Pennsylvania has both state and federal considerations that come into play when you are looking at laws pertaining to guns and school zones.

Federal Law

Currently the law considers within 1,000 feet as a gun-free school zone. It doesn’t apply to people that have a valid license to carry a firearm or if it’s private property within the zone, such as a house or a private business within that area.

Pennsylvania Law

Technically, under the law, a gun or a firearm of any type is a no-go in the schools areas on school property. It means even the soccer field that’s adjacent to it, or the church group that meets there on Sunday.

It’s always important to be educated on the law and we thank you for joining us.
