SO I recently had an informal chat with a new bank manager. He was concerned about the safety of the bank during the holidays. No surprises here.

During the conversation he stated that a LEO had mentioned to him to get a Anti-weapons sign put on each door. (We all know that doesn't stop the BG, but...)

He stated, since then he researched it and found that his bank was a Federal Institution so he was covered already and didn't need signs.

When did this happen?

It didn't happen. The bank might be insured by the FDIC, but it is not federal property.

Let me get this straight. After speaking with a LEO that he has to put up the "anti-gun" signs at the entrances of his bank. Like this will keep out BG's!

He further states that since his bank is a "federal institution" he "legally" doesn't need the anti-gun signs? The next time I spoke with him I would ask him what specific federal law makes the bank he manages a "federal institution."

The next time I spoke with him I would tactfully request to know what SPECIFIC state/federal law to which he was referring. This sounds like someone who in NOT an attorney all the same.

Until this "new" bank manager provides the specific regulation/law I would not take his word for his interpretation on this new bank policy.

IMHO!!!

I wouldn't speak with the manager any further, I CCW and go on with my banking.
Banks are not federal institutions or federal property, just FDIC...:yup: insured.

Stay armed...stay alert...stay safe!

See, this is why I like the signature line of one of the members here (cant remember his name for the life of me right now...) I carry at my bank all the time.

ALWAYS carry NEVER tell

The Bank Manager actually concerns me on how little he knows about the banking system. Just because the bank is FDIC insured does not make it a federal institution. I'd be worried about having my money handled by a bank whose Manager thinks they are a federal institution.

The money in banks is insured by the FDIC. A bank is a privately-owned, for profit business. It is not federally-owned, nor is the property. Your individual state's gun laws will determine whether or not you can carry in your bank, and whether or not the manager can post a binding sign prohibiting concealed carry.

Check your local state's handgun laws.

I tend to believe most LEO support CCW. It is a shame to hear this bank manager receiving such advice from a LEO.

No Carry signs are like kryptonite for felons. It isn't physically possible for a would-be felon with a gun intent on robbing a bank to walk past a No Carry sign into said establishment. A mystical force will overwhelm them and they will appear to be stuck in a spider's web at the front door.

Good cops (and Bank Managers) know this. DUH!

I open carry from time to time and have walked into my bank open carry with police in there. Yeah, sure you get the eye but not illegal, wasn't even questioned.

Are you kidding? A sign is part of the law! The last thing a criminal would ever do while robbing, kill, holding people hostage in worst case senario would be to pass a paper sign!


You got to love anti mentality. Maybe if they put a sign up next to it that said "please don't rob us" that would help too. The only thing a criminal sees with a sign is "no one here is armed, please take what you want"

Here in Fl we can carry into banks. I imagine it's the same for Credit Unions? Only difference is that accounts are covered up to $250,000 instead of $100,000 (by FDIC)......right?

And what is REALLY funny :haha: is that Federal property, according to 18 USC 930, IS required to be posted with signs! :rofl: What a maroon! :spankme:

Maybe the bank manager should put up a sign that says:

"bank failures not allowed here"

then he would never have to worry about his bank failing in this economy.

It sounds to me like the LEO is on strong medicines if he believes that the anti-weapon signs will stop the BG’s. Actually, the effect will be the opposite when telling that it is a gun-free zone.
Banks are not federal property (they might be it soon, but not yet). A bank does not become federal property just because it is FDIC insured.

I always CC when I go to the bank, and I would change bank right away if they did not permit me in with my firearm.
