Columbia Mall - gone to the dogs

https://posts.gle/HkBHx

Saw this recently and sent an email to the mall asking if people with permits are allowed to carry while at the mall. Here is the reply I got.

Thank you for contacting us ahead of time in regards to your question!

Regardless of what state the permit is from, NO weapons are allowed at the Columbia Mall premises.

We sincerely appreciate you being a responsible gun owner and that you checked with us before your trip the our mall!

Have a wonderful day!

I then replied that I, as a responsible gun owner, am not the one the mall needs to be concerned about.

Never liked that place anyway.

Can't remember the last time I stepped into a mall. Everything I want is available online, Costco, or Lowes.

I think most of the malls are in a race............to the bottom. I haven't been to White Marsh Mall in 15 years, nor any other mall

I occasionally go to Bass Pro but I DO NOT step into the mall.

I have found in general that in the last 8 years or so, if I go to a brick and mortar store for a particular item....they don't have it. I'm even talking the littlest shit, like dental floss.

I shop 99% on line and I get EXACTLY what I want.

I am old enough to remember when that mall was built. Went there with the family in it's first year and haven't felt the need to return since.

I was in the mall Sunday with my wife and son , carrying a hunk of iron in the .45 caliber variety . Don't ask don't tell , i don't give two "F's" what they say or what they write down .


I go to the malls because my son loves to walk around the malls and we pick up lunch or dinner . I do it for my son .

I dislike entering Malls immensely, if attached I use, Bass Pro, Costco (a little), periodically Dicks, Home Depot, REI, anything else I try to buy from small independently owned businesses, however more and more its online.

I recall seeing the no weapons sign on the mall doors one Saturday morning in January of 2014, when I got stuck alone in the mall concourse after people ran past me screaming that there was a guy around the corner with a shotgun. I've never hated Maryland's "may issue" more than I did at that moment.

Not to say I don't go in, when the Commander and Chief puts her foot down. I'm not stupid...

If you have a CCW permit here in MD, does the law require you to obey signs posted by businesses?

I always figured I would just do the same and just keep it concealed or have been looking at my phone and not seen the signs with 'too little' print size or whatever.
