There is no law in Ohio prohibiting me from carrying in a bank. My bank has no posted signs banning guns. The branch I go to was robbed last week.
So, would you (do you) carry when visiting your bank?
On the one hand I think it's clearly a place where a BG with gun may show up. On the other hand, I wouldn't want anyone to see me carrying and panic, leading to who knows what.
I carry into my bank everytime I go in. This is especially true if conducting cash transactions. I use my CHL as my second ID to my drivers license.
At one time, I had an account at a financial institution that posted a proper "no handguns" sign. As I was preparing to go on vacation and was making a cash withdrawl of $4000, I was not about to go into the place unarmed. They had NO armed guard to escort me to my truck, either. I was left with only one option. Texas law allows the carry of long guns with license not required. The financial place didn't allow handguns, but said NOTHING about long guns. I walked in with my AR slung over my shoulder.
Man, did I ever attract attention!
