I went to a bar/club where my friends were DJ'ing. They had a dude patting people down at the door wearing a 'Fugitive Recovery' t-shirt with a gun in an OWB holster. Had some sort of badge on his belt too. There was also a sign stating that guns/knives/etc would be confiscated if found. My friend there said the guy is a bounty hunter. Down here in the hood, I on occasion will carry in to a place selling alcohol if I know I'm not drinking and feel the benefit outweighs the risk. The area the bar/club was in is a really, really shitty area of Detroit. I walked in there, saw the sign, put my gun back in my car, then came back in. Say I walked in there with my gun on me, can they legally confiscate it if the dude patted me down and found it? I know establishments can post signs saying no guns allowed, but my best understanding so far has been only an officer of the law can take it away from you. Not really familiar with the authority bounty hunters have, but my impression has been they can really only affect the rights of those they're trying to locate (such as entering their property without a warrant). This is a brand new situation to me here, so I'm not all that informed. Please clarify anything you can here. Thanks guys.
