    Drop off a parcel at the FEDERAL POST OFFICE.
    Did you forget to remove your leagally carried concealed weapon???

    Are you still packing???

    How hard would it be for the govt to track down the people who answer "yes" to your question?

    They would have to work at it, and it would require the cooperation of the owner of this board, as well as the cooperation of the person's ISP. It can be done, however, I don't see this as being a very high priority for the Feds. They would have to spend a ton of money as well as man-hours to tackle such a task. Chances are they would not make any arrests and even if they did, I doubut it would ever be prosecuted. I wouldn't worry about answering 'yes' to the above question because the JBT might show up at your doorstep tomorrow.

    ;) Maybe. But then you'd have to place me at a post office at a specific time and date to be able to charge me with it, wouldn't you?

    On the other hand, I could just be bragging and embellishing. Maybe I really did leave it in the truck...

    Have I ever mentioned how stupid it would be to admit to a federal felony on a public message board?

    I read the regs once, and as I read it, if you have a "lawful purpose" your not breaking the law/rules. This also applies to school zones. Now, silly me and assumption, but if I'm not doing anything unlawful, then it must be a lawful purpose, eh?

    I'll let ya' know if they come knockin on my door.

    That'd be just like them wouldn't it. No witnesses, no victim, no threat, no freedom.

    I don't want to be the "test case" for the this particular CFR. I make it a point to be sure that I am unarmed before entering a post office.

    Packing in a post office is *not* illegal. I was curious about it, since the only restriction here in OR is "where federally prohibited." So I took to looking into where *was* federally prohibited.

    The post office was not one of them. I don't remember them all anymore, but they were basically military bases, airports (past security point), and I think the pentagon/white house. But I do know that the post office is *not* one of them.

    I'll re-do the research and post again once I can back it up, but it'll be a while since it's not a priority for me.

    I try to obey all carry laws wherever possible and this is one I wouldn't break. Heck, I even worry about the grocery store now since they all have outlet banks now and one with a new post office attached. The outlet banks are real tricky if you ask me since they only have a booth basically with a few feet of floor space. My state forbids carry in banks.

    Rikwriter got it right

    This is just a waste of bandwidth, unless they're handing out prizes for stupidest question. Sorry. There are many other questions only an idot would answer over the internet, but no need to list them all here. Yet.

    I do my level best to obey the law. I am a good guyâ„¢ and a stand-up citizen. I obey the speed limit and don't cheat on my taxes. That said, as we know all to well, there are some laws that go too far.

    Do I pack in the post office? Now, that would be illegal.

    Guns in the Post Office.

    Some years ago a person named Patrick Sherrill carried two 1911 .45s into the Edmond, OK Post Office. Of course no one else had a gun and 13 people died as a result.

    I do not plan on being murdered anywhere; even the Post Office.

    I agree with the many who say that this is something that should NEVER be discussed on a public forum. Thread closed.
