    as z64 SAID....

    "those signs in the PO are usually posted near the back portion of the building by the counters, so you only see them after you're in the building, and fyi...the sign does not state the entire section of USC...the missing subsection says no carry unless " for other legal purpose"...thats the debate...is licensed carry a legal purpose under this section...who will ever know"

    I know several hummm, lets say people who know the law, that have stated that it means if you are legal on the street out in front the PO then you are good to go in the common areas for the public inside the PO building.

    But no one is going to tell you that and the Postal officals sure are not. I pointed out the missing section (C) to my local postmaster, and his reply was, "Well, I never knew that".

    So long as the feds vociferously claim relevance on the question, I maintain a PO box elsewhere (at a non-USPS facility). Works very well and sidesteps the issue until resolved in favor of sanity. In the meantime, while we're all pressing for that, I'm nobody's legal target.

    That picture can't say it any clearer.I recommend you take heed and follow the
    signs warnings as you now dealing with the Feds which means you have to go to Federal Court which tends to be way out of the way in my state over an hour to each one.Like one of the posters said this issue seems to come up at least every month.Where I live the post office has signs and metal detectors
    to me that sounds like no carry!

    I'd like to throw a monkey wrench in this.

    Subsection (d)(3) states "subsection (a) [carrying of firearms] shall not apply to the lawful carrying of firearms or other dangerous weapons in a Federal facility incident to hunting or other lawful purposes."

    Now I ask, what exactly is "other lawful purpose".

    This is doubly annoying because PA has the same provision relating to the carry at primary and secondary schools.
    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

    Yes sir - your right. I'm new to CHL and still reading. Just finish my CHL class last week and am waiting on my CHL license (I know it will takes forever )

    It would seem to mean: CHL is kosher. But, what have the test cases (in criminal court) shown? Does anybody have examples??

    Has any one you know ever set off the metal detector alarm at the post office by accident??? Any one want to be a test subject? Usually the trouble starts in the back. I wonder if they have a metal detector at the back entrance?

    Don't matter how you slice it or dice it . . . going into the Post Office carrying concealed or otherwise is AGAINST THE LAW.
    You get caught you'll probably lose your license. Is it really worth it?

    Those aren't metal detectors, those are the same things store use, so you don't steal their shipping supplies. Least the Post Office around here.

    Sure, you can. You can also be the next case prosecuted, because almost certainly you will be claimed to have been in violation of the law ... no matter the fact that the clittle clause is in their seemingly exempting "lawful use" (ie, CHL). It's not seen that way by the claimants (the gov't that's taking you to task).
