That seems contradictory to the info posted at Handgunlaw.us regarding prohibited locations in NY:
He knowingly has in his possession a rifle, shotgun or firearm in or upon a building or grounds, used
for educational purposes, of any school, college or university, except the forestry lands, wherever
located, owned and maintained by the State University of New York college of environmental
science and forestry, without the written authorization of such educational institution; §265.01)
You are correct in that your quote is exactly as the statute is written. But there needs to be a legal definition of "school" or we would be excluded from karate schools, firearms training schools, music schools, etc. Clearly there must be a legal definition of "school". I was told that it had to be an accredited school (most day care and preschools are accredited, most karate schools are not).
btw, with my oregon chl i can carry , either open or concealed in any public school, college or university in the state.... awesome huh?
I carry where it's legal to do so. An establishment will get my business until such a time that I am asked to leave because I am carrying. I will do so without incident and not return after that.
Good points. I know that the state of Michigan (I live in Ohio and my ccw is also Ohio) permit holders are not permitted to conceal carry their weapon in any area where there are more than (something like) 1200 people gathered. This is in addition to the restricted areas that Ohio permit holders are not allowed to carry. Just an interesting fact.
I carry a concealed weapon. That means nobody needs to know its there, and if they do find out it's probably because something bad is happening. I these cases I don't think signs mean a whole lot...
The only time I go anywhere that won't allow concealed carry is I have to go eat out with the in-laws. As for me and my wife I try really, really, really hard to avoid places that serve alcohol. 1. Because I can't legally carry there and 2. because there is always someone who doesn't know when to stop and ends up starting some kind of trouble. For the times I can't take a gun I always have multiple knives (thank God the signs say no handguns and not no concealed weapons)
The only places I do not go with my firearm is to court or on an airline. Apart from this, I go everywhere else with it. places with signs indicating firearms are not allowed do not deserve my business, unless its a government establishment.
Amen, I like your phrasing, attitude, and uncommon common sense sir.
Went to Denney's for breakfast this morning and was dissapointed to see the no ccw sign. Been thinking about it the rest of the day, do I go again, or switch to another breakfast place. I will let them know how I feel when I do the online survey.
For the most part, I will not patronize an establishment that posts....it's my right.....
You still have to respect the gun laws for the state the reciprocates. Like some places you can carry a gun into a resturant that serves alcohol as long as the carrier is not drinking. In NC you are not allowed to carry concealed ANY resturant that serves alcohol.
I know a couple of people that do (but don't drink) and said if they haev to use it then they will deal with the fines, having their gun and license taken away, and the other legal stuff. It is their choice, I however won't put me or my wife in the position of going somewhere I can't defend myself or her. Sometimes I break down and go somewhere. I just tell her she better hopes if something goes down we can make it back to the car.
I figure if my gun is not welcome neither am I.
I don't look for the signs but if I see one and don't need to go there I won't.Otherwise I'm legal unless I'm made and asked to leave.
