    new Post Office case

    Here's one to watch. Behold, an actual pro-2A op-ed piece in the Denver Post!

    "Editorial: Postal gun ban should be tossed
    We're glad a federal judge will allow a lawsuit by an Avon couple with concealed-carry permits."

    P.O. won't deliver to my house so I have to pick it up at the Post Office, a P.I.T.A... more so because I have to disarm.

    I am hopefull, but not confident the courts will strike down this restriction.

    Why would you need a gun in a post office? No one's gonna rob it; everyone knows they're broke.

    I am more concerned about the issues associated with unnecessary handling to disarm to go in there. For the PO to be declared 'sensitive' someone must have been smokin sometin good.

    This is so true, when is the last time that a Post Office was actually held up/robbed?

    A loooong time ago, I think. The Postal Inspection Service has about a 99% conviction rate.
    John Dillenger robbed a country store that had a Post Office in it and drew a chalk line around the Postal area. He left a note for the Postal Inspectors stating that "We did NOT cross this line", because he was afraid that THEy would go after him.

    Wasn't there a shooting, maybe intended robbery, in a small postal office a few months ago? (Don't have time to look it up right now, it might have been a contract office, not actual Postal property.)
    Here it is, Henning TN, 18 Oct 2010. (OK, more than a few months.)

    But, when was the last time a Post Office was robbed by a licensed CCW permit holder?

    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.

    Perhaps the firearms restriction in post offices is aimed (no pun intended) more toward their own employees since the term "going postal" originated a number of years ago when it was becoming common place for disgruntled postal employees to walk into their station with an Uzi and open fire on their fellow employees.

    Back then, Post Office flags flying at half-mast meant they were hiring

    I always thought it was because of this reason myself. Apparently the laws against murder and being in possession of a weapon during a crime were not strong enough that they thought this would fix it.

    No one can "go Postal" anymore. Guns are not allowed in the PO.

    I think it would be a good thing..... it's a pain to disarm, etc. I won't park in the parking lot , but have to park on the street by the Post Office so I'm not on Fedl Property with a gun.
