Ahhh, but in Texas the laws have teeth. I think they send SWAT out for printing with your carry gun.Likely means if they see your ccw, shame on you, then they can ask you to leave & you must or be in trespass.
Because it doesn't have the proper wording, the bottom sign has zero legal meaning.I saw this in Texas on the Gulf Coast. I know the top portion legally blocks open carry but how about the lower portion?
The bottom sign is blocking the Spanish translation of the law which is required to be posted if you want to legally prevent OC.Because it doesn't have the proper wording, the bottom sign has zero legal meaning.
The top sign, with some wording blocked, may invalidate it as well.
In Texas, those signs can prohibit open carry by permit holder, with different wording concealed carry as well. But the wording has to be exact and of legal size. The charge would be trespass, not a weapons charge per se. And verbal notification is also required in most if not all jurisdictions.
In this area, posting both the 30.06 and 30.07 signs is a death warrant for businesses. The only place I know that did this was a movie theater over in Abilene. You couldn’t carry at all.The bottom sign is blocking the Spanish translation of the law which is required to be posted if you want to legally prevent OC.
In the real world if you open carry into a place with a no guns allowed sign, you will most likely be ask to leave -
If you don't then they can have you charged with trespassing.
One place I go has two big 30.07 signs at the door - since I CC I didn't care.
I always parked on the south side and entered by the south door - one day I went to the other door on the north side and they had two big 30.06 signs prohibiting CC.
My guess is whoever put the signs up didn't know they were different and ended up putting two of the same sign at each entrance.
I now only go in the south door - as far as I am concerned they did not post the proper signs on the door.
BTW - I think some businesses put up the standard no gun sign that in Texas means absolutely nothing -
I have taken the position that they did this on purpose - they didn't want to prevent me from CCing - if they would have they should have put up the proper sign - but they instead put up a sign that carries no weight to make the liberal customers feel safe.
When the open carry law first took effect in Texas I saw a lot of businesses put up both 30.06 and 30.07 signs -
But after a few months most took down the 30.06 sign - and a few removed both signs.
