Bbbbut... but... but... There were SIGNS!

You might want to sit down for this one, but it would appear that a couple scum bags decided to -- GASP -- ignore the federal laws and "No Firearms" signs when they robbed a US Post Office in Fort Wayne, IN.

Shortly after 3:30 p.m., city police responded to reports of an armed robbery at the U.S. Post Office-Diplomat Station at 4171 Diplomat Drive, near McKinnie Avenue and Hessen Cassel Road.

...

Shortly before 6 p.m., police entered the post office and searched the building.

Got that?  It took 2.5 hours or so for the police to declare the building safe.  Two and a half hours, during which time the people inside had no idea if they were going to live or die.

And, in case you didn't know, permit or no permit, carrying a gun into a US Post Office is a FEDERAL crime. 

But, as JayG would say:

*sarcasm* I'm sure that JUST ONE MORE LAW would have stopped this. */sarcasm*
