About those signs. In (God Bless) Kentucky, I'm most likely carrying right past them and I don't hardly give a fig what anybody else thinks about it. The only time you'll know I have it is if somebody needs shooting. At that point, providing things turn out okay, you'll be like, "Dang, I'm sure glad you had that on ya."
So no thoughts on what anyone would do at Mall of America?
So, the Mall of America has specifically been called out as a target by the same group that attacked the mall in Kenya that resulted in 67 deaths in 2013. The Mall of America has signs banning firearms in the mall. The mall is private property. If you go, do you ignore the ban or not?
I was channel surfing just a couple days ago and stopped at Cam & Company on the Outdoor Channel( I think that's where I was) .... they were discussing it.
Which they were talking with a state rep from Minnesota and he stated that the way their laws were setup when they passed legislation on concealed carry ... the signs were really illegal. That they can't stop or charge anyone from carrying concealed inside the Mall of America.
He also stated that Mall of America corporate administrators were involved in discussions when the concealed carry legislation was passed and they know this. Again ... a difference in the way the laws from state to state.
But this was the only time I've heard this mentioned on TV.

I should have been more clear. The media should let us know that the Mall of America is perfectly safe due to the prohibition of firearms within the mall. The potential terrorists will be stopped dead in their tracks.
I was in cincy over the weekend on a business trip. The 11 of us decided to eat at Toby Keith's I love this bar and grill. Upon entering the place I notice a sign that says "no firearms on premises". 4 of us had to return to the vehicles to remove our concealed firearms. I was very upset about this because of the type of symbolism Toby Keith puts in his music about being a redneck, pro-military, anti-terrorist, and generally speaking-just an all-American country boy. Now I realize I don't really know "who" actually owns the restaurant, and I'm sure they have their reasons for not allowing firearms in their joint it I think they are being very hypocritical and sending mixed signals..."hey we are all proud to be Americans and support the 2nd amendment, just don't bring your guns in here". Needless to say we will not be going back and Toby Keith loses a lot of my respect.
P.s.- a sign that reads no guns in here only stops law abiding citizens like myself, a criminal could easily post up outside, around the corner or whatever and rob and/or kill anyone coming out of that place cause they are virtually guaranteed to preying on the unarmed. Ohio recognizes ky's ccdw permit, this place needs to get with the program. Anyway I just wanted to pass this along.
