was up at walmart tonight with my ma. well she had to use the bathroom and asked if i could do the whole check out thing so that we could leave and not waste time. so i went back to the video section to check out. the employee back there(did not catch his name, had black hair that was a little long) told me that i could not open carry.
not the exact words but as close as i can remember
him: you know i retired from the sheriffs dept. up in maryland
me: (wondering what brought this up) ok
him: so what do you do
me: i am in between jobs at the moment
him: so your not a cop
me: no why
him: why do you have a gun then
me: personal protection.
him: you know we just had someone arrested because they wanted to carry a gun around town with them.
me: you do know that it is legal according to your corporate policy.
him: well we have a bank in here and it is apart of the store and that is why the took him away. they waited for him outside.
me: well it might have been something else then.
him: well you do what you want just remember i told you
i paid and left to go back up front. at that point i went to one of the managers to ask them about this. the lady that i talked to said that she did not know and went to ask another manager or he was one step up cuz he wore a dress shirt and dress pants. he then came over and told me dont worry that if i want to OC or CC in the store then i m more then welcome. he then went to say that he has had a problem with this guy and would deal with him later. at that point i had not told him who it was that i had the problem with. he then went to tell me that he was sorry and to have a good night. all in all the guy up front manager or someone high up took me by surprise. left feeling pretty good.
later on went into radio shack were one of the stores employee asked if i was legal when i said yes we went on with the convo like nothing had happened.
all in all good night,
oh and i will post the walmart story in a new post.
