    Can someone point me here?

    Does anyone know of the specific laws concerning OC in banks?
    Crazy cant be stopped with gun registration or control. These guys will continue until Americans admit we have a real mental health and crime issue in this country. Go after the gangs full force and keep the crazies off the streets, and leave me and my gun alone.

    I was told by the manager of my bank that since they were "Federally Insured", they were under federal laws and handguns were prohibited by Federal law. I asked her to show me that law. That was US Bank, btw, and I am going to contact home office on Monday. May be time to switch banks I think.

    This same argument comes around from time to time by ignorant (or calculating) individuals.

    Yea, as TBG said, it's common to happen once in a while. I'd just contact their offices and request the officials to release a memo or something detailing their corporate policies. A lot of people imho react when they see a gun, and I believe it's because either the company has a no firearms policy for employee's while on the job, or just not knowing of the laws. Good luck on finding out. I find it funny how they say the banks are hurting so badly, yet their people keep kicking out legal and paying customers. Bad business practice to me, but who am I to judge a corporations business practices (places that are anti-2A, not misguided people).

    Either she is an idiot, or attempting to pull the wool over your eyes.

    "Federally Insured" does not turn a non-government corporation into a federal entity.


    Basically, everyone is 'under federal law,' and there is no federal law prohibiting handguns in banks.

    They are not a federal facility where federal employees are conducting their business. The word "federal" does not remove guns. National Parks are federally administered, too, but possession outside of the federal "facilities" (buildings, for the most part) is governed by state laws.

    If what they said were true, their security guard would not be allowed to carry a gun neither.

    This was in Winnemucca. They have no armed security of any kind. Just cameras. I do plan on contacting corporate first thing Monday, but with e-mail and follow up call within an hour.

    Went in Raley's to pay a bill. Walked right up to courtesy counter in the middle of a bout 10 customers. Rep came to counter, waited on me and nothing was ever said about the gun. Also to Tip's Western wear. I asked about if they could make a better holster for the gun, which was in plain view. Told her the gun was unloaded because I had expected the leather guy to want to see it. The woman behind the counter just smiled and said "Oh I am not worried about that, at all".

    Go back on Monday, and inform her that if being Federally insured makes the bank a Federal facility, then paying income taxes makes you a Federal employee, thus permitted to carry firearms.

    Walked into WellsFargo in Fallon yesterday like I always do (OCing) and some lady saw me and turns to her husband and says, "He's got a gun," He looke but nothing else said. Hammer back on safe and I made sure she saw the condition of my weapon.

    I even had some long talks w/the branch MGF there and he doesn't care.

    I went into a Reno Wells Fargo yesterday. It was a slow period, and there were half a dozen employees chatting. They all looked at me when I came through the door, glanced down at the 10mm, and they just kept talking without missing a syllable.

    I OC in the Bank of America on Vegas Blvd quite frequently actually, never once had an issue and I've done it many times when it has been packed with people. Security just glanced at me and went on with his business and the teller looked at me wide eyed for a minute and then acted like there was nothing different about me haha.
