2. Most retail stores are corporate owned and policy is set by some faceless corporate bureaucrats a thousand miles distant. I have a constitutional amendment on my side that spells out my right. They're concerned with minimizing lawsuits. Again, if the store is properly posted, I simply take my money somewhere else. If they have a noncompliant sign, I'll feel free to enter with my snub in pocket.

Thanks @jmf552 . You've made some interesting points in several posts I hadn't previously considered. I find your points quite persuasive, and I gives me new perspective on avoiding posted businesses. I may choose to avoid them on principle of not funding a business that is openly anti-gun, but I may choose to ignore the sign. TN signs have force of law, but they only kick in when a business owner asks a person carrying to leave. And then it is only misdemeanor trespass should one refuse. I of course would never allow it to reach that point once asked to leave.

Many gun owners are willing to support posted businesses even when other options are available.
There could be a posted restaurant "2A Sucks Pizza" and right across the street non-posted "Pistol Packing Pizza" - "concealed is concealed" would support the posted place.
One movie theater in town is not the same as a dozen restaurants and patronize a posted one "concealed is concealed" because they have good rolls. (whatever)
I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
"Wouldn't want to or Nobody volunteer to" get shot by _____ is not indicative of quickly incapacitating.
Arkancide- Three self-inflicted gunshots to the head with hands tied behind the back.
Active Shooter Response- Assess the situation, Position yourself to gain tactical advantage, Engage perpetrator violently (APE).
The only places I disarm are in a government building or hospitals and some doctors offices when posted assuming I have to go there . Other wise if ( no gun ) signage is legal with in the state and placed properly at a business I go else where .
