SAN ANTONIO — The shopper who had a concealed carry license and shot a robbery suspect should not have been carrying a gun inside Rolling Oaks Mall, according to the mall’s policy. KENS 5 obtained a copy of the mall’s conduct policy posted inside the shopping center. The fourth item on the list of prohibited actions stated “carrying or possessing any weapons of any kind.”
Let’s get one thing from the beginning: The Mall did not have the 30.06 signs posted anywhere, just a line in a page posted inside the entrance of the mall. So legally the armed shopped was in the clear. But let us continue because the mall’s management went from dumb to fully fledged stupid.
“The mall’s policy notes that violating any part of it could result in one’s loss of privileges to the shopping center and a violation that could result in criminal prosecution.”
Well, Bohohoo! How will I survive without Cinnabons?
Mall management declined to give additional details about their code of conduct policy.
Maybe because it is stupid and you got caught straddling the fence between posting the Gun Free Zone signs and pissing off Gun Owners with carry permits?
“Although we respect the laws of the state and individual rights, we do, however, maintain a separate code of conduct that we visibly post at our entrances that includes the prohibition of any weapons on the property. Our top priority continues to be the safety of our shoppers as we strive to provide the best possible shopping experience for all,” said Christensen
Dustin, baby. in case you did not see it, the effing robbers were packing guns so they kinda ignored your code of conduct which not only prohibits firearms but also armed robbery, which is typified in your code of conduct where it says: “engaging or encouraging any activity that violates local, state or federal law.” * as shown in the photo above. So your sudden indignation against the shopper is full of crap.
By the read of the article, our friend Dustin and his company are more pissed off at the Good Guy with a Gun than the criminal. You now what? The family of the deceased shopper should sue the daylights out to the Mall and the Parent company for failing to provide adequate security. If they seem to acknowledge guns are bad (m’kay) and they don’t want them in their properties not taking some basic precautions like metal detectors at every entry point should have been up and running.
Weasels… weasels everywhere. You have to be a low piece of corporate America when you go against a Law Abiding citizen and don’t even have two words of ire for the criminals that murdered one of your shoppers.
PS: The widow of the victim speaks:
“I think he was trying to stand in between to protect me, maybe protect the children. I don’t know, I don’t know what he was thinking. He didn’t say anything and the guy just started shooting him,” said Murphy.
*I am guessing the last two words, the pic is blurry, but I figure it is a safe bet.
