    I live in Kansas. For a "No Gun" sign here to have any legal weight, it must be a particular sign.
    In Missouri the signs have no consequence, unless you are asked to leave. Then you must leave.
    I am not sure what signs mean, or if a specific sign is required in Oklahoma. I looked at handgunlaw.us but saw nothing about signs in Oklahoma.
    The sign I encountered there said "No Weapons" and was next to the "No Smoking" sign. Did the sign have any legal weight?
    Thanks for any replies.

    OK does not have a specific sign like shown on the Kansas AG website because OK law regards any sign or logo as "effective notice". However, unlike KS, even though the sign is "effective notice", it is still just misdemeanor trespassing if told to leave and you don't leave. In OK, I just take the signs as "we don't value your money as a customer" notice and act accordingly.

    I think it is similar in KY----all they can do is ask you to leave, which you better do if you don't want trespassing charges.
