    I did just about as much searching as I could, and couldn't find a definitive answer.
    My 4 year old goes to a montessori school. According to the federal law I read, you cant ccw at a "school". And a school is defined by the state.
    Would a private preschool like this be considered a school?

    Specifically, can I ccw when dropping him off or picking him up? When doing so, I dont actually go into the school, just in the parkinglot to front door, although I know this is still school property.

    Would the teachers be prohibited from ccw?

    Any links would be helpful.
    Thanks!

    Federal law doesn't prohibit carrying on school property, state law does.

    In the federal "gun free school zone" deal those who are licensed by the state are exempt, so you need to review Colorado state laws to answer your questions.

    I know in MI, we can leave it in the car, or open carry on school property with a CPL. I'm exempt from federal law because of my CPL

    Thanks zack. Yes I have a similar document. I have read it and it is still not clear to me if the school is a gun free zone. Im thinking no, you can ccw there as it is really a place of business but would like to be sure.
