Thread: Forgetting to take your weapon off

    Unhappy Forgetting to take your weapon off

    If I'm up, I'm armed. I find sometimes that I will get right up to the door of a clearly posted location and realize that I have to go back to my car and store my weapon.

    IF I'm occupied about something or am busy I have been known to walk right into a building before I remember I have to remove my weapon.

    I had a doctor's appointment last Monday and I was running late. I signed in and at that point I remembered that I had not disarmed. I had to go back out to my car and store my weapon. I have not been to this doctor in over a year because of this requirement. As this doctor is the only one close and everyone else could not see me for at least two weeks is why I went to him.

    It is getting to the point that if I see one of the gun buster signs that I will just turn away and go somewhere else.
    The Second Amendment is about the right to be able to protect oneself from all who would do us harm including Legislators! I came into this world screaming and covered in someone Else's blood, don't care if I go out the same way

    I hear you on that! I use to have nightmares that I walked into the post office and forgot to disarm my self. After walking in the doors slammed shut and locked and alarms went off. Then storm troopers descended from the ceiling encircled me then proceeded to taze and beat me with night sticks. Then I was dragged off to a FEMA internment camps for water boarding and "reeducation". Sounds far fetched but in today's day and age it's more likely to happen.

    I live in the Las Vegas area (Henderson, Nv) and dutifully check for the signs before entry. I carry in several casinos without issue.

    However, about three months ago I started playing poker on Wednesday mornings at the Eastside Cannery casino. Not seeing any postings, I continued to carry while playing. 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.

    I see very few signs in Texas and the signs must be the 30.6 sign that has size regulations.

    We're from FEMA and we're here to help you. Help you go nuts from the paperwork is more like it.

    In Indiana, "clearly posted" rarely carries the weight of law. If found to be carrying, the "posted" locations (except for those specifically identified by law) may ask you to leave, and iff you don't leave, they may charge you with trespass.

    Signage in MO means they can ask you to leave or face a citation if LEO is called. I don't ever disarm in that context. Concealed carry is...well...concealed. I don't expect to get patted down going to the grocery store. This kind of stuff is typical gov't inanity.

    Be cognizant of your surroundings, places and people. Abide by the Law and attempt to remain within those parameters. It's all you can do.

    I find the whole sign concept a bit strange...I also find people who do what signs say to a T even stranger. If you are not a criminal and not planning to use your weapon to harm other people, I say go ahead and carry...Unless it's a courthouse and a metal detector is in use off course...
    Otherwise, why worry. As long as your weapon is properly concealed you should be ok. Just imagine a country where EVERY place you entered had an anti-gun sign and one would decide to abide by the law...Kind of defeats the whole CCW idea? Huh?
