Sweet.Yes, you can carry in all those places you listed, but if informed by the business that they don't allow firearms you have to leave and either stow your firearm in your vehicle or take your business elsewhere. I don't really know about the shotgun thing.
Places that Firearms are PROHIBITED or RESTRICTED (with or without a CCW permit)
Businesses serving alcohol on the premises, "Bars / Restauraunts".
Polling places on election days.
Nuclear & Hydro-Electric generating stations.
Correctional / Jail facilities.
Federal Facilities, (cannot be prosected for doing so if unless the facility is posted).
Airports (security check points and beyond).
Private / Public establishments or events when asked by the operator / sponsor / agent.
The Post office is a federal building.autosurgeon's link is very informative, though I would also pursue the website of the state and verify.
With the license for me, yes I can carry the shotgun loaded and chambered. I can also carry in bars, liquor stores, post offices, etc.
My limits are Federal buildings and schools basically, unless prominently posted and labeled at each available entry/exit point, or specifically asked by the manager/owner to remove it.
So, that section of Title 18 doesn't apply to the post office.39 USC 410. Application of other laws

Or (as here in Memphis,TN) are prohibited by department regulations from carrying anything other than the dept issued firearm. That includes prohibitions against a BUG, effing moronic regulation if you ask me.Well said Bomber... this has been discussed ad nauseum on opencarry.org and as of today we still have not been able to find one legit instance where a citizen who is OCing has been attacked by another citizen.
Citizens attacked by cops yes.... Security guard in Indiana yes... however security guards are standing in the same place day after day so that give the BG time to plan an attack.
As for the Cops well some of them are just overstuffed idiots who seem to have forgotten the purpose of a BUG... all I can say is they better hope I see the badge...
Lol...but that's not "COOL!!!" (note the sarcasm)Don't you find yourself a bit of a target if you open carry or am i just paraniod. I don't want BG's to know i'm packing; i want to blend in with the sheeple.
I understand your logic, but i just don't want to be the first statistic.before i came to that conclusion, i'd want to see some evidence that people who open carry are attacked more often than regular people. If i were a criminal, i think would pretty much avoid anyone with a gun. there are too many other easier targets out there.
