How is that bad? It's an unfunded mandate.
Not at all. They could avoid the expense by not prohibiting firearms.
My best info (I consider reliable at this time) is that the offensive language is in fact NRA drafted and pushed.
I haven't checked for years, but some 15 years ago, Arizona required most places of public accommodation that didn't want to allow OC to take possession of and responsibility for your gun while you were there. Think of "checking your gun" in with the bartender in old movies. In the Tucson area there were a few grocery stores that would ask you to check your gun while shopping (they'd lock it in a safe for you).
Obviously, any such mandates from government on a private business run afoul of some political views. But a requirement to provide safe storage if guns are not welcome might also be viewed as less onerous than just a mandate to allow guns.
