    NO gun, NO money.:P
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I know I sound like a *****, (please don't take it that way) but please use punctuation and proofread. I know you aren't required to, but it makes it easier to understand what is posted.

    Hopefully this trend of Walmart kicking out gun owners doesn't continue.

    Anybody else think Mike is messing with me because of my previous post? Hilarious! It's a pretty good joke if it was meant to be that. I probably deserve it!

    Walmarts policy is to allow individual store managers to decide how to handle it. (Ban or not Ban). There is no corporatepolicy.



    This was raised awhile ago when someone wrote a letter to coporate after they were asked to leave. I'll see if I can find it, I don't remember what forum it was on.


    ETA:
    3. New firearms policy at Wal-Mart lets district managers decide
    **************************************************
    Member A.L. Soots relays his experience at the Fairlawn Wal-Mart:
    Mr. Van Cleave,
    About a month ago, a relative of mine was in the Wal-Mart in
    Fairlawn. He was doing some shopping while open carrying his weapon.
    After being in the store for a little while, he was confronted by the
    assistant store manager, Jim Hancock, who told him that he was
    breaking the law by carrying his firearm, and asked him to remove it
    in the store and let him take it. When my relative said no, the
    manager told him that he could either go with him to the office and
    "straighten this out" or be prosecuted.
    He said, "OK," not knowing what he was going to be prosecuted for.
    When they got to the back of the store, the assistant manager then
    called the Pulaski Sheriff's Department and put the deputy on speaker
    phone and asked what my relative could be charged with. When the
    deputy told him that there was no law being broken, he then hung up
    and started telling my relative that "things were going to change
    when the next president was elected...and people like my relative
    were going to lose their rights to carry weapons."
    When my relative wanted to leave, he was told that he had to write a
    report. After the report was written and signed, he then told him to
    leave the property. There were witnesses to this. After I talked with
    Dave Knight about this, he called and talked with the store manager
    who told him that her store employees would "be educated" and that
    they weren't to bother anyone carrying a weapon in the store.
    Well, last night (August 28, 2007) I was in the same store to
    purchase some ammo for a CCW class that I was teaching. I was in the
    store with a friend of mine. We walked straight from the front door
    to the sporting goods department (open carrying). After standing at
    the counter with no help for a few minutes we were confronted by the
    SAME assistant manager and another employee.
    Mr. Hancock told us that we were not welcome in the store while
    carrying a weapon and he wanted us OFF THE PROPERTY NOW. I asked him
    if this was store policy or his policy. He said it didn't matter, and
    that if we did not leave, we would be charged with trespassing.
    We turned to walk out of the store and Mr. Hancock followed us on our
    heels all the way out. I stopped at one point to ask him why he was
    following us. After we left I made a call to the district supervisor,
    Terry Sartain, and left a message at his office because it was after
    hours. I spoke with Mr. Sartain this morning and he told me that the
    local managers and he were working on a new firearms policy.
    He said that they had cleared it with the home office and the legal
    department and that they were OK to change the policy in his store to
    NO FIREARMS...NO CONCEALED OR OPEN CARRY!! He said that the signs
    were being printed and would be posted in a couple of days.
    The stores affected by this change are Fairlawn, Christiansburg, and
    Salem, with Roanoke stores to follow. So, it looks like Wal-Mart is
    falling. What do we do about this, or is there anything that we can
    do?
    (Update: I just spoke with someone at corporate and was told by them
    that the new Wal-Mart corporate policy on firearms is to let district
    managers decide on the firearms policy for their stores. It is in
    their hands and out of corporate.)
    --
    I will let everyone know when the signs get posted (if they get
    posted). There are many different ways we may choose to respond, I
    will let you know what we suggest in a future update.
