My latest personal letter to Walmart (some of you may recognize pieces of it)
A little about me before we begin; I carry a gun about my person on a daily basis. I have a concealed pistol license issued by Washington State which means I’ve passed all the necessary State and Federal background checks for someone to carry a gun. I am a Combat Veteran and I was also on various US Army pistol teams during my 9.5 years in the service. Depending on my manner of dress I may conceal my weapon or Open Carry my weapon both of which, are legal to do so in Washington state. Open Carry does not require a license only concealed carry. When I am at your store I am usually there for 1 to 1.5 hours to spend several hundred dollars. In the winter I do not like to wear my coat inside as I get to warm. Each time that I have been approached in Walmart I was open carrying my Para Ordinance 1911 pistol on my hip in a leather holster. At no time was I touching or handling the weapon to cause concern for anyone.
I have been carrying a personal weapon for the last 20+ years. It is rare that I get stopped or questioned by anyone when I carry my weapon. I am well versed on Washington state and Federal gun laws however when I am approached by one of your managers I hear all manner of reasons as to why I am not allowed to carry my weapon in the manner that I do or in your store, none of which make any sense. I have found that Walmart managers of the stores here in the Tacoma / Seattle area have no standard as to the actual Walmart policy on weapons carried by customers in your stores. I have been asked to leave, escorted out by security, had law enforcement called, all because I was legally carrying a weapon on my person. Please read RCW 9.41.270. Current Washington gun laws can be read here: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?Cite=9.41
Is there an official policy that customers are not allowed to legally carry firearms in Walmart stores in accordance with the law of the state in which they reside? If so, could you please send me a copy of that policy? One that I can show store managers if the situation arises again. If there is an official policy or if you are allowing the managers of your stores to set policy in this area, could you please explain why you feel that law abiding citizens can not be trusted with the means of their own defense?
Although I recognize your right as a property owner to set rules for your customers, I would hope that you would not choose to limit the ability of your customers to defend themselves, especially while causing no trouble for your other customers or your business.
