposedly prompted this EO saw unarmed government employees gunned down in a gun free zone. Why bother vetting citizens for concealed carry permits, only to turn around and deny them the right to carry. I strongly oppose this order and consider the "emergency" to be dubious at best.
