No Guns Allowed Signs On Business Storefronts

Those signs don’t amuse me.  Dom Raso doesn’t play that either:

Dom-Raso-NRAI always just assume whatever gun (usually a revolver or a 1911) which is on the sign, are the ones that are banned.  Others take a “Concealed is concealed” approach.  I’ve heard that in some states those signs aren’t even LAW anyway.  It would be like putting a “no blue socks” sign up in your store… sure you could ask people with blue socks to leave the store, telling them their money isn’t any good there, but it’s not like you can press charges or anything.

Thoughts?  Do you spend money at business which have those dumb signs?

They have no legal force in a lot of states. Usually the worst you can be charged with is criminal trespass and that’s only if you refuse to leave if asked. In others they only do if they meet certain specifications.

They have the force of law in My state (NC). And no, they don’t get my business.

What’s the charge if someone’s found carrying somewhere with a sign? Is it considered a place off limits?

In NC it is a misdemeanor. Class 2 I think.

Texas specifies the language that must be present for it to have force of law. Oh, and it must be in contrasting colors, in both English and Spanish, and must meet a minimum height requirement (1.25″ if I remember correctly). Otherwise? Forget, I’ll carry if I want to.

GA is the same as PJ’s state. It don’t matter what color socks we wear!

I never look for them, I figure no one is going to know I’m carrying anyway.
Ohio makes it a misdemeanor, but only if you refuse to leave and the business presses charges.

Just don’t give them any business and let them know why in a comment box/email/phone. They want what’s in our wallets so you can bet you’ll get their attention.
