Every jurisdiction is different and laws must be respected, of course. Here in AZ a sign is considered a request by the operator, and unless they can reasonably prove that I received the request (by signing something, for instance) they can't legally enforce the sign. Now if you are asked by the operator to leave and don't, then you get what's coming to you when the police arrive.
I actually take it a step farther than most. I try very hard not to patronize establishments with policies like these. Even more, I have a letter that I print on letterhead (I pastor a church...so it goes out on that letterhead because much of my life is spent serving others, taking them to coffee or running an errand or something like that) and send to them asking them to reconsider their policy and requesting a call from the management. Until I get that, I regret to inform them that I can no longer recommend their establishment to my congregation or spend any money there.

For me, part of CC is a responsibility to respect laws and other rights. I either choose to shop somewhere else or if it isn't worth it to me to drive x miles to do so, then I lock it up in the car and go in. I've had a few converstions with store managers about it...and I've converted a few over and a few not. It's not that big a deal to me. My concern is not causing any controversy which could cause any issues with me having my CC permit. Other people's property they have a right to say no weapons or not...I ask them to respect my rights, so I need to respect theirs. Just my perspective.

Sorry, Guardian, I don't see the economic sense here. The money gets spent, just elsewhere. So the business that loses lays people off, the business that gains ends up needing to hire more and the people who lost their job on the one hand gain a new one on the other with an establishment without the anti-gun policy. The same money gets spent either way, so economically it does not put anyone out of work to choose which establishment to purchase from.

Either way we choose to employ some and not others, whether that is at a grocery store or a car dealer or a clothing retailer.
I'm NOT calling anyone names at all, just trying to clarify the economics of the situation.

I hear Jahwarrior, we are going towards the same goal, we just have different avenues at approaching that goal. Nothing wrong with that partner. Either way, we both agree with keeping our weapons and staying armed and defending our rights and our loved ones. Everything else can be worked around or out.

I do whatever state law says I have to. Nothing more, nothing less. I really haven't seen many but I don't really go looking for a list of rules when I visit a store, mall or anyplace else, either. I suppose if they had a glaringly obvious sign at the door, I'd shop elsewhere but I've never seen one.

Signs mean little in Indiana.
Post all the signs you want; if you do not see my gun, I am not breaking the law.
If you see my gun and ask me to leave your place of business, I am not breaking the law unless I refuse to comply.

I agree, at some business's you really have to search around to locate a sign. I think some businesses put them up due to their insurance policy but they must not care much because some business's don't exactly go out of their way to make the sign noticeable.

In MO, if a retailer has the 'proper signage', all they can do is ask you to leave, if you refuse they can call the police, then they ask you to leave or issue a ticket, and escort you out...

section by any individual who holds concealed carry endorsement issued pursuant to this section shall not be
a criminal act but may subject the person to denial to the premises or removal from the premises.
With that said, I believe it is the insurance companies holding them hostage to put up the signs, because as said previously, most have an improper sign, or almost none. On the other hand, places that contribute to anti-gun orgs, I definitely no not patronize...
