In MO, just like many other states, it is posted on school property that "firearms are not allowed"
MO says signs hold no weight of the law.

Excerpt from the law says:
"(10) Any higher education institution or elementary or secondary school facility without the consent of the
governing body of the higher education institution or a school official or the district school board. Possession
of a firearm in a vehicle on the premises of any higher education institution or elementary or secondary
school facility shall not be a criminal offense so long as the firearm is not removed from the vehicle or
brandished while the vehicle is on the premises
;"

but then goes onto say:
"2. Carrying of a concealed firearm in a location specified in subdivisions (1) to (17) of subsection 1 of this
section by any individual who holds a concealed carry endorsement issued pursuant to sections 571.101 to
571.121 shall not be a criminal act but may subject the person to denial to the premises or removal from the
premises
. If such person refuses to leave the premises and a peace officer is summoned, such person may be
issued a citation for an amount not to exceed one hundred dollars for the first offense. If a second citation for
a similar violation occurs within a six-month period, such person shall be fined an amount not to exceed two
hundred dollars and his or her endorsement to carry concealed firearms shall be suspended for a period of
one year. If a third citation for a similar violation is issued within one year of the first citation, such person
shall be fined an amount not to exceed five hundred dollars and shall have his or her concealed carry
endorsement revoked and such person shall not be eligible for a concealed carry endorsement for a period of
three years."

my question is, If i were to carry a concealed firearm into my children's school, is it criminal?

If anyone in LEO has some insight, or attorney/lawmakers, this would be helpful

We are not attorneys, and are, therefore, not qualified to interpret the meaning of your state's laws. If you really want to challenge the intent of Missouri's laws, I encourage you to contact a Missouri Second Amendment attorney, and get an opinion from someone qualified to give an opinion.

As others have stated in the past, "legal advice given on the internet is worth exactly what you pay for it."

Check with Kevin Jamison, a 2A attorney in Gladstone, before you carry a weapon into your kids school.

Like high pockets said, consult with an attorney in your local area. However, FWIW, (IANAL, nor do I play one on TV), from reading the statute you presented above, it seems that if a school official asks you to leave, and you refuse to do so until LE arrives, you are simply trespassing and would be charged with such. However, that said, once the police arrive all bets are off and depending on Officer Friendly's mood that day, you could find yourself in a whole heap of trouble in regards to your choice to carry on school grounds.

Thank you for this lawyers name. I've heard of him before, and decided to email him my question. I just couldn't think of his name off-hand


...sent from my mind, using telepathy!

Response from Kevin Jamison:
I advise that you lock the gun in the car. These provisions are not a model of clarity.

If you have a Missouri License to Carry then you can have a gun in a school zone. I'm sure it will draw flack, but I can defend it.
