States that allow firearms in sensitive or dangerous places are needlessly endangering the lives of their residents. Prohibiting the open and concealed carrying of guns in locations such as bars and childcare facilities is a critical step towards saving lives from gun violence.

Background

All states place at least some restrictions on who, how, and where people can carry guns in public. While most states address who can carry concealed, and in some cases, openly carried guns, through a licensing process, all states restrict to varying degrees where licensed and unlicensed individuals may carry firearms.

Typically, states prohibit guns completely or partially in areas where the presences of guns is particularly dangerous, such as places where people are consuming alcohol, where tensions can flare, such as at sporting events or airports, or where there is a high danger that the presence of guns might chill the freedom of speech, such as at polling places and legislative buildings.

Though many of the areas where states prohibit gun possession are public or government-owned property, some of the sensitive areas described above are private property open to the public. When guns are not particularly or unusually dangerous on private property, states generally allow owners to make decisions about whether or not to allow guns on their property. In recent years, however, state legislatures that are friendly to the gun lobby have begun chipping away at private property owners’ right to prohibit guns on their properties.

Summary of Federal Law

Federal law restricts gun possession on certain types of federal property and near schools, though this is subject to several exceptions:

Federal Facilities: Generally, federal law prohibits a person from knowingly possessing or attempting to possess a firearm in a federal facility, which is defined as “a building or part thereof owned or leased by the Federal Government, where Federal employees are regularly present for the purpose of performing their official duties.”1

Post Offices: Firearms are prohibited on postal property, including parking lots, whether carried openly or concealed.2

Airports and Airplanes: Firearms are prohibited in “sterile areas” of airports, which are those portions of an airport that provide passengers access to boarding aircraft and to which the access generally is controlled by Transportation Security Administration, or by an aircraft operator, through the screening of persons and property.3 Firearms are generally prohibited on airplanes except when an individual is transporting a weapon (except a loaded firearm) in baggage not accessible to a passenger in flight and the air carrier was informed of the presence of the weapon.4

Capitol Building: Federal law prohibits firearms in the federal Capitol building except as authorized by regulations prescribed by the Capitol Police Board.5

K—12 Schools: The Gun-Free School Zones Act (GFSZA) prohibits any person from knowingly possessing a firearm at a place the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a “school zone.”6 A school zone is defined as in, or on the grounds of, or within a distance of 1,000 feet from the grounds of, a public, parochial or private school that provides elementary or secondary education.7 However, individuals with state-issued concealed carry permits are not prohibited by the GFSZA from possessing a gun in a school zone. For a more complete discussion of the GFSZA, visit our Guns in Schools Policy Page.8

Where guns may not be prohibited

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan’s administration implemented regulations that prohibited guns in national parks and national wildlife refuges unless they were packed or kept in a manner that would prevent their ready use, such as being stored in a locked car trunk.9 Reversing that decision in 2008, Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn inserted an amendment into the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act that prevents the secretary of the interior from making or enforcing any laws that would restrict or prevent the carrying of firearms in national parks or wildlife refuges.

Today, any person may possess, carry, and transport concealed, loaded, and operable firearms within a national park or national wildlife refuge in accordance with the laws of the state in which the park or refuge is located.10

Summary of State Law

All states prohibit the concealed or open carry of handguns or long guns in at least some areas. In many cases, a prohibition on guns in a particular location will apply to guns carried openly or concealed, regardless of whether an individual has a concealed carry permit (CCW). However, some states leave loopholes in which openly carried guns are permissible where concealed guns are not.

Categories of state laws regulating guns in particular locations include:

Government Buildings & Meetings
Government-Owned Land
Healthcare and Childcare Facilities
Entertainment Facilities
Private Property

Government Buildings & Meetings

Some or all guns are off-limits in the following categories of government buildings and meetings in the listed states. However, additional restrictions may apply to these locations. See the Government-Owned Buildings subsection in this section for possible additional restrictions.

Airports

As noted above, federal law prohibits firearms in sterile areas of airports. The following states go above and beyond federal law by prohibiting firearms in general access areas.

Private Property

Recognizing the sanctity of private property rights in the American legal system, state and local governments generally give private property owners the ability to determine whether guns are allowed on their personal and commercial properties.

Some states, however, have begun chipping away at the rights of owners to exclude guns from their properties if the properties are commercial or open to the public. States have encroached on private property rights by either requiring property owners to allow employees or customers to store their firearms in cars parked on the owner’s parking lot, or by immunizing property owners from liability for acts committed with firearms on their properties only if the owner allows firearms.

Parking Lots

In addition to requiring private property owners to allow employees or customers to store guns in their vehicles in the owner’s parking lots, many of the states listed below also require private property owners who wish to exclude guns from their properties to post notice of the exclusion according to specifications.270

  • Alabama (Employees with CCW permits may have pistols and employees with hunting permits may have long guns during hunting season subject to certain restrictions.)271

Civil Liability Immunity as an Incentive to Allow Guns

In order to incentivize property owners to allow guns, some states have passed laws immunizing property owners from liability for any harms resulting from guns being allowed on their property.

  • Idaho (Employers who allow firearms in vehicles are immune)296
  • Kansas (A property owner who allows concealed handguns or provides adequate signage and security to prevent the unauthorized carrying of concealed handguns is immune from liability for any wrongful act or omission relating to the use of such handguns)297
  • Oklahoma298
  • Tennessee299
  • Texas300

Key Legislative Elements

  • The features listed below are intended to provide a framework from which policy options may be considered. A jurisdiction considering new legislation should consult with counsel.
  • All individuals are prohibited from carrying firearms in areas where the presence of guns are particularly dangerous or will have the effect of chilling speech, such as in polling places (Arizona, California, and Georgia), hospitals (Illinois, Michigan, and Texas), and courthouses (Alabama, Oregon, and Virginia).
  • Resist the expansion of, or repeal, laws that require property owners to allow guns on their privately-owned properties or waive civil liability for property owners as an incentive to allow guns on private property.
