    Can you carry into a bank in your state? Open/Concealed?

    In Texas, yes. Concealed only is allowed.
    Some have the proper 30.06 signage. Others have no signage whatsoever.

    I think you can in Pennsylvania. I see nothing that says you can't.

    MA. Yup--do it all the time.

    A bank or an ATM is a REALLY good place to practice your situational awareness. Remember what Willie Sutton (supposedly) said: he robbed banks because, as it turned out, that's where the money is!

    Who'd've thunk that if Willie had only used repackaged mortgages to rob banks instead of a gun, not only would he have been a free man--he'd've had a golden parachute AND a bail-out! :mad:

    Neither - not even with a permit :(

    (which is why I use the drive-up anymore ;) )

    That's one of the odd exceptions to our otherwise excellent lack of gun laws.

    I guess they figure you couldn't possibly need to defend yourself while carrying large sums of cash to or from a bank :rolleyes:

    In Washington State, yes, ccw or open. I open carry all the time inside my bank and at ATMs. They have never said a word about it to me.

    My bank was robbed 3 times in one years time. I always CC or go trough the drive-tru.

    Yes. In Utah is legal to open carry in them, but I've never done it. I have had more than one conversation with a manager who said they don't mind lawful actions at all in their bank.

    Open Only

    As I understand it, in NC you can NOT carry into a bank concealed, but you can open carry. Legally that is.

    Practically speaking, open carry into a bank may be OK legally, but in Charlotte would most certainly land you at a minimum an extended conversation with a LEO, probably at least being detained for awhile.

    CCW in Louisiana.

    Here in OH, if there's no "No Firearms" sign (signage rules are really fuzzy - it just has to be conspicuous), you're fine, Open or Concealed. (The latter requires a license.)

    Interestingly, you can't Open Carry in a car without a license. :confused:

    We're fighting an arrest in the Cleveland area right now where a guy was arrested (no license) for having his nominally Open Carried firearm partially concealed.... That three people called 911 with "man with a gun" doesn't seem to matter.... :cuss:

    Only 2 states appear to be a problem.
    NC concealed and Montana in any form other the the drive thru.
    Still worried about,Butch,Sundance and the James boys it seems.

    Open and concealed carry both are legal in Colorado.

    New Mexico is OK open carry or CCW in a bank (I wouldn't try OC in Santa Fe) - but don't you dare go to a restaurant that serves alcohol for on-site consumption, open carry OR CCW! We are still trying to correct that.
