Thread: Tanglewood Mall against Weapons

  1. Angry Tanglewood Mall against Weapons

    I recently talked to management at Tanglewood Mall in Roanoke Va. The told me that No weapons signs are not needed to tell anyone about their policy. Unarmed Security will be asking people about their Legally concealed Weapons and asking for permits. Then People will be escorted out or Arrested. Can they legally do this ?

    Uh... concealed is concealed, right? If they do determine you have a firearm, all they can do is ask you to leave the property. Failure to leave can result in a trespassing charge. As for the rent-a-cops asking to see a carry permit? Fat chance. And, I don't think I've ever seen any security at Tanglewood Mall.

    Sounds to me like mall management is just making stuff up. How did this discussion come about, if I may ask?

    Its private property so yes, but it should be posted and you don't have to show them anything, most likely if you refuse they'll feel inferior and call po-po anyway. I carry anyway. I'll be damned if I get caught in a deathtrap like that when someone decides to start shooting.

    Private security have no arrest powers they have to call local police to have you arrested.

    A follow up to my previous post:

    Here is the mall's "Code of Conduct" from their web site. No mention of firearms in addition to none of the entrances being posted. Again, it's their property, they make the rules - even if those rules aren't fully enumerated anywhere. Carry it concealed and don't worry about it.

    This mall is practically a ghost town anyway. There are more empty storefronts than occupied ones. If management wants to drive away lawfully carrying customers, that is their prerogative.

    If it is their "policy", then by law it has to be posted according to STATE regulations regarding wording and size for permit holders. The signs that say "the unlicensed possession of a weapon is prohibited" etc. do not apply to permit holders period. Otherwise all that they can do is ask you to leave the property. They can not ask for your permit if you agree to leave.

    Virginia has no signage regulations or standards.

    They can ask for whatever they want. You can tell them to take a flying leap at a rolling doughnut.

    If a weapon is properly concealed, how would anyone come to ask for a permit? Do they approach every shopper?
