I did not mention closed, I mentioned doors locked. Sam's, to name but one private business from the OP's op, locks it doors to the general public during their normal operating hours. We enter at their pleasure and our 1A and 2A right is subordinate to their private property right. We can be asked to leave their property due to nothing more than our being armed, as is their right. To avoid these situations I only patronize businesses that acknowledge and respect our 2A guarantee. You hold a differing position regarding private property rights...no biggie.
I remain perplexed that individual liberty seeking, rights respecting citizens do not display consistency on this particular topic.
We are talking past each other. I'm talking about a closed business vs open business and you drag in a members only store.
I don't know your state . Mine the property owner can tell me to leave for no reason at all.
But while I am ON the property I have the right to be armed, period.
The property owner nor the police can legally disarm me for simply carrying there.
I'm totally consistant. I and you and everyone else has an absolute,right to be armed and to SD.
That should not and as far as I'm concerned does not depend on anyone else's whim.
