Re: Sign makers are not helping the CC cause

Maybe we should sell 30.07 signs and only 30.07 signs, at a reduced cost. I am at the point that I am relieved when I see a business posted 30.07 and not 30.06. That tells me that they probably won't post 30.06.

How about free. Consider it like a charity donation. I'm in.

Re: Sign makers are not helping the CC cause

Maybe a sign maker should come up with a sign that says something like this: “Pursuant to Section 30.07, Penal Code (trespass by license holder with an openly carried handgun) surely the anti-gun crowd has stopped reading by now, so please just cover up your handgun and come on in. with a handgun t...

Re: Sign makers are not helping the CC cause

I am not sure about your message or what you are trying to say, but it appears that you would rather have more compliant signs posted than less. That position is against my beliefs and contrary to most of the people on this forum. Sign makers make money by making signs. If they can sell two signs i...

Re: Sign makers are not helping the CC cause

Why in the world would you point out a non-compliant 30.06 sign? Because most LTCs do (or used to) respect even a non-compliant sign (correct wording, 1/2 letters for example). Pointing out how really ugly and unwieldy a compliant sign is causes a) Nothing to happen b) Owner to put up compliant sig...

Re: Sign makers are not helping the CC cause

We have a sign shop, but don't do much store front stuff. Have not done any 30.06/30.07. I think the package deal is about right. This is why it's important to point out to owners why a new 30.06 is a BAD idea. They are running off existing business. Pointing this out to sign shops might help also. ...

Re: Impact of 30.06 to businesses

I let a certain TexMex place on I10 know that they lost >>3<< customers, only >>1<< being a CHL (or LTC, ,gotta get used to that). The problem was posting a 30.06 with their shiny new 30.07. In a dozen years they had not thought of that. Hmmm. The auto-response said they try to respond in 24 hrs. Th...

Re: Impact of 30.06 to businesses

There is a Mex place that we sometimes eat at 2 times a week. Saw a report that they posted 06 AND 07, but on further inspection, it was a different location, and I'm not sure if the one on I10 has done something stupid. So, at lunch today, my 12 YO asked if we can really not go there anymore. I sai...

Re: Impact of 30.06 to businesses Postby G.A. Heath » Sat Jan 16, 2016 11:13 pm First off proper 30.06 signs are huge. A business such as a retailer can almost always better utilize that space with advertising to G.A. It is for this that I believe all retailers should be held to strict posting requ...

Re: Impact of 30.06 to businesses

I was thinking more along the lines of force multiplier, where the CHL is the head of household, and there are wife and kids. This is a very real question, because it may have happened to me today. In my case it's 3 people. So, if the the 1 in 20 (5%) CHL number is up to date, that could easily turn...

Impact of 30.06 to businesses

Anyone know if there are some generally accepted estimates as to what the impact to a family oriented business is to the new posting of 30.06? I had some calculations from a few months ago that it could affect maybe 10% of customers. I could recreate the analysis if it's not to be found, if anyone c...
