I need a well informed answer to this one. I entered a Cosco store the other day here in Tucson, Az. and was told I couldn't bring my side arm in with me. Of course I complied with their request not wanting to make a big deal of it especially while standing there with it on my side. But I have read the Arizona laws pertaining to OC in our state, andaccording to our state law if an establishment doesn't allow you to carry in their store they must provide a safe storage location for your weapon while you shop and then allow you to reclaim your weapon upon leaving in a quick and no hassle manner. Even our PD and courts will store your weapon for you because of the statue that requires them to do so.
My question,is Cosco violating my rights as described in our state statue regarding#2 in the constitution. Their answer to that question I posed to the manager is he said because they are a privately owned company they are exempt from that law. I don't believe they are correct and would like some accurate advice about this issue please.
Disarmed in Arizona by Cosco!
Do you happen to have a cite for the law you refered to above that requires stores to provide storage? Just curious.
