    Mississippi law

    I was looking for someone with a more clear view on the mississippi law than i am. From what i understand, the law states you can't carry in a mall, but what constitutes a mall? is it more that one store connected or is it more that one store in one large building with inside entrences?

    Hmm... never heard that one. You might try Packing.org and look under the "places off limits while carrying" section.
    I saw no mention of a mall there.
    Good luck.
