    Default "No Carry" signs

    I am glad our community (at least) provides lock-boxes adjacent to the municipal building metal detectors. This was done specifically to accomodate official and CC carriers, despite our mayor being a Bloomberg syncophant ( a Mayors-Against-Guns nut). Fortunately, our police chief has the ''shall issue'' mentality despite the mayor's self-delusion.

    I too, however, have yet to see any "no firearms" signs, in any variation, in our area.

    By law you have to have a sign "In Plain Sight" to ban guns from any property. If not then they can't charge you with trespassing for carrying. Unless they ask you to leave and you don't of course. Here in VA theres a state law which requires that the sign be at average eye level and Must have the crossed out gun on it. to eliminate the "I didn't see it, or understand it" excuse which is good because a lot of places here put a tiny one somewhere on the bottom of the door. Not that anyone listens to them of course. If MA ever changes there crap gun laws and people realize it, you'll see the signs go up everywhere. At least around Boston. Can't wait to move back
