I was reading the Concealed Carry Booklet off the AG's website and found on page 12 an error. Here is the message I sent to AG Petro
Dear Attorney General Petro:
This is to inform you that on page 12 of the Concealed Carry Booklet the following is written. "Federal law prohibitions. Under federal law, 18 United States Code Section 930, it is illegal to have a firearm in a building or part of a building owned or leased by the federal government where federal employees are regularly present for performing their duties. There may be other places where firearms are prohibited. Make yourself aware of specific prohibitions before you arrive carrying a concealed handgun."
This is incorrect. According to 18 USC 930(d)(3) provides exceptions to the prohibition of carrying a weapon. 18 USC 930(d)(3) states the following.
"the lawful carrying of firearms or other dangerous weapons in a Federal facility incident to hunting or other lawful purposes."
This would indicate that if you enter a federal facility other then federal courts as stated in 18 USC 930(a) would be legal because it requires the proof of unlawful intent.
I would like the booklet updated to show that carrying within a federal facility is legal per 18 USC 930(d)(3). Thanks for your attention to this matter.
We should all send the AG messages to update this wording.
