    Default PA convention center.... allowed to CC?

    Hello all.

    I'm taking my 5 year old son to the PA Convention Center this Sunday, Jan 7.

    I would like to know if I will be able to make it the building with my edc. I will most likly be taking the train, so i would not be able to store my hand gun if i am denied entry.

    Anyone have any insight, or recent experience?

    Thanks in advance!

    I believe I've heard they only screen for weapons during the tattoo convention. My fiance is at the bridal expo right now, I can ask her when she gets back.

    What will be going on at the Convention Center?
    There are no pacts between lions and men.

    Just an FYI.. their Plan of Ops states "Please note: Firearms are prohibited on the premises of the PCC, inside the building and the surrounding grounds, except for use by authorized law enforcement personnel." https://www.paconvention.com/assets/...53e23a7749.pdf


    They also prohibit Contract security companies and anybody working from carrying a firearm.

    From reading the most of the Operations it would appear the Convention Center is state owned????? If so that would contradict state law on preemption.
