VA "No Gun Signs" Do They have any standards?
Okay. Forgive me if this exists elsewhere, I did a forum search but didn't find it.
I was out at a restaurant today, and as I entered and I saw a small sign (perhaps 8 inches by 8 inches) that showed a little stick-figure cowboy, and the words, "Sorry Pardner. But Unless You're the Law, Your Firearm Must Stay in the Car!"
As it happened I wasn't carrying because the restaurant had alcohol, and I don't think the law that the VA legislature passed is in effect yet.
It reminded me of another time, at a movie theater, where I was carrying, and I noticed a really tiny sign in the corner near the doorway, which had a picture of a revolver with a Red Circle X on it. The picture was perhaps the size of a U.S Quarter. I do not even know how I saw it, I just happened to glance in that direction and spot it. and so was forced to return to my car.
Handgunlaw.us says that it is unlawful to carry a concealed firearm on private property where prohibited by the owner OR where where posted prohibited.
My question is: Do they have any standard by which they must adhere regarding signage? Size or Language? Or is the coin sized no-firearm sign, or the little stick figure cowboy sufficient and if I happen to miss it, I'm looking at a trespass charge?
