    I swore you couldn't carry in a bar but I just read on here that you could. Anyone know if you can or can't? Where else can't you carry?

    I had thought that to be true in PA also (sort of). I thought that you can carry in a restaurant that has a bar - you just can't go to the bar area.

    Default Off-Limits Areas

    K-12 School Property - see 18 Pa. C.S. 912

    Court Facilities - see 18 Pa. C.S. 913

    Casinos - see 18 Pa. Code 465a.13

    State Parks - see 17 Pa. Code 11.215

    Dept. of State Capitol Complex buildings in Harrisburg - see 49 Pa. Code 61.3

    Bars, churches, public gatherings, shopping malls and sports stadiums are all okay. The Pa. Code violations are summary offenses, except for 18 Pa. Code 465a.13, which apparently has no penalty.

    Concerning carry on school property (concealed is highly recommended), an affirmative defense is made for "lawful purposes". To date, no LTCF holder has ever been prosecuted for carrying on school property, and no court has clearly defined what "lawful purposes" entails.

    From that link I found:

    "*Colleges are not prohibited by law, however the college could levy their own infractions like expelling the person or other civil punishments."

    So in effect, campus bans are just as unconstitutional as the DC ban. Why haven't we pushed this issue?

    I beleive any establishment has the right to ban firearms within their premises, however a clear posting of said policy is required. Further, if you are asked to removed your weapon from a location I beleive you are required to do so.

    I was told that you can carry in a bar, but you can't drink alcohol.
    However, be wary of carry in the post office!
