Holsters are also banned?

Postby gfrlaser » Sat Dec 09, 2017 11:00 am

I've been carrying for many years and ran into a new experience the other day. I needed to visit the S.S. Administration offices in downtown Dayton. I already knew that I could not carry into the government building so I rid myself of my Ruger and my pen knife.

What stunned me was when they noticed the empty holster still attached to belt while going through the metal detector, I was told I had to take back it to my car and come back again without it. I had no idea a holster qualified as a 'weapon'.

When questioning the guard why the requirement he told me that 'someone' might see it and get the wrong idea. The look on his face told me that he really wanted to say some snowflake might see it and get upset.

To add.... I should have told him it was for my cell phone just to see if that would have passed muster :D

He was smart not to actually use that term though, as:

74 per cent [of 16-24 year-olds] think [using the term 'snowflakes' to refer to them] could have a negative effect on young people's mental health

Is that actual policy or just someone showing his bias? If I had time, I'd ask to see the policy or if he's just some snowflake who doesn't like leather and if so, shall I take my belt shoes and wallet out? It's a piece of blasted leather!

I've read similar reports from members here about the same policies in other government buildings. If time isn't an issue it might be worthwhile to see copy of the rule. For laughs, if nothing else.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

Whatever. It's a perfect term to use for someone who thinks they're special, regardless of age. My most recent use of it was to describe a professor to themselves.

The people claiming this stuff aren't qualified to speak on mental health orders, let alone self-descriptors - meds get prescribed based off patient complains, not doctor vetted, and create massive issues. Imagine this effect when people open mouths as authorities when they aren't even hobbyists.
Never settle for the ordinary.

Rights cease to exist when restrictions are put on them.

I had a funny one a couple years back:

I had to pick up a friend of the wife at the ER of a local hospital. (LONG story I'll skip for now :D.)

I knew that the place had the usual gunbuster signs, and as I drove by the entrance, I could see the "detector", so I left the 1911 in the car. About 4 degrees outside, and very slick ice on the parking lot surface.

Got inside and realized that I'd forgotten to remove the spare magazine from my belt. Asked the Security Officer if I could just keep the mag, or let him hold it for the half-hour (turned out to be more than an hour) that I'd be sitting there. NO....

(Actually, not a stupid rule - somebody else could have snuck the rest of the gun in, but I doubt if the pair would be quite as up-front about it :) .)

So, I had to slide back (that's about the only way to describe it) to the car....

On the way out (finally!), I asked the guard if he could sleep tonight after making an old guy like me walk back to the car in that sort of weather. His response was a smile, and "sure".... We both got a good laugh. WHO do you sue if you fall down during that "park the magazine" cycle?

(My "passenger" had no idea....)

I've had to remove holsters before - TSA at PIT (or CLE - I forget which :) decided that the little metal clip was a hazard.

Regards,
Stu.

Firearms are banned because they are deadly weapons. Empty holsters are banned because they are political statements.

1943, 18 - 24 year olds were storming the beaches of Europe, facing almost certain death.
2017, 18 -24 year olds need a safe space because their feelings are hurt.

How's that for progress?
