This would get shut down real fast if every 2A supporter prints out a copy of the letter, signs their name to it, and sends it back to WalMart.

Even if it's only NRA members, 5 million people signing-on to a "lifetime ban" on entering any WalMart would have the BOD starting a search for a new CEO.

I'm in.
It would make my life a lit easier. GF prattles on about the convenience... I only ever go there under protest and with the two gun rule in effect.

The first rule of open carry is: "Don't be a dick".

If a business doesn't want you to open carry on their premises, don't. To do otherwise is to be a dick.

As of now, Walmart has not posted signs banning CCW. I'm guessing because "concealed means concealed", the Suzy Soccer-moms won't be aware of it.

But continued open carry in violation of their request may lead to them saying "Screw it, all carry is banned."

I personally think Wally World has made a serious mistake by ceasing guns sales.......but I hear the BoDs of Academy giggling with glee...... ;)

Walmart doesn't have many stores or customers nationwide. I'm sure that all Walmart associates will have this guy's face memorized and be on the lookout for him in every store.

I support open carry.

I also teach "use your ever loving mind -- don't scare the horses."

Yes, this.

Furthermore, it is their property, they set the rules. If you do not like it, do not go there.

NOTE: I will follow that guideline.....up to a point.

If they ban CCW, I will probably just ignore their wishes.

I do just that when I go to the Cinema here in Cenla, although it is indeed rare for me to go to the movie theater. They have a "gun free" sign. I ignore it. After all, concealed means concealed......... 8-)
