Wear and Carry: Banks??

I can't find anything that says we can't carry into a bank assuming we have an unrestricted permit, as long as the establishment doesn't have something on their door.

Is there a law in Maryland that says I can't?

No crime (or potential crime) has been committed by my part, it's more of a "new carrier" question.

I expect troll posts to some extent, but for the safety of all.. please properly mark the troll posts so no one gets the wrong idea for too long.

No, banks are fine.

"No guns here" signs do not have the force of law in Maryland. However, if there is a sign posted and you are caught on the property with a gun, you can be asked to leave and then charged with trespassing if you don't.

Due to the propensity of favoring so- called " Business Permits " , bank lobbies are probably the most heavily armed areas of the state .

That's what i thought, but wasn't sure because they could use the drive thru window. I dont know what it's like to drop off "that much money" at a drive thru window though HAHHAA.

Old line bank in Prince Frederick is posted no firearms. I ask them if it included Leo (I’m not). They said yes, they must use drive through. They also have the double door system. First door must be closed before the second can be opened. It has a metal detector.

Any bank with the two door system would be a problem for a concealed carry.

I wonder if the inner door is locked if metal is detected... and is bullet proof? How do they stop a plastic gunman from robbing them?.. i hear ghost guns are untraceable and undetectable...

[perfect time for a troll post/comment... it had to be done.]

If this described my bank's entryway I would do my banking somewhere else.

This exactly. It also applies to all other businesses. It would be up to the owner to post a sign. If no sign, then they cant do anything.

Exactly.


Navy Federal in Germantown has a No Gun Sign... Has been robbed many times.

Navy Federal in Frederick does not have a sign.
