(1) A person is guilty of unlawful possession of a weapon on school property when he knowingly deposits, possesses, or carries, whether openly or concealed, for purposes other than instructional or school-sanctioned ceremonial purposes, or the purposes permitted in subsection (3) of this section, any firearm or other deadly weapon, destructive device, or booby trap device in any public or private school building or bus, on any public or private school campus, grounds, recreation area, athletic field, or any other property owned, used, or operated by any board of education, school, board of trustees, regents, or directors for the administration of any public or private educational institution. The provisions of this section shall not apply to institutions of postsecondary or higher education.
You can read the entire statute at:
You said that you were aware of the federal Gun Free School Zone Act, but you are violating it. That federal law prohibits possession of guns within 1000 ft of any school property. Not the school building, but 1000 ft. from the outermost boundery of the property owned by the school. If you get a CCDW it will exempt you from the GFSZ Act in Ky., but will not help with state law. It will still apply to you when actually on school grounds.
