remove the weapon, the operator or sponsor shall provide temporary and secure storage. The storage shall be readily
accessible on entry into the establishment or event and allow for the immediate retrieval of the weapon on exit from the
establishment or event." Some agencies and jurisdictions are choosing to not comply with the new laws there

It's a private property issue I think. I'm not a lawyer tho.

You read it right. People have been pushing for it to actually have a non-compliance due or fine but the problem of implementation of such systems have a lot of business owners up in arms over it.

First, it is important to understand exactly what 'public establishment and sponsor of pubic event' means in a legal sense.

So, if an operator asks you to remove the weapon, he shall (read: must) provide storage in accordance with this statute.
If an operator of a public establishment or a sponsor of a public event requests that a person carrying a deadly weapon remove the weapon, the operator or sponsor shall provide temporary and secure storage. The storage shall be readily accessible on entry into the establishment or event and allow for the immediate retrieval of the weapon on exit from the establishment or event.
He can ask you to remove the weapon but you are required to comply only if he supplies the appropriate storage. If he does not have the statute mandated storage facility you are free to carry.
Of course, being in the right does not protect you from harrassment and arrest. It only means the law is on your side.

I wasn't aware that there were no penalties for non-compliance, but I do know that the Governor sent all of the State agencies a memo ordering them to either allow state employees and the public (by agency policy) to carry concealed within the building or to provide secure storage. The agency that I worked for chose to provide secure storage lockers, as most others did. Our Deputy Director absolutely had her panties in a bunch that the agency was going to have to allow people to carry a weapon onto the property.
