Rand Paul to push ahead with guns in post office proposal
Quote:Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) plans to take his fight to allow some customers to take guns into post offices to the Senate floor, his office said Thursday.

The Senate Homeland Security Committee on Thursday voted down, by a 9 to 6 vote, Paul’s proposal to allow people to carry guns on postal property as long as it was consistent with local law.

The committee later cleared a broader postal bill that included other gun-related provisions, but Paul’s office said he’ll seek to get his wider proposal included when or if the postal bill gets full Senate consideration.

During Thursday’s markup, Paul noted his idea was backed by a number of gun rights groups – including the Gun Owners of America, the National Association for Gun Rights and the National Rifle Association.

He cast his proposal as a way to protect the Second Amendment rights of postal customers that were following concealed carry laws in their state.

“I think what we don't want is people to be caught up inadvertently who are trying to obey the law, and then all of a sudden are going to jail for something they never intended to do wrong,” Paul said.

“I see nothing unique about the post office that makes me to believe that there will somehow be more violence committed in a post office than anywhere else,” the Kentucky senator, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, later added.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Besides which, wasn't it postal employees doing the shooting? Just ban those folks.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW
