    Question about sign

    First off I'm new here realy like the forum and how much information is here. I have two questions. First does anyone know if the sign for no concealed weapons in front of columbiana grande theaters is the correct sign? At first I thought it wasn't but know not so sure that I think about it. This is the theater by ****'s sporting goods in harbison. Second question is how do you interpret this part of the law? It say nothing here about proper signage. However later defines the proper sign. Any ideas? Thanks Justin

    SECTION 23-31-220. Right to allow or permit concealed weapons upon premises; signs.

    Nothing contained in this article shall in any way be construed to limit, diminish, or otherwise infringe upon:

    (1) the right of a public or private employer to prohibit a person who is licensed under this article from carrying a concealable weapon upon the premises of the business or work place or while using any machinery, vehicle, or equipment owned or operated by the business;

    (2) the right of a private property owner or person in legal possession or control to allow or prohibit the carrying of a concealable weapon upon his premises.

    The posting by the employer, owner, or person in legal possession or control of a sign stating “No Concealable Weapons Allowed” shall constitute notice to a person holding a permit issued pursuant to this article that the employer, owner, or person in legal possession or control requests that concealable weapons not be brought upon the premises or into the work place. A person who brings a concealable weapon onto the premises or work place in violation of the provisions of this paragraph may be charged with a violation of Section 16-11-620. In addition to the penalties provided in Section 16-11-620, a person convicted of a second or subsequent violation of the provisions of this paragraph must have his permit revoked for a period of one year. The prohibition contained in this section does not apply to persons specified in Section 16-23-20, item (1).

    (2) the right of a private property owner or person in legal possession or control to allow or prohibit the carrying of a concealable weapon upon his premises.

    The posting by the employer, owner, or person in legal possession or control of a sign stating “No Concealable Weapons Allowed” shall constitute notice to a person holding a permit issued pursuant to this article that the employer, owner, or person in legal possession or control requests that concealable weapons not be brought upon the premises or into the work place.

The prohibition contained in this section does not apply to persons specified in Section 16-23-20, item (1).
    In order to be legal the sings must meet the requirements below. Theree are a lot of signs then do not meet these requirements and have no legal standing, only a request. Section 23-31-235 applies to all locations that are not otherwise covered such as hospitals.

    SECTION 23-31-235. Sign requirements.
    (A) Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, any requirement of or allowance for the posting of signs prohibiting the carrying of a concealable weapon upon any premises shall only be satisfied by a sign expressing the prohibition in both written language interdict and universal sign language.

    (B) All signs must be posted at each entrance into a building where a concealable weapon permit holder is prohibited from carrying a concealable weapon and must be:

    (1) clearly visible from outside the building;

    (2) eight inches wide by twelve inches tall in size;

    (3) contain the words "NO CONCEALABLE WEAPONS ALLOWED" in black one-inch tall uppercase type at the bottom of the sign and centered between the lateral edges of the sign;

    (4) contain a black silhouette of a handgun inside a circle seven inches in diameter with a diagonal line that runs from the lower left to the upper right at a forty-five degree angle from the horizontal;

    (5) a diameter of a circle; and

    (6) placed not less than forty inches and not more than sixty inches from the bottom of the building's entrance door.

    (C) If the premises where concealable weapons are prohibited does not have doors, then the signs contained in subsection (A) must be:

    (1) thirty-six inches wide by forty-eight inches tall in size;

    (2) contain the words "NO CONCEALABLE WEAPONS ALLOWED" in black three- inch tall uppercase type at the bottom of the sign and centered between the lateral edges of the sign;

    (3) contain a black silhouette of a handgun inside a circle thirty-four inches in diameter with a diagonal line that is two inches wide and runs from the lower left to the upper right at a forty-five degree angle from the horizontal and must be a diameter of a circle whose circumference is two inches wide;

    (4) placed not less than forty inches and not more than ninety-six inches above the ground;

    (5) posted in sufficient quantities to be clearly visible from any point of entry onto the premises.

  4. Three types of people on property

    Looks like three different types of property and people on premises here.

    1) If you own a business, you can tell your employees or contractors no weapons.

    So you have the language: " (1) the right of a public or private employer to prohibit a person who is licensed under this article from carrying a concealable weapon upon the premises of the business or work place or while using any machinery, vehicle, or equipment owned or operated by the business;"

    And the language: "The posting by the employer, owner, or person in legal possession or control of a sign stating “No Concealable Weapons Allowed” shall constitute notice to a person holding a permit issued pursuant to this article that the employer, owner, or person in legal possession or control requests that concealable weapons not be brought upon the premises or into the work place."

    The above paragraph means that you don't have to inform each employee or contractor individually of the policy. You can simply put up a notice.

    2) A homeowner who doesn't want weapons on his property. Elsewhere, the law says you have to ask permission before carrying a weapon onto a homeowner's property.

    So, the language without mention of a sign: "(2) the right of a private property owner or person in legal possession or control to allow or prohibit the carrying of a concealable weapon upon his premises."

    3) The sign regulations refer to a business that has public traffic, such as a Walmart.

    Anyway, that's my take on it.

    Rule of thumb, if the sign doesn't meet the requirements in SECTION 23-31-235 then you can carry. If somehow they find out that you are carrying where a sign does not meet the requirements then they can only ask you to leave the business.

    So the business owner doesn't put up a sign, say a guest or client who comes onto the business does not need to be disarmed since he hasn't been informed?

  8. Mello, that would have to be the case. If you aren't properly informed by a business as provided in SECTION 23-31-235 then you are legal.

    I'm guessing that the provision cited above concerning employers that mentions only a notice saying "No Concealed Weapons" refers only to employees and contractors since it doesn't reference the requirements of SECTION 23-31-235 . Of course, it's poor employment policy not to have employees and contractors sign a statement that they understand the no weapons policy.

    But again, I'm guessing.

    I saw a few gamers in the Arcade part of this site as we all know video games have come along way Avery good game as well as fun. Also a new way the Army trains new recruits in this link you can check out a few screen shots and download the game. The best part about it is it cost's nothing ,Nada, Zilch , Zibby. 100% FREE I've been playing it since 2001 with my Brother and a few friends. We use "team speak (Also free)" to talk to each other/ as we hunt each other . It is a lot of fun if your snowed in some weekend. It's almost as if you are there the graphics are soooo good. Keep in mind you need a pretty decent PC to run the game or a good Video card. At the least check out the screen shots. To be 100% honest Games of this caliber are selling for $59.99 - $75.00. Yet it is free go figure!! AMERICA'S ARMY: EVERY DETAIL COUNTS - MEDIA

    I love that picture, is it real or was it a photo shop? If my neighbors ever get wind of my stance on guns I might put one up.
