    In layman's terms does that mean the sign prohibiting firearms on the front door of say the local bank does not mean much?

    I think based on this paragraph...they interpret this as signs do NOT carry legal weight...

    I was unable to read such signs twice this morning - my wife's dr's office and waffle house. openly carried in both in front of all the various employees. Not a person bothered to ask me or my gun to leave. The Dr's office was the best - it didn't say guns were prohibited or "no weapons allowed" just claimed that Ga Law prohibited guns or blades in medical facilities. LOL.
    I thought about posting a sign saying it the speed limit on the I-16 was 150mph and see if that would make it true. ;)

    Criminal trespass requires specific and individualized notice. A general sign does not constitute such notice.

    Now, if you read such a sign, acknowledged it, went in anyone, and then admitted such, a case might could be made at that point.
