  1. At least in some of the slightly more free states those signs hold less magic. We cc types have been known to safely not see the sign since it does not hold the magic of the force of law. Where we are concealed means concealed and the sign is a suggestion. Imagine the bad guys surprise when the soft target returns fire.

    1. Here in Maine you carry concealed into a non school gun free zone like that and get caught, you WILL get arrested and lose your right to carry. No guns is not a suggestion even for honest guys like us. Stupid yes but its the law. Id check your state VERY carefully.

    2. Surprisingly, there are very, very few of these signs I’ve seen here in Western New York state, outside of the City of Barffalo. They are so rare that the few times I’m forced to go into the city, they stick out like sore thumbs to me. I’d be willing to bet downstate and that sewer NYC are awash with them, but up this way, no one seems all that concerned with those signs.

  2. In Indiana, that sign means jack all unless they catch you, if they ask you to leave you must comply or it becomes trespassing. If you comply there is zero consequence.

  3. I don’t know what that company does, but the other sign on the door says “Flammable Materials,” so there might be a practical reason for banning firearms on the premises.
    As a general rule, I avoid any business that doesn’t honor the Bill of Rights inside its walls. If you don’t give up your rights under the First, Fourth, Fifth, etc. Amendments when you walk through a door, why should you give up your rights under the Second?

  4. The magic sign didn’t work, 5 dead, 5 cops shot by a guy getting fired. Purchased the .40 Smith years ago, Illinois foid revoked in 2012 or 2014. No info on where the ammo came from, several empty mags found at the site

    1. Illinois f__ ked up.

      (According to ABC NEWS) They issued him a FOID Card even though he had felonies and domestic violence convictions. He bought the guns, and when he went for a carry permit, they finally did a thorough background check and discovered he was prohibited. They revoked his FOID Card.

      They sent a letter telling him to turn in his guns.

  5. There’s the legal question, and there’s the employee rules question. Even if such a sign isn’t backed by legal sanctions, violating it if you’re an employee is presumably going to get you fired. So these signs — or even just stated policies that don’t come with actual signs — have real teeth, for the defenseless victims inside.
