IANAL but there is typically no liability incurred incurred by posting a place as a victim disarmament zone. I suppose a case could be made in the event of gross negligence, but I suspect it would be difficult to argue such a case.PCShogun said:If a lawyer should read this, I have a question:
If a business prevents me from carrying a personal defense weapon, is not that business required to take steps to then enure my protection since they have removed that right from me?
I do not refer to a store that I want to shop at, I also refer to a business where I may work at. If an employee or robber comes into the location and I am threatened or injured, I feel I should have some recourse as I have had my ability to defend myself removed due to their policy and they took no steps to ensure my defense at their business (no armed guard).
Some may argue that I "Chose" to shop at a particular establishment, and in many cases this would be true. But what If I were at the DMV, or paying a bill in person, or at work. I have to be there, its not a choice anymore.
