If you carry ANY weapon, knife, gun, sword, tank, etc., its your job to know your state laws regarding that weapon, including business owners options. Signage is usually just a reminder of these laws. You should definitely vote with your dollars, though.

I use these cards for any business that doesn't allow concealed carry. After you find a business that doesn't allow you in, mailing these or dropping one off every couple of months makes me feel better.

As pointed out, the weapon is not licensed, the person is. This would be standard sinage for an establishment where alcoholic beverages are "served, sold or consumed". The emblem on the top of the sign is from the TABC, The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.

I always assumed it referred to conceal carry.

Thanks for the info, cleared this up for me. These signs don't really seem to say much. Just reminders of the law.

In Florida you get a Concealed Weapons License which permits you to carry concealed firearms, knives, brass knuckles, mace, a telescoping baton...however, I have spent many years walking into stores, including Wally World, with a buckknife in plain sight on my belt and nobody has ever said a word to me.

7point: Most police I've talked to and an attorney say the test on a carried knife is would an average citizen carry it.

3.5" Spyderco-Normal pocket knife, no permit required.

8" Bowie knife- not normal to carry daily, need a permit to conceal.

I'm no lawyer, but I've heard this many times and it seems to make sense. I'm in Florida btw. It's interesting that some states CWP only allows you to carry a firearm. So you can carry a gun, but heaven forbid you're packing a sword, knuckles or slapshot. Silly with a capital S!

I see stupid sings like that all the time. Like its going to stop a criminal. Heck in va the only guns that need to be licensed is class 4 is full auto and superseded. So my carry piece is unlicensed. However I am licensed to carry. And as for all them gun free zones. with the exception of schools ,government building. Bars if your drinking and for some reason churches. The worst thing they can do is ask you to leave. Assuming your not carrying right and someone notices

In TX, it's a misdemeanor to carry a concealed handgun without a license, unless you carry into an establishment that sells alcohol. These signs went up at Walmart near my house when Walmart started selling alcohol.

As said, unlicensed possesion is illegal, not posession of an "unlicensed gun". There's no such thing in TX. I can buy a gun face to face with a private owner and pay cash with no paperwork.
