College and school

Do college campuses, even local community colleges, have the exact same gun laws as regular elementary and high school? So students who attend community college cannot CC, correct?

No. Both PA and federal laws refer to K-12 schools in regards to carry or possession of a weapon or firearm.

Colleges have the right of private property owners.

Oh really? So if I decide to take some classes eventually, I can CC in class? Because if I do, it will probably be night classes, and I'm really not cool going anywhere by myself at night without a gun.

I didn't say that. There is no prohibition in law, but many colleges prohibit students (at least) from carrying. You could be trespassed and booted out with no refund. I *believe* I have heard that some colleges are just starting to allow it, but I have no detailed info as to which colleges or specifically what they allow.

Agreed, the "sale of" part is curious though, leading me to think there may be other authorized persons/reasons, unlikely but curious nonetheless.

So....unauthorized possession of animals...I assume that means you can bring a service animal legally. Wonder if a person with a LTCF can be authorized the same way? Same wording.

State colleges?

Virtually no colleges or universities allow CC.

Carry and get caught and expulsion is virtually 100% certain.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile
