I recently took my 3 hour training as part of the renewal process. The instructors were very good, and knowledgeable on the fine points of the law. It was a far better class than the original training I took at another business 5 years ago.
I did come away with one question that I thought I might be able to get some clarification on here.
As they discussed the "no go" places specified in the law when we are required to disarm to enter, they also detailed the "safe haven" provisions that allow us leave a firearm in the vehicle in a parking lot to enter the "verbotten" areas.
I had an old thought bouncing around in my memory from the first go around that you could NOT store your weapon in the car in the parking lot of any federal facility such as a Postal Office or Federal Courthouse, I asked the instructor about it, and he said there was no such prohibition in the law. I assume he is correct, but thought I should touch base with him if I found out my old memory was right.
Can you store your weapon in your car parked in the lot of a federal facility?
Thanks for your help!
