Re: Businesses Posting 30.06/07 Should Provide Safe Storage

The safest place for a gun is in its owner's holster.
I agree. My hope is that they would simply remove the 30.06 sign.

Re: Businesses Posting 30.06/07 Should Provide Safe Storage

Just a few points to clarify:
1. Business Owners have the choice to remove the signs if they don't want the expense of providing locker.
2. Keyless user definable combination locks do not require a key.
3. Suggested wording as follows:

Business owners in Texas opting to post 30.06 / 30.07 notification signs shall be required to provide reasonable accommodation for patrons to secure weapons before entering the premises of the business. Reasonable accommodation is defined as a secure locker with individual felt lined and weather resistant compartments not less than 5 inches high by 10 inches wide by 5 inches deep accessed by a user definable combination lock. Locker shall be secured by concealed bolts to substantial building structure or other suitable structure and capable of meeting the equivalent of the forced entry provisions of GSA class 5W containers (Fed. Spec AA-F-358) for not less than 10 man minutes.

Number of individual compartments shall be based on the lesser number of 10 percent of the total occupant load as defined by the building code in force in the local jurisdiction or two (2) compartments for each 1,000 SF of gross floor area, but not less than two (2). Storage in such lockers outside of normal business hours is prohibited.

Businesses Posting 30.06/07 Should Provide Safe Storage

Businesses posting 30.06 / 07 signs exclude license holders that do not have cars, choose to walk, bike or use public transportation or are employed in such businesses. They have no other choice, but to leave their handgun at home. This has effectively nullified government code 411, sub chapter H and is discriminatory. I have proposed to my state representatives that such businesses be required to provide reasonable accommodation in the form of a secure storage locker outside these businesses.
