The 30.05 Sign
Are you aware of the 30.05 sign? (The notice appears on the right hand side of the photo in black lettering on a transparent background.) Information about 30.05 is found on Page 70 of the LTC-16 document. In particular, 30.05(c) on page 72 reads in part “A person may provide notice that firearms are prohibited on the property.” Those who believe they can permitless carry a handgun anywhere they please might not be aware that certain properties are able to exclude those without a handgun license by posting the 30.05 sign. Ignorance of the law has the potential to set the stage for disputes and conflict rooted in misunderstanding. For this reason, Family Armory recommends taking a LTC class.
