I recently emailed the mall in Bowling Green and asked their policy on CCDW. Below is the response. Please let them know your feelings as you see fit. Bamafaninky Mrs. Olson, I thank you for your information regarding Greenwood Malls weapons policy. I urge you to reconsider your position on not allowing firearms on mall property. As a legal concealed carry permit holder I have undergone a background check by the State Police, I have taken a course and demonstrated that I can safely and skillfully handle a firearm. While I am sure you consider security measures adequate for most situations you have knowledge that I do not. You are simply asking me to trust that you have taken the correct measures. When it comes to the safety of my family I can't trust it to others. I'm sure the mall in Omaha, Virginia Tech., Columbine and a host of other gun free zones "thought" they had adequate security measures. In actuality the only persons who will honor your "no weapons allowed" policy are law abiding citizens such as myself. Until the point and time you learn that legal CCDW persons are not a threat only to criminals I will be forced to spend my money elsewhere. Thanks for your consideration. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Olson, Heidi" <Heidi.Olson@ggp.com> To: <> Sent: Tuesday, December 18, 2007 10:15 AM Subject: RE: Comments I am in receipt of your email below regarding security here at the Greenwood Mall and would like to take this opportunity to respond to your inquiry. The safety and well being of our shoppers and mall employees has always been our number one priority. Recent events only reinforce the importance of this priority. While I cannot discuss the actual security measures we have in place at the mall, due to the risk of compromising our efforts, I can assure you that we do have a customized security plan in place. We also have a well trained security staff as well as a close relationship with our local police department. We understand that it would be impossible for any public establishment to prevent all threats, but we do our best to minimize what we can and to be prepared for the rest. Regarding our weapons policy, we do not allow weapons (including firearms) on mall property. We truly appreciate receiving customer comments / concerns.

What security measures do you have at Greenwood and what is your policy on concealed weapons carry by liscensed individuals? Thanks for the information.
