First, get familiar with this:
"Political subdivision regulation of firearms, ammunition, and firearm accessories prohibited
Sec. 2. Except as provided in section 4 of this chapter, a political subdivision may not regulate:
(1) firearms, ammunition, and firearm accessories;
(2) the ownership, possession, carrying, transportation, registration, transfer, and storage of firearms, ammunition, and firearm accessories; and
(3) commerce in and taxation of firearms, firearm ammunition, and firearm accessories."
Read the chapter to familiarize yourself with the exceptions. County offices do not qualify for an exception, but a county courthouse does, so if you have to go to the courthouse, you should disarm.
Chapter 9 is where you need to look. Right now, it says it is a felony to possess a firearm on school property. The exception is
#2 Wife works at a school as a teacher and I frequently find myself going there to help with this or that and my handgun typically is with me but stays locked out of sight in my truck...legal or illegal on school ground?
"(3) A person who:
(A) may legally possess a firearm; and
(B) possesses the firearm in a motor vehicle that is being operated by the person to transport another person to or from a school or a school function."
There is a bill in this senate session (SB0180) to make it legal to have a firearm locked in a vehicle on school property.
That is correct. There is no law that states that a "no guns" sign means anything other than that it is the preference of the owner that you not carry. If they tell you to leave, you must leave or you are trespassing.#3 When carrying open or concealed in any private establishment all the owner can do is request you to leave right? They cannot press charges as long as you oblige correct?
