Why would one not be allowed to carry in a city/bureau/township building if a police department is attached to the building?
You know, you can always ask what the law is behind their signage before attempting to enter while armed...The reason I ask is that I saw a sign in Forest Hills park saying there are no guns allowed in the park and I wanted to go to their council meeting and complain and I did not want to get in trouble for doing so because their building has the police station attached to it .
It is a lot like saying no illegal guns.If this is the Borough of Forest Hills in Allegheny County (which was the only one I could find), if one goes online and checks out their municipal ordinances, one finds Section 16-104 in their Borough Code listing prohibited acts. One such act prohibited is: "To unlawfully possess, use, carry or discharge any firearms."
The operative word in their ordinance, making it not in conflict with state law, is the word "unlawfully". The ordinance doesn't say you can't carry in the park, it just says you can't do it unlawfully.
The sign may be misleading by omitting that "unlawfully" word.
§ 6120. *Limitation on the regulation of firearms and ammunition.
(a) *General rule.--No county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components when carried or transported for purposes not prohibited by the laws of this Commonwealth.
The states are sovereign.
Your trust is misplaced and mistaken. I am contradicting disrespectfully.
here is a pic of the sign in the park.
He also told me that as a non resident of the borough I could come to the meeting but I could not speak about any issues since I did not live there. :banghead:
