    Here in NC they will prosecute you under this statue.......

    The sheriff shall issue a permit to carry a concealed handgun to a person who qualifies for a permit under G.S. 14‑415.12. The permit shall be valid throughout the State for a period of five years from the date of issuance.

    (c) Except as provided in G.S. 14‑415.27, a permit does not authorize a person to carry a concealed handgun in any of the following:

    (1) Areas prohibited by G.S. 14‑269.2, 14‑269.3, and 14‑277.2.

    (2) Areas prohibited by G.S. 14‑269.4, except as allowed under G.S. 14‑269.4(6).

    (3) In an area prohibited by rule adopted under G.S. 120‑32.1.

    (4) In any area prohibited by 18 U.S.C. 922 or any other federal law.

    (5) In a law enforcement or correctional facility.

    (6) In a building housing only State or federal offices.

    (7) In an office of the State or federal government that is not located in a building exclusively occupied by the State or federal government.

    (8) On any private premises where notice that carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited by the posting of a conspicuous notice or statement by the person in legal possession or control of the premises.

    I'm not a para-legal and I haven't played one in a school play or anything but I'm guessing you may pay some fines, lose your job, and/or do some time but you and those you defended would be alive. You won't be getting a bill for this legal advice so don't call me as an expert witness or to defend you in court.

    I like their reply and now I can shop there in good conscience. I like to follow the rules when I can and I avoid shopping anywhere that displays an anti-gun policy by sign or other action.

    In Florida, we don't have that law. There is nothing in the law that says you CAN'T carry on private property. That may be their policy and they have the right to ask you to leave if they find out you're carrying, but that doesn't make the fact you are carrying an illegal offense. So that brings up the interesting question of, if what you're doing is against store policy, but not illegal according to state law, what would be the out come after an incident in the store.

    Does that make more sense?

    Actually, I would refer to the previous comment from a Home Depot employee regarding that North Carolina statute. If what he says is correct, then the local store is not in compliance with corporate policy, and I will guarantee you that the guy in the local store is not the legal owner of the premises. Even the in control of can be questioned, as that control comes from the corporate level.

    If you see that sign, report them.

    Here in FL there is no need to ask any business about their pro or anti position on firearms.
    Signs mean absolutely nothing...there are very few of them anyway.
    If one is carrying in the correct manner, no one is going to know your SD business.

    Most corporations do not allow individual store/managers to set a lot of "policy" for the same reason many states (and hopefully more) have "preemption" laws on guns--if anybody and everybody sets their own rules, no right hand knows what the left is doing. Franchises, on the other hand, are individually owned and operated, paying a hefty fee to use the brand name and products. Home Depot are coprorate stores, not franchises.

    In the case of the NC store having a "no-guns" sign, I would document it by photograph and submit it to corporate HQ as a complaint. I guarantee you HD does not want to lose business to Lowes, especially in NC!

    This. In Florida where the OP lives, signs have no weight of law and mean nothing! Why go looking for trouble. I am not even clear on why he wrote the letter in the first place.

    So you asked because you "heard"? No sign, no anti-gun policy, you heard...... You like to follow the rules, but what rule would you be violating even of there were a sign?

    Hello All you gun lubers....We need to tell Home Depot when we shop there we support them. Lord knows I sure let others know when I will not be back. If we do not tell them we will continue to get what we are getting. Off my soap box now, thanks for listening.
