    Banks

    OK I was thinking the other day, I know in Idaho and many other States, going into a bank armed is not a problem. Then this popped into my mind: What about a Federal Credit Union, is it considered a Federal building?

    If they are federal employees I believe it might be. IIRC, Navy Federal Credit Union and others like it are.

    FDIC insured does not count.

    Federal Credit Union just means it was formed for federal employees. It is a members owned institution and has no connection with the government.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Yet another reason to love the GunShine State, being armed in banks is not a problem.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    The only bank(s) you would probably have problems with is the Federal Reserve Bank!

    A Credit Union is not a Federal Government facility

    NO. These are private financial institutions formed by and for the benefit of the membership, which is defined usually as a specified group of employees: e.g., Federal Employees, State Employees, Chrysler Employees, College of the Not So Smart Employees. The term Federal doesn't mean it is Federal property or that the employees are Federal.

    These are interesting institutions. I've watched one grow from a very small organization in a "hole in the wall office" to a full service
    "bank" with everything the big boys offer. Everything that is except the rip offs and trickery.
