    Signs in KY

    Do I understand KY statue 237.110 correctly that a permit holder simply carrying a holstered handgun past signage at a public business is not a crime? Is it true that it is only a matter of trespass if they ask you to leave?

    Yes, I know that it's better to not go there at all. But I would like to know the answer to the question. What if you accidentally walked past signage while OCing, for instance?

    Signs have no weight of law in Kentucky. If you there is a sign and you walk in you have to be asked to leave. I wouldn't make a habit of it because many places opt to call the Police instead of approaching the scary man/woman with a gun. Once you are trespassed you cannot return with or without a gun. If you have a permit, you could conceal and no one would know to ask you to leave, then just tuck your shirt back in when you leave.

    Signs in KY

    Just to add my 2 worthless cents, the term "public place" is often misunderstood. McDonalds is a public place, but is privately owned. City hall is also a public place but is publicly owned.
