Unless there is a published regulation or statute, open carry in state buildings should be fine.

Open car carry is legal but a little tricky due to possible accusations of concealed carry - so watch how you carry in the car.

Word.

Also, if you don't have a carry license issued by Delaware you could run afoul of the "gun free" school zone laws.

The prosecutor has to prove that you knew you were within 3 blocks of the edge of a school property, and so far everyone who's been charged with that has done something else bad, but it's still a threat & would mess up your life until the charges were dropped.
