I had a nice long chat with shooting buddy Mike B. today. One of the things we talked about was the situation of carrying a firearm near schools. I didn’t realize it but just because your CCW license is good in another state doesn’t mean it protects you from prosecution for simply carrying concealed in that other state.
Mike supplied the evidence.
Basically the Federal law against carrying within 1000 feet of a school has an exemption if you have a CCW issued by the state in which the school is in. But if, for example, you have a Washington state license which is recognized by Idaho but no Idaho license and you and I, both carrying firearms, go walking past a school here in Moscow you could be charged with a crime and I would be innocent of any wrong doing.
Just another example of Huffman’s Rule of Firearms Law.
