I KNOW that if I were ever discovered carrying on campus I would be fired. That's not my question. My question has to do with state law... The law is pretty clear about all public schools and K-12 public or private, but I can't find much on private colleges. My question is if somehow my gun falls out of my briefcase and my boss sees it could I be charged with a crime and lose my CCW permit? I haven't drawn on anybody, threatened anyone, or broken any other laws.
In Iowa, private companies no weapons postings don't carry any legal weight. For instance, I carry inside a business, and somehow am discovered. The business can ask me to leave, but they can't press any charges because I haven't broken any laws.... just their own rules. Does that apply to private colleges? I've looked at all the Iowa Code and really haven't found my answer.
