You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
We can now carry into bars which allows us to go the TGIFridays, The Lobster, Chili's etc without having to become defenseless victims.
As for the signs, a private business can post and the sign does carry the weight of law. If caught the penalty is a fine of up to five hundred dollars.
I would like to see this along with the city and county governments being able to post their buildings eliminated in the next legislature. The current law lists any room in which a judicial proceeding is taking place but also allows the locals to post the entire building. Why should I have to disarm to go in and renew my car registration???
Considering that Az just became the third state to allow CC without a permit, I doubt the sign has any legal validity. However the theatre personnel may insist you leave if they notice you're packing.

To the OP, I generally don't spend my money at places that willingly post. I'll let them slide a bit if the state forces them to. I that ever changes, ie restaurant carry, I won't eat at a posted one.
I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

What the sign doesn't know won't hurt it.
(3) (a) Except as provided in division (C)(3)(b) of this section, the owner or person in control of private land or premises, and a private person or entity leasing land or premises owned by the state, the United States, or a political subdivision of the state or the United States, may post a sign in a conspicuous location on that land or on those premises prohibiting persons from carrying firearms or concealed firearms on or onto that land or those premises. Except as otherwise provided in this division, a person who knowingly violates a posted prohibition of that nature is guilty of criminal trespass in violation of division (A)(4) of section 2911.21 of the Revised Code and is guilty of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree. If a person knowingly violates a posted prohibition of that nature and the posted land or premises primarily was a parking lot or other parking facility, the person is not guilty of criminal trespass in violation of division (A)(4) of section 2911.21 of the Revised Code and instead is subject only to a civil cause of action for trespass based on the violation.
I CC in movie theaters in MI, and I'm not breaking the law. At the same time, your statement has merit, as who wants to be the test case (at the same time, who wants to be unarmed in Detroit, Pontiac, or Flint).

I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV... but, I believe that carrying in a business that posts a "no guns" sign is wrong. i would just rather ask to speak to the manager (outside), inform him or her that I will never patronize their place of business again as long as the "no guns" policy is in effect, and then take my business elsewhere.

In Kansas there is a specic sign that the AG has approved all other signs have no legal bearing. The law recently changed and the sign now has to be at eye level to an adult and has to be on every entrance to be legal. If it is the same sign they have on the theaters here I would have carried past, since it is not illegal to do it, if I had to. However, I would have just gone down the street to the theater that allows carry, and handed AMC my NO GUNS = NO MONEY CARD and left.
