I will be in danger when entering a government building!

If approved and I enter a newly restricted government area, I am putting my life in the hands of a terrorist (radical muslim or other extremist), crazy, or illegal gun toten criminal without a recourse to retaliate.  An active shooter will have the preplanned edge to take us out.  in a gun free zone. The governor has his authorized gun carrying taxpayer paid employees to eacort him but not the average citizen.  Gun violence go markedly down when legal gun ownership increases. A vast majority of homicides occur in gun restricted cities compared to the rurual areas where gun ownship abides.  This is a liberal knee-jerk reaction that will result in placing law abidding citizens in increased danger.  I have a "Fight Terrorism" Virginia State Tag on my vehicles because I remember "9-11."
