    Doesnt seem legal for them to ask. Only questions they can ask you are ones that pertain to your job. If they did refuse you a job based on that it would be considered discrimination however itd be impossible to prove

I can't imagine that a licensed Carry Concealer would even think that it would be okay to carry in a school.
    The legitimate application would be to authorize carry (indicated as a possibility on the linked site) at school facilities during the interview or upon hiring. Unlikely, but theoretically possible.

    I never thought of that but it does make sense.

    Not illegal to lie but when it comes out, you will be terminated. They can ask questions that indicate or reveal what they might believe to be High Risk as far as compatibility with the job you are applying for. CWP holders will be singled out for suspicion when it is politically expeditious to do so and they are easy targets for the anti gun crowd.

    I'ld leave it blank and move on. It's 1) none of their business, and 2) leaving it blank is not lying.

    If you are not truthful on the app...and found out...it would be grounds for immediate dismissal.

    Yikes! I'd probably leave it blank and ask & answer truthfully if it comes up in the job interview.

    Perhaps it's the other way around, maybe their looking for a few teachers that can keep the lunchroom undercontrol!
    Perhaps they are planning a Teacher in service training day at the local gun range.

    Well they can't check if they don't have your email address or at least not all of them. I only have nine email addresses at this time, I used to have 14, but I paried it down when I stopped working for AOL and got rid of my second AOL account.

    In my state, the Memphis Commercial-Appeal has a link where you can just type in someone's name and zip code and it will tell you if they are a permit holder. I don't like it, but basically anyone who wants to take the time and effort to find out if you are a permit holder can do so. If you lie on an application about this, and they find out, then they start wondering what else you are not telling the truth about.

    Wow.. a surprisingly polarizing thread (and I didn't start it).

    I just thought I'd chime in here. In Texas they claim the information is not available to the public. However, a person could easily log onto Texas's CHL website and click "check status of my application." All it asks for is the date of birth, social security number, and driver's license number. Any employer would have that information on an application. So they could, in theory, look it up.

    I must admit being very curious as to why they would ask. There must be some reason somebody decided to add it to the application. I have to wonder if it is something similar to what somebody else suggested, where it might explain a certain piece of info on your background check. For example, when taking a drug test they always ask if you are on any prescription medications because some of those may end up causing odd results on your results. The same may be true when they do a background check and perhaps it has caused problems in the past with people who had the permit. That is my theory.

    I'd personally just answer it honestly. Then again, I live in a fairly pro-gun state so I wouldn't expect it to be used in a discriminatory manner.

    Maybe they've been looking at the Charles Branas study that concluded that people who carry guns are 4.5 times as likely to be shot as unarmed citizens. The anti-gun crowd loves to quote the results of that study. Instead of asking if you own a gun, they sneak the question in the backdoor by asking if you have a permit.
