However, upon further review LeCuyer found out that by law a public building within the city or state can’t ban someone who has a permit to carry a firearm.

LeCuyer says according to the League of Minnesota Cities there is only a few places where someone, even with a permit, can’t carry a firearm.

Those places include schools, jails, federal buildings, airports, courthouses, correctional facilities just to name a few.

LeCuyer went on to say that those who can carry a firearm must make sure they have the proper paper work with them in the public place.
