    Wachovia should be good to go at least in the NoVA area. I dunno what the deal is with the signs. Needless to say I have a family member that had dealings with the head Corp Security guy for Wachovia(I forget his name now offhand). The conversation was brought up with this guy as my family member called them to let them know their accounts(a few rather large ones) would be closed out after seeing the no guns signs on the door in one of the NoVA branches.

    It was made perfectly clear that carry is fine with them as long as it's per state law and the corp security guy gave him his card to call if there were ever any problems. I'll have to see if he still has the card and I can get the guys name.

    edit:

    I did not know they were not actually "banks" open to public banking. (because of the name I guess)
    I guess you've never actually seen one.

    Won't be long before the government owns the banks if the current administration has it's way.

    Yes that is incorrect, banks are privately owned businesses, even if the gov bailed them out (with our money). Only the Federal Reserve bank is Gov owned, and your not just going to walk in the front door of that place.

    Not quite ...

    From Federal Reserve System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "According to the board of governors: "It is not 'owned' by anyone and is 'not a private, profit-making institution'. Instead, it is an independent entity within the government, having both public purposes and private aspects." In particular, the US Government does not own shares in the Federal Reserve System nor its component banks, but does take all of its profits after salaries are paid to employees, a dividend is paid to member banks that is 6% of their capital investment, and surplus is put in a capital account. The government also exercises some control by appointing its highest-level employees and setting their salaries."

    Also:

    "Twelve regional privately-owned Federal Reserve Banks located in major cities throughout the nation, which divide the nation into 12 districts, acting as fiscal agents for the U.S. Treasury, each with its own nine-member board of directors."

    The Wachovia branch where we bank doesn't have any signs restricting carry. I always carry when I go in.

    ex banker

    used to work for first union which bought wachovia. they had a pic of a handgun with a slash through it posted at the door. i guess they expected any bg would respect that sigh. as far as i am concerned-i am getting old enough so that i don't give a rat's ass about signs. i carry concealed and keep it that way. i don't anticipate any bad situations--but i am prepared. gun would only come out to protect myself should things turn shitty.

    I think Wells Fargo bought Wachovia 18 months ago or so. But I have never seen a no gun sign in a Wachovia branch in Arizona.

    I thought it had been a while, but I was still seeing signs.

    Those of you who feel that the first order of business when a bank changes hands is to check their gun sign have been reading gun forums too long.

    Some states regulate banks.
    Some signs have no value

    Know the laws of your state to be sure.

    I believe the federal issue is if there are federal employees. Some credit unions fit this.
