    Do you CCW when/where you shouldn't?

    My first post. I don't know if there would be many responses to my query but here goes it.

    I was wondering if any members that actually carry a concealed firearm when they are not supposed to. That is for example:

    > It is against the law in their state to conceal carry.
    > There is signage on a business forbiding conceal carry.

    There was a gentleman that posted on another forum that said he does carry a concealed firearm for protection when he goes fishing in isolated areas but the laws in his area prohibits CCW. I understood his reasoning but if he did have to use his firearm for SD, what now? He wasn't suppose to have the firearm in the first place. I just was wondering what is the attitude of the members here.

    I haven't (as of yet) carried anywhere that was off limits. I had to leave the gun in the car before going into DMV, because I have seen cops in there before as security(there wasn't any there that day), plus I needed to use my CHP as proof of residency and didn't want them asking,"do you have it on you now?"
    Anyways, I'm not worried about carrying at a posted buisness. They can just ask me to leave. Not too worried about post offices or federally owned parks either. Courthouses and government buildings I don't think I would.
    But who knows! An ex bosses' wife was grazed by a bullet when that nutcase shot 2 police officers in the US capitol building 10 years or so ago. So unless there's pat downs or metal detectors maybe I should re-think. This is just theoretically speaking,of course.

    You might want to check out another thread " Where don't you carry" That might explain the reason if you don't get many responses to your first post.

    Welcome to the forum, don't be afraid to start more threads if the first one don't go far.

    Just a reminder that the forum rules prohibit discussion of illegal activities.

    So having said that there really is only one correct answer that will be left on the forum.

    I don't carry in places where my permit is not valid or it is prohibited by law/federal regulation. Or, none of anyone's business.

    There are search engine bots running on this forum almost all the time. If you post something it is archived by a search engine in perpetuity. You can delete it from the active posts here, but Google et. al. will have it as a cached page. That means it is accessible to someone who searches for it.

    You admit to illegal activity and it is out there, someone will find it when you least expect it and it will do you the most harm - Murphy's Law

    This is for sure a fact!. I hear all the time of people googleing their name so I tried it a couple of weeks ago and the only things that came up on my name was the stuff I've written in this forum.

    Very similar thread running CLICK HERE

    In most states you cannot be charged with anything for carrying in a business with a sign if you leave when asked. Kansas is a notable exception. You should know the law in any state you intend to carry in.

    Welcome to the Forum! +! on previous comments. Businesses can ask me to leave. There are places where the risk just isn't worth it: court houses, DMV etc. There are also places, like the Colorado wolderness, where I always carry! I don't like other critters higher on the food chain!

    I don't go to places where the powers choose to disallow me to defend myself. There are plenty of alternatives where such restrictions are not attempted.

    Never at a school, courthouse, or federal building. These are illegal in CA.

    Nebraska has an "interesting" law structure when it comes to CCW.

    There is the old CCW law, in which it is a crime to carry a concealed weapon, but there is an "affirmative defense" that the actor was engaged in a lawful calling or employment, and the circumstances were such that a reasonable person would find it prudent to be armed.

    There is the new Concealed Handgun Permit law, which provides a laundry list of places where PERMIT HOLDERS are prohibited from carrying, and doing so would be a misdemeanor.

    ....and then there is the LEOSA, which allows active and retired full-time law enforcement officers to CCW throughout the nation.

    I look at it this way: that aforementioned laundry list of prohibited places refers SPECIFICALLY to "permit holders". I am not a "permit holder".

    I will not carry where there is a possibility that getting caught could prevent me from keeping my CCW permit. It is far more likely that I just would not visit places like that unless there is no other choice.

    Stay armed...legally...stay safe!

    Where can I find the applicable law for a given state? I've been reading about this here for a while. It seems to me that if you aren't really in "trouble" if caught unless you refuse to leave, it would make it a worthwhile risk to take.
