Here in Fl we can carry into banks. I imagine it's the same for Credit Unions? Only difference is that accounts are covered up to $250,000 instead of $100,000 (by FDIC)......right?

Maybe the bank manager should put up a sign that says:
"bank failures not allowed here"
then he would never have to worry about his bank failing in this economy.
It sounds to me like the LEO is on strong medicines if he believes that the anti-weapon signs will stop the BG’s. Actually, the effect will be the opposite when telling that it is a gun-free zone.
Banks are not federal property (they might be it soon, but not yet). A bank does not become federal property just because it is FDIC insured.
I always CC when I go to the bank, and I would change bank right away if they did not permit me in with my firearm.

My bank KNOWS I CARRY.( Managers, many employees & Home Office.) WHY ?? I have conducted an NRA RTBAV for them & anotherone is in the works.
- I am because I pay taxes to the IRS,
- I am because I hold a C&R FFL,
- A supermarket is because they are subject to FDA inspections,
- A pharmacy is because they are subject to FDA and DEA regulations,
- We all are if we drive on Interstate Highways because US Laws dictate a lot of what happens there.
Just maybe the above can help point out the foolishness in the theory that because a business (bank) is Federally Regulated, that it suddenly takes on "Federal Institution" status.
I doubt that the bank manager in question has enough working brain cells to understand this however.
If it is a federal facility then it MUST be posted per 18 USC 930
§ 930. Possession of firearms and dangerous weapons in Federal facilities
(h)Notice of the provisions of subsections (a) and (b) shall be posted conspicuously at each public entrance to each Federal facility, and notice of subsection (e) shall be posted conspicuously at each public entrance to each Federal court facility, and no person shall be convicted of an offense under subsection (a) or (e) with respect to a Federal facility if such notice is not so posted at such facility, unless such person had actual notice of subsection (a) or (e), as the case may be.

Hey guys... LOL Thanks I've had a long day, and this made me chuckle
I didn't expect this many responses. I guess a 12+ hour shift is enough time to get some views. Just to set the record straight. I was not there to do banking business. It was official business, but not financial.
I knew he was wrong, but cannot believe he thought he was a federal institution. I will again talk to him at some point to make sure he understands. I will also discuss signage. I do believe that an LEO made the statement, because it makes the sheep feel better.
