Seriously, if you feel unsafe after hours in the dark, implement the #1 rule of personal security - don't go there.

You have to admit that disarming yourself to ship thousands of dollars worth of guns is stupid.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

Who ships guns at the post office in the middle of the night at a PO that's in a bad neighborhood?

I'm of the understanding most gun shipments go via UPS or Fed Ex, they along with the usps offer pick up and more then one location to drop off.

If one puts their self in a dangerous situation, they have not caused the bad thing to happen but they have contributed at the very least.

I'm my experience neighborhoods don't just "get dangerous" after 5pm. Nobody is using a po box to ship guns.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

I think the tax on this bubble gum is unfair, it's only a nickel, no one will know I took it and no one will ever miss it, so I'll just take it..

I don't know about other states, but here in Utah simply posting a something that it's a gun free zone doesn't matter. The worst they can do is ask you to leave. Unless you refuse, then they can call the cops.

However, a post office is a different animal. Here in Utah you aren't allowed to carry into any federal or state government buildings. That includes the post office. I don't know the kind of punishment you might receive but I doubt they will simply ask you to leave.

That's not something I ignore. I never take my gun into the post office. That's my advice, for what it's worth.

For what it's worth, a post office is technically not a federal building. That's why they specify post office under it's own code. Also, for what it's worth, Postal Service Regulations do not specify building, they specify post office property. There is case law on the books concerning an arrest, conviction, and failed appeal of an employee that left his gun in the car, in a lock box, in the post office parking lot.
