If nothing else, this kind of "what if" real scenario is, IMO, one of those call 911 and do not get involved with your CCW cases. Guns, people yelling and screaming and pushing etc etc---- unless it is you and your family (and fortunately you were not in the middle of the melee), it is for the LEOs and mall security to handle.
Our mall isn't too bad yet, but I can definitely see more "gangstas" there than I used to. When I was a teen the mall was the place to be, so I guess that hasn't changed. But the mall in the 80's was filled with kids playing video games and buying Izod shirts. Not really a lot of gang activity there. And we could keep our pants up above our underwear. Now you got kids in there that would jump you for having the disrespect of making eye contact with them.
I am thinking the OP is talking about First Colony Mall in Sugar Land. I am not sure what happened, but the news did a story on it roughly around Chirstmas time.
some malls here in Houston are pretty bad. they only attract "gangstas" and the such. i know not to go to Sharpstown, greenspoint, or Pasadena malls
I don't go often, but you can be sure that if I have to....my XD45 goes with me!!!

And I thought this only happens in the mall in Roclkland County, NY.
We stopped going to it after 6:00 PM. I think we all can thank the Crips, Bloods and the Latin Kings for this.

And to think, I spent all those years in SE Asia to deal with this garbage.

I think you can pretty much judge a Mall by driving through the parking lot.
Look over the shoppers. Look over the loiterers. Look over the cars.
The mall in Providence, RI has a third floor with a food court and all the stores that sell to teenagers. Not surprising there are always fights there and the wannabe's like to screw around with the paying customers. I am seldom in there and never after 6:00 PM

In katy mills mall the security people are nothing more than baby sitters for the parents who drop their kids off at night and on weekends. If you so much as touch one of the little ******** you can and will be sued. And as an additional bonus if anything happens to the mall squad cars (even though the mall has insurance) the damage will come out of your $9.00 dollar an hour pocket.
I don't go there except on rare occasions, but I have heard that the youngsters are running like gangs inside the local mall and harassing other shoppers.
Yoda, I am, yes.
