This makes me mad.
“A Memphis, Tenn., business owner is under fire and may lose his lease after he chased three robbers from his store with a 9 mm handgun – all because his cookie shop is located in a mall with a “no firearms” policy.
Police are still looking for the thieves who stole $45 from a cash register in the Southland Mall Cookie Bakery on Aug. 7. After the men made off with the money, the store owner chased them into the parking lot and fired three warning shots.
Thirteen security guards work at the mall and the Memphis Police Department’s South Precinct is located nearby. However, in 2010, one security guard – a former Marine – was shot and killed by a gang member at the mall as he tried to break up a fight. State prosecutor Ray Lepone said he “was brutally murdered in cold blood in broad daylight in front of women and children.”
After the shooting, the mall instituted a strict no firearms policy, even for security guards. The mall posts warnings on its doors indicating no guns are allowed on the premises.”
Memphis City Council member Harold Collins told WHBQ-TV even though the store owner has the right to protect his property, he didn’t exercise good judgment.
“Do you fault him for exercising that kind of judgment? Of course you do,” he said. “There ought to be penalties for that. I’m hoping that [there] will be.”
The only people who should be penalized are the CRIMINALS, what the heck is happening to this country? “No Guns “signs don’t scare the criminals, they only inform them that most people inside that mall will be unarmed and defenseless.
I want you to contact Southland Mall in Memphis, be polite, but tell them you won’t shop there until they learn to respect the Second Amendment. When you ban guns, you ban gun owners. When you discriminate against one of us, you discriminate against all of us.
If you’re a security guard at that mall, find another job and quit. If they won’t allow you to carry a gun, they don’t care about your life. Southland Mall hates your guts and wants you dead. That is the only conclusion we can draw from their un-American anti-gun policy. Are you getting paid enough to die?
If you’re a shopper, take your your business elsewhere. Once business drops everyone else who has a lease will be screaming for a pro-gun policy that brings back customers.
Boycott Southland Mall! Respect our 2nd Amendment!
