I read somewhere that depending on your state, the post office is okay for carry.
For the life of me, I cannot find the information.
Any thoughts from the group?
ALL US post office's are NO CARRY ZONES!! Carry in one of them and you are not a LEO of some kind and it's do not pass go. Go right to jail.. There are also Huge signs on all the doors that say no weapons of any kind (other then pocket knifes i think).
I spoke with a USPS Inspector contact of mine (The USPS personnel that carry guns.), and he said that it would be wise to secure your firearm in your vehicle. Another item that folks commonly overlook when entering a post office are blades over 2" in length. He advised that I secure my CC firearm in my vehicle, this would be acceptable as it's not "on my person". Though the law does cover "on government property", he said that that's basically to "cover their 6". The only time he's seen folks charged with having a firearm secured in their vehicle while it's in the parking lot is when there were accomplices waiting in the vehicle.
Basically, if you make a "reasonable" effort to not violate the Federal Laws while on Federal property, they won't go looking for stuff to nail you with and won't bust your chops.
Same question came up on another forum. Here's what I posted.
