    Someone armed with a concealed weapon, in most states, is a breach of the peace and threat to public safety. Screeners are usually ordered to detain the person as part of their post orders. Once the weapon is discovered, the suspect is to be physically arrested to prevent him from drawing it and using it, and the weapon recovered.

    Most screeners are unarmed.
    In order to determine the legalities involved you'd have to refer to the individual state's law and court decisions on interpretation of such. For example, in my state an unlawfully concealed weapon is not a breach of the peace nor is it a felony, but it is a breach of the peace to display one calculated to alarm and it is a felony to point a gun, discharge it at one's general vicinity, or actually shoot someone, aside from legal justification of deadly force. Arrest by the property owner or designee may or may not be warranted based on the situation. I do believe the idea of chasing the gunman around the building on foot is an unsafe and foolish idea though.

    Gunned Down at Bar

    Cincinnati, OH:
    Adrian Battle, who worked at First Note for eight years, was gunned down by a bar patron who had a gun. Weapons were not permitted in the club and when the concealed gun was located the suspect took off running. Battle was shot down while pursuing the suspect.
