    Stopped off at Wal-Mart to buy up all their 40 cal rounds and noticed they finally have no firearms allowed signs. They don't have the "image" we'd expect to see so I'm not sure how legit it is. But the signs are new.

    By the way, Ammo prices are supposed to be rising in the next week or two, which prompted me to stock pile.

    Just thought I would spread the word since I remember seeing somebody post that they OC'd in Super Wal-Marts before. Looks like they had a change of heart.

    Well you don't identify the store - a store number would help, and a photo; but in Ohio isn't carry in WalMarts selling alcohol illegal already? If so, maybe the sign is trying to HELP people.

    No idea on the store number. Being it's here in Toledo and Wal-Mart makes policies by the state, I'd have to assume all Ohio Super Wal-Mart's now have this policy.

    I'm just sharing the info, one of the many purposes of the internet. I know a few people in Ohio do OC in Super Wal-Marts so this may perk some discussion.

    I'm sure it relates to legal interpretation of "dispense alcohol" in their decision to ban firearms.

    Only if it is deing dispensed:

    2923.121 Possession of firearm in liquor permit premises - prohibition, exceptions.

    (A) No person shall possess a firearm in any room in which liquor is being dispensed in premises for which a D permit has been issued under Chapter 4303. of the Revised Code or in an open air arena for which a permit of that nature has been issued.
    From the AG concealed handgun handbook:

    Premises that dispense liquor. Concealed firearms are also banned

    in a room or arena in which liquor is dispensed for which a class D

    permit has been issued. A class D permit is generally issued to an

    establishment that sells alcohol for consumption on the premises. Be

    certain of the type of permit and whether liquor is being dispensed

    before you enter with a concealed handgun


    The sign you saw was, in my opinion, a sign required by the state liquor board that has something to do with using a firearm to rob a liquor store. If it is the sign I am thinking of, it has nothing to do with the lawful possesion of firearms. Please let us know the wording.

    No problem, I'll check it out and get a picture if I can. It did have a seal on it, and like I mentioned, it did not have a NO GUNS image I'm used to seeing.

    I'm 95% sure you're correct.

    I talked to a Super Walmart manager where I live currently (OH) about a "no firearms" sign that they had posted. It was a response to an incident they had, and gave them some sort of legal recourse to remove this man from their property if the incident happened again. He was Pro-2A and the sign was down shortly thereafter.
