Anyone know if 30.06 signs are posted for relief volunteers at the refugee centers?

Reunion Arena has No Weapons Allowed signs, some of the doors have 30-06 signs. Not sure about the Dallas Convention Center....which normally has 30-05 signs.

C, Final Answer.

They have a shelter here in McKinney using an old Wal-Mart. Nearby are Target, Albertsons, and the new Wal-Mart. Have been by twice this week; both times police were there arresting folks for shoplifting.

I do not even shop within a few miles of that shelter, for fear of car break-in.

I haven't been there yet, but I think the situation at the Superdome (tens of thousands of people stranded, waiting for aid and not getting any) is a little different than the situation at the Astrodome (thousands of people displaced and uncomfortable, but at least getting some sort of assistance).

I was thinking about heading down to Houston for a couple of days to help out. Despite what some idiots are doing, these people are in a seriously bad way. That being said, if I'm not able to reasonably protect myself in the process...

Thanks for the info. Has anyone been to the Astrodome or George R. Brown?

entrance to their event.

* A Facility Contractor may not post signs at the outside entrances to
the facility or at entrances of other events prohibiting the lawful carry or possession of
firearms.



This is per their publication
www.austinconventioncenter.com/Planning/ACCPolicy.pdf

Red Cross prohibits weapons in facilities. Can't find you a citation right now.

Don't recall seeing any signs. All the arrivals I saw had been flown in,
and presumably disarmed in the process.




At the Red Cross Dallas Chapter, the sign painted on the door says "No Guns"
Doesn't mean nuthin.

Unless they post 30.06 compliant signage, they are not talking to CHL-holders
