In Michigan back when they first allowed concealed carry we saw a lot of the same signs in front of businesses too, but as time went on and either their profits shrank or they got better educated, the signs went away, now I can't remember the last time I've seen a sign to stop CC..

Print and carry these. They will get the point across, at least with small businesses.

I, for one, never pay those signs any mind. I am not a sheep to be controlled nor one to be sheared when going back to parking lot by lil' Edward G. Robinson wanna-be's!

In wisconsin ignoring the signs is not a criminal offense it is merely a civil forfiture and doesnt go on the record in anyway. Its just like getting a fine for letting your dog poop in the oark and not picking it up.

Personally i just ignore them. I would rather pay the fine than have my parents pay for me and my wife having a dual funeral or me paying for my wife or her to bury me.

The fine is cheaper. Its another instance where its best to follow the three S's. Shoot, shovel, shut-up.

Those signs have never been tested in court. Businesses that are open to the public have been ruled public places in other cases where camera survelliance has been tested.

Spend your money somewhere else. Money talks. I'm sure they have a corporate customer line tell them why you won't shop there and encourage your friends and family to do the same. Aldi is a European company.

We would be safe to rob.

I’d be willing to bet after some discussion about inciting & encouraging crime vs. free speech, the sign will come down. (I really can’t help myself, I’m just an unrepentant subversive. )

There is a bank somewhere with a sign/policy that says something to the effect of;

CCW holders welcome.
Robbers, 'fair warning',
anyone in here may have a gun.
Yeah...my bank has a sign asking you to "please remove hats, hoodies, and sunglasses". It does NOT however have a sign saying "no weapons allowed". For good reason.

If you get robbed or hurt during a robbery at an Aldi's can you sue?

Is this the only grocery store in your area? If not, start sending the manager your receipts from their nearest competitor. Who knows, you might find you like the other store's selection better. Dollars are the votes that count; ask any politician on truth serum.

If it is the ONLY grocery in your area, complain and loudly to the manager, then get his name and the names of any other managers he identifies as being "responsible" for the sign and go bitching to corporate about how you feel DISCRIMINATED against and insulted and how you are researching whether or not your civil rights have been violated (they haven't really, IMO).
