Thread: Is this legal?

  1. #21
    I'm afraid, depending on the local "feelings" about guns one gets put in a defensive position by ignoring the sign.
    It would be up to the "offender" - i.e. large lawyer costs - to "prove" the sign was improperly posted.
    One of those situations where being right costs more than going with the situation.

    False, but there is nothing to stop the sponser of the event from posting signs. If I charge admission to my place of business (assuming that I am not licenced to serve alcohol and my place of business is not a health care facility, religious sanctuary, or school) so that you can lift weights or watch others lift weights, you can carry concealed unless I choose to post signs.

    Yeah, a better way to challenge the illegally posted sign is to engage in dialog with the management, rather than risk any legal complications.

    False, it is in NC where that silly law applies.

    Thanks for that clarification, I thought that either NC or GA had some kind a restriction like that.

    Here is a sign in a Clarksville, TN Gas Station.

    Notice it has a red & white sign mixed among other signs,
    that reads "NO CONCEALED WEAPONS".


    That sign is NOT even close to being in compliance with the TN statute !

  8. In Missouri, the sign really only indicates the building occupants desire that no weapons come in. If noticed, you may be told to leave and you may return w/o your weapon. If you don't follow this instruction, you're trespassing. The local Social Security office had an illegal sign posted on their door. When I went in (left my pistol in the car) with an empty holster, the guard got all fuzzed up. I informed him of the nonstandard signage and suggested if he intended to enforce it, he'd better get a legal notice posted. He was still hyped so I got my phone out and started taking pics of the sign. Next time I had to go to SS office, there was a proper sign and a different guard. Funny how the SS office needs an armed guard at the door.

Boy was I surprised and had to go outside to car and disarm. Can this be upheld by law enforcement if I was caught with a weapon?
    As others have said it cannot. The signs have to be on every entrance of the building, between 40 and 60 inches from the floor/ground, and a particular design that is VERY specific.

    One thing to be careful of though is that quite often the non-standard signs are on places where you can't carry legally anyway (medical offices, banks, bars, etc). I don't think the local cable provider is on that list.

    BTW - Central, SC? I'm just down the road in Seneca.

    Banks are also not on the list in SC. No problem carrying concealed in a bank. Any signs that are not code are meant for bad guys, not sheepdogs.

    I lived in Seneca on Return Church road when we were at Clemson. Paradise!
