was working at a plant nearby the other day.

at the quality inn and the other hotel next door were stickers, ca 5x10". Silloette of a Glock in a cross bar/circle. said something to the effect of no guns allowed and violaters "will be prosecuted by the property owner" annd said it was placed there by the sheriff.

Is that normal for a no gun sign or is this just some local faggotry?

sorry i didn't think to snap a pic

Had to be put there by the owner/management. The local Sherriff wouldn't do that. The signs in that area that I typically see say " no open carry allowed". It's none of their business if you are concealed. Most local folks have begun to take their business elsewhere when they see a sign like that.

They asked the sheriff for the sign, and the business put it up. Good God, if you are going to put a sign up like that, stand behind it and be a man and say you did it. F'in candy a$$

I do wonder if tax dollars were used to print these signs.

I saw one at the movie theater in Prattville, said it was provided by the sheriff, Prattville chief of police and local DA.


IMO if a business wants such a sign they should have to go procure them on their own.

I stayed in that hotel last year and I don't remember those signs. They must have just put them up. I only stayed there for a week or two until the house we rented was ready.

I spent three and a half months demoing the old Weyerhaeuser plant.
I despise ambiguity, sort of.

pretty slimp pickings in that town. you wouldn't have missed the sign. It is right there in your face. there and at the ohter choice hotel right next door.

Maybe there was some incident w/ some drunken redneck guest or mr patel is a hoplophobic faggot who got skeered when he saw someone OC (legal?).

So that is not a state wide standard sign, evern sherrif can have one printed up per his specs using appp fees?

Still the use of government funds. It does not matter how the funds got in the possession of the government.

That is the big issue with the signs. YOUR money is being used to try to obfuscate the law by a person charged with upholding the law. I view it the same as the Sheriff using the permit funds to print his campaign signs.

What's the sheriff going to do to you if they call him? All they can do is refuse you service. Concealed is concealed anyway.
You want somma dis?

My understanding is they carry no legal weight for prosecution.
Now if they ask you to leave and you don't......trespassing.

I have a better idea: Grow a backbone and don't enter, patronize and definitely not spend money at antigun businesses! Simple concept, all it takes is a backbone.

I may be mistaken, but I think the signs here say you're trespassing if you open carry in their store. If it's concealed then they don't even know it's there, so you're right.
