    Wal mart offically allows for concealed carry, they are pro-gun. if open carrying, they may ask you to conceal or leave. thats about it.

    Or they may not ask you anything. I carry open at many Wal-Marts and no one ever says anything.

    Walmarts policy says that if you are legal to carry than you can carry in their store. They do prefer that you carry concealed and occasionally an employee that isn't aware of the policy will start a stink and cause all kinds of problems for someone who is open carrying.

    I carry concealed under a t-shirt most of the time and have never had a problem at any walmart I have visited. I've been going a lot lately because one near me has 9mm Blazer Brass for $8.97 a box but they don't ever have very much and I have been trying to stock up.


    I just reread the OP and wanted to make sure to clarify something.Walmart or the grocery store or the mall are not considered Public Gatherings unless there is an event going on such as a show or radio promotion in the parking lot. It also makes no difference whether you OC or CC if you are at a Public Gathering, either way you would be breaking the law. The Public Gathering law in Ga is very confusing and many LEO don't understand it so how is the public supposed to understand it. This is one of the many laws that GeorgiaCarry.org is campaigning to have repealed during this years legislative session .
