    Entered the mall entrance by COSTCO and notice sign was changed to:



    " No weapons except as allowed by federal and state laws......"



    Checked the entrance near Wendy's and that sign said the same thing....



    Looks like a policy shift, at least as far as posting goes....

    Sounds to me like a sign with absolutely zero meaning.

    "We have a policy against you breaking the law."

    I'm not sure why they bother putting up a sign, unless it's to discourage folks who can't understand English very well, or those who won't bother to think too deeply about what the sign actually means. I'm just hoping that their managers don't fit into either category.

    So this is a change?

    What was the old policy... no weapons at all?

    Now, as long as you're legal, you're fine!

    This should be good. In theory, the manager no longer has the latitude to make up store policy on the fly.

    Posted: Thu Jan 22nd, 2009 09:41 am Edit Quote Reply I just got off the phone after talking to Mark Gentry, the Property Manager for Spotsylvania Towne Centre at Phone: 540-786-6660. I asked them if there was a change in policy regarding firearms in the mall, his reply was there is no change but the policy is if they see you openly carrying a firearm they ask you to leave but that they do not look for or ask you to leave if you conceal carry your firearm. I thanked him for the information and stated that since I can now carry, at least concealled, I would start shopping in the mall again.

    Willingness to support at least CC is better than nothing. Baby steps for the win.

    I OC'd there in March of this yr with no issues, according to another memberthe old policywas in place.



    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.
