Government buildings are targets of terrorism, why make it easier for terrorists to succeed

All but two of the public massacres since 1950 had been committed by criminals and terrorists in “gun-free zones,” which is exactly what this regulation creates!   Off-duty police officers are also prevented from carrying.  Bans in rest stops send a very uninviting message to, and endanger the lives of, interstate travelers.
