Does it apply to concealed defensive weapons?? common sense says no, it only applies to those firearms being openly displayed for reasons of commerce.

Most likely people show up there all the time with loaded firearms for repair and service. Usually only takes one instance of an unloaded gun perforating a ceiling for such a sign to show up.
This is exactly how I see those signs. They are concerned about weapons that will be handled, not a concealed weapon that is holstered. Common sense is a valuable tool.

Call me paranoid, but if i am walking in a gunshop (or just about anywhere else) with an uncased & visible firearm, it will have the action VERY obviously open and will be carried in a way that keeps my hand well away from the trigger. Somebody might be waking up from a nap and mistake my intentions.

Nothing new at Browning in Arnold. We transported special weapons from here during the war in SE Asia in the 1960s. Personal carry weapons were never an issue. JonM has explained the problem very well. Don't try to turn this into an antigun attack on Browning. They are a very pro American company.

Local shops can count on common sense to rule. If someone brings a loaded gun in for service or trade bait the shop owner can throw them out. A large company like Browning has the insurance company lawyers dictating signage and company policy.
