Went to a movie tonight and for the first time I noticed a sign on the front door. It was one of those general house rules, IE....no smoking, must wear shoes and shirt, no outside food or drink and no firearms allowed. So my question is; what does everyone do if you are going to enter an establishment CCW-ing and see one of those signs. Do you leave your weapon in the car, go somewhere else, or ignore the sign and enter. Here in fla those signs carry no weight of the law, so I just go on in !!!!

Conscealed is concealed, since oc has passed we have had a lot of new signs.

Around here they can really just ask you to leave, if you don't its trespassing.

I will leave my iwb gun in the car, but ive most always got a little something in my pocket

That's great, especially the one about exempting CCW holders from those gun buster signs. Maybe they are wising up to the fact that we are not the threats carrying the guns.

I believe that in Florida it has no force of law, but you can be asked to leave and if you refuse you can be charged with criminal trespass.

That is true and correct. As Toney said in a previous post, concealed is concealed. So for me, I'm going on in. If by some chance I'm made and asked to leave, I'll exit stage left !!

I will always be able to defend myself. I always carry IWB or pocket holster. My weapon stays on me concealed - period. After all, gun free zones are areas where you have a much HIGHER probabilty that you may need your gun to protect yourself or your family.

I have a Non-Resident FL. CCW license and have been out of state since last October. Has open carry passed in FL ? I do remember there was some talk about it. Regarding the "No Guns Allowed " signs, the proprietors of those establishments most likely post those on the advice of their insurers as some kind of quasi waiver of liability if something should go wrong. However, that does send the message to criminals that law-abiding people won't be armed in this facility. FWIW, Luby's Cafeteria (Killeen, TX. 10/16/1991) had a similar sign posted, you have to wonder how the outcome would have changed if an armed citizen response had taken place. In 2009, a Boston, MA psychiatrist was near fatally stabbed by a patient, when a legally licensed passerby discharged his weapon, terminated the assailant (Patient fatally shot after stabbing Boston psychiatrist - Local News Updates - The Boston Globe). In short, duck hunting ceases to be a sport when the "ducks" can shoot back.

No open carry here yet. Although I don't think I would even if I could, Better to blend in and not draw attention to yourself. At least you have the advantage of surprise and not be the first target. And you are right about the signs basically sending the message to criminals that its open season on whoever is there. Thats why most of the tragic incidents occur in gun restricted areas.

In North Carolina, No Guns Allowed Signs have the force of law. You may not enter carrying a gun.
The owner has a right to not allow guns but we have the right to not spend our money there. I just
do not patronize these merchants.

That's one way to deal with those merchants, they don't want you there anyway. Here in Fla because those signs have no weight I carry everywhere, banks, theaters, restaurants, stores. If I'm made they can only ask me to leave, which I will do, and like you said i wont be giving them my business in the future. The only places I don't carry are those prohibited by law, school grounds, court buildings, bars, post office, etc.

According to the CCW instructor here in Texas, your not supposed to enter if the business exibits a sign like that. He said just put it back in your vechicle. So far all movie theatres I see here-same thing. I don't really want to leave my weapon in my car either-maybe skip the movie? just my 2 cents.
