Gun in car leads to LaBelle High School’s teacher’s arrest
“It should be noted that Mrs. Horton did not carry the firearm into the school itself; it was being kept in her vehicle. She did provide a valid Florida Carry Conceal license. However, Florida Statute 790.06(12)(a) clearly states: “A license issued under this section does not authorize any person to openly carry a handgun or carry a concealed weapon or firearm into… any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms; Any elementary or secondary school facility or administration building.
[...]
Florida Statute 790-115 states persons who have a valid concealed weapon permit for the State of Florida may have their weapons locked in their vehicles on school grounds, “except that school districts may adopt written and published policies that waive the exception in this subparagraph for purposes of student and campus parking privileges.”

The Hendry County School Board policy states the “no guns” rule applies to all property owned or leased by the school district, said the superintendent. That includes the parking lots, he said.

Thank you, Joseph Olson.

So let me get this straight. It's not against the law to lock your carry piece in your car, unless the school district says you can't?
I will never apologize for being an American.
