Re: JFK Museum and Dallas Holocaust Museum

No gun buster signs that I noticed. But I typically don't "notice" gun busters signs, just look for legal 30.06. There were 2 guys repairing the glass entry doors - so I may have missed it. But definitely no 30.06 sign.

JFK Museum and Dallas Holocaust Museum

I didn't see any really recent posts on these two places, so I thought I'd give an update here.

At Christmas, I had promised my 13 year old granddaughter a trip to both museums (she's interested in historical stuff like that), and she had a day off from school on Tuesday, Jan 21, so we went.

The Sixth Floor (JFK) Museum is no longer posted. That's probably not a recent change - I went there 6 or 7 years ago with my Mom and former SIL. At that time, it was posted 30.06 with a technically non-compliant sign (printed on 8.5" x 11" paper in too-small font). The entire building was posted with those signs then, as the Dallas County Courts are also in the building. I didn't carry inside back then, even though the signs were not compliant, because they also had a couple of Deputies inside.

But now, the museum is totally separated from the court area by an exterior corridor. So the court area is posted 30.06 and 30.07, but the Museum is clear.

We had bought our tickets on line, and I carried happily inside. No metal detectors, no wanding. No real security at all in the 6th Floor Museum, other than a couple of unarmed private security folks. So it was just a normal go in, present or purchase your ticket, and enjoy the tour.

The Dallas Holocaust Museum (across the street from the 6th Floor) - much different. Large compliant 30.06 & 30.07 signs at the entrance. I locked my EDC in the lockbox in my truck, but left my holster in my belt. We went inside, and there's an airport-style metal detector, an airport-style x-ray machine, and a couple security guards with wands.

Took everything out of my pockets - keys, phone, coins, original style Leatherman tool/knife, wallet - all in a bowl along with my wrist watch for the x-ray. When I stepped through the detector - it beeped.

I told the guard about my steel knees and the zippers on my Bates boots. He wanted see the zippers and said that my knees were what triggered the detector.

No wanding - I expected they would find my empty Cross Breed IWB holster from the belt clips, and I'd have to explain why I had an empty holster. But they sent me on through without any wanding, just accepting my statement about my knees and looking the zippers on my boots. No comment at all about my Leatherman knife. :roll:

I just don't understand a place that claims to promote human rights and whose reason for being is a result of a group of people were forcefully disarmed and slaughtered, prohibiting the legal possession of firearms within their building. :banghead:

But overall, it was a good day spent with my granddaughter, with no problems. :txflag:
