Yesterday I went to a local casino (operated under the NYS Lottery) while Dad was getting dialysis. Was there about 2 hours when 2 Sheriff's Deputies and several casino security approached and asked if I was "________", I said yes and they asked me to step to the side with them. I did while security watched my VP machine. One deputy asked me if I was armed and I said yes and lifted my sweater where my G26 was IWB. The deputy took it out and then asked me to accompany them to the security office. Inside they explained that it was NY Lottery "policy" to not allow firearms. I explained that I am always very, very careful when entering any public establishment to look for signs regarding the carrying of firearms. I said I saw no such sign when I came in. (Casinos are not a place regulated by law for a prohibition against cc - schools, courthouses, etc are specified by statute). Security told me there was a sign on all doors. Everyone was very polite. The deputies ran my pistol permit to determine that it was valid, ran the serial number to makes sure the gun was not stolen and then returned it to me. Security said that I was being asked to leave for the day only and not to carry again. I was escorted part way out and then went to the front of the casino to pick up my car. I looked at the door and noticed that all the signage was done by frosting the letters on clear glass which gave the letters a whiteish-silver effect. The warning about the firearms was lined up perfectly with the back of the crash bar on the inside of the door making the lettering virtually impossible to read. One of the deputies came out (after escorting a drunk out) and I pointed this out to him. He said he would take it up with casino security. No crime was committed, but being in NY I am paranoid about whether the casino might report to the County Judges that I had been cc'ing in a place where I was "warned" not to carry a firearm implying that I am not a responsible firearms owner. This could lead to my permit being revoked. Should I just wait it out or are there suggestions of what I might do to forestall or prepare for the possibility of a report to our licensing officers (judges). PS: Both deputies were very young and one said that the JHP's in my gun were "illegal". I told him they were not armor piercing, so were legal. He checked with a superior and was assured they were legal as long as they were not teflon coated. PPS: Does anyone have any thoughts on how they knew my full name when they approached me? I do not use a casino card in the machine that does track play under a name. If using a card they could determine who was at a particular machine, but like I said, I was not using such a card. The only thing I could think of was facial recognition off surveillance tapes matched to DMV photos but that seems pretty sophisticated for that place.
