Ignorance of the law is certainly not an excuse, especially after you looked at the sign the second go around, but if you go into a new place, and you don't glace at the small print on the inconspicuous sign, are you at fault for having not looked at the rules of the establishment? I do my best to remain inconspicuous when I am carrying in public, and I know NEVER to reveal that fact to anyone, so I'm not worried about tipping someone off.
Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the law say you cannot carry where a sign is posted? In that case the obligation of reading/knowing falls on the CCW holder. Didn't see the sign is no excuse. Ignorance is no excuse. Do you or I have to like it? NO! But that's the way it is.
