It's also like telling the criminals that it's safe to rob this business!

Excellent article, good you didn't try to be rational with irrational people by calling the store. As the saying goes, "You can't argue with stupid".

The only thing I would have done differently is that I would have entered the business and ask for the manager.

I would then tell them what you have conveyed in this article, that I was taking my business elsewhere because of this policy and would respectfully ask that the manager report this to the company.

I quit doing business at a Fastsigns franchise on Manchester Road because of one of these signs. I noticed the other day that they are out of business. Coincidence? Most business owners who buy signs tend to be more conservative on this issue.

Please clarify for your readers. If the location the 'No Concealed Weapons' sign is located in is not specified in RSMo. 571 http://www.moga.mo.gov/statutes/C500-599/5710000107.HTM then it's not an arrestable offense unless the concealed carry permit holder refuses to leave when confronted. Then the charge is trespass and not related to carrying a concealed weapon.

Nicely Done!

There's another "Conceal Carry" sign available which welcomes lawfully concealed weapons.

No store with this sign has ever been robbed. See:
