    You got it Redding. Most states require signage that must meet certain standards in order to deny our rights. In the early years of CC the anti's were putting out all kinds of propaganda about CC. Any sign would suffice to deny your rights and were popping up everywhere. Finally seeing what was going on laws were passed requiring specific signs. The good thing is most businesses have no idea about the sign requirements. If you see one that doesn't meet the criteria it's hush hush to business. What they don't know won't hurt them and may save their life some day!

    Thanks Redding - nice to know someone on the "inside" :)

    I used to work @ Haywood mall - as a security guard... a long time ago. Way back before it was a simon mall. We were not allowed to carry anything, except a radio, and a mini-mag. Couldn't carry a full size mag light (cause someone cracked a skull with one) and no hand-cuffs either - we couldn't even touch a shoplifter - only ask them to come with us.

    Basicly, we were just to call City, and let them handle it... Ah the wonder years.... fresh out of High school... and yes... I was a Mall Ninja :)

    I think there are signs in the PArking lot as well. It was covered in my class back 02 Feb 2008.

    the mall is off limits. now a store that has a direct entrance, may be questionable, as long as you stay in that store.

    Which mall are you talking about? Haywood mall has no legal signs at all.

    As I understand the SC laws...

    a parking lot sign is totally useless in our state. I suppose it could go under the outside rules but then it must be 3ftx3ft. Even if they have one sign on the main entrance to the mall that doesn't mean anything.... there is no sign on the entrance to sears.... Every door and entrance, public and private, must be posted.

    This is true, The Signs have to be legal aize, and the lettering must be legal size, But I usualy obey all signs, if the say NO Concealed Carry, it avoids all the legal hassel, that they could caus, if carrying where they say not too,,,, (rather keep my money in the bank, rather than give it to an attorney lol)

    BS ... illegal signs can still get you in a world of trouble.

    You may "win" in the end but the fact is they can arrest or detain you, and make your day a lousy one. You want to fight the battle to proove a point go for it.

  9. I still question why so many people worry about all of these illegal signs in the first place. Legally, they have no bearing on concealed carry. Sure, it theoretically could lead to a lousy day for you, but why would anyone know in the first place? Isn't it called CONCEALED carry for a reason. It's not something you flaunt around or talk about. Or do you? It shouldn't be out of sight and out of mind in my opinion. And for what it's worth...I haven't seen 1 solitary "legal" sign anywhere in or around the mall. Hell, I didn't even notice one on the door of the Security/Police substation. I'll ask a couple of my buddies that work with City as a general "hypothetical" question if it will ease anyone's mind.

    I totally agree Redding... one of the important parts of getting a CWP in S.C. at least in the class I took was to learn about correct signage. Knowledge is power and knowing what is legal and illegal is the same.... the belief than any sign should be acknowledged is the same as just presuming you should not carry anywhere any how.

    Come to think of it, I don't think I have EVER seen a "legal" sign in S.C. - I see plenty of your run of the mill, "No" signs around a revolver, but to the best of my knowledge, I have never seen a legal sign.... hmmmm "carry everywhere" he thinks....
