    Breaking up with my bank

    When I started my small business, I opened an account with Regions because I liked their online banking system and the fact that I could feed cash into the ATM with no deposit slip or envelope and it would be deposited to my account.

    Today I was making the rounds and I drove past a Regions bank branch. From the street, I noticed the gun buster sign on the door. I turned around and went back to the bank and read the sign, which properly posts the place per the law. I hid my Glock in my truck and walked into the bank. I told the teller that I'd like to close my account and she asked me to have a seat and someone would be with me shortly.

    A few minutes later a man identified himself as Eric and asked how he could help me. We went to his cubical and I told him that I wanted to close my account. He asked if there was a problem. I told him that my company policy prohibits me from keeping company funds in a bank that is posted with "no guns" signs. He asked "you do realize why a bank would prohibit guns, right?" I gave him a blank stare.

    My account wasn't very large, so I don't imagine that the bank cares, but it is the principle. I got my business money out and now I'm shopping for a new bank.

    I would have asked him why they would want to exclude law abiding citizens the opportunity to protect themselves... And then ask how many robberies he has heard of taking place from a person legally carrying a firearm...

    My bank has no signs! Yet another reason that I like it there. Good luck in your search!

    Not legal to carry in a bank in Florida anyways, so a moot point for us Floridians.

    My answer to his statement would have been along the lines of
    "Of course I do, So whoever decides to rob the place doesn't have to worry about anyone being able to stop them, after all we wouldn't want the poor criminal(s) to get hurt now would we"
    When Guns Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have guns

    Good thing they put up that sign so they won't be robbed by gun toting criminals anymore. Shouldn't all liquor stores and banks have them?

    That's kind of strange you mention it for Florida. Florida statute 790.06 lists all the places and I don't see it on there.

    (12) No license issued pursuant to this section shall authorize any person to carry a concealed weapon or firearm into any place of nuisance as defined in s. 823.05; any police, sheriff, or highway patrol station; any detention facility, prison, or jail; any courthouse; any courtroom, except that nothing in this section would preclude a judge from carrying a concealed weapon or determining who will carry a concealed weapon in his or her courtroom; any polling place; any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district; any meeting of the Legislature or a committee thereof; any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms; any school administration building; any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose; any elementary or secondary school facility; any career center; any college or university facility unless the licensee is a registered student, employee, or faculty member of such college or university and the weapon is a stun gun or nonlethal electric weapon or device designed solely for defensive purposes and the weapon does not fire a dart or projectile; inside the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport, provided that no person shall be prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, which firearm is encased for shipment for purposes of checking such firearm as baggage to be lawfully transported on any aircraft; or any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law. Any person who willfully violates any provision of this subsection commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

    Meh. In my case that's a moot point. The bank doesn't want armed resistance to a robber and I'm not going to use deadly force to prevent a bank robbery. That money is insured against such acts. But I'm still not going to do business in a bank where I can't carry my gun if I so choose.

    Incorrect. F.S. is clear that banks are not off-limits. Even with a sign, you would only need to leave if asked to do so.

    I stand corrected, Eagle Eye. I don't know why, but I thought I read somewhere that bank carry was off limits. Apparantly not. And to think I disarmed just yesterday to go in the bank......

    Oh! I would LOVE to have gotten into that argument with him!
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    may be a stupid question but because banks are on government property wouldn't that make it property that you can not carry on? Unless that is just a Florida law....Sorry for this I am just curious as I have really only read up on the Florida CCW laws.
