    Just got home from the Citidel Mall. To my surprise, and after carrying many, many times before in the mall, I was confronted by 3 city LEO's and one "mall cop". I was informed by these men in uniform that it is against mall policy to openly carry a firearm with in the mall.:what:

    They then showed me the sign at the entrance that tells of this policy.

    It is not the usual red circle around and crossing through a gun as you might expect.

    It is specified in rule 2 of a long list of written "rules of conduct" posted to the right as one enters, between the inner and outer doors.

    I must say though that the LEO's were all very courteous, and respectful and one of the even told me that "we still live is America" and by all means respects the right to bear arms. One of the other two LEO's told me that he would love having an armed citizen around if "things got bad". Over all it was not an unpleasant experience, just quite unexpected after having going to the mall so many times before OCing.

    Not only is OC against the rules at the mall, so is CC even with a valid permit as per a conversation with the mall's executive manager after conferring with the property owners in .... wait for it .... Chicago

    one of many, many reasons I haven't stepped foot in either mall for several years now

    yeah, but they can't actually keep you from CCing in there. They can ask you to leave if you reveal, somehow, but that's about it.

    I CC there all of the time--wouldn't go there if I didn't, as they do have a crime problem. All they can do is ask you to leave, but if you CC properly it's a non-issue.

    Not if you're doing it well.

    For me it's a simpler matter of choosing not to spend my disposable income somewhere so openly hostile to the legal bearing of arms by private citizens.

    I guess the only part about this entire scenario that gets me upset, is the fact that I have OC'ed there hundreds of times without any issues, then out of the blue they decide to enforce there stupid rules! At least the LEO's were considerate and supportive of my right to openly bear arms.
