Carrying a registered firearm onto a Federal Facility

After mulling over the story of the Lakehurst lock-down, I decided to write this little blurb regarding another concern that caught my attention. I admit, I am not completely well-versed in the myriad of details surrounding gun laws, but it seems to me that if you have a permit to carry a firearm, then you should be allowed to carry it anywhere, especially on Federal property. After all, it is a Constitutionally protected right. Where better to exercise a national right than on Federal property, free from infringements by state and local government? Do police have to surrender their weapons at the gate? What about a Senator, or even military personnel carrying personal weapons not issued by the government? Why was the truck driver cited at all? If he declares his weapon, can he leave it at the gate for pickup upon exit without being charged with a violation of law?

Something stinks, once again.
