    I doubt that. I think it would be a private school if anything.

    My county DA does not see the phrase is possessed for other lawful purpose as a way for CCL holders in PA to carry on school property. However I'm not sure how well he knows the firearm laws for PA. I think I may speak with some attorney's in the area and get there thoughts on this. Would be interested to see what other county DA's have say on the subject.

    What did he think it meant?? Could he define "other lawful purpose"? How about lawfully carrying a concealed weapon (vs UNlawfully carrying a concealed weapon)

    His thought of Other Lawful Purpose was meant for law enforcement and other such depts. He said he didn't think a CCL holder on school property as a citizen or even as a parent fit into that catagory.

    Funny...you would think PO would be exempt as they are "on-duty"--sounds like your DA friend is weak.

    My understanding was you could not have a gun on school property in PA - which also means in the car. Really becomes a problem for someone who works for a school. Since they could not leave their gun in the car they would be unarmed from when they left home until returning, even though they may have side trips to make on the way home.

    Nice to have valid answer on this. As it is now if a teacher had a gun in the car and the school district found out - it would be on the evening news.
