Statement on Mall of America Gun Ban

The Mall of America has long had a policy to prohibit lawful carry of firearms by Minnesotans, including posting signs throughout the mall and removing permit holders seen to be carrying firearms.

Minnesota law, however, prohibits a landlord from interfering with the carrying of firearms under MN statute 624.714 by tenants or their guests.

The Mall of America is well aware that as landlords they cannot ban lawful carry. Carrying at the Mall of America does not violate the law, only the mall's wishes.

The current threat environment makes it unconscionable to seek to prohibit self-defense by the mall's customers.

- Bryan Strawser, Executive Director, Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee

    Interesting thing about that word “concealment;” it means no one can see what’s being concealed. So, what they don’t know can’t hurt them. But I’ll be getting a lot of “thank you’s” should there ever be a SHTF moment. And if history is any sign, it will happen again.

    No one pays attention to those signs; just ignore them!
