    Default Restaurants abd Bars

    New to PAFOA. I have a CCW permit. I have been told I can carry inside a bar or restaurant. I have also read that I can but have also read I can't. Could someone clear this up? I have searched the internet and can't find answers i trust.

    Off-limits places in PA and what makes them off-limits:
    1. Court Facilities - PA Title 18, Chapter 9, Subsection 913
    2a.*Grounds and buildings of Elementary and Secondary schools(K-12 grades), whether the school is private or public. Affirmed under J-S22025-16 PA Commonwealth v. Goslin, 2016**. - PA Title 18, Chapter 9, Subchapter 912 .
    2b. Within 1000ft of a school unless you have a license/permit issued by the state in which the school is located - US Title 18, Part I, Chapter 44, Subsection 922(q)
    3. Certain Department of State buildings - by regulation
    4. ****Places off-limits by Federal Law or regulation, IE: military installations(exceptions for hunting at some bases), Federal Government buildings, after the security check point in airports,etc.
    5. Any private property where a landowner, tenant or person so authorized to maintain property has asked you to leave because you are carrying, or where the property owner or tenant has placed signs or placards denoting that guns are forbidden - Title 18, Chapter 35, Subsection 3503
    6. Detention facilities, correctional institutes, or mental hospitals - Title 18, Chapter 51, Subsection 5122

    If you do not see the place in question in the list above - then its NOT off-limits in Pennsylvania. Yes, you may legally carry in a bar, tavern, club, or church in PA.

    No law against carrying in either of those places, other than private property rights of the owner/business not wanting firearms on the property. Concealed....is concealed!

    If you are referring to the pa license to carry a firearm. it is not a CCW. It is more. There is no law against carry in a restaurant or bar. However, they are private property and they have the right to prohibit carry on their property. Hence for, refer to it as a LTCF

    Wouldn't that be "It's a LTCF"?


    You wouldn't say I have an license to carry firearms.



    The fun never ends here!
