Ummm...one of the place you might want to carry IS a bank. Federal Credit Union or a "Federal Reserve" bank are NOT Federal Property. The bank is Insured by the Federal Government (and in a credit union a majority share is owned by federal employees) but if the poperty where the bank is located is owned by a private party, shareholders of a board, etc, they have to post a sign saying you can't carry. But don't take my word or anyone elses on a forum on it, do some research. For me....I carry. If you end up carrying on privete property that posts a sign and get "made" most likely all the police will do is ask you to leave, the worst would be being given a citation similar to tresspassing.
If I were in a bank that was getting robbed, the robbers would leave with the money (which we already established is insured by the feds). You stand more to loose personally by starting a gunfight in a crowded bank. If they single me or my family out and I am in genuine fear for my life (or loved ones lives) then action will be taken to remove the threat.
