    I've searched...is there a comprehensive list of Federal places one is not allowed to carry even with a permit?

    My state has a list of banned places but also states:

    " Any place where federal law prohibits the carrying of firearms. "

    Is there a list somwhere? I'd assume Federal buildings, but really looking for a comprehensive list.?

    I'm curious to see the answers you get here. I think Fedaral building is generally where Federal control ends. The States take over from there.

    These too! Then there's the Post Offices, National Cemeterys, technically isn't the Interstate a Federal Highway?

    I really think there should be a list.:wow:

    As of right now there's also a Corps of Engineers ban on carrying firearms. It's being argued as we speak and they're trying to get it overturned.

    One more edit that I'm not seeing immediately is the Federal Reserve Bank. If you don't know specifically what that is you've never had use of one. It's where the banks bank. There are a dozen or so in the US and it is illegal to carry in there.

    There is a branch here. It looks like the type of place at that one does not just randomly show up and saunter in without having an appointment and some sort of invitation.

    What about Federal park lands, like the Blue Ridge Parkway or national forests? I have heard (unofficially) you are not allowed to carry in any Federal park.

    Yes but the guards in it are federal employees and they are regularly present to perform their official duties. Now go look at the definition of federal facility.

    Does this apply to the parking lot of a Federal facility? As an example how about when someone goes to the Post Office or Social Security office and dutifully locks up his/her gun in their car before entering either place? Just a hypothetical situation of course.

    Dunno. No one knows yet. You can find opinions both ways.

    I have seen 1 (one, ONE) court case where there was a firearm in the car that got thrown out because a parking lot is not a federal facility because it's not a building where federal employees go for work daily. That's shaky at best.

    There's a couple in CO suing USPS to bring their firearms on property. This one's being watched by just about literally everyone:

    As I read it, that's onlyi n buildings in a National Park where federal employees work, such as visitor centers, ranger stations etc.
    Restrooms, gift shops are OK unless the're posted.
    Be VERY careful because in some cases he signs are not posted in a high visibility location.

    Go to this page at www.handgunlaw.us (Link Above) and there is a listing of federal properties that are off limits. One listing is federal buildings. This would be any building owned by the federal government. If you scroll down to National Parks etc Section you will see the federal law stating the buildings must be posted. Seeing that I should have had that federal law in the Off Limits Section I have added that same law that buildings must be posted to the bottom of the Off Limits Section. That change will not show up for a few days though.
