    If it's illegal, keeping it hidden doesn't make it legal. The courts can decide if the new law makes it legal. Also, would he not be in violation of federal law?

    It wouldn't be violation of a federal law. In KS, I am allowed to carry into a school as long as it isn't posted with the prescribed AG signage.

    How does that pass the "sniff" test with the federal code?

    It's my understanding, IIRC, that federal code demands that carry on campuses be lawful SO LONG AS the state (1) has a specific procedure (CHL's) for validating the person is not a criminal, and that (2) the person has gone through that procedure. If you've not been validated through that procedure (that you don't have a CHL), then how can OC be lawful with respect to the federal code? (I might well have this a bit twisted, but I believe this is the requirement.)

    The new law originally had language addressing carry on school campuses, but that language was stripped before the final vote. The state university's went bonkers when the language was introduced and they established enough political pressure that proponents of the law pulled the school clause to get the rest passed.

    I am not an attorney, but I have read the law several times and I don't see how this guy has much of a case.

    Keep your mouth shut and carry your weapon (concealed).

    This guy was obviously trying to draw attention to the fact he wanted to carry a gun to his daughters school. Blatant publicity seeking stunt

    That will put you in jail in GA. Schools are still a no no here, at least until we can get the law changed.

    and where do most of the shootings occur....at "gun free" zones. like they say....I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

    "Under the law, school districts are now able, if they choose, to allow some employees to carry a firearm on school grounds under certain conditions."

    The highlighted word says it all. If the father isn't an employee then the law doesn't permit it.

    Good on him for forcing the issue.

    I find it interesting that employees of the school may be allowed to carry on school grounds but their employers (the tax payers) may not.

    The "just cover up" mentality is what is slowly killing the ability to carry at all.
    This father obviously wants to protect his family, but also wants to stay within the laws of wherever he goes. If people like these don't fight for that right to protect their family, then those who wish to remove your ability to protect, will criminalize more and more places, till your home will be the only place you will be safe.

    And how any of that's lawful under the 14th Amendment's requirement for equal protection under the law, I'll never know. Staffers are given preferential treatment on execution of their rights (via permission only), but citizens in general are excluded. It'll never make any sense, such distinctions. Particularly when the only real thing excluded is upstanding people's ability to defend themselves and others.

    I am all for schools NOT being gun free zones,but this individual took the wrong avenue of approach IMO.
    The easy way is always mined.
