    How well posted is your Post Office

    The thread about the guy OCing in a PO had several reference to how well or not POs are posted. There's obviously no great consistency. I'd like to hear how your PO is posted. Please keep this to just descriptions of actual USPS facilities, not the contracted outlets. And let's not divert into the issue of POs being posted being an infringement. We already know that.

    So here goes:

    My town's one PO has two entrances, one directly to the lockbox area, and another into the lobby/counter area. Both open into the same general walkway across the front of the building. There are no signs on the outside of the building.

    Upon entering the lockbox side, you will see no, nada, zero signage. If all you do is go to your box and depart, you get no notice.

    Using the other entrance, there's a smallish sign on the wall as you head toward the lockboxes. If you turn the other way towards the customer counter, you will not likely see the sign.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    I have yet to see a Post Office posted anywhere - MA, NJ, CT, or AZ.

    Isn't it well-known that you can't carry guns into POs, sorta like income tax returns are due in April?

    To us, yes it's well known. To others, not so much.

    I've met a few people that have had no desire past meeting the bare minimum requirements to get their carry permit etc. that have no clue about the actual laws regarding carry.

    Oddly enough, it seems that the people that would have no clue about the PO make the erroneous assumption that all banks are federally off limits.

    Not posted on entry doors. Posted on inside wall that one would most likely (if at all )see when exiting the building. None the less of where they post it you will be arrested and charged. The feds have no sense of humor.

    No sign on the door; one posted on the wall which you can see when leaving the Customer Service Counter, (or when standing in line... ).

    Nothing posted in our local rural post office about firearms, if there is, it's not posted in a place for all to see.

    I bet it is posted in the employee rest room... LOL

    Because the post office is still tied to federal laws they do not have to post it anywhere. They expect all of us to know all the federal laws. And they always win because the 'black robes" will give you the catch all phrase. "Ignorance to the law is no excuse". Don't ya just love dem dare feds!!!

    How well posted are schools? What about parades? Gubmint buildings? Athletic events?

    The onus is one you to know the law. Signs are meaningless. We know the average JQP can't read.
