    My understanding is that it is. The property is not USPS property and no USPS employees.

    The Post Office isn't a private business (If it was, they'd have gone bankrupt long ago). Personally I don't think government organizations that cater to the general public should be allowed to restrict people's 2A rights, regardless of whether people "have" to go there at all. Private businesses should be able to restrict whatever they want on their property, for whatever reason they want.

    This one drove right off the original topic so if you see or have posts removed in trying to prune it back to the original post office topic don't be surprised.

    I recommend refreshing yourself on the requirements here in Activism and understanding we maintain a narrow focus and stay away from debates and shifts of topic.

    So, would that also include court rooms, jails, county, state and other government places besides the PO? (Not saying I disagree in principle ;))

    Let's start with the PO and Nat'l Park buildings before we tackle courthouses and jails.... ;)

    Court houses and jails don't "cater to the general public", so no, they would not necessarily fall under that IMO. Obviously there's very good reasons for people not to have firearms in a jail. Even the cops don't carry there. Other government organizations like the BMV, title office, county recorders office etc. etc. should definitely not be allowed to restrict civilian firearms carry.

    Court houses and jails are normally protected by armed guards. Post Offices are not.

    This needs to be lumped together with the ban on carrying in National Park buildings, both are without a doubt unconstitutional infringements on our rights. There is no reasonable argument that supports the ban on legal concealed or open carry in either of these places. It is simply one more way for gun control advocates to poke us in the eye under the false flag of "public safety".

    What am I agreeing with?

    If I go into a courthouse, and am injured by a criminal, the authorities can point to the precautions they took to prevent that. If I am injured by a criminal in a post office, what safety precautions can the authorities point to?

    You quoted me and then restated something that I had just said in a different way. I wasn't sure if you were agreeing with me or if you misunderstood what I said. Downside of having these conversations online I guess.

    I'll put it a little different way. My opinion is that government offices that allow unrestricted entry by the public, like the post office, BMV, title office, etc. etc. should not be allowed to restrict the civil rights of civilians on the premises.

    Personally, I'd prefer we gain the right for private parties to ship handguns and ammunition through the mail. That is much more important to me.
