Dear (PERSON),

Your attention is required on a matter to insure the Maplewood Mall becomes compliant with Minnesota State law. This letter is being sent to you regarding signs banning guns that are posted at the entrances to the Maplewood Mall in Maplewood, MN, which houses American Eagle Outfitters, Charlotte Russe, Old Navy, Sam Goody, Marshall Fields, and others.

The signs in question, which say “Maplewood Mall Bans Guns on these Premises” (hereinafter referred to as “the signs”) are not in compliance with MN State Statute 624.714, Sub 17, (e ) which states:

(e) A landlord may not restrict the lawful carry or
possession of firearms by tenants or their guests.

The posting of these sign(s) places the Maplewood Mall in non-compliance of Minnesota Statute 624.714, Sub 17, (e) by restricting Mall patrons from carrying firearms while in the Mall common areas, and also restricts Tenants and their patrons from carrying firearms to and from their place of business. The signs are posted just inside the public access doors to the mall, as well as the mall entrances coming from Marshall Fields, Barnes and Noble book store, and other anchor stores. The signs appear to be done in black text on a white background.

The signs in question also do not have the correct verbiage printed on them, which also makes them not compliant under MN Statute 624.714, Sub 17, (i) which states:

(i) the requester has prominently posted a conspicuous sign
at every entrance to the establishment containing the following
language: "(INDICATE IDENTITY OF OPERATOR) BANS GUNS
IN THESE PREMISES."

Because the Maplewood Mall is a public shopping center, and the shopping center itself is the Landlord of the Tenants operating business within, signs of this nature cannot be posted at the entrances of the Maplewood Mall or in the common areas of any of the Maplewood Mall owned and/or operated buildings or properties. Only the Tenants of the shopping center have the right to post their private business, not the shopping mall itself.

The signs banning guns that are posted at the Maplewood Mall must be taken down immediately. If there are other signs banning guns on other entrances not listed in this request you must remove these signs as well for the same reasons of law listed above. Because the sign is not in compliance with MN Statute 624.714, please note that it is also not enforceable by local, county, or state law enforcement agencies; citizens who possess a Minnesota Permit to Carry a Pistol shall not be prosecuted for not acknowledging the sign.

Please also note that Minnesota residents that have a permit to carry are some of the most upright, respectful citizens you'll ever meet. They have never been convicted of a felony, drug offense, and are confirmed to have no mental defects of disabilities. They have passes a criminal history background check, and have been given the right to carry a firearm by their local County Sheriff. These permits are not handed out to anyone who crosses the Sheriff's door. Your signs may drive away thousands of potential customers, who, may be legally carrying a firearm to protect themselves and others, and are unable to enter your property. Large businesses that operate stores outside of the Maplewood Mall, such as Marshall Fields and Barnes and Noble, have elected not to post the signs at any of their other Minnesota locations.

Your prompt attention is requested in this matter; if you have any further questions or concerns, or wish to speak with me directly regarding the resolution of this issue, please don't hesitate to use the contact information included with this letter.

Respectfully yours,
