    This just happened today and reminds you that you could need your gun any time or place.

Police say 70-year-old Farleigh David Small entered the art center with a ski mask and a gun. Small is being held at the Southwest Regional Jail and is charged with having a concealed weapon on school property.

    Does anyone in Abingdon know if the Art center would be a school? Years ago it was the high school but not for a long time. I am hoping it is not one because I have carried there many times. It looks like I may have made a big boo-boo.

    i would call the school distric office and ask them for a list of all there properties and what they have control over, they may still be the owners of the museum. but not sure if that would qualify it as a school thet seems kinda goofy to me

    School property/school functions unless gun is unloaded, in an enclosed container (but NOT in the glove box or console) and in the vehicle. A car's trunk is considered an enclosed container. However, a concealed handgun permit holder can have a loaded, concealed handgun in the vehicle while in the school parking lot, traffic circle, etc. The concealed handgun and the permit holder must stay in the vehicle. Firearms are not banned from property open to the public where a school function is being held unless that property is being used exclusively for the school function. Violation of this statute is a felony

    I always thought that school had to be K-12 to count, but maybe that is just on non-county/state school owned property.

    I do know that it does not apply to college property.
