    Welcome Sign at Local Bank

    I had to stop today at a local bank, First Bank and Trust of Murphysboro about adding another person to a checking account that my church has there.

    I'm walking up to the door and checking for a CPZ sign because I haven't been there yet this year before today. I see a gun pictured with a circle around it. I think "Oh no I've got to go back to the truck because I'm carrying. I get closer and read the sign, it says Security Notice Lawfully Concealed Weapons Are Allowed on This Property. The gun pictured has a green circle around it. This was nice to see as another bank a few blocks away was robbed earlier this year. That one didn't have a CPZ sign and still doesn't BTW.

    Southern Illinois folks looking for a concealed carry friendly bank might consider them. They have been arount since 1889 and they are a local bank. They do have a Carbondale location as well.

    Yeah we are over 300 miles from Chicago and it shows. I know of no banks around here that have CPZ signs.

    There is another bank in the next county over from me in Marion, Illinois that has an interesting sign. It is South Pointe Bank and the sign on the second set of doors says PROTECTED BY SMITH & WESSON. The bank president commented in an interview with a local tv station,WSIL TV, that they always have had employees who carried, but they just decided to "advertize" it.
