    I figured I would compile a list of stores, restaurants, what have you that are not firearm friendly.

    I will update the list periodically, and will put it into a spread sheet alphabetically by locale.

    If you know of any shops that do not allow firearms, post em!

    Maybe we can change their minds

    Value City Furniture is the only place in Indiana I've seen with a sign so far. I think it's corporate-wide, but I've only ever been to the one in Castleton.

    You might also use MCGRO's list as a baseline.

    I'm guessing firearms there must have been a huge problem at one time. I mean, just look at the body count.




    C'mon, that was funny. You know you laughed.

    Most of the major movie theaters in South Bend have a no guns allowed sign. Most people just ignore it.

    The Costco VDZ seems to be widespread. I've seen that in the state of Washington as well as Indiana. May be a corporate policy.

    I won't say what I did or didn't do. -Just that there were noooo problems.

    I would suspicion that it gets routinely ignored by folks CC'ing.

    To bad the only folks that might consider paying attention to those signs are law abiding citizens.

    And we know 'bangers and thieves don't care about such trivial inconveniences other than to THANK the proprietors for making their 'job' easier.

    The only place I have seen a sign so far is the IRS sub office in Greenwood. The signs went up after a nutjob with a tax problem went in and shot an IRS leach. See paragraphs above.

    Silly people.

    I am usually carrying where ever I go, and I was very surprised when I stopped at 'Priscillas' in Merrillville. Signs at the entrance of the store say "no weapons allowed on premises." For those of you who don't know... Priscilla's is basically a porn store.. lol. But still.... what's the big deal, why don't they want us to carry our guns in there??

    I've been here a number of times ~3-4, I never noticed the sign, is it recent? Last time I was there was a few months back, OC'ed as usual, did not see any signage...

    They probably have the same misinterpreted notion that all the other gun free zones do, crime will run rampant if people can bring their guns in, when we know it is just the opposite. That area of Merrillville borders Gary somewhat, especially at night the surrounding areas do have quite a bit of crime, vandalism and that sort of thing. Also, the business is in that little alley way kind of far from the main strip of malls adjacent to it, if I had to guess, thats what I think their reasoning is.

    There's a Priscillas adult store in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina and it definitely has a "NO WEAPONS" sign on the front door. I wonder if the stores are in some way related (on a corporate level, not a product level ) and it's a company-wide policy? It make sense that alcohol and firearms do not mix, but adult stores and firearms not mixing?

    I don't know if it's just Simon Management Group or just Greenwood Park Mall. On their little rules sign it statesNO firearms, openly carried or concealed, with or with out a permit.

    I think it's Simon. Castleton Square Mall (also a Simon mall) recently changed their posted policy and added the same clause to their sign.

    Simon bans weapons chainwide. The only places I have seen is 5/3 bank in Nashville has a no gun symbol on their door. I asked a teller and she said it is corporate policy but I have never seen any other 5/3 locations with signs. Also Columbus Regional Hospital has "no weapons" signs posted.

    Our local mall doesn't have a no gun sign, but it is a SIMON mall... Was thinking about going there tomorrow, but didn't want to cause trouble.

    Anyone else carry at a SIMON mall without issues?

    I have noticed a couple "No Guns" signs come down. Lowe's in Franklin and Value City Department Store in Greenwood removed there signs some time ago. I have a question tho, I know in Indiana no gun signs don't carry much weight but what happens if you carry into a venue that has a pat down or metal detector and your made? I assume they would just deny you entrance and or make a real fuss. Is there a legal problem with getting busted carrying into a Colts game with proper carry permit or similar location?

    I have noticed these "no guns allowed" signs showing up around area stores as well. Go check most movie theatres you will find them on the doors there too. I know I have seen them at Regal and United Artist theatres. I also saw them at a store called Tuesday Mornings as well as the already stated Value City.

    I was concerned and emailed the State Police division of Firearms and asked them about it. Indiana does not have a law that makes it illegal to carry in places with a no carry sign (except where already prohibited by law), but they do give the right to establishments to say that they prefer that you do not carry there.

    So I responded by asking what could come of it if I did carry and was noticed by an employee.

    The response was since there is no law prohibiting me from doing so in a place where it is posted (Ohio has a such law allowing places to prohibit guns) the establishment can ask me to leave. If I refuse to leave I can be charged with trespassing.

    I enjoy complimenting the store as I leave and telling them that I like the sign in the door that reads please rob me since I do not allow honest people to carry in here and I have no protection against you robbing me!

    This is already probaly known, but the fair grounds in Lake County has a huge sign saying no weapons or firearms as I recall.

    Mounds Mall in Anderson - also both hospitals - Community and St Johns.
    I ignore all of them unless I'm having a test or something at a hospital and I'll need to take off my pants.

    The courthouse has a metal detector and 2 cops - I couldn't even carry in my small pocket knife - I had to take it back to my car.

    My son in law was at the mall some time back and somebody saw his pistol. They grilled him about it, he showed his permit and that was the end of it. I think that was before they put up the sign - it has lots of rules, no weapons is number 2.
