for those having issues... here is the exact text.
"A licensee may carry a concealed firearm in the immediate area surrounding his or her vehicle within a prohibited parking lot area only for the limited purpose of storing or retrieving a firearm within the vehicle's trunk, provided the licensee ensures the concealed firearm is unloaded prior to exiting the vehicle. For purposes of this subsection, "case" includes a glove compartment or console that completely encloses the concealed firearm or ammunition, the trunk of the vehicle, or a firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container."
This is specifically in reference to private property areas (see (a-10) just before this section) which is where the notification by signage is mentioned, and clarified in subsection (d). So if you go to a new place carrying, and see the sign, then walk back to your car, you may technically be in violation since you walked away from your vehicle to the door before seeing that it is a prohibited area - but I would be shocked if anyone gets in trouble for this.
Am I interpreting this correctly?
