    Teacher with CCW

    Hello everyone. My wife and I just applied for our ccw's. The biggest question/concern we have is about her work. She is school teacher in NE Ohio. I obviously know that she can't carry in school (although it would great if that would change) but what about on the way to work and after work? Firearms are prohibited on school property including the parking lot so how is she suppose to be able to carry in the morning on her way to work? What about after work if she has errands to run? She rarely comes straight home after work. I am just curious if there are any other teachers on here that have ccw's and how they handle the inconvenience of not being able to keep your firearm locked up in your car while at work. Any input or advise would for her would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Kirk

    I'm not a teacher, but I have the same predicament. I currently do not carry in this situation. I hate it.

    Leave the gun at home, go to work, come home, grab gun, go back out to run errands, come home for the night, leave gun at home, go to work, come home, grab gun, go back out to run errands.........

    Or, substitute home with a closer location off school property where you can store the gun (friends house?).

    I've been wondering for some time now if a good business model might be to develop a string of shops with small lockers that people can rent to store a gun in temporarily. There would need to be an in-depth review of liability issues, but I'm thinking of areas around military bases, schools, federal buildings ..... I just wonder what business model might support the idea.

    That's a tough situation that a number of folks face. It's just something you will have to decide. My wife works at a place that told them no guns in parking lot. Well she made the decision to keep her gun locked in the car so she will be armed back and forth from work. She travels very early in the morning along. I stand behind her. The only difference between my wife's situation and your wife's is, my wife is not breaking a law...only a policy but your wife would be breaking a state law.

    Parking off campus and walking to school would be a sensible option. Lock the weapon in the car. Not versed in Ohio CC laws, but if the weapon never enters school property then she'd be in the clear. Worth checking in to.

    Yup, just checked handgulaws.us and it looks the same as WA. Park off campus, walk to school....if anyone asks, she does it for exercise.
    It does state that you can carry when dropping off/picking up child.....much like WA doesn't specify, locking in the car for a day.
    Better safe than sorry.

    YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CAYY ON A MILLITARY BASE BUT YOU CAN HAVE YOUR WEAPON ON POST AS LONG AS ITS REGISTERED ON THAT POST. each post has its own laws though ft riley ks weapon has to be locked from ammo or out of reach of driver like in a truck

    I'm a teacher... But, unfortunately i can't advise you on the matter until the rules of this board change.

    I can only give you a few questions to ask yourself. How many times has your wife had her car searched on campus? If she really needed to deploy her firearm on school grounds would her fear of the consequences outweigh the need for said weapon?

    Do they regularly search cars on the campus with no probable cause and look inside of car safes without warrants?

    No need to answer...I was just wanted to post a random question.

    That sounds like a great idea. Or in the case of Kirkw12 (OP) Perhaps he and his wife could scout out a friendly resident who would be willing to sell a *parking spot*. As far as securing the handgun in her car one of those small gun vaults I've heard about. Perhaps something that can be bolted to the floor of her car. If vault is in the *open* throw a coat over it or fast food wrappers over it to disguise it. Pay for the Private Parking in Cash or trade? Home canned jams or Jellies. Anything of value can be traded for instead of using FRNs. Good Luck

    There are only three choices...

    Break the law, and you could end up NEVER being able to CCW...very bad idea!

    Park off campus and be sure to have the gun hidden in a CoM safe...it could work!

    The 'go home prior to running errands' idea suggest in an earlier post.

    That's about it!

    Re: Teacher with CCW

    Thanks for the fast responses. Her car would never be randomly searched but I know they have had a bomb threat before and occasionally bring the bomb sniffing dogs around. At least my wife thinks they did. Not even sure if they would pick up a scent from a handgun locked in a safe under a seat. Either way I would prefer to be law abiding and wouldn't want her risking anything. Especially her right to conceal carry. She will probably just have to get used to driving home before running errands. It's not the end of world just inconvenient. Probably 75% of her awake time is spent driving to and from work and at work.
