Most of what's been caught around here was people going around at 1-3AM fishing through mailboxes, apparently on the theory that anything left in the box at that time wouldn't be missed for a while.

PO monopoly was challenged a long time ago. Challenge lost. Good man though.

Huh... I'd have avoided doing anything at that hour for fear that I'd make a noise which would cause people to investigate and find me. OTOH, you did say that was when most of the people were caught, so maybe the other ones are getting away with it? Eh, it's a moot point for me, since my tactical strategy for staying out of jail mostly involves not breaking the law.
I am not a lawyer, nor have I played one on TV, nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, nor should anything I say be taken as legal advice. If it is important that any information be accurate, do not use me as the only source.

So where does this lawsuit stand? A quick Google search didn't yield anything.

Section 18 U.S.C. concerns any Federal facility, not just Post Offices. I believe it is also is the statue that the COE uses to enforce no firearms on lakes under their control.


I just can't hold this one back...

I'm new on this forum. Would one of you mind explaining the "banjo music" reference to me?

It is a reference to the movie Deliverance where Burt Reynolds and his camping companions are set upon by deranged hillbillies.

...we've gone to pickin' the fly poop outa the pepper...the problem is our government, who won't/can't protect us, has the power to keep us from protecting ourselves while doing something as simple as mailing a letter...and we're letting them get away with it...which is how we got into this mess...votes are heard a lot clearer than grumbling in Washington...

Some businesses will accept prepaid priority mail packages for the postman to pick up later. The Office Depot near my house here in Austin does that as well as accepting prepaid UPS packages. I drop off priority mail packages there all the time. But you cannot do certified mail, return receipt, registered mail, etc. that way. And I have not found a way to get those services except at a post office.

I say give we should give first priority to repeal of the ridiculous ACOE ban in wildnerness areas before going after the somewhat more defendable Post Office ban.
