Lawsuit Filed Against Post Office Gun Ban
Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- If there’s anything that makes a concealed carry permit holder upset, its criminal safezones.
A criminal safezone is where only criminals are safe, because armed self defense is banned. That’s why the National Association for Gun Rights has filed a lawsuit against the United State Postal Service.
The U.S. Postal Service uses bureaucratic rules to ban your right to carry in a Post Office, and that’s important, even if you don’t carry concealed –- it’s the camel’s nose under the tent.
You see, the U.S. Postal Service claims citizens don’t have the right to self defense in Post Offices.
There’s one problem with that claim: it isn’t true.
The law cited by the Post Office creates an exception for “lawful carrying of firearms” for “other lawful purposes.” On top of that, both the Heller and McDonald Supreme Court decisions guarantee “the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.”
Sounds like it should be simple, right?
Well, no government bureaucracy ever gave up power without a fight.
And, given the anti-gun nature of the Obama administration, we know they aren’t going to instruct the Postal service properly.
So I assumed you’d want your organization to act… and quickly.
Do you support this lawsuit on behalf of law-abiding citizens for their self defense?
I sincerely hope so. I know, personally, it infuriates me to be disarmed just because I’m picking up my mail.
But imagine how Debbie Bonidy feels. Debbie and Tab Bonidy live in the mountains of Colorado, and are the plaintiffs –- along with the National Association for Gun Rights –- against the Postal Service.
Debbie Bonidy doesn’t like going anywhere without her personal handgun, which is why she went through the trouble of being trained, proving she’s law-abiding, and getting her concealed carry permit. Not only does the U.S. Postal Service say she can’t carry that handgun for self protection in a Post Office, but they arrogantly claim she can’t even leave it in her car when in their lot.
If we win this lawsuit, that outrageous policy will change in every Post Office in America.

P.S. I hope you will support our lawsuit against the Postal Services’ ban on self-defense.
We’ve already filed the suit against the Post Office, and if we win, they’ll be forced to allow legally authorized citizens to carry in Post Offices across the country.
The National Association for Gun Rights was founded in 2001 to serve as a grassroots gun rights group focusing on building state-level gun rights groups and lobbying for pro-gun federal legislation. Brown has been a gun lobbyist for more than 17 years. Visit: www.nationalgunrights.org
