    +1 Texas, I look for signs a little, and metal detectors a lot.

    Around here you don't see ANY signs. The obvious apply of course, Post Office, schools etc. I expect it to change after January 1 though, when the new Shall Issue law kicks in.

    I see what you're saying about the sign posting....HOWEVER, it's less of government restriction and more of respect for someone's private property. If you owned a shop/store, you pay the bills to keep the place running and you have every right to say if firearms are allowed in or not.

    Of course, we know it would be smart to let customers carry in your store. That goes without saying.

    Sure, the owner has the right...but when some armed psycho with a deathwish walks into the store that i'm in and my gun is safely locked in my car...should I expect the store's owner to protect me? Not very likely.
    I'll have rely on myself and myself alone...That's the reality of this situation.

    I travel to Amarillo Texas a lot of late and a few weeks back as I set eating breakfast in a pancake shack, one I had eat in several times before, I noticed a sign (computer printed, guessing not a 30.6 DougG) above the cash register on the back wall "No firearms allowed." I finished eating my breakfast, not feeling a bit guilty, as apparently the owner had no concern for my safety why should I have any for his rules. I have never been back. The place down the street welcomes me and my PARA. Well at least not a sign saying in affect "I discriminate against gun owners."

  7. I'd bet there are several of us who have at one time or another, walked into a building, where it's plainly against the law, to be carrying, and we are.

    OHIO has some of the most strict CCW laws in the country, we learn that if you abide by the laws here......more times than not you are compliant anywhere else. I hope our laws here will relax in time, why can't law makers realize that we have gone through the proper channels which allow us to carry? I tend to not do business with anybody having the no firearms sign "OHIO is loaded with these signs", and will speak my mind concerning that we are the patrons you should want doing business there.

    What is needed are business' with signs that say "We refuse to discriminate against gun owners, Commit your crime elsewhere"

    I dont know if it would help or make the business a target.....

    Now to answer the original question, I have forgot to remove my sidearm at times. Not at the Duhr times like school or P.O., but concealed means I didnt have to hear about it.
    My way is not better, it is just mine, your way is not better, it is just yours.
    Carry what your comfortable with, there is no "Supergun" Carry how your comfortable, open or concealed, so you have it with you when you need it

    The problem I see with this "il"logic is the "private property" is open to the "general public".

Last week, I was leaving the casino and happened to see a small, metal plaque on the side wall between the inner and outer set of doors clearly stating that no firearms were allowed.

    Clearly, I had been in violation. However, the location and size of the plaque (there was also one on the opposite wall about 75 ft away) had been a factor in my error. So, my "lesson learned" is to really scrutinize large entryways before entering.

    Needless to say, I leave my gun in the car now. However, I discretely mentioned it to another regular player who carries as well. He also had never seen the sign and he's played there for two years (since they opened).

    I also play a lot at Sunset Station. It's a large complex with movie theater, bowling alley, and a daycare facility that is not marked with "No Firearms" signs. However, I was concerned because of the daycare facility and asked the chief of security about the situation. He told me there were no firearm restrictions because the daycare facility is at the far end of the building.

    Ignorance is no excuse.
    SC has a very clear law on what the sign must look like and where it must be posted (all entrances, between 40" and 60" above the ground, etc). It the business' sign does not look like the law states you have a good argument if you get caught. I don't know of any cases where this has come up though.
