A licensed holder who works for a school. Obviously, you can only carry while picking up and dropping of your children. But can an employee with a CCW unload his/her sidearm before arriving to work, lock the weapon and the magazine in seperate secure areas and go into work, as long as the weapon is in the vehicle, secured and unloaded?

Say this person had one of those large lap over tool boxes bolted to the bed of his truck, the kind that overlap the siderail, and he were to put the sidearm in the drivers side locking compartment, and the magazine in the passanger side, would or would he not be complying with the rules and regulations?

On another note, say with a school, if the school super were to give written permission to an employee, could they legally carry on the school property?

Frantz- I believe that the law specifically identifies parking lots of 'excluded' or 'non-carry' facilities to be exempt. You should be fine with it locked in your car. I'll check and get back...
