The mall bans gun so when a shop owner uses one to stop a thief, he is under threat of being evicted. Maybe they should reconsider their policies. Wouldn’t want to announce to the whole criminal world that you are defenseless, would you?
The Southland Mall in Memphis, TN has a no guns policy. That policy apparently extends to business owners, workers and even security guards inside the mall.
However, one shop owner carried one at his cookie shop anyway, taking a “refuse to be a victim” mindset.
When three men stole cash from the register, the store owner drew his 9mm handgun, chased the suspects off, and, not very smartly in our opinion, fired three “warning shots” in the mall parking lot.
Now the owner is facing possible eviction from the retail space he leases from the mall due to his violation of the “no guns” policy.
