    Almost. If you are not carrying you do NOT have to inform that you have a permit.

    28.425f Concealed pistol license; possession; disclosure to police officer; violation; penalty; seizure; forfeiture; "peace officer" defined.

    Sec. 5f.

    ...snip...

    (3) An individual licensed under this act to carry a concealed pistol and who is carrying a concealed pistol and who is stopped by a peace officer shall immediately disclose to the peace officer that he or she is carrying a pistol concealed upon his or her person or in his or her vehicle.

The entrance to the post office is shared with another business. So, what part of the parking lot and sidewalk would be considered Post Office Property? Would it be immediately infront of the post office and if so, how far out does that extend? 10 feet, 20 feet?

    What is everyones take on this?
    If the PO is in a strip center with a common parking lot then the only area prohibited once you step inside the PO's door. The sidewalk is common ground and is not prohibited. Parking would only be prohibited if the PO had dedicated parking spaces...rare occurrence I would think.

    None. Unless there are parking spaces marked for Post Office Use Only. Right up to the door should be strip mall property, not under the control and charge of the US Postal Service.

    It's pretty clear cut. No fed facilities. Can't carry at the VA, Post Office, IRS or any fed gov't office.

    I mentioned this to my Captain, and the Major was just behind me. They agreed and told me of a guy he arrested for exactly that reason. You are right, Constmantx. For everyone else, I wouldn't consider it, even though I'm LEO. I'm not willing to be that other guy.

    Thank you BC1 for the one and only answer that means anything. Many of you sound like washerwomen gossiping with measurements and a little here and a little there and magic property lines etc etc etc. For heavens sake you are CC and you probably have never been strip searched or car searched as you drove your car into the post office parking lot. It is 100% certain that you cannot CC in the post office proper. So you take it off BEFORE you enter their parking lot if you are going into the office, lest some idiot know it all calls the neighborhood swat team on you, and you leave it in place if all you are doing is dropping a package at one of the drive by mail boxes. Enough already--how simple can this be?

    Hey m1: Some people have too much time on their hands and in this stupid country you can sue for about anything anytime. Absolutely ridiculous and a waste of time. Too bad there are not penalties for losers in law suits brought by them like a penalty and paying for the defense lawyers--it would end frivolous lawsuit crap, but we all know who really run this country-lawyers----they make the laws, they run the government and they are the judges--talk about a monopoly and a very sick society.
