    This is an exceptionally bad idea from a public relations standpoint. If you were to be caught carrying in such a place, yes you would be able to escape conviction on a charge of voilating the concealed carry law, but the media would have a field day with such an event. It is obvious that the business in question, and no one has yet identified what that place of business is yet, does not want people to carry concealed weapons there for whatever reason. Carrying in such a place, even if legal is going to be seen as us gunowners acting as bullies in order to get our way. Yes, it may be right that you can legally carry into this establishment. But that does not make it the right thing to do.

    Instead you should engage in a discussion with the management of the establishment. Find out if they are following a company wide policy or excercising local disrection. If they are part of a chain, get the contact info for the district, area, or home office of the chain. Find out who is responsable for the sign and talk to them.

    Politely ask that the sign be removed. Advise the person that the sign that they have posted does not conform to the requirements of SC 23-31-235 and thus has no legal weight. Inform them that if it is their intent to restrict concealed carry on their premises, then they need to post a sign consistant with the requirements of SC 23-31-235. Explain to them that they should not do, and that if they do, you will not patronize their business and will advise others to do the same.

    One of two things needs to happen, the sign is removed and not replaced, or the sign is replaced with a correct one. Either way, we come out ahead. If they simply remove the sign, that is the best outcome. If they replace it with the correct one, that is fine as well. We then make a list of all the businesses that post legal signs and make this list available to other gunowners. We respect the right of the business to post their signs and take our business elsewhere. And all the while we write letters and make phone call to convince those in the respective decision making positions to take the signs down.

    DO NOT explain what the correct requirements are for the sign..... You got to be kidding me ? ..... Just don't patronize the establishment and go on about your business. ... Think about it !! ....

    It's a neon sign beaming a message to criminals: NO GUNS IN HERE - ROB US
