    (Engage sarcasm mode)

    Couldn't possibly have really happened. Simon Properties doesn't allow guns in its malls. (Sarcasm mode off now)

    OC still a no-go in FL. If there were anyone in the area CCing, they must not have wanted to get involved.

    I have already been asked not to return to one mall, and from my talking with other OC'ers there are not many that support OC.

    Ontario Mills here in Ontario Ca is about 1 hour or so away, but they are ok with OC...so that is where we go.

    Better to support a mall that supports us anyway.

    Maybe we should consider getting in touch with the companies and winning hearts and minds so that our wives can spend money...

    Miami-Dade County was the first county in the US to have must issue CC permits wonder what went so wrong that there were no "Sheep Dogs" in the AO that coulda helped.
    ‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ Thomas Jefferson

    Emailed to Gary Nelson who wrote the article:

    "Mr. Gary Nelson,

    You might want to cover the "No guns" policy at mall's such as those owned by Simon Property Group in future unfortunate situations such as this. It seems fairly obvious that the criminal's in this case ignored the policy (as they usually do). The only people prevented by such policies from lawful carry are law abiding citizens who can then no longer defend themselves.

    There was also a shooting 2 weeks ago (as you probably already know), at the Southcenter mall in Tukwila, Washington. Another mall that is adamant about it's "No guns" policy, and has "trespassed" multiple citizens for lawful carry in the past. It's obvious that these "policies" are at best ineffective, and at worst allowing crime to happen.

    Best regards,"
