In my state, it is not illegal, to violate a posted premises unless it is a location governed by federal law.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
The 2 are VERY different things. A store may ask you to leave if you violate their policy, even though you aren't breaking any state laws. If you don't leave quietly, you could be arrested for trespassing, disorderly conduct, etc. But if you politely leave, you wouldn't be arrested by the police because you simply violated a store policy. So again, violating a store policy is not the same as breaking a law (committing an illegal act)
The only "no weapons allowed" signs I have ever seen in my entire state were in the front windows of 2 hospitals.

I work for a small Midwestern four state financial institution that has a no carry with immediate termination policy, so I have no comment on that other than to say I adhere to the policy. The facilities in my area are all posted at every public entrance. However, there is an eating establishment that says it is illegal to carry a gun in their restaurant because they serve alcoholic beverages. The door is not posted, just this sign high on the wall above the checkout counter. Oklahoma law states, that you cannot carry in an establishment who's primary business is the selling of alcoholic beverages. So, in my opinion, this sign is NOT legal and I carry in there all the time. Concealed of course. What do you think?

Here in Colorado not only do I carry in my bank I OPEN CARRY and have never even gotten a second look, including a sheriffs deputy that was in the bank one day.
Don't ask, don't tell.

Great topic! From what I've read in the Virginia statutes, there's no mention of not being allowed to carry in banks or in financial institutions. Since receiving my CCW last month, I have not entered a bank so I have not had a chance to see if a notice is posted or not.
Any thoughts from the State of Virginia on this topic?

Here in FL you car carry into a bank and I do it almost everyday. It's always IWB so no one can see it so it really doesn't matter to me.

In Tennessee, if there is no anti-gun zone sign then it's fair game to carry.
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -
