    I have to admit, when it comes to matters of concealed carry, the second amendment, and the public perceptions thereof, my sense of humor gets a bit dry.

    I mean, obviously they wouldn't let me through, but could they really charge me with a crime?
    Ummm, yes...

    "Why don't you try it and let us know!"

    or

    "Yeah, I knew this one guy who did that, and here's what happened to him....."

    or

    "Maybe they'd get a sign and post it after that.."

    etc... But no.. Instead I get my intelligence insulted. But I'm quite used to that around here, so life goes on.
    Just maybe the reason its not funny, is because it relates to GUNS and BREAKING the LAW...What is so funny about that. I fail to see what is funny in all of that. Maybe next time you want a laugh try the off topic section.

    To address why we are serious, read above sentence.

    Not busting your chops,I too have said things before I engaged my brain,but I got your drift that you knew carrying would probably be against the law so you secured your weapons,There are several places I can't carry,or even have a knife,like the VA where I go for treatment,I usually forget about my knife,and have never had an LEO confront me.
    But I would advise in the future not to question Cops why they can carry but you can't will usually get a pretty anal response and get you on their radar,that question is best left to people that can carry it into court,which is why many States now issue carry permits.

    Oh.. now that you mention it, I forgot to say something in my original post. While we were in line, one of the officers was walking down the line and looked at my wife's bag and asked if she had a knife in there. She said no, of course. After he left we looked at each other and laughed because normally she would have a gun in that bag. But the man didn't ask if there was a gun in the bag, he only asked if there was a knife in there. Strange, huh?

    I accidentally carried into a Federal building this summer....I only realized my mistake once I had entered the building and saw the metal detectors. I asked the guards "Why the metal detector?" Answer "DA's office is in the building". Whoops! I asked if I could check my legally carried handgun with them while at my meeting, and was cordially asked to stow it in my vehicle. No drama, but I'm sure it would've been different if I hadn't been courteous to the guards.
    Exercise your 2nd amendment rights....not doing so jeopardizes that right for everyone.

    "Maybe they'd get a sign and post it after that.."
    I used to think this would be a good thing to do. It would put you on notice that to pass that point while armed would be a violation of State or Federal Law. I thought it would be similar to posting speed limit signs notifying people of the law.
    Trouble is with all these local government posting illegal signs regarding gun possession how would we know which ones are legit?

    Give all signs the force of law and make disobeying them a criminal offense.

    The cities that have been illegally posting no weapons signs at parks in violation of their own State laws would love that idea.
