What does a legal no guns sign look like. I have seen several signs but don't know the difference. Could someone come up with a picture of a legal sign or a way to tell the difference. I usually go about my business and don't disarm unless it's a school or fereral property. I've seen a few signs in Ohio but have never seen one in Florida.
It depends on the laws of your state.
In Texas, it is very defined.
In other places, there is no such thing as a legal sign.
In other places, any sign is legal.

This is what a Texas sign is required for it to be legal. Bars have a different sign.
includes the language described by Paragraph (A) in both English and Spanish;
appears in contrasting colors with block letters at least one inch in height; and
is displayed in a conspicuous manner clearly visible to the public
"PURSUANT TO SECTION 30.06, PENAL CODE (TRESPASS BY HOLDER OF A LICENSE TO CARRY A CONCEALED HANDGUN) A PERSON LICENSED UNDER SUBCHAPTER H, CHAPTER 411, GOVERNMENT CODE (CONCEALED HANDGUN LAW), MAY NOT ENTER THIS PROPERTY WITH A CONCEALED HANDGUN."
"CONFORME A LA SECCIÓN 30.06 DEL CÔDIGO PENAL (TRASPASAR PORTANDO ARMAS DE FUEGO) PERSONAS CON LICENCIA BAJO DEL SUB-CAPITULO H, CAPITULO 411, CODIGO DE GOBIERNO (LEY DE PORTAR ARMAS), NO DEBEN ENTRAR A ESTA PROPIEDAD PORTANDO UN ARMA DE FUEGO."
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

KAVITY I like that sign. It says it all. Hey guys thanks for the info.
Here's one slightly modified to suit my CCW firearm handling requirements.
To be "legal" in TN the sign has to have on it the Article and Section numbers of TN law and that A and S quoted verbatim (except the Post Office), but I do not go in anywhere that any "No Weapons" sign is posted unless I secure my gun in the car.

It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.
People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.
Some times you don't see the signs until it's too late. This happened to me in a craft store in Massilon Ohio. I've seen very few signs around the area and this one caught me buy supprise. It was my third trip back to the store when I saw it. I don't think it was legal due to it's size and wording. No see gun no harm done.
Fortunately, we don't have that problem in FL...

Here is the link to the KS NO GUNS SIGNAGE.
This is the legal sign but one will also see a wheel gun with the circle and slash (the debate is "Is the latter legal?" Who knows ---do you want to be the test case?)
