NO! He doesn't. GFZ applies to private schools too!
When not acting in official capacity, he needs to comply with MN Permit law.
Yes the FGFZA applies to private schools; however, the MN permit satisfies the exception.
That does not satisfy the state ban in schools. Even the FGFSZA says that satisfying the federal ban does not mean a state ban is trumped.
So all what is left to satisfy is the state school ban. Which MN has, as you know as the VP of a gun rights group in MN., has a state ban with some exceptions.
So to satisfy the state ban in a private school, the OP may use LEOSA.
I think you hare having trouble understand how the FGFSZA and MN state version co-exist in tandem.
State permit = satisfies the federal law.
LEOSA = exemption from MN state ban if the school is private.... But not for public schools.
Not to be rude, but as a VP of a state gun group, you should have a better understanding about how two separate laws work in tandem.
This isn't hard to understand, but instead of understanding the WHOLE picture, you are only looking at one aspect and berating someone over it who clearly has a superior understanding of the issue.
Since MN is difficult for you to understand, let's use an easier example.
Connecticut has had a ban on guns in schools since 1998. I can carry in a private school in CT because I have a CT permit (meets FGSZA requirements) and my LEOSA ID trumps the CT school ban for private schools.
So LEOSA + CT permit to carry pistols and revolvers = I can carry in private schools in CT.
A CT permit holder can not carry in a CT school.
A LEOSA person can not carry in a CT school or within a 1000 feet because of FGFSZA.
I can not carry in a public school in CT because even though my CT license complies with FGFSZA, it doesn't comply with the state ban and my LEOSA ID does not trump the state ban like it would for a private school.
