    There is an app called Posted! - Carry List Anti-Gun Locations. It's $0.99 but it can find stores by your location, you can search and submit business to the database as well. pretty convenient to have on your phone as you typically have that with you when you're out and about.

    Funny that you mentioned that. I know 3 local governments that have informed employees (if not encouraged) that if they have their CPL they may carry. In my city, it is currently permissible to carry into public meetings, but they are trying to change that.

    As for state and federal, I try to avoid those places if I can. Even when I renew the plates on my vehicles, I tend to go after hours or on the weekends and use the vending machine.

    ...you might find that "don't ask-don't tell" is a better plan...don't ask them so they don't tell you not to carry...in TX, verbal notification is binding...

    weapon on me 98% of the time.

    I don't open carry anywhere (why would I?) so who's going to know. Besides I can just go across the street to Trader Joe's.

    The signs do not carry weight in Alabama, so I carry everywhere I can. But... if I do spot one, I don't give them my business.

    Reminds me of a funny story though...

    My wife sees a counselor off-and-on for her ADHD. One time I went with her and she notices that I'm carrying.

    Wife: "You can't carry in here! This is a psychiatrists' office. I signed a form that says you can't bring guns in here!"

    Me: "That doesn't hold weight in Alabama. The worst they can do is ask me to leave."

    Wife: "I still don't think it's a good idea for you to be armed in here."

    Me: "Of all the places where a crazy person will show-up armed; this is one of them. I'm staying armed..."

    I was in a Wherenberg Theater about three weeks ago and thought I was ok. On the way out I saw a miniture no carry sign that wasn't posted legally by law. I just didn't see it. Now that I know what there policy is I won't go back. I wouldn't have gone in if it was posted correctly.

    That would seem to make Ohio a pretty unfriendly state towards guns and gun owners.

    I checked this out as I've been a Costco (and Sam's Club) member since the mid-1990s. I know a few management people in a couple of Costco stores and some are gun owners, so I asked one about the policy and signage. His answer was that corporate policy is indeed no guns for employees or customers (he was unaware if this is in the customer agreement) BUT they don't post stores in this area (in fact I've never seen gun-buster signs in any NH, MA, CT or FL Costcos that I've been in), his attitude is that "concealed means concealed" and that as long as a customer is behaving properly in no way would he even be concerned or raise the issue with the customer.

    He thinks that you are more likely to see signage in areas where OC is more common, rather than in areas where only CCW is the norm.

    Also worth noting, he tells me that Costco has a new CEO.

    If I have to do business with a shop that is posted, and there is no other alternative, I do. If I have a choice I go with the shop that is not posted. Either way I don’t make an issue of it. What and if I’m carrying is no body’s business but mine.
