Arizona Department of Public Safety-Concealed Weapons Permit Unit
I entered a private business with my concealed handgun and CCW permit. The business did not have any signs posted prohibiting weapons. Shortly thereafter, an employee approached me and said they do not allow firearms in their business and I must take the gun off the premises. Can they do that? Yes. Arizona law permits private business owners (or their designates) to prohibit weapons from being brought onto their property, whether signs are posted or not. Private businesses are typically non-government operated businesses such as grocery and department stores, convenience stores, laundromats, banks, office complexes, etc. Failure to obey the request can result in your arrest for trespassing.

My Cosco dose not have a sign. maybe the manager is anti gun. Try a letter to the main office.
Someone posting a sign will NOT get any of my money.
Just another great thing about FL...few, if any signs...I've never seen one...and they mean absolutely nothing.

Why not go in and speak to the store's manager about the issue--let him/her know that they will be losing the business of legal CCW folks if they continue with the posting.

What you said:
Me and all my gun-toting friends, who are probably mentally unstable, militia forming rednecks, or worse, homocidal maniacs, will no longer be potentially terrorizing your other customers.
Seriously, the point to all of this is know what the law allows you to do. BTW, I'll be checking my local Costco next time I need 4000 rolls of TP, 55 gal of Olive Oil and all the free samples I can eat. : )

No, I don't believe it's corporate policy either... we have two COSTCOs here, the older one is not posted and the newer one is.

Very nicely done. I'd love to see her reply.
