    I was there a month ago and asked my dad if he could carry there. I had assumed not since he was not carrying and when I asked...he told me no carry at the zoo.

    I do not recall if it is posted at the entrance.

    FYI, here are a list of Safety Free Zones in NE

    -Police, sheriff, or Nebraska State Patrol station or office;
    -detention facility, prison, or jail;
    -courtroom or building which contains a courtroom;
    -polling place during a bona fide election;
    -meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or other political subdivision;
    -meeting of the Legislature or a committee of the Legislature;
    -financial institution;
    -professional or semiprofessional athletic event;
    -building, grounds, vehicle, or sponsored activity or athletic event of any public, private, denominational, or parochial school or private or public university, college, or community college;
    -place of worship;
    -hospital, emergency room, or trauma center;
    -political rally or fundraiser;
    -establishment having a license issued under the Nebraska Liquor Control Act that derives over one-half of its total income from the sale of alcoholic liquor;
    -place where the possession or carrying of a firearm is prohibited by state or federal law;
    -a place or premises where the person, persons, entity, or entities in control of the property or employer in control of the property has prohibited permitholders from carrying concealed handguns into or onto the place or premises;
    -or into or onto any other place or premises where handguns are prohibited by law or rule or regulation.

    I don't see anything in the list that prohibits carry at the zoo. It would seem that signs have force of law. The question then becomes two-fold. First, is it posted? Second, are they unable to legally post it?

    Just got off the phone with them.

    It is posted that it is not allowed when entering the zoo. I do not know what 'force' the signs have in NE. If they are 'ask you to leave if found out' or if charges are filed if found out.

    I genuinly appreciate you taking the extra step to find out. However, I had their phone number. I posted here rather than calling because I wanted to avoid calling them. If they weren't posted, I wouldn't want to start them thinking about it. It's never a good idea to ask.

    It looks to me like signs have force of law in NE is that correct?

    Is there a stated penalty for carrying in an off-limits place (beside a school)?

    If it's posted, do not carry. Sucks, don't it.

    The Henry Doorly Zoo has no signs posted not to conceal. I went there 7/27/2014 with wife and friends. We could not find a sign posted. Safe to carry in my findings.

    Ryan, welcome to DC.

    Please note you're responding to a 5 year old thread, the OP has probably already been to the zoo. And what a great zoo it is. Love the Lied Jungle in the winter time.

    As a note, there's a great resource for posted businesses in NE at: UnFriendly Business List | Nebraska Firearms Owners Association

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Here in the South, it's intended to protect endangered species from being served deep-fried w/gravy! Spotted Owl tastes a lot like...Bald Eagle.

    Nothing here has force of law even if posted but I don't carry at theme parks or the zoo. Not worth it especially if your on a coaster can you imagine someone work a cheap holster and that baby comes flying out at the top of a loop lol
