View Full Version : Bank Sign Encourages Conceal Carry
As a Concealed Carry Permit Holder, I would love to see more Businesses with this kind of signage supporting our god given right to bear arms.

I just fell out of my F.ing CHAIR!
Do my eyes decieve me?
Is this a joke?

If it is, it looks pretty darned real to me.
No Joke at all. My Group verified it and several other group are all over it. It has become a bit of a hit on the Net now.
The Antis are all over it though, they hate the thought of blood in the bank.
There are several businesses in Arkansas that will provide a billboard at the door inviting Concealed Carry Permits but Excluding criminals and all other illegal guns; usually a gunshop.
Banks traditionally had what is called a circle slash icon with a gun picture in it on the door. It is not exactly a legal no guns sign technically but there are in several states and usually laws on the books on how to specifically prohibit ALL guns, legal or not.
The only ones who can break this are sworn LEO's who are part of a very select Certification (Or specific Training) that allows them to bear arms openly anywhere.
This sign on a bank that is big as Texas is going to make waves and probably ensure it is a secure bank more than ever. We will see.
Some States in the Union are free states and as such you need no permit to carry heat on your belt while doing errands or whatever.

As a (former) LE officer, I whole-heartedly agree with this sign. If more people lawfully carried their firearms, we'd have less violent crimes.

Unfortunately its unlikely I'll ever see this while I reside in IL :angry:
If the People of Illinois has the Collective will and elect Lawmakers to change the laws to those equal to a free state or a shall issue state to join the rest of the USA, then it will happen.
Otherwise... I suggest you vote with your feet, leave the state and take your revenue, taxes income and all that with you. Deprive the State. I have and it is really freedom. Although Arkansas has a long way to go with obsolete laws still on it's books dating back to after the Civil War.
However I cannot fly my favorite airline because Little Rock usually ends up in O' Hare and should I and my luggage be off loaded, then I would be not legal at all there and face arrest.

Speaking of strange laws--I went from one extreme to the other. In Idaho where I was last assigned the laws were fairly unrestrictive for firearms. In fact one little town was trying enact an ordinance that REQUIRED every resident to own a weapon (No kidding)
I PCSed to New Jersey last year and this state has some of the most restrictive laws. People here must cross the state line to PA to purchase hand gun ammo. There are nice aspects of NJ but the expensive taxes and laws like this will not make it one of my potential retirement destinations.
