Custom No Open Carry Signs for Colorado Facility

Stonehouse Signs often gets calls from customers asking if we have a specific compliance sign in stock. And while we don’t keep every state, county or municipal-compliant sign on-hand, our Custom Sign Service does give Stonehouse Signs the flexibility to make whatever sign you need, following the compliance standard, and get it to you quickly. This Custom Sign Service is particularly handy for Gun Control Signs, as laws can vary greatly between different municipalities.

Recently we produced some Gun Control / No Open Carry Signs for the City of Arvada. They have a municipal code for the city that reads, in part:

"It shall be unlawful for any person to open or openly carry any firearm in or upon any public building or specific area within the city."

Colorado state law allows for open carry in public places, unless specifically banned in municipal buildings such as police stations or city hall. The Colorado Revised Statute 29-11.7-104 (2017) states:

Stonehouse Signs Custom No Open Carry Signs"A local government may enact an ordinance, regulation, or other law that prohibits the open carrying of a firearm in a building or specific area within the local government's jurisdiction. If a local government enacts an ordinance, regulation, or other law that prohibits the open carrying of a firearm in a building or specific area, the local government shall post signs at the public entrances to the building or specific area informing persons that the open carrying of firearms is prohibited in the building or specific area."

So to enforce the municipal code, as well as comply with Colorado state law, The City of Arvada needed to post signs at their building entrances to inform facility users areas where open carry is prohibited. And they turned to Stonehouse Signs for the Custom Gun Control Signs they needed.

The No Open Carry Signs we produced are a 7”x10” sign in our PolySign material, a material valued for being both durable and lightweight – a perfect material for mounting to an exterior door. To stand out, the signs were made with white text on a black background, and read "Open carry of firearms is prohibited at this facility. Arvada Mun. Code § 62-71" The signs also included four corner holes for easy installation.
