My name Is Bob, I live in Mass. I live not far from the NH/Mass border, I carry an open carry holster under my leather jacket that would show 25% of the UncleMikes holster hanging down with my Megastar 45 on the side of my jeans but 80% of my pistol was covered. Today I had to pay my Verizon cell phone bill, I was walking threw the entrance and I could see that from a distance it looked like I was being followed but it was mall security officer who drives threw the parking lot, he went in the building and went my direction, when I got to the Verizon entrance of the mall I was approached my 2 other Mall security people, they asked me what I did for work I instead showed them my Non Resident Pistol/Revolver License to carry, they informed me that there was no weapons allowed on private property, they told me no matter what License I had it wasn't allowed because of the private property rule they had, they asked me how long would it take me to pay my bill and try to hide the rest of the holster. I payed my bill and left, no one followed me out the door but I know they were watching me leave from a very far distance. This was the first time I ever had this done and I have been carrying for 14 years in Mass and NH.
Has this happened to anyone here in this Mall? Are they allowed by State law to do this?
 

In Kansas it has to be posted with a sign of 8"x8" minimum with a picture of a handgun in a circle with a line thru it. I am sure that it varies by state.

In VA it has to be posted-no size limits on sign. It is NOT a weapons charge though, trespass, if you go on. Check laws for each state on their website, or click maps on USACarry homepage to see

just check Mass rules on USACarry, says open carry prohibited in most public areas.
just checked NH on USACarry, says Open Carry:
Unrestricted under state law and generally accepted.
Places off-limits when carrying:
1. Courtroom or area used by a court.....................since your holster WAS showing, you were considers open carry
 
The mall in question is in the state of NH. He was on private property. If you carry a beach ball on their property and ask you to leave, you have to leave.[/url]

^^^ This is how it works.

In most cases, regardless of signage if you are asked to leave, you must leave. Sounds like this time he was given permission to stay to complete the transaction. Generally, if asked to leave by the designated agent of the property owner, you must leave. In some states I understand that failure to leave can lead to armed trespassing charges. Your state laws will vary.
