Does anyone invest with a local Edward Jones branch? I don’t typically frequent my broker’s office, but happened to stop in for some paperwork. I noticed he had posted the IL no firearms sign on his door. So went to another EJ office here in town and there also was posted.

I reviewed the list of forbidden zones and cannot come up with anything that would indicate that this type of office is “required” to post.

Does anyone else invest with these guys and does anyone know if it is their choice to be posting or is it required, something I’m possibly missing in the list?

 

 

It's corporate policy that ALL Edward Jones offices get posted.  I will not do business with them.

It's quite funny. I helped out at my Daughters schools 'Fathers Forum' last year. They had their meetings at an unposted location, so I carried every time. The guy leading it manages an Edward Jones location. He was so anti that even if it wasn't corporate policy, I'm certain he would have posted it himself! If only he knew what was in my pocket the whole time.....

Several Edward Jones locations in Illinois appear on the Posted! site.  You can search for specific locations.

I had occasion to be in this building today.  It's a health-plex that houses various medical practices.  There is a convenient-care clinic on site.  On the surface it appears to be owned by the Genesis health group (which operates hospitals in Iowa).  Yet, it is not posted.  I fully expected to see the compliant sign and was going to photograph it for the Posted app.

 

So, are they unposted in violation of Illinois statute, or are they not a "hospital affiliate" despite sharing the name and logo of a hospital.

None of their Illinois facilities are compliant, even the Genesis Silvis Hospital campus, formerly known as Illini Hospital. They have been made aware of the law, and their posting requirements. They just don't seem to care.

yea everyone makes fun of the redneck till the zombies show up. . .

Which is strange because their Iowa campuses do have "no guns" signs on them (obviously not the Illinois sign).  So we know it's not that they're friendly to CCW.

I've carried everyday in Chicago for almost two weeks now. I've been presently surprised that I've only had to disarm once and that was to enter my sons high school which was NOT posted (yet).

I've transported legally on CTA trains and buses. While technically disarming, it's still within reach if required.

All in all not too bad so far. Just my two cents.

How do you do this?  How is it possible to legally carry on public transportation?

you can't legally carry a concealed handgun as a civilian on public transportation under IL's CCL laws.  

 

"Concealed firearm" means a loaded or unloaded handgun carried on or about a person completely or mostly concealed from view of the public or on or about a person within a vehicle.

 

he has transported the firearm abiding to FOID regulations.   encased and unloaded.

Plus that's almost three years old now.
Wonder if he's still doing it?

I stopped using Uber and Lyft, deleted the apps off my phone due to their unfair No Firearm policy for riders.

Not really within the scope of the locations prohibited in law, though - just company policy.
