A Fred Meyer store at 2497 SE Burnside Road has been evacuated after police received a report of an armed man at that location.So carrying a gun automatically equals shooting/armed robbery... really?... no one has been shot and the gun was not displayed as part of an armed robbery.
According to management at my Fred Meyer store (in Oregon) they follow state law. If it's legal outside, it's legal inside the store. I just wish the malls followed that.
No crime being committed, but they evacuate the store? Based on what one person thought they saw? Guess it's better to freak out than be sorry.
I open carry all the time at Fred Meyer, get the occasional "look", but have also had many people thanks me for carrying and/or ask me about the laws in Oregon.
Glad they didn't have something else to do.police vehicles were seen in the parking lot for at least an hour after the store reopened.
