    Is it a crime to disobey the sign?

    Can anyone point me in the right direction or give me a resource to determine if the do not carry signs posted in front of a business are legally binding. California? Is it a crime to ignore the sign in CA.

    Why dont you start with this current thread? And there are others too, if you search.

    For the actual laws, you should have access to that on state and county firearms laws online.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    You will have to check your local statutes in regards to signage. In soem states, disregarding a legal sign is, obvioulsy, against the law and subjects you to loss of your license or other fines and/or penalties.

    In NH where I live, signs have absolutely no legal binding whatsoever.

    Actually, it must be visible and substancially similar to what is stated in TCA 39-17-1359.

    Always remember that city, county, and municipalities may exempt themselves from posting signs. Some signs posted prior to (I think) 2001 do not have to meet TCA 39-17-1359.

    Sorry MoHawk; it is illegal no matter if you are caught or not! There maybe no penalty if you are not caught but "Il" means against or not and well "legal" means law or 'doable' so "Illegal" means DON"T DO IT!! but again the fine, loss of permit and visit with those nice LEO's and judges, who have no sense of humor, is only if you get caught.

    Illegal means “ILLEGAL”, not matter if you get caught or not. If it is illegal you do not do it.
