There is no state law at present that forces employers, businesses, or colleges and universities to allow guns on their property. A permit to own a handgun, rifle, or shotgun is not needed in the state. However, it is against the law for a person to have a loaded handgun on his or her person or in a vehicle unless he or she has a state concealed-carry license. Unloaded handguns are not considered weapons. Guns are not permitted in state buildings and their parking lots, school facilities, and buses, places of worship, airports, places selling liquor for on-site consumption, and anywhere guns are prohibited by federal law (AR Stat. Sec. 5-73-101 et seq.).
