    The local postmaster has a boss. The USPS has rules and regulations that the local folks have to adhere to. Get the boss involved.

    He's in Mass., so finding a friendly in-state Congresscritter to complain to is a long shot, but it's worth a try.

    So perhaps shipping pens, pencils, and cell phones should require a license because they "look like" zip guns?

    Sounds like a USPS mini-boss needs to get fired.

    Contact the Postmaster General. Paintball guns aren't firearms under federal law. If your local Postmaster doesn't understand the law, I'm sure the Postmaster General will be happy to explain it to him.
