30.07 ?

Postby Allenof5 » Sun Apr 17, 2016 9:32 am

I have seen places with 30.07 but no 30.06 does this mean you can CC but not open carry? I have also seen just the 30.06 and no 30.07

Correct. A valid 30.07 posting prevents open carry, but has no bearing on lawful concealed carry.

You can also open carry a rifle.

And you can conceal carry a rifle past a valid 30.06 sign. 30.06 / 30.07 signs only prohibit the licensed carry of handguns. They have no bearing on the legality of carrying a rifle.

Okey Dokey...

Why would one carry a rifle into a place of business and I'm not referring to a gun smith or attempting to sell, etc.?

P.S. And, because you can isn't really an answer either...

Because there's a 30.06 sign and you don't feel like going in unarmed. A concealed rifle, that is.

And you can do all of the above until they ask you to leave which trumps all of the signs. No pun intended.

ScottDLS ,

Hhhmmm, I've got a couple questions: Do you do that,carry a concealed rifle into 30.06 businesses or are you simply stating one can legally do that?

Plus, why (and certainly it's your choice) give a 30.06 your business or do you do this only when you can't avoid a 30.06 posted business like maybe your doctor's office or someplace similar?

I don't, but a few members of the Forum have said they carry smaller pistol caliber carbines (rifles) like Keltec Sub2000 folder, when they have to go into a place 30.06 posted, like the Doctor or hospital. Likely you'd have to carry in a backpack (violin case anyone?), not on your person. But it is an option.

ScottDLS,

It'd be interesting to hear from those who actually do this.

I have to believe it's relatively rare...

I avoid patronizing 30-06 posted businesses but I have carried an AR15 concealed under my London Fog overcoat. It was sleeting and Whole Foods Market had Good Soap on sale.

I'm not Scott, but I do sometimes carry a concealed rifle past a valid 30.06 sign.

I agree that the first choice is to not give any patronage to a business that is openly against our civil rights, including our right to keep and bear arms. But unfortunately, there are some locations where I must still visit even though they believe in this type of oppression. A classic case would be to visit a relative in a hospital that is posted.

In these limited cases, I believe that it would be completely and totally irresponsible for me to willingly give up the means to defend myself and my loved ones from a potential violent assault. So I do what I am legally allowed to do to defend myself. I agree that a concealed rifle is not the best choice. I would much rather have a 1911 on my hip. But my Sub 2000 fits nicely into a computer bag, and I can have it deployed and ready to act in a matter of seconds. So I have decided that it is my next best option.

And to answer your follow on post, yes it is rare.

If you can legally carry a rifle are your 2A rights really oppressed? Inconvenient, yes. Oppressed, no. At that point isn't it really just a dress code?
