I thoroughly enjoyed the talk with Special Agent Corbin Rowe. With all of his experiences with this formidable agency, I think he provided a well-rounded perspective to his audience on what it is like being a part of this great organization.

Excellent town hall. Very well-conducted by the panel. I am very comfortable with the way the committee appears to have a great plan for implementation of the new law. My primary safety concern is the security of any guns in the dorms. Students are in and out of dorm rooms and if a legal carrier does not secure their firearm, someone else could take it/steal it/borrow it pretty easily. Not sure of the solution, but I think this issue needs to be addressed to the greatest extent possible. Thanks for what you are doing. Bill Hyman
