Arguable. Depending on circumstances, I'd be willing to risk it. Most places with generic no weapons signs don't have properly posted 30.06, so then I'd just carry a handgun.FCH wrote:If the place also has a no weapons sign, doesn't that also make a concealed rifle illegal?

Yes it's like Six Flags' dress code for men...NO SANTA BEARDS!!!warnmar10 wrote: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?Soccerdad1995 wrote: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.
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.Abraham wrote: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?
Because there's a 30.06 sign and you don't feel like going in unarmed. A concealed rifle, that is.Abraham wrote: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...
