Being the type facility that we are (a chemical plant) we have the "luxury" of having a controlled gate to everywhere inside the secure area and only one building outside the secure area. The receptionist in that building is one of our security officers, so we are considerably different than a business that is open to the public.clarionite wrote:If I were a business owner that wanted to restrict Open Carry in my facility, I don't think I'd want to leave the confrontation up to my employees. I'd rather post the sign, and if there was someone who carried past the sign have the employee call the police to deal with it. I can't imagine asking employees to be the ones to confront armed customers.canvasbck wrote: I don't think you will see as many 30.07 signs as you think you will. I'm responsible for writing and enforcing the firearms policies at our facility (at the direction of managers). When HB910 passed, I recommended that we update our 30.06 signs prior to Jan 1 to maintain compliance, but recommended to NOT post 30.07 signs since OC was readily apparent and providing verbal notification carried the same weight of law as a sign would. Management and legal councel agreed with that assessment. We will NOT be posting 30.07, but will be updating our 30.06 signs to maintain compliance.
Malls, and similar establishments that do have a security force could use the same approach.
