Many states allow concealed carry of handguns or pistols only. Most states' gun laws prohibit carrying concealed weapons into such places as schools, bars, courthouses and so on. Questions regarding the state's laws should be directed to the law enforcement agency in that state to find out precisely what carry restrictions apply.
