I'm sorry, but this is the first time I've read this thread. I thought it was well understood that if a school posted their parking lots with 30.06 signs they were off limits to CHLs. However, I do not want to re-fuel the debate over carrying in a school because it is government owned. I'd like to just focus on the parking lots. Is Brianko correct in that even if a school properly posts their parking lot it is really unable to lawfully do so? I am not a teacher or a school employee, so I'm asking about this from that point of view. I'm in the same situation with my own employer. There are no signs prohibiting guns at all. However, our employee handbook specifically prohibits them and even incorrectly states that only on duty police officers can have weapons on the "property." We are even restricted from having them in our vehicles.brianko wrote:School districts are government entities, so the 30.06 signs don't mean anything. However, I would bet they have been thoughtful enough to ensure that the weapons prohibition has a prominent place in your employee handbook, in which case they'll just fire you.dover338 wrote: I'm in the same boat, but my school district has taken the extra step and posted 30.06 signs at the entrance of every parking lot, making it illegal to even enter the parking lot while carrying. And they posted signs on every ancillary building/parking lot the district owns. I'm not a very happy camper.
Not all school districts have an explicit ban on weapons...maybe it's time to start looking for a more weapons-friendly school district.
Also, regarding my wife, who does not have a CHL, if she wanted to carry under the MPA and a school parking lot were 30.06 posted would it apply to her? I'm thinking that because of the language it would not.
