    And so? What is the solution if you lived in Colorado and wanted to carry at this post office? Or, for that matter, say, hypothetically, if you lived in Georgia?

    I know you've done it before, you conceal and you shut the hell up.

    Seems like a fairly easy solution to me.

    Another solution is not to use a Government monopoly solution, because it sucks anyway, use a private carrier, they tend to work much better, if you're going to cry about cost, realize that the post office is subsidized. Nothing wrong with UPS, FedEx, ect.

    The Rome UPS hub has a big "gun buster" sign on the door. I do labeling at home and just drop stuff off, exchange pleasantries with the counter person and leave. And I open carry.

    Yes, I have. I have also carried openly, but I tend not to do that in USPS anymore.

    If you engage in a business with a high volume of mail, you will find this to be an unworkable solution, even though I do use those when the cost is appropriate to the level of urgency.

    What will happen to a citizen who shoots an armed robber in a Post Office? Will the Federal government make an example of the defender by putting him in prison, giving him a heavy fine, or both?

    Would President Trump come to his rescue?

    Just putting this out here anticipating it will probably happen one day, and I want to be able to say I said it here first.

    Maybe it will be one of y'all. ;-)

    I haven't noticed FedEx complaining about their volume. Only junk mail comes through the mail of mine.

    A fairly useless service now.

    Some of my mailmen can't read numbers. I regularly get other folks mail clearly addressed to their address, so I wonder how much of mine goes to others as well. Good thing my important mail comes to my P.O. Box. Oh wait! LOL!

    President Trump's recent executive orders has gutted non-vetted Agency Rules, AND Federal law itself allows firearms in Post Offices for "lawful purposes".

    So, can we carry there now with no worries?

    You go ahead and try Phil. We will remember you hear here each year and I will post a $20 to your account then also.

    Do any of us really worry about carrying now? I certainly don't. To paraphrase Gunny Hartman: They play their games, we play ours.

    The most sane thing I've heard here in awhile. Don't matter though you'll catch hell from somebody.

    For the purpose of posting in a public forum, I absolutely follow all carry and other firearm related laws, as well as all other laws in general, to the best of my ability.

    Probably. I'm only stating the reality that we all deal with daily even if some of us refuse to
    acknowledge it.
