It is not legal for government owned buildings to be posted. I believe that this applies to any type of gun buster sign, but IANAL.Tracker wrote:Since the sign has no legal standing why would it be a different matter if it's government owned and it doesn't refer to section 30.06? The reason I asked, and haven't gotten an answer, is because Dallas has this type of sign on all of its Love Field Airport's main entrances (for the unsecured areas).WildBill wrote:Report it to whom? This sign is NOT illegal. It is not enforceable, but it is not illegal to post it.Bayoutalker wrote:We went to supper tonight and when we turned into the parking lot of the shopping center this sign was posted just as you turn in the drive. This is not a legal sign and I don't believe they can legally make the entire parking lot off limits. Correct me if I am wrong. There is another drive entering the shopping center and there is no sign posted at the second entrance.
Should this type of sign be reported?
If you were to report it to the shopping center they might decide to post a proper sign.
If the sign was posted on a government owned building it would be a different matter.
IMO, keep it to yourself.
I believe that the signs at Love Field have been discussed in another thread.
