Post Office Ban On Mailing Replica Or Inert Munitions
That's right, the U.S. Postal Service is trying to keep people from shipping replica or inert munitions through the mail. They have no authority in the law, since Congress has kept for itself the power to decide what can and cannot be shipped. But un-elected Post Office bureaucrats are trying to say that replica or inert munitions are hazardous! If you are a re-enactor or collector of replica or inert munitions, you are in the Post Office crosshairs. Why? Canada wants the US to help shut off shipment of these items into Canada. So it looks like our bureaucrats are eager to appease other governments by changing
our laws to make them as bad as our neighbors'.
We just found out about this outrageous proposal issued by the Post Office. Although the deadline for postmarking is Monday, April 7, e-mails and letters should be sent anyway.
