I went to a Mall here in Wichita called Towne West.
The parking lot was fairly crowded so I had to park way out in the N40.
I of course have my pistol on and start to make my trek up to the front door,and THERE IT IS,the NO-GUNS SIGN!
Now..I just wasted my time going there and parking and fighting the crowd and had to leave because there was NO way I was going to leave a pistol in the truck at a Mall,thats just asking for somebody to take!
What a PAIN!:mad:

You are probably better off anyway. My wife wanted me to go to the mall today. No thank you. Too crazy, too crowded.

Malls at this time of year mean only one thing to me: Crowds and getting sick! Never fails, I get in a crowd and I get a cold or worse..

I don't know the laws there, but I take great joy in ignoring those signs here... no weight of law and all. :tongue:

Question I have is what if one does not see a posted sign and is caught inside with a weapon. I find myself not paying attention to things like that as much as I should.

I find it amusing that the one store that HAD a sign put it on the automatic opening door..so you couldn't read it if you actually wanted to!

What's the law there?

In Nevada, the establishment/business can ask you to leave and you must or will be trespassing but that's all.

I know this might surprise some, but I actually feel that a mall area is one place where CCP/W would be a loved thing considering the last mall shooting and all and the ease that some looney toon could do the same thing all over again.

What you and I both feel and know...the mall owners don't understand, nor care about.
They probably (obviously) feel that those with the CCW's and pistols...are 'threats'.
They just don't get it.:hand1::banned:

Shooting in a mall, with all those people, all those glass only barriers to innocent people in the mall stores...shooting there unless you are one heck of a good marksman and even then, your round will be going on its merry way because of your tunnel vision and the adrenaline rush.
As they say 'not I' unless it comes down to protecting those very close to me and the perp is close enough that I can get a from the floor pointing up at him/her to minimize the possibility of someone getting hit from a through and through of mine...

I think most mall owners are largely uneducated or unaware of licensed conceal carry. Most of them probably have the signs posted for the sake of gangs and criminals (who largely laugh at them), and don't think much about CC. Of course, some of them know all too well and don't care.

In Washington State private property owners can post signs and prohibit carry, but the penalty is the same- if caught they can ask me to leave, and if I refuse I get trespassed. I don't much like malls anyways, so not much of a loss for me.

I completely agree with you there. Some people never learn though. :twak:

Westroads mall here in Omaha, NE is still off limits to ccw (Not quite as conspicious as before, but still legally binding per Nebraska ccw law) even after the tragic Van Mour shooting that happened there. If that didn't give them a clue I don't think anything ever will.

:hand10: No weight in Ga either. I ignore all the (kill free zone) signs except for the ones listed as no carry zones by the state.

I don't like getting malled, and avoid those places like the plague. When I have to shop(YUCK) I choose stand alone stores, less crowds, faster in and out, and a quicker trip to the shooting range where I'd rather be:yup:
Now ask me if I want to go to a Gun Shop, and watch my answer change:image035:

I couldn't even tell you if any of the local malls have any of those silly signs, it's been so long since I've been to one.

Screw those signs! I carry to protect me and members of my family. Have you seen those mall security guards? :gah: My God, they're kids who don't even shave. Yeah, you're protected from some crazy.

Have you seen the brand new LEO's? My god, 21 and full of themselves already. They look and act like children in a candy store with their new bright and shiny shields. First thing the old veterans did when they had to get a new shield was have it buffed until it lost its shine!
