Back home in Texas we have a real clear and simple way to prohibit CCW on private property. A specific sign has to be posted in a specific way in a specific place. It's real hard to miss one (not that I see that many anyway). So, while poking around packing.org, I looked for something similar in the Oklahoma statutes... but I didn't find anything. I got the rules about schools, courthouses, bars, and the like, and that's easy enough to follow, but I don't understand how it works on private property that does not fall under another specific prohibition.

Enlighten me.

Az, look at Oklahoma's Criminal Trespassing statute, in particular the notice section and see if that doesn't help.

I can't remember how it's worded, there is specific language about a sign at the entrance to a business. Might check the State Bureau of Investigation site, they've got the whole rules packet in pdf format at :

There is no standard for an anti sign. The ghostbuster sign with a picture of a gun and red line through it is good enough. However, if caught all they can do is ask for you to leave. If you don't then it is a tresspassing charge. So I ignore them, concealed means concealed, and if asked to leave I will and then explain I will not be back and why.

If you've got the OSBI publication you get with a CCW it's in there. Something about the Self Defense Act in no way changing the rights of employers, businesses or private property owners.

My understanding is that they can post away. If you get made and they ask you to leave and you don't at that point you are in violation of the law. One violation is tresspass. The other (the one that'll get you in the most trouble) is that you were made. If it isn't concealed (and it wasn't if you got made) then you are in violation of the concealed parts of the SDA - for which you can lose your permit for 3 to 6 months, get fined, etc, etc. Printing in OK is to the best of my understanding a no-no...
