i am living in westcolumbia tx now and there was a gun store here that had a do not carry on the front door. i have no idea what the store was like becuse i refuse to go into a gun store that will not let me carry. its an oxymoron if i ever saw one and i would guess that im not the only one who feels this way it lasted less than a year and is gone.

Here in Indiana those places are commercial aircraft, courthouses, jails and schools. We can however drop off or pick up our kids from school or school run function as long as the weapon does not leave the vehicle. There is also no law against carrying in an alcohol serving establishment.

Banks are also not off limits here, I often visit my bank while oc.

Court Houses, State Buildings, Federal Buildings. That's about it for me. I live in a small rural town. So I do carry in the PO because I am in & out in less than 5 min. Plus Concealed means Concealed. out of sight out of mind.

In NH, there is no class you have to take, and there is no paper they hand to you when you get your permit that tells you where to carry, and where not to. I also have not been able to track down the specific law that lists the places. On the site mentioned above, legally armed, the info is laid out in a terrible way. I'm sure the info's great, but good luck finding it.

I am aware of PO, schools, courts, any govt. building. I have no idea what a 30.06 rule is. Also not sure about bars. No one posts a 51% sign, so how would you know? We may not even have that law.....

The "30.06" rule is the ironically numbered Texas state statute that specifies exactly how a "no gun" sign needs to be layed out (size, typeface, text). If a sign follows those specifications, it becomes illegal to carry into a posted location (you can actually be arrested). If the sign does not meet the specifications it does not carry the force of law. In such a case if you carry in a posted location the most the owner/manager can do is ask you to leave.

Note that this all only applies in the state of TX. Other state laws may or may not recognize "no guns" signs.

I haven't run in to it often, but when I find a business that restricts legal carry, I find the manager and give him a card that I printed up from the Penn.OpenCarry Org.
It basically says that I won't be doing business with them, and why.
