    I wouldnt "Ignore" the signs either, but hey... I dont exactley look for them. Claim ignorance and leave if approached and keep my money.

    One thing I consider even though I dont know the legality indifferences, most businesses are in leased units in strip malls or rented buildings around here. Its not their private property they are trying to ban you from. Im a bit more indifferent to their ban in thoes situations.

    Home Depot... I know they have seen mine. I reach and strech while Im getting stuff and loading the truck. Hard to hide a hip carry when tossing lumber. I have noticed slight changes in how they act, clam up mostly, but never approached. Very helpfull staff too.

    FL statutes trump any such signs. It's only trespassing if you're asked to leave and you refuse.

    If they were "pro-2A" wouldn't they allow their employees to exercise their right to lawfully carry firearms?

    MOST retail store's have a policy set in place that PROHIBITS employees (except possibly Management or Theft Prevention teams) from trying to stop any theft. Home Depot did not say in this response, that they prohibit employees from having a firearm in their vehicle (which I know, someone here is going to tell me "That does a lot of good in the store"), something that MANY companies are trying to enforce these days.
    Hey, at least there's hope for HD, they obviously understand the validity of CCW.

    I've a friend who is a principal in a company with multiple locations in multiple states. He, and many of the employees of that company have concealed weapons permits of their home states, and some have non-residence permits of other states.

    He told me that no insurance company of which he is aware will write liability coverage for the company if employees are allowed to concealed carry.

    His employees, many of whom are friends of mine, sign in their employee agreement that they are subject to termination for violating that agreement. Many do keep their weapon(s) of choice in their vehicles ... him included.

    He would like it to be otherwise I think ...

    Yep, it's always about the liability.

    Does anyone other than the lunatics running Toys "R" Us believe that a "no firearms" sign would have stopped either one of these miscreants?
    I know when I drive too fast past a speed limit sign it jumps off it pole and covers my window so I have to slow down. Once I slow down it flies back to the pole. It's gotta work for those no firearms signs too. Granted they don't work in Washington but I can legally ignore the one at Toy's R Us so maybe that's why I wasn't tackled by the sign as I tried to enter.

    Firearms laws are about as stupid as telling a blind man to look up.
