The new Perot Museum

Postby Zoti » Mon Dec 24, 2012 4:34 pm

Went there today. No 30.06 but a small sign on the door saying weapons prohibited including concealed guns.

I assume the building is owned by the city of Dallas, right?

Doesn't matter. If it's not a compliant 30.06 sign, it doesn't apply to you.

Not owned by the city I don't believe. As TAM said if it is non-compliant, then doesn't matter anyway.

Went there Saturday with the family. Saw the noncompliant sign and carried away.

I will be going after the holidays. I will take pictures of any signage I see, compliant or not.

You can ask a Perot Museum member to buy you a whole family membership for $85. (15% discount). Last visit on Sat it was packed and by 3:00 PM all ticket were sold out.

I am going to the Perot Museum today. I will try to take a photos of signage and repost later. I plan on carrying unless legal 30.06 signage is posted.

The current sign is addressed to gangbangers and people illegally carrying, not my mail to read, not addressed to me, so I'd just ignore it. 30.06 signs are addressed to me, that isn't one.
