    All no guns signs are dumb

    But this one is especially stupid.......

    Yesterday I was on highway 280 in Sylacauga, AL and stopped at this Popeyes to use their restroom. I saw the below sign and had to laugh.

    First, the sign has one weight of law in Alabama. And second, it references a bill that was passed expanding gun laws and says you can carry on property not your own as long as you have a permit. So what in the heck is this supposed to do?

    Idiots.......not that I eat there, but Popeyes is on my list of places not to visit.

    Reading the bottom line it appears the High Sheriff is admittedly anti-gun.

    Having not fully read all of the AL code, the sign does seem to notify those without permits that they do not have permission to carry on the premises.

    Are you sure the property owner can't disallow firearms? That would be unique in the U.S.

    Does that mean business can't have workplace violence policies that deny firearms to their employees? Military bases have to allow soldiers to carry if they choose (and have a permit)? Post Offices? Schools?

    Hmmm...it says no firearms or weapons. It's a restaurant. How are they going to prepare food without knives? They are weapons and the sign says no weapons. Stupid is as stupid does.

    I guess I'd have to leave my rapier like wit out in the truck... which ain't gonna happen. I can't leave that lying around where someone could steal it.

    It's a good thing I find Popeye's to be disgusting. No loss.

    I would say from the looks of your statement that the English language is a challenge for you

    no guns allowed signs are simply ignored, if they spot my gun all they can do is ask me to leave and for the most part i'm not in such a place any longer than I have to be.
