This is a discussion on Is school's parking lot/drop off area considered a "no carry zone"? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Specifically in FL.

Specifically in FL. The law is pretty clear that carrying or possessing gun on campus is a big no-no. However, if I am dropping off my child at the school's parking lot (in this particular case, the parking lot is outside of fenced area, but clearly belongs to school) -- is it still the same?
Seems pretty silly to have to leave the gun at home whenever I need to drive the kid to school on my way to work ... but that's what I have been doing for now.

Not it Texas it isn't. Just inside the buildings.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

In Nevada anywhere on school property is prohibited so when I drop my son off I never leave the street or at most the sidewalk if I have to get out of the car. I can see him go in the gate from the street so I'm good.
Don't some states have 'buffer zones' or something like that? 1,000 feet or whatever. Something to keep in mind as well.
It appears FL does not allow you on school property even to drop off/pick up children. Looks like your only option would be drop them at the sidewalk in front of the school and watch them enter from there.
Ignore the non-FL answers. They are wrong.
IF you have your CWFL, you may drop off or pick up your child at school, while armed, even if on school property, provided you do not get out of the car. If you do, you will be in violation of the law.
Get Florida Firearms Law, by Jon Gutmacher, and digest it. It will answer a ton of questions about FL law.

In my state it is legal as long as it remains in the car and not brandished

I've never heard of anyone who has ever had a problem with this.
Don't try this in North Carolina. Any firearm on ANY school property (public or private, K-12 or university) is a felony. (at least by any of us non-specially trained LEO types)
Well you have to look at it this way. If it is concealed and in the car. You are not getting out of the car were is the problem. You shouldn't get made while you are in the car. If you do then you really need to think about how you are carry. If you are the worried about it make your child take the bus or don't bring it with you.
If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
Bring Enough GUN!!
I believe this falls under the Federal Gun Free School Zone Act. No weapon within 1000 feet of a school UNLESS the person has a CCW permit. Then the permitee may be on school property to drop off the child but may not exit the vehicle while armed.
I believe this supercedes any state law however IANAL
The drop off and pick up rule is the same in Ga as it is in FL.
