What To Do If Approached About Carrying A Firearm In A Store

Virginia – -( I have been conferring with one of Virginia Citizens Defense League’s attorneys and offer this general advice if approached by a store employee and/or the police while carrying in a business:

If approached by a store employee, ask to speak to the manager (often employees don’t know that while the store may prohibit them, as employees, from carrying at work, the store may not prevent customers from doing so).

If the manager or store security confirms they don’t want you carrying in the store, just politely and quietly leave the store. Do NOT ask that they post the business with a “no guns” sign.

You DO NOT have to identify yourself, nor do you have to sign anything. You should simply leave without argument.

If the police are involved and they ask you to identify yourself, you should do so to them only. Do NOT sign any document except in the extremely unlikely case that it is a summons to appear in court issued by the police. (Failure to sign a summons will leave the police with no choice but to arrest you.) Leave the store once the police have indicated you are free to go. If the police want you to sign something from the company, just say you don’t sign anything unless you have a lawyer present and stick to that. You will not be charged with trespass if this is the first time the police have approached you at that business. You have committed no crime, so there is nothing to sign.

All that said, be polite to the officers and do NOT debate the company’s policy with the police. You have nothing to gain by being anything other than reasonable and pleasant.

    In las Vegas a few years ago a med tec was in a big box store. Clerk saw bulge he ask med tec about it, tec explained he had concealed carry perment . Clerk called cops, who shot the med tec dead as he left store then threw down a throw away gun. Then judge called it a justified shooting. Nevada is an open carry state.
