Open Carry in WalMart leads to lifetime ban

There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

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.

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.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

I support open carry.

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-)
