Good man. I feel the same way.My wife and I took our 3 yr old grand daughter to the zoo on Thursday the 9th,
I oc my xdm .40c .
We parked and went to the main gate and I saw the sign about fire arms and it didn't say no fire arms, something about fire arms thru this line, or something like that.
No one said anything and we went to our first exhibit and realized we had forgot to pay for parking and so we rushed out to get our parking permit and put it on the window of our car.
On the way back in a zoo security patrol was driving by and I said hi and let him know he had a tire going low.
He said thanks and waited for us to cross the road toward the main gate.
I watched him park his patrol car and he went running towards me and I told my wife that I think he is going to stop me, but he went passed me and into the admin. building.
We went in and I went to use the rest room and on my way out of the rest room I was stopped by the same security officer and the zoo admin.
He asked if he could have a chat with me and , I said sure and he asked me if I had a chl and if he could see it and went on about my gun might scare the people or the kids , and at the time, there was allot of kids there on a field trip.
The admin was cool and polite to me the whole time , I told him that I did have a chl and that he had no authority to look at my chl or even stop me.
He agreed to that and I showed him my chl any ways and he asked if I could conceal my gun and I told him I didn't have to by law and my rights , but I would for I was there for grand daughter and wife to have a good time , not to worry anyone even though just because other people are miss informed about their rights.
All in all, it went pretty good and we had a good time even though allot of the animals that I remembered seeing there are not there anymore, elk, penguins, rhinos, zebras and few more.
