Government buildings are targets of terrorism. I'm responsible for my own safety.

This over reach by the lame duck governor is a breach of my rights as a citizen of the Commonweath. I've carried my handgun since 1985. My safety and security is something I do not take for granted and I will not disarm myself to do business with my state. Every government building that prevents my access because of this illegal executive order should be required to install and man a drive thru for customers like me. This is not an unreasonable requirement just a necessary expensive one. I can't remember ever hearing about a concealed handgun permit holder ever shooting up a government building so why is this temporary resident of the governors mansion allowed to do this without the approval on the legislative branches of government ?
