According to the many panicked, the sky is falling, the world will stop spinning, etc., news reports about not having the Idaho “Star” card I have questions. The article on Oct. 6 states I cannot “access federal buildings.”

Does that include a Social Security office, Post Office, BLM, USDA, USFS, etc? If an agency rents an office inside a building I cannot enter the office? Will I go to jail for contempt because I cannot enter the courtroom to answer charges, file paperwork the government demands, etc.? Serve on jury duty? Enter a military base to watch an air show, parade, demonstration? All federally run organizations and buildings are going into lockdown? 18 YEARS after 9/11? This makes us safer? Ridiculous…
