Pointing Out Stupidity

Sometimes that all a guy can do:

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - Every kid knows hanging out with Mom or Dad can be kind of a drag. Kids who want to spend time at the Pheasant Lane Mall on Friday or Saturday nights might not have a choice.
If the parent can't accompany the child during those times, they are asked to take the youngster home, she said.

If kids are found to be disrupting the mall's business, Szymanski said they will be escorted to the command center to call a parent to pick them up.
Szymanski said the mall doesn't have a gang problem, but that people with certain attire - such as long chains that fall below the knee or studded dog or wrist collars, all of which can be used as weapons, she said - will be asked to remove them. If they don't comply, they will be asked to leave the mall, she said.

Leann Newcomb questioned the rule.

"They sell that stuff," said Newcomb. "How are they going to tell the kids after they buy that stuff not to wear it? Isn't that a violation of your constitutional rights?" (emphasis mine)
To answer your question, Ms. Newcomb: No. That is, in fact, not a violation of you Constitutional Rights. I just looked and I can't find anything in the Constitution's text, Bill or Rights or later amendments that indicates a recognized right to wear whatever clothing you wish on someone's personal property.

Of course, there's always the possibility that at some point in the future an unconstitutional law might be passed prohibiting owners of private property to regulate conduct on said property. Oh wait, that's already been done.
