Congratulations on your first OC experience. Definitely takes nerve.
One thing, you said...
It's actually quite legal. Any business has the right to say you can't carry in their place. However, the cops can't arrest you for a firearms charge, it'll be trespassing if you argue or refuse to leave. Confrontation is NOT a good idea in that situation.I then informed her and the manager that the ‘No Concealed Deadly Weapons Allowed’ sign outside was not a legal sign
"No sir, I didn't see the sign.Sorry about that I'll leave now".
There's a similar version on one of the theater doors near me. They went a step further and tried to quote a statute dealing with permit revocation after non-renewal. I called the manager, but he said it's corporate policy and had no other information.
Not that the USAF has anything to do with your carrying, but interesting it helped 'legitimize' the practice.I responded with yes and that I am in the Air Force
BTW what job do you do in the AF?
