Select Your State
If you are a property owner, do you know how to give visitors notice that you do not allow firearms onto your property?
Do you know if your state requires separate or different signage if you want to allow concealed carry but not the open carry of firearms?
Most state laws regarding the carry of firearms, open or concealed, differ from one another and some states do not have specific firearms carrying-related laws. Where states do not have laws specific to the carry of a firearm, no trespassing statutes and signs can give a property owner the ability to prevent firearms from being carried onto the property.
In addition to state laws, there are also federal laws that prohibit the carry of firearms and weapons into federal facilities and courts. While you can carry a firearm in a national park (subject to state/local laws), the law still prohibits firearms from federal facilities, which will have no firearms signs posted at their entrances (see a version of a federal weapons prohibited sign).
If you are a property owner and want to prohibit the carry of firearms, whether totally or in part, specific no guns allowed signs might be necessary in your state. These state-specific no gun signs often have unique designs and mention or quote state statutes prohibiting the carry of firearms where the signs are posted.
