If you rather not deal with making them, I can mail you some of them. I charge only the amount to cover my costs. I don't make a penny profit distributing these to my 2nd Amendment brothers.

That card makes total sense. I always wondered what the store owners posting the signs were thinking. Were talking about CONCEALED carry...so customers and the owners themselves would never even know you were carrying..so who would you rather have in your store..
A- BG's and non law abiding people carrying illegally with no training/back round checks, who saw the sign outside and are now excited that they are the only ones carrying in the store and would meet no resistance if they wanted to do something stupid... mixed with trained CC'ers without there guns, because they (us) being law abiding enough to get the permits, listened to your sign and didn't bring our gun in.
B- Trained, legal customers carrying for personal protection, possibly mixed with some BG's/no gooders who aren't sure who is carrying/who isn't and would never try anything because of that fact.
The owners/customers would never know who is carrying UNTIL
A- One of their employees is shot and now they have a gun in their face being asked to open the register, and having to comply and possibly die because they banned any CC'er from utilizing their weapon to stop the current threat to their life....
B- They see someone pull a gun and fire at an employee, then hear more gunfire and see the bad guy crumple to the ground where he belongs, then look up and see a CC'er scanning the area checking for other threats, safing his weapon and calling 911.
It seems to me like it would only take a small amount of common sense to think about these A or B scenarios and make a decision not to post signs in a heartbeat, but I guess not?

Everytime positive gun legislation gets passed all the under educated anti gun people scream wild west blood in the streets total chaos murder capitol BS.
In the end it never happens yet even today people still scream it. It is happening right now in TN with the Sept 1 gun in parks law that passed. All the city councils are trying to side step the law screaming how guns in parks are not safe and blah blah blah. Same old BS. '
It has been One years since that school district in Texas allowed guns to be carried by staff in Texas. Not only has nobody been killed, it is not even a big deal anymore.
Stupid is as stupid does.
I've noticed the same thing lately. There has been several places that had signs up but now do not. don't know why they are being taken down but am happy to see them go.
Glad to hear it's not just a local phenomenon.
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything
I say no sign means it is okay to carry. Remember, concealed means concealed.
One of the biggest reasons the signs have gone pretty much away, is that when concealed carry started in Kansas, there was a list of I think 22 or 23 places the law said was off limits and they put up signs immediately. Since then, it has been changed to that if a place did not want concealed carry in their place, they had to put up the sign. Signs dropped off very fast after the new laws went into effect.
A lot of the first signs came from the League of Municipalities here in Kansas. They went around screaming the sky is falling, and if you don't put a sign up, someone will kill you just like the wild west. Kinda like the same system that the United Nations is. They do a whole lot of talking, but don't say anything. We rallied together, had meetings, picnics, and other get togethers to talk about how to fight the idiot politicians. The NO Gun = NO $$ worked in a lot of places, as did just talking in a civilized manner.
A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

1. They took the signs down because they never saw any concealed guns so they assumed they weren't an issue.
2. Of course CHP people are gunslingers. Why else would they go to all the trouble of getting a permit if thy weren't going to shoot someone??? (Anybody remember this anti-gun argument from days gone by?)
