The sentence if convicted is no less than 1 year in prison and a fine. Is 2 minutes worth the risk.

Thanks for the replies. Actually I am following the law to the letter(pun intended).

So no "knife free" zone there....

Plus when you break the law no matter how good your intentions might be you lowering yourself to the level of a criminal. When you roll up to the post office and there is a dangerous crowd hanging around leave. Your mail will be there when the post office is open and the loiterers are gone.

Federal Regulations – Title 39 – which is named “Conduct on Postal Property” says “No person while on postal property may carry firearms, other dangerous or deadly weapons, or explosives, either openly or concealed, or store the same on postal property, except for official purposes.”

Your PO Box is on postal property. Come to think of it, you will probably park on postal property, too.

Do you carry concealed, walk in, get your key out, get your mail, and walk back to your vehicle knowing that you could be arrested for carrying on P O prperty, or do you take the chance on the criminals all knowing that you will not be armed going into get your mail at 11pm?

Of course only politically correct answers please...
Good question, my answer is move somewhere that you dont have to worry about that! If thats out in the boonies, you might actually get the additional bonus of delivery to your mailbox (not likely a Gun Free Zone unless you make it one)!

Soldiers stay in war zones because they have orders, citizens not in our military dont have to stay places where people act like animals! Move away from the city and move somewhere that you can pee off the deck without attracting attention, less stress is better!

I've always thought this was stupid. Especially when I was working. I'd have to park at the gas station across the street and unload and lock my gun up. Then grab the other six guns in the car and head into the post office. Never made much sense to me.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

*sigh* If only it was that easy. Eventually that's my goal, but there is a lot of stuff that has to go right first.

The people that want to disarm us look at conversations like this and see, they won't even go check the mail without a gun, they are willing to risk federal prosecution, possible jail time, a felony record which would strip them of their right to carry/own a gun to check mail..
While this may sound or feel like a patriotic thing, to everyone else it sounds like un warranted risk.
Then to too it off, we have a respected member of our own community in C3Shooter telling you this is a bad Idea and an even worse idea to post about in an open to anyone forum.. Yet here we are, proving them right..

Guys, ladies.. Do what you wanna do, but at least be smart about it, your actions reflect on others.
This is a kin to pot smokers posting pictures of weed in social media... They are getting busted behind that.. Do you not think once LE gets the green light they won't do the same thing to gun owners.

You may walk in with your weapon and your concealed carry permit...but when you walk out you may only have handcuffs instead.
