    The way I see it, if you can understand the meaning of the sign from a distance of 10 feet, then the sign meets the criteria.

    Thats the only standard mentioned. It says nothing about words. It just says "readable from a distance of 10 feet."

    If someone were to get cited for carrying, could they articulate to a Judge that they didnt understand the meaning of the sign?

    I think not.
    Anything other than that is speculation.

    In
    addition to the places enumerated in this section, the carrying of a concealed
    handgun may be disallowed in any place in the discretion of the person or
    entity exercising control over the physical location of such place by the
    placing of a written notice clearly readable at a distance of not less than
    ten (10) feet that the @carrying of a handgun is prohibited.@ Provided no sign
    shall be required for private homes and any licensee entering a private home
    shall notify the occupants that he is carrying a concealed handgun.
    So I would just be hoping for a good defense attorney? The law is for everyone the way I see it....we must abide, and so must the others. By the law, a 'blanket', "universal" sticker don't cut it in my book, or by the law....but I'm not one to go telling businesses that display this uneducated dumbness that they are wrong.

    Gentlemen, ask your selves this...

    It may be legal to enter into a posted place if it is not worded exactly in accordance with the law, but more importantly, is it the right thing to do?

    As people that carry guns for protection, we should hold ourselves to a higher standard, and entering into places that specifically prohibit firearms is not holding ourselves to a higher standard.

    As for invoking the 5th Amendment about talking about it on this forum, that is the right thing to do.

    As such this thread is closed.

    Well, I saw this too. Sometimes it's all in how things are worded. That's the way I looked at it, but you're right in a way. I'd never beg to differ with that.
