In looking through my list of places where you can't carry, I don't see banks. Are they covered in "places prohibited by federal regulations"?

Hi Steve 48,

From what I understand banks are not owned by the government and therefore are not off limits. I specifically asked this question during out CC class and was told it was not off limits.

In Gutmacher's book on page 67, #10 he says: "Any other place a firearm is prohibited by federal law, including any federal office or building. This means, amongst other places - - a post office, IRS, social security. It does not mean a bank."

Hope this helps.

Thanks, folks. That's the way I read it, but it pays to be sure.

Important to remember that the bank itself may have a no guns policy and if its posted then they can ask you to leave. My credit union has a d*mn metal detector at the door. I've never had occasion to carry there but my guess is if it goes off they summon the local gendarmes.

I'd be willing to bet that everytime somebody walks through the door with coins to cash in, the buzzer goes off. Do you have to empty your pockets when you walk through the door. How about your belt buckle do you have to take the belt off to go in. Sounds like your credit union is in an airport. :D

The bank that I used to have an account with ( 6 months ago ) installed an electronic lobby. It's a plexiglas booth inside the lobby, with 2 doors that are controlled by a mininum wage unarmed security guard. Once you enter it you can not leave unless the guard lets you. On my last visit, before I closed my account, the guard would not allow me to enter because the metal detector "found" my steel toed boots. I made enough of a fuss that the manager told him to allow me to enter and then he had the "stones" to tell the manager that I had "some kind of a weapon" under my leather vest. Bottom line......NO WEAPON, NO THREAT.....AND THEY LOST A LONG TIME CUSTOMER.

My CU has all the tellers in a separate room. Even if you walk in, it is just like a drive through. The transaction is by CCTV and pneumatic tube.

I was thinking the same thing, I will just stay in my car before i disarm myself to go in the bank.
When will all these people learn that it's not the people that carry LEGALLY that they have to worry about, it is the ones that do it ILLEGALLY that cause 99.9% of the problems!!!

My credit union does not even have a counter. You walk in and stand right next to the teller at the same little kiosk, nothing at all between you and them. There are 3-4 little stands with a teller at them, sort of like the tables where you fill out you deposit slip and so forth. Pretty wierd!

Keep in mind if you go to a Federal Credit Union that it's owned by the Federal Government and you would be in violation then per FL law.

I'm not so sure about that.

I think that the only thing"federal" about a credit union is that the deposits are guaranteed by the federal govt.

Nope. Credit Unions by definition are owned by their members.

I am a member of Navy Federal and the government owns none of it.

CitiBank on the other hand .... :rolf
