Bonidy v. United States Postal Service

United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit

790 F.3d 1121 (2015)

Facts

Tab Bonidy (plaintiff) lived in an area of rural Colorado where the local post office did not deliver mail to residents’ homes. Instead, residents went to the post office to pick up their mail. For sending mail, a drop-off box was available in the post office parking lot. A federal regulation prohibited the carrying or storage of firearms on United States Postal Service (USPS) (defendant) property. Bonidy, who had a concealed-carry permit, sought to both carry his gun into the postal building and keep it in the parking lot in case he needed it for self-defense purposes. Bonidy challenged the validity of the regulation in federal district court, arguing that it violated the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. The court held that the regulation was constitutionally valid insofar as it applied to the building but not as it applied to the parking lot. Both parties appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
