Have him check the property tax rolls. Federal and state property is not taxed.
I have a better idea. Don't tell him, and then he won't put a sign up!
In Montana, there isn't any law against open carry in a bank or a bar. I verified this with the MT Dept. of Justice. Has anyone in Montana done this???? I am tempted, just to see what happens, but I'll be sure to carry a copy of the email with me.
A lady at my bank and my wife thought that it was a Federal Offense to do so, and I promptly corrected them. The lady I talked to said that if she saw a person OC'ing a gun in the bank, she would call the police. I let it go, but now that I think about it, it pisses me off that she would call 911 for a law abiding citizen OC'ing. As if by the very act, I am automatically there to rob her and the bank.
I will be calling and talking to the bank manager as well as the company president.
On a side note, while opening an acct at a local Wells Fargo, the lady helping us thinks that it is wrong and anti 2A to have to have a concealed weapons permit!!!

Not to change the subject, but I think General Motors has a better chance of being federal property. After all doesn't the Government own 51%

The bank manager knows that I carry and in fact we've been trying to arrange time for her to join me at a local range. Her SO is a gun owner, as was her ex-husband and she's never touched a gun in her life.
Well...obviously, while a BG might want to rob a bank, he certainly would not be so crude as to ignore a "no guns" sign on the front door...so that should solve the problem.
As far as being federally insured making them a federal institution, it would seem that the passage of the health care bill has the potential to make a substantial portion of the populace federal institutions...
EDIT: After a few more minutes of thought, I realized that the "theory of insurance" would make the majority of retirees over 65 federal institutions now...
