    I simply do not shop at places like that. In this economy I hope they can afford it.

    Yet another reason i do most of my shopping from home. Not only are the prices on Amazon lower, but you bypass taxes and can usually wrangle free shipping on most items. Granted, i only CC so have never had an issue at any of the local Best Buys, but i can only imagine trying ti OC in the Ann Arbor location.

    A couple of years ago there was a thread on Best Buy in SC and the security guard who attempted to disarm and detain a legal CWP individual.

    My guess is that while corporate may "go along with state rules", they are very anti and will try to enforce no carry whenever possible.

    As an aside the thread did open a lot of eyes on the powers that security guards have and how they vary so much from state to state.

    Well, I went back in today & no one said a word to me.BUT, just so happened that the FPD officer had stepped out for a few minutes.

    Now correct me if I'm wrong guys, But I've always thought that the owner/manager of the property was the only one that could enforce a "No Weapons" policy.??

    In otherwords, if I was in BEST BUY, and passed a anti-OC LEO but NO ONE had complained about MWAG, then that officer has no grounds to engage me about OC. Right??

    I would suspect that he could "advise" after "consensual contact"; but if the "representative" of the owner had an issue with it then he'd have grounds to relay that message, hence how mall ninjas can ask you to leave, and you need not go to the mall owner to get the boot.

    This only works if there is a corporate no weapons policy. If you complain to corporate, and there is no policy, someone will be getting jerked back into line with what the policy is. I went through this at Walmart. I have since OC'd right past the Asst Mgr that told me he would not allow me in the store if he had seen my firearm. He will not even speak or acknowledge me, which tells me he was likely put in his place on corporate policy that he was dead wrong about when he confronted me.

    And if the LEO is anti OC, he may very well kick you out under color of law. Basically, intervening in a situation where there was no complaint because he feels like he can. BTW, if OC is legal and there is no store policy against it, then the MWAG call should be a non issue. We know that is not always the case, but it should be. And he can engage you for any reason really. If you feel it's inappropriate you can ask if you are being detained for anything. If he says no then ask if you are free to go. If you are free to go you can just walk away. LEO's can speak to you for any reason they wish, but you do not always have to participate in the conversation. Don't be a jerk about it, but understand that if you are not being detained then the interaction is purely informal and can be ended at any point by you walking away.

    IMO any place that don't want you to be able to protect yourself and your family doesn't need any of my business or anyone else who carries, and they need to know why they are losing business.

    In most states the businesses have to be posted like it is here in Nebraska.Or if they dont,they have to haveit in black and white to show you. If they do not,stop goingthere and or,file a lawsuit to prove the no gun policy. richgp100z

    went to the BB in Hickory, NC today. No sign posted. I was CC'ing, so no one knew. I can only imagine if I'm OC, as I'm 25 and look younger--but the bright side of that, I probably would have been helped quicker (took em 15 minutes to realize I was wanting some advice!)

    Don't come to NC then; our current "tax everyone and everything" government is trying to get Amazon to turn over who in NC has used their site so they may collect taxes from it.

    BB sucks. If they make you wait, just find a manager or asst. manager and tell them you can buy that product at many other stores, but like BB's extended warranty.

    They love to upsell those warranties.

    I've never had an issue when I have OC'd at that store. Or HH Gregg across the street. Actually talked guns with an associate at HH Gregg while OC'ing. It's been a non issue around here, been OC'ing when possible for a little over a year.
