    Info on carry in SSA office?

    I need to stop by our local Social Security office today, to pick get some info on disability benefits for my wife.

    The TCHA website chart http://www.txchia.org/nftxcary.htm#fnt states it falls under Federal property guideline, but I can't find the info on federal property other than post offices and such.


    Thanks,
    B.

    Social security offices are off limits. One of the few places posted here.

    SSA is a govt. entity and their buildings even those open to the public are govt. installations, which is unlawful to bring firearms on to or in to.
    When it comes to Federal govt. grounds and buildings it's simple to know if it's okay to carry or not. If the location is not an allowed and posted hunting preserve then do not carry there.

    If it is a "Federal Government" anything - especially buildings, general rule of thumb is it's off-limits.

    Govt Building...All Standing Sub-Structures....Parking Lots...Open and enclosed.... And yes this as well...The Four Corners......sidewalks......of the Federal Building and or office.

    Just the last one is not strictly enforced unless you are standing for a select period of time.

    The key is that it's a Federal government facility. All are off limits.

    For other government entities, state and local rules apply.

    My wife is the manager of the SSA office here and at least once a week someone comes in with a gun and/or knife. At the local office they are asked to remove the gun/knife from the building (lock it in your car or take it home), then the person will be allowed to return. Since local office policy can vary, I'd recommend NOT bringing a weapon into the building in case your local office may not be as understanding as the one here.

    Also, some offices have metal detectors and others don't, so trying to sneak a gun in may or may not work. There is a 6', 250lb armed guard here that greets you at the door so I wouldn't make an issue of trying to get a weapon past him! :

    Silly, isn't it? Public businesses, buildings, property ... and yet, the public is criminalized for entry with the means of self-defense. Twisted. But, the way it is, for now.

    Our local SSA office is so strict they would not allow me entry with a cell phone on my person. Had to go back and lock it in the truck. Could conceal a bomb or other weapons according to the very pleasant guard.

    Many Federal, State and Local entities seem to be located in leased locations. The fact that these offices co-mingle with other non-restricted businesses creates the possibility of putting you in a difficult situation. What if, for the purpose of this discussion, the SSA office is located in room 301 on the 3rd floor of an otherwise public building?

    I would think the rule might only apply to that limited space.
