Nobody knows. As far as I know, there's no precedence set, so the first to try it and get caught, who otherwise is legal (not a convicted felon ect) will get to be the guinea pig.Let's not make this an argument from the start. There is an actual problem I see with the confusion that I see in the law; similar to post office carry. This may not be an issue if the new law defining "Lawful Purpose" is made to be more definitive.
1. Carry of firearms in parks will follow state law in which the park is located.
2. It has been noted the firearms will not be allowed in any federal buildings or¬*
¬*¬*¬* where park employees are present in the area performing their daily duties.
¬*¬*¬* All buildings are supposed to posted with signage prohibiting weapons.
Now we have the exception to the federal building rule:
(d) Subsection (a) shall not apply to-
¬*¬*¬*¬* (3) the lawful carrying of firearms or other dangerous weapons in a Federal
¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* facility¬*]incident to hunting or other lawful purposes.
My question is:
If you ignore the signs, would this be a trespass civil infraction?
Or would it possibly constitute felony charges because it was a violation on federal property?
