In DC where it is more Black, company policy prohibits firearms, and in MD, where it is less Black they don't.In my neighborhood (DC), I have only encountered 2 "No guns Including CC Permit Holders" signs. one was lidl's near Hechingers Mall (I don't shop Lidl's), and Auto Zone on Minnesota Ave. I asked the store security guard if the entry portal was active, he said yes. I told the manager I have to make all of my purchases in Landover, where there are no signs. He said sorry It's a corporate requirement.... But there are no such signs in Landover, Bowie, Lanham or Greenbelt (In Mayland, I would have ignored them if there were).
Similar setup at Hopkins downtown. Metal detectors in ER but I didn't notice any other screening methods. Was there for 3 weeks after Thanksgiving in the PICU and walked in and out on another floor from the main garage entrance almost daily.Interesting, I wonder if they're running some kind of passive screening.
They've done that for at least a few years. It's one of the only places I didn't even try to carry a knife.If any one likes to go to Dollywood I can confirm that they have metal detectors for everyone entering and they will pull people to do a more thorough check with a wand if they think they see something suspicious. My father-in-law got singled out twice because his glasses case kept setting it off.

Edit: now that I'm replaying those entrances in my mind, they potentially had a passive system in place.
Doing the lords work. I just remember seeing some poles & strips at the Orleans garage entrance that give me pause now that someone mentioned passive.They don't have a passive system.
I don't think we should give them ideas, but I've been in and out many times, even today, with pokey and shooty things that would give them the vapors if they knew, bless their hearts.
Worcester County has a grandfathered no carry in nightclubs ordinance, it's not Fager's choice, so this is NOT a private property issue.Mrsb and I had dinner at Fager’s Island tonight and there were metal detectors outside next to the hostess station. The young lady told me they are for the “nightclub”. Looking at the website, they have dj/bands at 930 and I guess they screen then. Not going to affect us but putting it out there for them it might.
