I look at those No Gun Signs this way..... I don't care to eat in a guaranteed safe working environment for Robbery and people going postal. Given
their Corp response..it's not worth sending Emails or letters over ... but seeing that sign will insure I eat elsewhere and will every time I see one.
I just ignore 95% of the signs because they do not meet the States requirements for size and placing. In Missouri the signs are supposed to be 11x11
inches with 1 inch letters posted at eye level at the entrance of the establishment.
I see hand written ones that look like a 3rd grader drew them on a piece of note paper, I see a lot of those little handguns with a lined through
circle on them. Plausible deniability - if they can't make the effort to meet the requirements for marking then they can't take it that seriously.
Really, the only thing they can do is ask you if you saw the sign, which the answer is always no and ask you to leave. I would leave without
complaint at this point. However, I know no one will see it that is whole point of concealed... If they overreact and call the police it’s the
same thing - they ask you if you saw the sign then ask you to leave. Easy.
The one place here that has a legitimate sign is the bar and that is not even needed since they don't serve food which makes it a no carry place on
the State list anyway.
I really don't see the point of being vetted, investigated and approved for CCW permit all for some private person (or corporate douche lawyer
covering his arse) to just arbitrarily say - not in my store.
I do think a private person's home is another story. I always declare before going into a person’s home and ask them if they mind. I also informed
the doctor just prior to him sticking his hand up my shirt - he was unfazed and we had a long conversation about the 2nd amendment.
ETA: As for the overreaction its simply the intended result of the anti-gun phobia and irrational fear the media wants the people to have upon seeing
anyone with a gun. Rather than assuming the person is just exercising their right (or in the case of these police officers the requirements of their
duty status) of having a firearm people assume it is a potential mad man about to rampage. Shows the indoctrination is working as intended.
