I think that penndot is a state agency and I have to agree with the idea that they are not subject to 6120.


No.. landlords for a government agency cannot. They cannot do anything to prohibit the public from entering the premises at all since the premises must be accessible to all. It is not even a question. If they wanted to ban motorcycles from their lot, they couldn't do so. If they wanted to ban green shirts, they couldn't either. The Commonwealth dictates the rules of renting the property. The landowner signed off on that! if the government rented a place that made it so the governmental entity violated the law, the government would be subject to a lawsuit and the landlord would be out of luck because the property couldn't be used for the purpose it was rented for. These protections are circular. So while technically the property owner may have said "no guns" they lose because they signed an agreement with the commonwealth.
