That is a good question. A darn good question. The Supremes view your car as an extension of your home. If you are legally qualified to own a gun you can legally carry in your home. On the other hand, many states do make a distinction between the the brick and mortar home and the four wheel "home" when it comes to firearms. Then comes the omniscient postal service that says no way, no how if it's on their property. I don't know the answer, but it's a helluva question.
Did you know that the post office vehicle is the only vehicle that doesn't have to yield to stopped school buses?
