A. Only when an organized school-sponsored event such as a soccer match is in progress. Casual use and “pick-up” games do not qualify.
A. No, you must carry it at all times. If you choose to carry it in a purse or other bag instead of a holster, then you must keep it within arm’s reach at all times. You may lock your gun in the glove box, trunk or other locked container in your personal motor vehicle.
A. If there is no auditorium or other large gathering space inside the student center where the event is being held, then yes, it does mean that you could carry in the student center when a school-sponsored event is in progress. For example, if the event is a recruiting event for student organizations and the various organizations have set up tables throughout the student center, that would be an event at which a properly permitted and registered employee could carry their concealed handgun.
A. That will depend on whether the sponsor of the event will allow handguns to be carried into the event. If they choose to, the non-school sponsor may prohibit weapons inside their event.
A. A “formal meeting” is one that is scheduled in advance with the knowledge of all parties that the subject will be a disciplinary matter.
A. As long as the clinic provides health care or mental health care, guns are prohibited within. These fields are all regulated by the Department of Health and, therefore, the clinics or labs would be considered to provide health care services for purposes of the prohibition.
A. A dedicated building or space within a building is one that is set aside for use only by K-12 students. For example, if an entire building on a campus houses an elementary school or middle college, that building is dedicated to that purpose and guns are prohibited within. If a wing of a building is set aside for dual enrollment students, that wing is dedicated to a K-12 use and guns are prohibited within that wing. The same applies to buildings or parts of buildings housing child care facilities, such as a campus-run daycare center.
A. Generally, searches will only be conducted based upon probable cause, but there may be exigent circumstances that will warrant a search. Law enforcement officers have been trained to make these determinations, which is why only they may conduct such a search.
A. That doesn’t make any difference in this case.
A. It would be a gun free zone if a school sponsored track meet were in progress. It would not be a gun free zone during the recreational use you have described.
A. Yes, it would be a gun free zone during the school sponsored event. Your all-purpose field would be considered the equivalent of a stadium.
A. If the students were merely engaging in a recreational game, it would not be a gun free zone. If there were a school-sponsored volley ball tournament or regularly scheduled intramural league play in progress, then it would be a gun free zone.
