A federal judge has ruled that a U.S. Postal Service regulation barring firearms in its parking lots violates the Second Amendment in a case brought by an Avon man and a national gun rights group.

But Senior U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch said the Postal Service has a right to bar Tab Bonidy, who filed the lawsuit, from carrying his gun into the Post Office building itself.

OK legal types, how far does this extend? Is it precedential nationwide?

The way I read it, it applies to the USPS as a whole, not just that one site.

Looks like it should set a precedent. This is huge.

This is very huge. Some Post offices don't have nearby street parking, so you either have to park and walk a long way, or plan an unarmed trip.

Since carrying I've avoided Post Offices unless I absolutely have to go in and pick something up.

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.

This still wont solve the problem of going to the post office on a motorcycle. Especially when you ride a sport bike with no lockable storage.

My Ninja 300. Well, it has a tiny lockable compartment under the rear seat, that's just about big enough to hold your registration. No way my Glock 19 is fitting in there.

Not to mention risking being charged for brandishing as you unholster a loaded gun out in the wide open so you can lock it away safely!

There is no brandishing statute in Pa. but I get your drift.

Even if this ruling covered PA it wouldn't affect me because of the rules I made for myself when I first started carrying, one of which is that I would never leave my firearm locked up in my vehicle. So I still won't be going to the PO except under extreme circumstances, simply as a personal choice.
