    Try this Q in the Alabama Section, might get better responses than a bunch of people telling you what it is in their state.

    Our locale Mall has signs posted upon entry that states "NO weapons of any kind are allowed".

    But then they allow stores inside the mallto sell knives, throwing stars, swordsand Nunchucks.

    I would rather be asked to leave and be safe than need my weapon and not have it. So I concealed carry in the mall.

    You should try post state specific questions in their respective forums. You will get faster, and better answers that way.

    In Alabama there are no restrictions on carrying a firearm in a mall. There is no signage law in Alabama so even if they have a 'no guns' sign it means nothing.

    Remember though, if a representative of the mall property owner asks you to leave, you need to leave or you could be charged with tresspassing. So no "zomg it's mah riaght to carrah a gun in 'ere!" stuff.

    Additionaly, the legality of OC is not known by all cops in Alabama. It's pretty rare, but not unheard of for someone to be arrested for OCing. Just don't talk the police, hire an attorney, and sue their pants off.
