Actually it does. If there is a sign and you are caught carrying concealed, that sign is pretty much considering a reasonable request that you refused to abide by (kindof like if you went into a store w/no sign, was printed, asked to leave, and you refused). Hence, you would at least lose your permit (I forget the actual penalty, I believe it's a misdemeanor).
Choose to ignore the laws, but don't assume that there are no repercussions! The store owner won't be able to hold you, but if he/she reports you to the police, your life will suck!
