It's not the destination, it's the journey.

Since the stupid signs here in Indiana do not hold the weight of law, I ignore them. If they figure out I am carrying and ask me to leave, I will. No big deal.

I got a business not far from where I worked to take their stupid signs down after they got hundreds of email and calls telling them that they would not eat at this particular sandwhich shop again until the signs came down. Emails went to the corporate HQ for this chain as well.

I'm also from Texas and this is true. If the sign does not contain specific wording of specific sizes and in contrasting colors then it is not law. I still don't go into companies that have gun grabber signs up. I used to love church's chicken...then I saw the sign they had posted claiming guns weren't even aloud in their parking lot or on the sidewalk in front of their building. The nerve. If the company says no guns, I go to their competitor that doesn't. And if its a place I absolutely have to go, then I leave the gun in my car.

In Florida those No Firearms sign are worthless and most ignore them, but you need to be know and obey Ohio law.

Same here. In fact, I go out of my way to seek out the manager and explain to him/her why they are losing sales. A local grocery chain here recently caved and took down their signs because of it.

Here in Nebraska any no gun sign counts, even if it's scribbled in crayon. I lock up my guns for those places in my car in a safe under my seat. But I do my best to avoid spending money in places that don't want a legal responsible gun owner to enter their premises.

In the fortunately rare cases I run into, I use a Center of Mass safe.

If the sign is the official sign, as mandated by state law, I pay attention to it. But, if it is a hand-scrawled one or other: no way! They do not hold legal weight.

Since I live in Texas, I just laugh and go in. Here in TX they have to have a very specific sign:

Careful friend, the law says that a sign on a store is "constructive notice" that you should have known not to carry inside. Whether you saw it or not is irrelevant.

Welcome. I keep my gun loaded and in a car safe under the seat when I can't carry.

The only time I'll take my gun off is when I have to run into the bank or PD, in which case it goes in the center console. In MT, the signs do not hold the weight of law, so if I ever do see them, I'll either go somewhere else or ignore them. If they ask me to leave though, I am required to, so I will.
