In my crystal ball I see this as being challenged in light of Heller. Don't know when or where or by whom, but I would be curious as to how someone would try to describe a neighborhood post office as a "sensitive" area justifying such a reasonable restriction.......
But I am not going to volunteer to be that test case!

The answer to this question would most likely be decided in court, so better to be safe then sorry and not carry there.

I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

Before I acquired my CCW permit I was considering a mailbox at the local post office. My CCW permit changed that forever! I'm not taking the chance.
