This is just something that crossed my mind and I'd like some opinions on it.
With all the hoops we jump through to obtain our license, it's a little disheartening when you see the ol' 30.06 sign on the door. However, I understand and respect people's wishes and I'll simply lock my gun in the truck or do business elsewhere. What I was thinking is that there should be a State database that businesses have to register with in order to post such a sign. Just a simple registration process that must be completed before the sign is placed in the window, that way we can know for certain whether a place is posted. I know there are community updated sites, however this would be a State database and would be kept much more up to date with all businesses that currently have the sign in the window.
An example of where the sign can come back to haunt you is a hospital or a church. In Texas, you are allowed to carry in a hospital or a church unless there is the legal 30.06 sign posted on the entrance. However, they only have to have one sign, yet can have multiple entrances. To enter through a side entrance could mean you completely miss the 30.06 sign and would therefore be putting your license in jeopardy and possibly facing criminal charges. With everything we go through, would you be opposed to a State database that a business has to register with before being able to post the sign? It makes sense to me to have a legitimate site that you could look at and know 100% whether or not you are legal to carry in that particular business without worrying whether or not you missed the sign.
I suppose this could apply to a 51% sign as well, though it's much more common sense based for bars. You can pretty much tell whether or not the business establishment you're about to walk into makes 51% or more of its income off of booze.
Florida is pretty simple. The only places I've seen No Gun signs that aren't off limits by state statute are Toys/Babies-r-Us. I've never seen one at any other business.

I don't think that the state should run such a gun buster posting site for the same reasons I don't think it should register firearms owners. Now, if a business or group of volunteers wants to publish such a list, I have no problems with that.

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
So, the government can't publicly disclose information of individuals with carry permits, but they should publicly disclose information of businesses that are gun-free zones?
There shouldn't be firearm registration, but there should be business no-gun registration?

I was going through the web site and noticed that 1 of the movie theaters the I frequent (AMC in the Katy Mills Mall) has a 30.06 sign (according to the web site) at the ticket booth. I have never seen this sign. I have carried into that theater on more than one occasion. Next time I am at the mall, I will have to specifically look for the sign. If so, I guess I will be going the Cinemark down the street.
