Handgunlaw.us is seeking information on carrying on Airport Property (Parking Lots). Inside the terminal up to the sterile area. By law can you or can you not carry in these areas in Airports. I would appreciate giving me the statute and I will look them up. I want to add this info to Handgunlaw.us so people can know the law and stay within the law. I am searching myself but any help I can get would be greatly appreciated. Some states will have no laws concerning this. That will be the hard part. The law could be outside the firearm laws of the state and not easily found. When there is no law then we believe it is OK. Pittsburgh PA airport is off limits to carry even in the Parking lots due to a County Regulation. These are the tough ones to find.
again any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. I will try to update this list daily but it does take time. Thank you and Stay Safe, Gary Slider
These are the states I have laws for. My Excel Spread Sheet format will not let me copy and paste it here in a readable form so I am just listing the states.
Someone pointed out that Federal Laws may apply. They could and just because a law says nothing about carrying there you can always be arrested. That is why I want the code for the law so people can look for themselves. That still is not enough. The laws are so screwed up (for lack of a better term) that they could be anywhere in the code of some states. Handgunlaw.us will also note that if any parking lot or terminal is posted do not carry there even if you believe the signs have no meaning. You can be arrested any time and get your day in court.
