I cannot seem to locate an answer to this question in the statutes, unless by private property you mean a business. I was wondering if it would be legal to carry at someones residence without their permission. Had an instance the other day where someone that was invited over to a friends house (on 10 acres) was carrying concealed, I do not know if they have an LTC but they were printing big time. They were not on the property for long, it was just a quick deal, but I was wondering if it was necessary to post 30.06/30.07 signs at the front gate in order to stop it from happening again.

Thanks in advance.
A good way to handle law in general is that unless it is prohibited, it is legal. In this case, the law states that if a person has an LTC, they may carry in public. It becomes trespass by a license holder if they are notified by any of the methods outlined in 30.06 or 30.07 (sign, card, oral notification) that carrying is prohibited in that location. Note that this notification only becomes effective once they leave their vehicle.

No you would not have to post a sign unless you want to avoid handing a card or giving direct oral notification to the individual.
