Oh panic! Oh hysteria! Oh, Fox how could such an idiotic article have made it past your BS filters? Somebody, somewhere, sometime might carry a gun into a bank.
Which would be deadly!
And cause firefights to mow down innocents! (Never mind that we don’t have a single fact to back our “expert” assertions.)
Oh, the horror. Quick! Bring me my smelling salts!
Can You Carry a Concealed Weapon into a Bank?Customers who carry a concealed weapon into a bank could put others at greater risk of injury or death during a robbery, but only one U.S. state specifically prohibits carrying a concealed weapon inside a bank.
U.S. states have issued more than 11 million permits to carry a concealed weapon, according to a 2014 study by the Crime Prevention Research Center.
That’s probably a conservative estimate. Four states — Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming — and most of Montana don’t require a permit, according to the center. The number of state-issued permits has been on the rise since 2012. And some people might choose to carry a concealed weapon without a permit even where one is required.
Those trends, plus the lack of any centralized record keeping, make the true number of concealed gun carriers elusive, says Laura Cutilletta, senior staff attorney at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, a nonprofit legal research organization in San Francisco.
“It’s difficult when it’s concealed, which raises the issue that there may be a lot of people carrying guns in banks and we don’t realize it,” Cutilletta says.
Blah Blah Blah...read the rest if you want to but the pertinent information you need is this ...
Signs Discourage Gun-Toting on Bank Premises Banks can establish policies and post signs to prohibit open or concealed weapons inside their buildings as a matter of private property rights. However, that authority doesn’t stretch very far.
“Banks can have different policies with whether or not a concealed carry is something that they will allow or not. But if it is a concealed carry, you may not know that a customer has a gun,” Johnson says.
Moreover, neither a policy nor a sign carries much force of law....heh heh heh
