    You should ask your supervisor regarding work rules, a lawyer regarding legal issues. Not random people on the internet.

    A thing to keep in mind is bomb detection dogs are trained to locate firearms, ammunition, and spent casings in addition to explosives. If a school gets a threat whether it be a bomb threat or threat of gun violence, it is likely that police will be showing up with multiple bomb detection dogs. It is feasible that they will run the dogs through the school parking lots including the school staff section. If that happens and the dog hits on a firearm inside a vehicle, someone is going to have some explaining to do. It could result in criminal charges, job loss, and loss of LTCF, in addition media exploitation.

    Consider moving to an education job in Tamaqua. We'll see what happens there in the coming week.

    Currently, absolutely not.

    You shouldn't keep it in your car ANYWHERE.

    I've had to a couple of times because of surprise security policies, and I hated every second of it.

    I have two of the cable lock boxes that I secure in the bed of the truck when I need to for FOPA travel. For short term storage when I have to go into the Post Office (I hate the Post Office) or a federal building, I have a Console Vault.
    Sticks and stones will break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

    I may be wrong, but I don't think that is even legal on post office grounds.

    It's not. Then again, putting down a crippled deer isn't legal, either.

    I don't park on post office grounds. Public street or shopping parking lots.
