    What is the LAW for PA college carry?

    I'd like to know where i can find the laws of PA CCW for college campus'. Nevermind a school policy.
    Bottom line...What would the consequenses be if you were found to be carrying or had to use force on school property?

    depends on your intent. the way the law is written it is legal if you do not intend to commit any crimes. but then there are local laws to consider. but you'll need a lawyer tto give you a go or nogo on this station.

    rmxr, you won't find any laws on it because there are none, it is not illegal by any means. all the information you need is contained in the PA Uniformed Firearms Act Section 912 deals with possession of weapons on school property, but it pertains to elementary and secondary education institutions only. Legally, you don't have to worry about local laws because of this tidbit:
    6120. Limitation on the Regulation of Firearms and Ammunition.

    (a) General rule. No county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammuni*tion components when carried or transported for purposes not prohibited by the laws of this commonwealth.
    That being said, if caught, you'll probably have huge problems on your hands, but legally you're fine...pretty much can guarantee expulsion.

    ther are no laws against carrying on a college campus. i can say for sure that penn state worthington, the university of scranton, and marywood university forbid campus carry. i'm pretty sure temple university is out of the question, too.
