I had a discussion with a gentleman that has been CC for most of his adult life. He told me that banks were off limits because they were federal buildings. I differed. I told him that banks were private and public institutions were insured by a federal entity therefore, unless otherwise posted, it was acceptable to CC.

Am I correct?

Oh yeah, I'm not going to hand the teller a note or anything!! :?

Thanks for the information...This board is absolutely filled with useful information...I've enjoyed reading many of the posts...I've learned more from this section than I did asking Law Enforcement Officials...I read several posts that indicated that LEOs were not really that versed on gun laws but didn't want to believe it...I have two words for them when it comes to Georgia Gun Laws...Clue Less... :cheers:

Tony,
Even if they do have a sign stating no fire arms allowed that sign has no legal weight in Ga, all they could do is ask you to leave and you would have to. Again thats why they call it concealed carry.

This financial institution is off-limits too:

http://www.gsufcu.org/
Is it off-limits because it's affiliated with the University? Other than that, it looks like a private firm (credit union).
16-11-127.1
(1) "School safety zone" means in, on, or within 1,000 feet of any real property owned by or leased to any public or private elementary school, secondary school, or school board and used for elementary or secondary education and in, on, or within 1,000 feet of the campus of any public or private technical school, vocational school, college, university, or institution of postsecondary education.
Looks like this credit union would be off-limits even if it was a stand-alone building off campus because of the "School Zone Law."

It is also gov't owned and or operated so it may or may not be a public gathering too.

tonyvanman, welcome to the site!

Did you know Cloumbus has a city ordinance that purports to ban the carry of firearms?

I'd just bank somewhere else.

:lol:

BTW, it sucked having to go to campus weaponless earlier. Although the other day I had my holster. Made me feel a little bit better.

What? You were going to throw it at someone?
That was my first thought as well.

It's just easier to leave the holster where it is since it's IWB with belt loop snaps. Now when I get that OWB holster... 8)

Probably not a good idea, unfortunately.
