I appreciate the replies. Lesson learned on this one, no more unknown visitors to the property.
Back when I was new to CHL/LTC, I had similar concerns. 11 years later, not so much. People are frequently armed in this state - frequently lawfully, but not always. Signage only keeps out the ones you don’t really need to worry about. In fact, it keeps out the very ones who might end up being on your side in a scrape with a bad guy with a gun. There’s a famous quote from Suzanna Gratia Hupp, who said:
How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual... as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of.
I’ve extended that in my personal outlook towards other individuals. I can choose to view each individual as part of an unruly crowd, or I can choose to view them as my trustworthy and productive fellow citizen.

If a bad person enters my property, armed and with evil intent, he’s at least outnumbered by one - as both my wife and I are at home and armed - and he’s outgunned by .... well...with as many loaded guns as there are in my home, he’s outgunned by a substantial number.

I wouldn’t allow anybody to roam a property of mine unattended and without permission - armed or not. But similarly, if I allow them on the property, then it isn’t relevant to me if they’re armed or not.
