Your friend is not entirely correct. It depends on the location.
(2) Possession of a weapon on posted property in violation of this section is a Class B misdemeanor punishable by fine only of five hundred dollars ($500).
Courtrooms are covered under 39-17-1306
and Schools 1309
. Violations of those sections are Class E Felonies
. You also have to watch out for parks. If a school is using a park, it can become a prohibited location under section 1309. John Harris has commented on the potential 'legal trap" for permit holders previously on this forum.
