    Thumbs up Haywood Mall (Greenville SC)

    I do not like to go to the mall, but last night, my glasses broke, and I needed a replacement pair quick - the Lens Crafters in the the mall was open till 9, so I headed there. I am happy to report, that Haywood Mall does NOT have a "NO CONCEALABLE WEAPONS ALLOWED" sign on the doors.

    Nothing out of the ordinary happened, but thought I'd pass along my findings... :)

    That's good to know. I wonder if there is a place to find information on businesses that are posted against carry in SC.

    That would be great Danno, All the malls here in Myrtle Beach have sighns at the doors going in.. But not the legal size as the law states, .. Only the Horry co. Electric co, has legal sighns posted that I know of, and boy do they have them ever where, in the parking lots, on the doors, they ment for them to be seen...........
    take care, I'll be loooking for the database.............

    Next time you go to Haywood mall go in through the Food Court entrance. Look on the left side of the doors and you will see a list of forbidden items. No weapons allowed is one of them. It means nothing but it is there.

    Grangers over on Congaree road has a legal sign up by the entrance but if you walk around to the loading dock... none of the entrances on the side have a sign. Both my banks, Suntrust and SC Employees Credit union, have none legal signs.

    In this case, my concealed "firearm" would be permitted. I don't consider it to be a "weapon". It's a tool that I use for sporting purposes, and personal protection.

    I find it imperative for folks to use proper language when dealing with anyone. Our NRA classes strictly forbid the use of the "w" word. I've noticed that folks in general are a little more understanding and accommodating if you use the word "firearm" versus "weapon". If they said that the "firearm" was a "weapon", then one could argue that a flashlight, ball point pen, umbrella, etc. can also be used as a "weapon", so following their logic, those items should be prohibited as well.

    It's much safer to do the "don't ask, don't tell" thing. Since they use the word "weapon", then as long as you're licensed to carry and "legal", then carrying a concealed firearm shouldn't cause any problems.

    If I ran a store open to the public I would have a sign that said something like no illegal weapons allowed.... this would keep any and all armed crooks out.

    :hilarious: he he he! blume, you so funny!
    If I ran a store open to the public, I would have a large sign announcing:

    ATTENTION POTENTIAL and PROSPECTIVE BAD GUYS
    Legal firearms are permitted and encouraged in this establishment
    Therefore:ENTER AT YOUR OWN PERIL

  11. Hello all,
    Just wanted to let you all know that I work in the mall as an LP investigator. I know several of the City Officers that work that area and I know a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff regarding the properties. If you all have any questions, let me know and I'll be glad to try and track down some concrete answers. Also, on a side note, from what I've been reading, even if a business has a tall, door-sized sign that states, "NO GUNS ALLOWED!!!," it doesn't cut it legally. From what I understand there is a VERY specific signing that needs to be applied at ALL entrances in order for this order to be valid. I mean, it comes down to even having to have a certain sized font, etc. for the writing. Of course, if it's a privately owned business, they can always tell you to leave. But, then again, why would they know you are armed in the first place? Hmmmmm:suspicious:
