    Just to pass it on even if the sign is not state compliant you know by the sign that the owner says no wepons, so if you are caught it is the same charge as if it is a proper sign. But that's why I don't give them my money.

    If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.

    Um, I don't think that's correct. The only sign that matters is the one described in the law. They can ask you to leave if they know you're armed, and you must do so or be charged with trespassing. However, concealed is concealed.

    Where did you get your opinion from?

    Anyone else agree with this?

    Read the Law:

    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.

    If the sign is not state compliant I ignore it. Chances are it may be there to appease the left:-)

    I just had another thought: My old Wachovia branch had a non-compliant sign but I notice that now that it is Wells Fargo the sign is not there. Does that mean WF is gun-friendly?

    I havent seen any at my local WF's either. No sign=no restriction. WF took over and got smart apparently.

    Exactly correct. I'm pretty sure that is the only sign that matters. On the same note, of course one can't carry somewhere prohibited by law regardless of signs or not, such as schools, hospitals, government buildings etc.

    I agree with rrman... and TX is the same way. The only way a building/business is not open to concealed carry (legally) is only by posting the exact, mentioned by law, sign. (Which in TX, the Penal Code Section happens to be number 30.06 - kind of funny, actually)

    If it is any sign other than the legal sign, then press on in (after deciding if you're going to give them your business anyway).

    Laws are written to protect us as well as "them". This keeps anyone from writing/drawing something on a piece of paper declaring a gun free zone and posting it in a window, and then turning around and trying to sue a legal carrier.

    The only thing that may be wrong with this sign is it is positioned to low to ground by law.
