IN Mississippi IF i got caught carrying at a strip mall or something like that with a NO Firearms Allowed sign and they called the PoPo on me. Is that an Arrestable offense or would i be asked to leave or have to pay some fine or something. Who knows?


Im not talking about a place specified off limits by state or federal law, just places that decide they want to put up a sign.

According to the law the sign, which must be readable from a distance of no less than 10', must say, "carrying of a pistol or revolver is prohibited".

I'm still hunting for the penalty.

Mind over matter.

If they called the po po's you could still leave, unless they have blue lights on their car and/or a badge that makes some sense, they won't be detaining me.

If the placard says no guns, it's not up to the law's requirements and they can further KYA. (y=your), but don't feel the need to tell them why. :)

may not be of much use to you, but the guy who taught our concealed carry class told us that you could be charged with criminal tresspass assuming you had a valid permit ...
