Default Businesses not allowing cc

I think we should have a heading on this forum for people to post businesses, chains, and locations which post signs not allowing firearms on the premesis so we will all know who is or isn't firearms friendly and we then can avoid giving these people our business. We just recently won back our right to concealed carry and my permit is applied for, and I see there are signs popping up everywhere, No guns concealed or otherwise, means no money from this wallet will you get.

We have business in Florida that post the same signs. Malls especially, some national breakfast joints and many others.

If I want to go to a mall with such a post, I simply ignore it. The worst thing that can happen is, if you are made carrying and told to leave, you Have to leave. If not you can be charged with armed tresspassing, which is a felony in Fl.

I carry everywhere except government buildings that are specifically identified as prohibited places to carry, but I am quite careful with my cover, and to my knowledge, I haven't been spotted. (except for the time I walked into Walmart with my cover shirt draped nicely over the top of my .45, and then, I am not sure anyone saw it before I did.)

The only places I've seen here in MS with signs that aren't on the list of places in the state laws are the hospitals.

Jareds (the jewelery store) has a sign posted on it's door that makes it a felony to carry in it's stores. I don't know if this is a national policy or a local one. Tenn law makes it a felony to carry in a posted business

Im the same way, i honestly couldnt tell you any business that has a "NO FIREARMS" sign posted because i dont look. I will not carry in any of the obvious places posted in the CC law,all others i will carry "especially in a mall". Last year there was a shooting in one of the malls me and the family go to, some gangbangers shooting at one another. One of the gangbangers were killed "boo f****** hoo!" and around 5 innocent people were wounded. I refuse to be helpless and unable to protect my family

If a business doesn't want my pistol there, they don't want my business. But, haven't come across one in east Texas so far. If I do, I'll be sure to let them know why I am not shopping there.

I have seen that sign in a Delaware store as well...didn't look for it in NJ but would have been a moot point.

in wisconsin a no firearms sign means the business assumes all responsibility for the safety of their patrons. if something happens that requires slf defense actions the patrons can sue that business fir any damages suffered. if they dont post the business has zero legal liability as wisconsin ccw law makes the individual responsible for their own safety.

the best way to deal with it is to educate the owner in a polite fashion on the ccw law here. most do not understand they are increasing their legal liability and should something occur they can be sued for massive amounts for posting a sign.

getting beligerent and confrontational like a lot of the OC crowd does here is not the way to influence people and win friends
