Not to be overly sympathetic to federal workers, but they are people, too. And, unfortunately they are at an elevated risk of being victims of crime due to federal laws/rules that prohibit them from being armed while traveling to and from their place of work. I'm not talking about them being allowed to carry on federal property, but to just be able to leave their gun locked in their car while they're at work, or to have onsite security secure their weapon for them. To open one's garage to leave for work unarmed, only to have home invaders waiting for you would not be a pleasant thing for anyone. Coming home unarmed to face armed burglars wouldn't be either. Not to mention getting carjacked, or having a road-rage idiot attack you while you're on the road. And what if you need to stop at the store on the way home and the store is robbed while you're unarmed and helpless? All of this because the federal government has an inherent distrust of the people to lawfully possess firearms, even for their own employees.
