In Texas there is a law that says a postal employee cannot carry but nobody seems to be able to figure out if a ccw person can carry in a post office. I think here it's one of those gray area's created by the law so lawyers can make money figuring out if it's legal or not.
    The law is unclear about CCW and there hasn't been a case on it yet so it could go either way. I have read the statutes and arguements and tend to think that it is legal, but then again, who want to be the test case? Rob Firriolo Esq. has an article on the subject posted on The Gun Zone that might be worth looking up. Until the law is clarified, I don't plan on carrying into the Post Office, I can't afford to be the test case.

    All the best,


    Joe

    The way I was taught here in Texas was I could not carry

    1.In a school or a sporting event but that did not include the parking lot of the school or the sporting event.
    2. A polling place
    3. A Government Court Building
    4. A racetrack
    5. The secure area of a airport.
    6. 1000 feet from a place of execution on execution day.
    7. In a bar (not to be confused with a restaurant that serves booze as long as booze is not 51% of the business)
    8. an amusement park (and there is a very narrow definition of an amusement park to 6 Flags and maybe Sea World)
    9. any place that post a sign that is both in English and Spanish and the letters are at least 1 inches and in contrasting colors from the background that states "Pursuant to Section 30.06, Penal Code (trespass by holder of license to carry a concealed handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (concealed handgun law), may not enter this property with a concealed handgun."

    Other than those 9 places you can carry anywhere in Texas to include a post office.

    he he, I don't carry in the shower either but I too have one close at hand I've thought about putting in a false tile high in the shower to hold a pistol, maybe someday

    I carry everywhere that is LEGAL, I too avoid places I can't carry.

    The only exceptions are where it's illegal to carry and one or two friends places

    Involved in an accident:

    In a pinch, most ambulances have a lockable compartment for medications. This is a good place to secure the weapon if no other recourse is available.

    I carry everywhere that's legal.

    Gladware is a nice temporary solution to that shower issue. Works for me My 1911 stays close and dry. It's just one of those little gladware plastic containers from the grocery store. Only downside is that you just have to train yourself to make a conscious effort to take it with you when you're done.

    Everywhere Legal

    I carry everywhere that I can, legally. The only places that the state restricts is buildings with metal detectors / security personell and K-12 schools.

    When I go back to my home state of MI this fall for a vacation, it's going to be hard to remember about all of the "off-limits" places....

    LUCKILY - New State Law takes it OUT of a 'defense to prosecution' and states that Hospitals, Churches, etc are no longer considered as a prohibited place UNLESS POSTED PROPERLY - which specifically puts them in the same category as everyone else...

    EVERYWHERE save the exceedingly rare time I'm in a courthouse or school.

    WA has VERY VERY few restrictions, and signs posted by businesses and whatnot hold no legal weight.

    I carry everywhere. When I get to work, I lock up the gun in my desk. I even take it out when I leave the office for lunch. When I find myself having to go into a place when weapons are either illegal, or banned by the particular business, I secure the gun in the car (I have a handgun safe that secures around the seat railing. I believe private property rights, even if I find them inconvenient. While not going to stores that prohibit handguns is an idea, Bass Pro Shops is among those, and I like the store (Bass asks that firearms be checked, and then puts on a trigger lock, and secures it in a small gun case that you're then given to carry around. The only real drag is a little lost time, and having to go to the customer service desk and wait for someone with the key to the trigger lock).
