    In Missouri, there are none, as far as PRIVATELY OWNED banks are concerned. Of course, there may be local ordinances restricting open carry in the jurisdiction in which the bank resides.

    An actual, bonafide federally owned bank, such as a Federal Reserve Branch, would come under federal laws that prohibit firearms in any federally-owned building.

    This is true. Watch the city/county you're in, but as far as banks are concerned, you're good to go under MO law.

    The Federal Reserve Banks aren't even banks in the sense we know them. Your average joe will never go into one because they do not offer accounts or services. They're simply there to facilitate monetary exchange with privately held banks.

    When I moved to Columbia and was bank shopping I asked specifically about firearms policy; Boone County State Bank said all legal persons were welcome to carry in their banks.

    They also own many banks outside Boone County, look for the dogwood blossom (4 pedals with several dots in the middle) which is the logo for any bank they own, don't know if they have one in Rolla.

    I use US Bank and since they are a national level bank I fear they may be a no gun place.

    They might have more cautious corporate lawyers making policies who are thinking about liability rather than rights of citizens.

    After searching for more information it appears US Bank has a corporate policy against exposed firearms unless you are LEO, armored transport employee, or hired security.

    I called my parents about closing my accounts and there are some reasons I have to maintain a US Bank account, though it doesn't mean I need to use it.

    In re Federal Reserve Bank status

    http://bulk.resource.org/courts.gov/...9.80-5905.html

    680 F.2d 1239

    John L. LEWIS, Plaintiff/Appellant,
    v.
    UNITED STATES of America, Defendant/Appellee.

    No. 80-5905.

    United States Court of Appeals,
    Ninth Circuit.

    Submitted March 2, 1982.
    Decided April 19, 1982.
    As Amended June 24, 1982.

    On July 27, 1979, appellant John Lewis was injured by a vehicle owned and operated by the Los Angeles branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Lewis brought this action in district court alleging jurisdiction under the Federal Tort Claims Act (the Act), 28 U.S.C. 1346(b). The United States moved to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The district court dismissed, holding that the Federal Reserve Bank is not a federal agency within the meaning of the Act and that the court therefore lacked subject matter jurisdiction. We affirm.
