    It’s going to be interesting to observe how I’m treated by these establishments when I visit them next. As far as I can tell, they are making ‘requests’ and not setting ‘policy’.

    I had an encounter with a local mall security manager a few years ago. One of his constables told me I couldn’t have my side-arm on their property. The property was not posted.
