    Question about carrying ammo

    In areas that are off-limits to concealed carry, is it also illegal to have a mag on you? I carry an extra with me and today I had to leave my glock in the truck when i went inside (had to scrub down in a hospital, didnt want anyone to see it in the locker room) and it occured to me that I wasnt sure about this. Is it illegal to have ammo on school property etc? or when I have to disarm is it enough to take out the gun and leave the mag in place?

    I believe that it is legal in MOST places. I have heard of a select few areas where gangs are an issue where on guy will carry the ammo and another a gun (lessons possible charges). They made is illegal there for that reason. Ammo by itself is not illegal to have on your person I am quite sure.

    Don't wear it in the MRI room though!

    Not completely sure, but that's what I do in the same situation.

    Educational institutions usually have regs stating no ammo on school grounds. All visitors to schools have to check in at front office and regs will, in one way or another, be posted. Schools have autonomy and can write their own regs, so screaming SA rights isn't going to help much. If you don't raise a stink, they will probably ask you to leave the magazine with the principal and pick it up when you leave. Start playing constitutional lawyer and the Resource Officer is going to help put you into a Sheriff's car.
    In Tennessee it could mean losing your HCP. Judges have very little sympathy when it comes to safety of children. When I visit the school, my reloading strips (I carry J-Frames) go in trunk and pistol safe along with revolver.This is legal in TN, I don't know about other states.
    Pick your battles wisely, you can't win them all, and this one is hard to win.

    The last time I went to the Sherriffs office to renew my permit I left my gun and knives in the car but forgot to leave my spare magazines. They of course set off the metal detectors. I was told to leave them at the desk and I could pick them up on the way out.
