Thought this was ironic...(related to firearms in post office)
#1
So I had to go to the post office today for work. Of course I was carrying, so like the inferior human being the government sees me as, I pull over on the street, put my four ways on, unholster and secure my firearm, get out and lock my doors, and take the 500 foot walk of shame to the post office. You know, just for good measure, because I obviously can't be trusted with a gun in the post office.

Then in one of the greatest moments of irony I've ever experienced, I looked down at the envelope I was holding, and this is what I saw:

...okay so I actually took the picture when I was still in the car, but the story flows better the way I typed it above. Big Grin

We really gotta do something about this law.

I agree with that. I just don't see the point in not allowing "weapons" in a federal building.

I understand safety and security. But the old argument about criminals not following the law to begin with, coupled with the fact that I don't see why government employees should be "superior" to anyone else.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin

At least at a place like a courthouse, they secure it with metal detectors, and there are armed guards on duty at all times. At the post office, there is NOTHING stopping a crazy guy from going....well, postal.

It was my understanding that one of the primary motivations for the law was aimed at government employees in particular. They're not excluded from that statute.

.... and sad. But that is the way things are, look at Philly for example, the birthplace of freedom so to speak and yet there are more restrictions on carry there.

Give it a few more months, they will be belly up. I mean lets face it, how many times can you bail out an organization that hemorrhages money.

Are we talking about the Post Office or General Motors?

With the current moves to restore States Rights, I think that the idea that any Federal facility should be forced to honor the laws of the host state for items such as this. The employees and customers of the Federal agencies such as the Post Office are State citizens and there should not have another custom set of rules applied. After all, we are the true property owners of State and Federal property.

Good point. While I don't think this would come to fruition any time soon, I do like the idea.

My wife was at a recent GunLawyer001 workshop when she noticed the Title 18 book. She also knows there are many, many other books like that just for PA - let alone federal and local laws. At that point it hit her and me just how true the statement is:
