The sign does not meet Tx law. But, try convincing security or the cops if you are discovered. Hospital parking garages are bad places at night. I really do not understand why hospitals seem to be so off limits for ccw. People get mad about their bill?
Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
I had to go to a local emergency room a couple of months ago. Good thing they didn't check my pants pockets. I had a Keltec .380 in one of the front pockets. Oops.....
They actually had the 30.06 sign displayed appropriately. Of course at that particular moment, I didn't care....
Everything turned out alright and I was out 7 hours later.

like posted above, the sign must be in English and Spanish and the letters must be a certain size and visibly posted at each entrance.

Ok, maybe it's me or I'm not getting something here, I understand the sign thing, but if the State Law says no Handguns or Concealed Carry of hanguns on the premises, what difference does the sign make if the words in the law itself specifically state No such as the hospital, maybe I'm just missing something here.
I'll research it tonight after work after I come here, maybe I'm just dense this morning, not like that hasn't happened before in the morning.

The law itself was updated to say that the sign is now required to prevent CHL's from carrying in those types of places.
Could you please tell the address or phone number to this medical center?

Here's the way it was explained to me by my CHL instructor.
You are legally licensed to carry a pistol, and it is concealed from the sight of others, and you are not restricted from doing so by either a 30.06 or 51% sign or school/government/polling place. As long as these three conditions are met, then as far as the law is concerned, you don't HAVE a gun until you reveal its presence.
Note: This rule of thumb does not apply to inquiry by LEOs.
And to the OP, no that sign not a legal form of notification under 30.06.
It might have been binding several years ago, before the law was changed, but not now.
Maybe the hospital administration didn't get the memo.
