(l) Weapons and explosives. Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law, rule or regulation, no person while on postal property may carry firearms, other dangerous or deadly weapons, or explosives, either openly or concealed, or store the same on postal property, except for official purposes.

This was late last year, but I haven't heard anything about it. I'll have to look it up again. Bonidy et al v USPS et al
