    Lightbulb Post offices and tazers

    Since tazers will be legal here in Michigan soon...
    Would the feds consider a tazer a deadly weapon when I go in to get my mail?

    TTBOMK the prohibition is only on firearms.
    Look at the sign the next time you're at a PO, write down the USC#, & search www.law.cornell.edu to read it yourself.
    Also, unlike a firearm or knife, a Taser is generally considered a non-lethal weapon.
