Re: “No Firearms on Premises” Sign

My understanding of a sign that says "No Firearms on Premises" is that the property owners are informing criminals that they do not have any firearms on the premises and that the location is safe for criminal activity. The sign did no say do not bring any firearms on to the premises. [/sarcasm]
#Context haha thats great.

regardless of the business owners mindset, gun buster signs or "no firearms" signs aren't legally binding. only the 30.06 30.07 and 51% signs are.... like i said worst case scenario, they ask you to leave, cause legally that's all they can do. If they do ask you to leave just give a little nod and say thank you and walk out and never come back. :thumbs2:
Are you sure? What happens if you have a long gun? Are you trespassing carrying past a no firearms sign with a long gun? Your LTC means nothing in this situation. A long gun is a firearm, correct?
this is a LTC/CHL forum... if you wanna talk about rifles theres a whole sub section designated to shotguns and rifles... http://www.texaschlforum.com/viewforum.php?f=87
The OP asked if the sign carried any legal weight. My contention is that the sign does carry legal weight but not for LTC users carrying a hand gun. Similarly, a 30.06/07 sign does not prevent one from carrying a concealed rifle like a Kel-Tec sub-2000 or even an open long gun. This has been discussed many times on this forum. Your blanket statement about the signs not being legally binding I believe to be incorrect in relation to long gun firearms. Have a good day.
but the topic is posted under the "General Texas CHL Discussion" forum which implies he's referring to CC/OC. Have a great day. ;-)
You've been a member here for 8 days, already have >100 posts and you feel that you are the authority on where people should post what content.

Interesting.
No, i just have common sense and this sin't my first forum to be a member of... If someone posts a topic under a CHL discussion forum it's understood the topic is about CHL not rifles (when there's a forum dedicated specifically for rifle talk.)

Don’t forget the 51% sign. It is illegal to carry into an establishment that has an income of 51% or greater of their income from alcohol consumption.

An excellent resource.

Well yeah... I just figured some threw up a "no guns" sign. I'm hoping OP already knew about the 51% signs lol
