    Does that sign make it a crime to go in concealed in NC? If not, why do you care about the sign?

    I do not beleive its actualy a (crime) but if there is a posted sign the will ask you to leave, or be escorted out, .........now don't come back and flame me but this is what I have been told

    And as I have said several times keep the dam thing concealed/keep your trap shut and go about your buisness, trying to make a statement open carrying helps nothing

    You forget that a lot of the things that can be bought at Ikea have a lower price tag. Some items over 70% less than Home Depot.

    I haven't seen a sign prohibiting firearms at our local Ikea, but, I do know that they contribute to keeping prices lower at all of the home improvement stores just by the competition.

    Are you saying that you are willing to pay a significantly higher price for something because of a sign that really doesn't have any impact on your life?

    I haven't forgot anything. I've never shopped at IKEA so I wouldn't know. However, if I was shopping and asked to leave because someone noticed my CC I would do so and not return. I don't care how good their prices are.

    If I OC'd into a store and they asked me to leave I would offer to cover up first. If that wasn't an option I would leave and not return.

    As for the signs. In some states no gun signs carry force of law. Luckily I don't live in one of those. If I did, that store would not get my business.

    In Texas the sign that must be posted is very specific, I make it a point to only shop where I can carry, since IKEA may have a sign saying no guns, I would not shop their business, I assume they are warranting your protection while in store for those who do not wish to carry.

    Here in Texas, the law is specific as to the exact wording & type size required on a sign intended to prohibit CHL holders from carrying in an establishment. I ignore signs that do not meet the requirements. The ubiquitous red circle with a gun & and red line thru it, does not apply to those licensed to carry, unless “a person in authority” also requests that you leave (and how we that person know you were carrying?) A Toys R Us in the Dallas area has sign indicating that Illegal possession of a handgun on their premises is a crime punishable as a crime. Really? ILLEGAL possession of a handgun is a crime anywhere you do it.

    If I encounter a proper sign (and so far I have not), I have a card to leave with the owner or manager. The card indicates that I will take my business elsewhere as long as the sign remains. The back of the card lists some facts about CHL holders - facts of which they may be unaware. It may seem silly to do so, but how will the ignorant learn if no one teaches them.
