I know this may be a semi-useless post, but I thought it would be good nonetheless, since my last OC-at-a-mall experience was not the best. This time was much better.
I had a few items I wanted to return to Sears at the Orange Mall, off of Tustin & Meats. I walked in, took care of business (about 15 mins or so) and headed out. Surprisingly, no security or LEO visits. A floor manager and 2 cashiers were at the customer service counter. All were friendly and didn't give a second glance.
Funny thing is... I remember my dad talking about how he bought a rifle or two at Sears back in the day. Why don't they sell rifles anymore?
On a side note... I've also carried at the Panera Bread there multiple times without issue. It's where the GF's family meets up after church goings. Their breakfast sangwiches are awesome.
Gun control isn't about guns -- it is about control.
