The lighting guy I work with is even a NRA instructor haha
The school resource officer at my granddaughter's school said it was okay for a cwp holder to have a gun in the car on school property provided it was locked in a gun vault or other secure
container that is secured to the car in some way.
So, this is what an LEO assigned to the school told me. Do I believe it enough to take a chance on it? Not really, and I can't find an exception in Florida statutes. If I had to guess I would say that it would be more of a policy statement instead of law. Anyway, I posted it in the hopes that someone else would wade through the statutes to see if they could find something on it.
What is true is that the Supremes have given your car almost as much 4th amendment protection as your house. It's also true in Florida that with a few exceptions it is a criminal offense for an employer to ask the employee if they have a gun in the car while it is parked on the businesses property.
I would advise against carrying in the car on the property if there is a school on site, but in the end it's not my place to make the decision for you. You can either do some research yourself, or make an appointment, pay the fee, and ask a lawyer. Get the lawyer's answer in writing. At least then you will have somebody to sue if the info turns out to be bad.
Again, let me put another disclaimer in here. The information above is not law. It is based on and stems from an LEO's answer to a question. An LEO is not a lawyer, and they are not expected to know the law. They are trained to recognize possible offenses and react in a way that does not poison the court case following the arrest. They are not legal scholars, and should not be trusted to know all the details of any law. Their knowledge of the law is general in nature and you should never count on their opinion to protect you from a judge and jury.
