Proposed 'Gun Free' Zones dangerous

The proposed 'gun free' zones set up by the Governor in state agencies makes no common sense.  Almost all of mass shootings now occur in these gun free areas.  Why should more of these area be created when they actually perpetuate and encourage the problem?  NO ONE should feel safe in a gun free zone.  Those with permits should be allowed to carry for their own protection [and others protection].  Remember, the bad guys don't care whether it's legal or not. Furthermore, if this type of ban is to be law, it should go through the legislative process and not be forced upon the people by an executive action.  This smacks of government over-reach and appears grossly unconstitutional.  If the Governor wants 'common sense' gun control, this is not it!
