    Question Federal Laws for No Carrying?

    I know the State Laws for NO carrying areas in Idaho are:

    No schools
    No Jails
    No Courts

    But were do we find Federal Laws for NO carrying areas?
    All I have found are:

    All Federal Property
    Federal Parks
    Post Offices
    Military Installations
    etc.

    What does etc. mean? Maybe Banks?
    And all Federal Property? National Forrest?

    Not really applicable to your question.

    http://www.findlaw.com/casecode/#federal
    with links to the U.S. Code and to the Code of Federal Regulations, among others. Has a good Search capabiolity in the CFR link.

    This last one should be the exact section you’re looking for. But keep in mind, the Code of Federal Regulations will apply specifically to agencies and facilities even when the U.S. Code may not mention a place or situation.

    http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/h...0----000-.html
    TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 44 > § 930. Possession of firearms and dangerous weapons in Federal facilities.

    Here in PA, we are not allowed to carry in state parks.

    When you say "Federal Parks" you have to be a little more clear. You are allowed to carry concealed or openly with or without a CHL (as long as your state allows it) in National Forests and National Grasslands but NOT again NOT in National Parks unless you are hunting or sport shooting at an allowed area.

    ETA: For instance I can open carry with no CHL In Roosevelt National Forrest or the Pawnee Grasslands in Colorado and Medicine Bow National Forest in Wyoming.
    But as soon as I go into Estes or Rocky Mountain National park you arent allowed to carry. You can have it in your truck or car, but not on your hip.
    Although, my safety is more important than these laws IMHO.

    Banks are privately owned, so it could be a bank by bank policy. Just because they're insured by the government for their deposits (up to 100K) means nothing. Just 'cause it says Federal doesn't necessarily connotate a connection.

    National Forests are usually okay, the exception might be during hunting season.

    All other "real" federal property is a no-no.

    Post offices are legal to carry in as long as you are allowed by state law and are there for legal purposes. I carry every single time I step foot in a PO. Especially after the recent shooting in Commiefornia.

    See also http://www.thegunzone.com/rkba/rtc-usps.html for a more in depth look at the law and that intimidating PO poster that don't mean squat!

    Post Office Carry

    You might look at this first. I don't recall if it is Idaho STATE law, it is not Federal Law. This is somewhat dated info.

    Well, that's what I get for not reading all the posts before responding.

    usc 18 930(d)(3) has an interesting clause. I suggest that you read it and write your State Attorney General. Ask him to clarify the "other lawful purposes" clause. Depending upon his clarification, you may be able to carry in Post offices. I am not a lawyer and strongly suggest that you do not carry in post offices until you have written clarification that you can (from the State Attorney General)
