    No Gun Signs

    I was recently on vacation in Michigan. I was surprised that I didn't see a single no guns allowed sign in any store or restaurant. Here in Texas, many if not most stores have not gun signs although usually of the benign "No unlicensed carry" type of sign.

    Was I just lucky not to see any signs in stores in Michigan or is that normal? If normal, any idea why?

    I have lived here all my life....57 years and I have never seen a No Guns sign.

    They might be somewhere, but I haven't seen them.

    We may not have jobs here, and our governor may need to be deported back to Canada where she belongs, but we got guns!! Woohoo!

    When Minnesota passed concealed carry about six years ago, a lot of businesses posted signs. After all, "blood would be running in the street" if it passed.

    A year or two later, the vast majority of signs disappeared. People started to realize that a) legal gun carriers weren't the problem and b) it was effectively the same as a "Rob me, I'm helpless" sign.

    Oh, they're around. Usually in financial institutions and the occasional mall, but they are very few and far between.

    We were in MI for a short time a few weeks ago and never saw a sign anywhere.

    -------------------------------------------

    After ALL the things I've said about never seeing a 'No Firearms' sign in Florida...I saw my first one on Friday.

    Attention Gainesville residents...the Oaks Mall now has these little information signs near the each of the doorways. If you scan the entire sign and look in the lower right-hand corner, it says, "No Firearms or Illegal Weapons". It is among 40 other items of information.

    Of course signs meaning absolutely nothing in FL, but the idea of putting a sign there is disappointing. Actually, I had to put my glasses on to read it...very tiny print.
    Depending on how one would interpret the sign...my firearm and other items are NOT illegal weapons for me.

    That seems pretty stupid. I assume by "financial institution" you're referring to a retail bank... in which case that is probably one of the most important places to carry.

    "Stupid" is a pretty good word for it. It isn't all of the banks and credit unions, just certain ones. Their theory is, if you don't like it, go somewhere else. Which is usually what I do.

    You're living in the wrong part of Tx. I don't ever see any signs, even the generic ones, except at medical facilities...
