    Old thread I know. But in the last couple months the Pilot truck stop in Murfreesboro (I used to stop there for coffee) started putting a sign saying no firearms allowed on premises. I do not know if it's just that location or if it's any others as well. I will be contacting our new Governor (who ran Pilot for a while if he's not still running it) to explain why this formerly loyal customer will no longer be patronizing his family's business.

    I recently took a road trip cross country and don't recall seeing any signs at other Pilot stations or Flying J stations. (Pilot bought Flying J earlier this year)

    As a mater of fact, I didn't see any no firearms, handguns, etc., signs anywhere I stopped the entire trip.

    I was told in the last couple days that they took them down. Went by this morning and sure enough they're gone. Must have been enough gun owners speaking out on the issue and Haslam realizing that it would hurt him really bad politically.

    No signs on Krogers here in North Alabama, at least at the one that's right down the street from us.

    Same with the local Applebees. In fact, I'm not aware of any overt anti-gun stores in the Huntsville/Madison area. There's probably some but I don't shop a lot.

    I know the local Starbucks is used by the North Alabama contingent of the Alabama Open Carry meetings.

    In NH you're prohibited from carrying federal buildings and Schools.

    However, on private property (including stores, theaters, restaurants, etc.), the property owner can set a “no guns” policy, ask you to leave if you’re carrying, and have you arrested for trespassing if you don’t leave, but otherwise you’re legal. If you have a concealed permit and have your weapon truly concealed, you shouldn't have a problem.

    (Info above from pgnh.org)

    That's kind of funny. Buffalo Wild Wings isn't posted here in Buffalo.

    (I'm not touching the post office can of worms)
    There is currently a lawsuit brought by a couple in Colorado to change the Post office can of worms into a definitive "Yes You Can", open or concealed or both. Whatever is legal in that particular state.

    In the nine states of which I have direct familiarity, banks are not one of the places banned by law. Nor are churches anywhere anyone isn't an idjiot who wrote the law.

    FWIW, I work at the Sportsman's Warehouse in Albuquerque, NM in the gun dept. Our store allows both concealed carry and open carry without exception. However, they draw the line when someone comes in, comes back to the gun department, and then removes his pistol from the holster in order to try it out with other holsters. We don't care for that as most people that do this will not render the firearm safe before trying other holsters! They simply leave them loaded! Otherwise, we don't care if you carry or not. I really thought this was store policy for all of the stores. I haven't been to the store in Colorado, though.

    In NH I've read that no business has the right to tell people they cant carry, and that only the state can say where it is or is not legal to carry. Although it seems like most of the cops here, like most cops I've come across, dont even know the laws they've sworn to enforce. So when someone sees a gun and calls the police it turns into a scene. I cant tell you how many stories I've heard where open carriers were asked for their permit In a state that doesnt require a permit or registration.

    Only place i wont carry here is where they told me i couldnt in my CCW course.Pretty much just the normal,no federal buildings,banks or places that sell and consume alcohol.As far as stores and such i dont look for signs before i go in.If i have a CCW on me they wont know anyways and ill be damned if myself, or one of my family, will become a statistic because some friggan idiot manager has a power trip and puts a dumb ass sign up.The reason i got the CCW is to protect myself and my family from harm and i will do that till the last breath leaves my body.

    In Missouri, it doesn't make any difference what signs they put up. You are legally permitted to carry anywhere that isn't specifically banned by state or federal law, such as hospitals, schools, government buildings. Private property owners and businesses can put up all the signs they want. They can't stop you from carrying there. Now if you are careless, and let someone see your gun, and it causes a ruckus, they can ask you to leave. But beyond that, anything goes. So I don't pay much attention to who does or doesn't have signs posted. And Missouri gun laws are mandated state wide. They can NOT be superseded by county or local laws. If you have a permit you can carry anywhere in the state.

    Jvette's quote: "I don't carry in any business as far as they know. Isn't that the idea of my CCW?" is the method I adopted.
    In Florida, signs posted at the entrances mean only that if you are "discovered" they can ask you to leave and unless you want trouble, you would do well to leave immediately and quietly. If not, then there can be trouble. But if you leave immediately, nothing will happen. Just don't give them a hard time or use hand jestures such as, "You're Number One" if you get my drift. Just leave quietly and peaceably.

    There are cards you can print that can be given to a store should you decide you do not want to do business there. The one I have (Sorry, I can't get it to run though Photobucket) is two-sided. On the front it has a picture of a firearm and a $ sign. Each has the red circle with the line through it. The meaning implied is NO FIREARMS = NONE OF MY MONEY. Below it are the words:
    I have noticed your sign and will respect your
    wishes by taking my business elsewhere.
    I only shop where I can carry.


    On the backside it says:
    As a Citizen with a concealed handgun license, I:
    • Have no felony convictions
    • Have never been convicted of domestic violence
    • Have no history of mental illness or drug addiction
    • Have passed a background check and have my
    fingerprints on file with the Authorities
    • Have passed mandatory training in both the use
    of a firearm and the applicable law
    Can you say that about your other customers?
    I've played different "cards" over the years.... these....



    If you want to make your own, here are links to the front and back of the cards in a business card format. You can edit them to reflect your state's requirements.

    card front

    card back


    You can get the business card stock at Walmart for $5 per 100 cards

    Indiana is another State where a "no guns" sign does not carry the weight of law. Only a few places are forbidden.

    Last I read, some places are universally no carry. Like Bars(not restaurants that serve booze), POs, courthouses, any government building that does official business, police & sheriff departments & schools.

    Check your State's laws. Some restrictions are universal, and some are not.

    Universal? No, bars and schools in particular vary from state to state. And for the love of Pete, use a font that doesn't scorch our eyes.

    I think in Fl if you are in a restaurant that sells alcohol, and has a bar. you may not be in the bar section but you may be in the dinning section, and no consumption of alcohol while carrying, may be wrong but was told that somewhere, and private signs in FL are not by law, they can ask you to leave , but not have you arrested,

    I've heard it both ways; that it's OK to eat in the bar area, but not belly up to the bar itself or the entire bar area is off limits. As I avoid the bar area like the plague anyway because of the noise and usually they have high tables and stools that don't mix well with my kids, I don't worry about it.

    Private signs carry no legal right by themselves here. However if you are discovered to be carrying an a posted no-carry business, they have the right to ask you to leave. If you don't leave, then you can be charged with criminal trespass.
