    I hope that this will help you out:

    Just click on the map for AR, and you'll find the off-limit places listed at the bottom.

    It's probably ok, however if it is a city sponsored area, they can post it and it would be off limits. If the private owner posts it, then you can't carry there either. If not posted, shouldn't be a problem.

    Yup, here in Arkansas if "Johnny Jihad" wants to find an unarmed group of people the place to go is a church or a school. Those are "no carry zones" and only criminals will be carrying there.

    Welcome to the natural state Sjones.

    We do in fact have a castle doctrine in Ar. We also consider our property (front yard for ex.) as curtilage.

    Like many states we (ccw's) have to inform a home owner when entering his or her home that we are carrying a firearm.

    I actually have my ccw class paperwork on me (laws, etc) if you need something more particular.

    I hope you like humidity.:supergrin:

    I hope you have a nice stay here in our state, Sjones!

    Here's the "Prohibited Places" statute. Be aware that there were some amendments in the last legislative session, but I think they were mostly technical corrections.
