About the only place I see signs like this are in bars. This IS Texas, by God! I imagine there are a few places in far left wing Austin that post signs like that but Austin is not really in Texas. Austin exists in some alternate plane that actually folds time and puts San Franciscans in the heart of Texas.

I agree in informing the management of your displeasure and intent to avoid their establishment. If they do not care about your opinion, you know where NOT to do business.

Maybe a bumper sticker that one could affix to the front window of the establishment that reads something like " Attention criminals: Commit your crimes here with out fear of reprisal or armed self defense"

It is just my opinion, but when I see the dinky little no gun signs, I just smile and walk in anyway. My gun is CONCEALED so they never know I have it, and those dinky little signs are not the leagle ones the state of Texas mandates that they put up. So I am not breaking any laws here in Texas, and just carry anyway. Better to be safe than leave it in the car.

last i knew if theres a sign then its a crime, but yea i agree if they cant see it, screw it. i dont think a cashier would get mad at you if you prevented a robbery or saved his life. unless he was liberal

Check your state's laws on posted places of business. If there's no State law prohibiting carry in a given establishment, then all the owners can do is ask you to leave. If you refuse, it may be trespassing, but that's about it.

In Ohio, you may be right. Indiana code does not mention anything about firearms, relating to trespass.... that I have seen.

Sgt, Truevil is correct in Texas. The law requires a certain sign of a certain size, any incorrectly sized sign isn't legal to keep out ccws.

nice, now we just need a loophole that allows every legal gun owner to be able to carry without a licence

While I agree that I don't like leaving my gun in the truck, in NC if you carry in a place that has a sign, you have just committed a misdemeanor for the first offense. You'll have a firearms related crime on your record, you will probably lose your firearm, you'll lose your permit, which I guarantee you won't get another one, and if you do it again it's a firearms related felony. Is it worth it? Maybe to some, but not to me. I'll go elsewhere. Some states like TN have to include the statute and have specific wording, but in NC just the no weapons symbol is enough, as long as it in an easily readable level on the front door.
