In Florida, a sign has no legal bearing on a person with a CWP. Just ignore it and walk right in. I have carried into Disney World many times and they have a no weapon allowed policy.

thats sounds a little off. the rason i say this is because the signs are meant for ccws to know where they are allowd to take their guns. im gunna look into the florida gun laws. it sounds fishy. i dont think a person who is illegaly carrying is goin to even look for those signs

Please do look into it, but you will find out I am right. I’ve had my CWP since 1987 and have study the Florida gun laws quite extensively. A CWP mean I can legally carry my weapon anywhere that is not prohibit by Florida statute. For example, Disney World has a no gun policy and puts up a sign stating that, this sign does not apply to me because I’m legally licensed by the state. Now, if somehow it was made known to Disney staff that I was carrying they could ask me to leave their property and I would have to comply or be charged with trespassing, but not with carrying a weapon.

Minnesota has the same law. If there is a sign posted you can still go into the building and as long as they don't ask you to leave. You aren't breaking any laws. You aren't actually trespassing until they actually ask you to leave. If you leave nothing can happen to you if you don't then you can get charged.

I agree with SGTDEATH, I know the laws are different between states but it does sound a little fishy. In Indiana, when you get your CCW you're told places that carrying isn't allowed. This list includes government buildings (courthouses, jails, clerks office etc), commercial aircraft, schools and school property and ANYWHERE that has a "No Firearms allowed" sign.

Dragunovsks, some state laws do read that if an establishment puts up a no gun sign then you must obey. These signs must conform to the dimensions given by state law or they are not legal. But again, in Florida, these sign have no authority under the law. The owner of a CWP is allowed to carry his weapon anywhere in Florida that is not prohibited by Florida statute. Sign do not carry any lawful weight.
