Doyle: You statement is not exactly true. You cannot carry into a Federal Court house, you cannot (at the present time) carry into a PO (different section of the law) But there are exemptions:
18 USC 930
(d) Subsection (a) shall not apply to—
(1) the lawful performance of official duties by an officer, agent, or employee of the United States, a State, or a political subdivision thereof, who is authorized by law to engage in or supervise the prevention, detection, investigation, or prosecution of any violation of law;
(2) the possession of a firearm or other dangerous weapon by a Federal official or a member of the Armed Forces if such possession is authorized by law; or
(3) the lawful carrying of firearms or other dangerous weapons in a Federal facility incident to hunting or other lawful purposes.
I talked to a NCNP person and she said, but the administrative code is what they go by...guess what...the exemption is in the administrative code too.
