LE encounter and wrongfully being asked to disarm
I use to work as security for a mall by where I live a long time ago and have come to know many officers that have responded to our calls. One of them however has a "cops should be the only one with guns" mentality. He knows I have mine and carry 99% of the time. I was going to a movie this one night that he happen to be moonlighting as their security. As I was entering the lobby he approached me and asked if I was carrying, being up front about it I said I am carrying and handed over my card. He then asked me to disarm and leave it in the car. I know for a fact that the theater doesn't ban carry, nor does the mall it is attached to. And the most obvious part it isn't posted on the entry way that carry is banned. I remarked back to him even tho it isn't banned and isn't posted I will respect his request and leave it in my car. I feel that he took advantage of my respect for LEO's that I wouldn't refuse to disarm. Any thought on how this went and what would have been a better choice or if I made the right choice.
