    No firearms sign at AMC Movie Theater

    I noticed a no firearm sign on one of the doors going into my local AMC theater, and because concealed means concealed I just ignored the sign and went right in. The sign was approximately 3 inch by 3 inch on the very bottom corner of one of the doors, and I am even surprised I noticed it. Would you guys have done the same and just ignored the tiny sign and went right in to watch the movie?

    If FL signs are meaningless, therefore, I don't see them, nor do I look. I'm not sure if signs are legal in AZ, but to be legal, I'm willing to bet that they can't be 3" X 3" and in the bottom corner of a door.OMO

    In Missouri the signs are meaningless unless my weapon is showing.

    Enjoy the show.

    I see those signs on a few doors where i live in Texas. I stopped to read the print on one. It said no carrying of firearms by unlawful persons on these premisis. Having a valid CCW permit made me leagal, so no worries.Probably means the same where you live.

    In Michigan you cannot carry if the entire facilty seats over 2500 people. Not just the individual theater you are in.

    In my state that sign carries no weight of law.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    So, if some crazy nut wants to kill a bunch of people, all he has to do is go to a facility that seats over 2500 people, put chains on the doors, and start shooting. He knows no one there will have a gun.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    While the signs carry no legal weight in Virginia, I would not have gone in. If they don't want me to come in with my gun, then they don't want me period. JMO

    in ohio you would be trespassing, and charged only if you refuse to leave. that is if someone spots your gun and you are asked to leave. the signs are leagal and the only real requirement is they are posted in a clear and easily seen location. a faded sign on the bottom of a door or window doesnt carry much wieght. if cited you would have to prove the sign was not posted properly.

    In NC it is illegal to carry into any place that charges admission.

    I was in Southern Ohio and the King's Daughters Medical Center had all kinds of legal warnings and random ORS citings and I assumed it had the weight of law. They do that crap here in the Denver area a few places i.e. Denver International Airport, Denver Zoo, Security Services Credit Unit, etc as if they had some special exception in CRS.
