The mall normally post on all main mall entrance, however most of the store entrances normally will not post.  What does that mean?

While it does welcome the public on to the property, Triangle Town Center is private property and its owners are afforded the same rights and privileges as any other private property owner.

In prohibiting weapons on property, except by certified law enforcement officers, Triangle Town Center's intent is not to limit anyone's rights.

Rather, its owners are exercising their rights as a private property owner to operate their business in manner it feels best suits its invited guests and customers.

Triangle Town Center owners, in accordance with North Carolina State Statute 14-415.11(c), as a "person in legal possession or control of the premises", posts its desire, through its Code of Conduct Policy, to prevent
weapons of any kind, including permitted concealed handguns, at all major entrances. So they post: "Alcoholic beverages and the carrying of firearms is prohibited"

Signs are located at each road entrance informing guests of the Code of Conduct Policy and directing them to its placement in the center.  In addition, a copy of the policy is posted on the center's website at

Here is one gentlman's mall experience that he posted on the Open Carry forum:

"So today walking through the store with the SO, we wandered into American Eagle and as I am in there a security guard walks up to me and asks me to step outside the store with him, I comply. He informs me that they do not allow anyone to carry firearms in the mall. I ask if it is Written anywhere to this effect and he informs me that it is posted on the entrance but it is very small and hard to see. He then tells me that I can lock it up in my car and return. Mind you he was being very polite (his partner was silent) I said that I did not see any such signage but I will be leaving as soon as I grab my SO. So I go back in the store, grab her and inform her and we leave the store with the Guards standing outside..."

Firearms Training
by Elrod
Concealed Carry

“This class was very informational. I think before citizens are able to purchase a firearm they should be required to take this class. By being in this class I was able to learn my rights as a firearm owning citizen.

The class was perfect, it included an instructional video and there was material available for hands on learning. The instructors were very involved and really cared that you were able to understand the materials covered in the classroom. The instructors used real life scenarios that helped class retain material.”
Rodney Reddick

“This class is a very good class. It help me learn a lot of stuff, like safely. I feel good about this class.”
Shane Howell

“This class is great for the understanding and confidence in using a handgun. The instruction of the class helps you determine when and what you need to do in case any situation arises. As far as things to do better for the class, I would say keep everything the same. All points were explained as needed and were given opportunity to ask and get questions answered.”
