    If my armed status is noticed and an objection is made, I am happy to leave...whether there is a sign or not.
    Sign? What sign? Oh, that sign. That only applies to knives and snub nosed revolvers. Mine is a semi-auto.
    That is the same law here. You can be asked to leave or disarm if they find out about the gun. If you refuse you can be arrested for trespassing. I just avoid those businesses altogether.

    Much as I hate to say it, that is their right as a private property owner to post those stupid signs. However, I have a right to spend my money someplace else. My view on posting public buildings is something totally different.

Of course, I may be making an erroneous assumption that the cops are largely to blame for the problems.

    The second amendment is still treated as not there in this country.I don't feel that the SCOTUS did us any favor in their Chicago ruling, as the second amendment spells out our right and only that ,it does not say ' here , but not there ' or ' concealed - not concealed ' or that I have to pay a fee , tax or buy a ccw permit or take special classes.Nor does it say everyone must agree its o k to bear arms , in order to bear arms in the USA .
    However......It does say that ' the right to bear arms shall not be infringed ' .And yet in this ( free my ass ) free country that touts so much about its freedom and its great constitution ' the right to bear arms shall not be infringed ' has been infringed ever since it was written in some way or another and SCOTUS & the constitution ignored for over 200 years . Constitutional Rights =
    So who is right ? The ccw or the store owner ?

    Your decision could effect your privilege to carry in this land of the Notso Free .
    Washington didn't use his right of free speech to defeat the British , he shot them.

    I don't absolutely avoid non-statutory CPZs in Ohio, but I am MUCH less likely to patronize a business which removes my ability to defend my own life while assuming ZERO responsibility themselves.

    Here we go again........At least you didnt say they had the "right" to keep guns off the property (that they have INVITED the public onto), only to post a stupid sign...

    BTW.. I agree with the rest of your post.

    Not so sure myself...

    I did vote but I haven't been carrying long enough to really know what I do. I have purchased a small hard-sided pistol box with a padlock so I CAN lock up my gun in the car to go inside someplace with one of "those" signs.

    In my state those signs do carry the force of law and I have to admit I'm rather annoyed by having to constantly look for them to know where I can and can't go while carrying. I live on the border of a state that has a lot of places specified where I can not carry so I need to be prepared there regardless.

    I am of the general inclination to respect the owner's wishes but I would likely stop doing business somewhere due to that. I can't say I wouldn't go in at least a few times possibly to inform the business of my "boycott." There may be an instance where I would disregard "those" signs due to safety concerns as stated above but I don't see that happening too frequently either.
