    Walmart's corporate policy is to follow local laws. So if it's legal to openly carry where the walmart is, then it's ok in their store. You should follow up with management.

    Who asked you to leave? Was it a door greeter, an hourly employee, a member of loss prevention or management?

    Only a member of management has the authority to throw you out of a walmart--no other walmart employee has the ability, or the authority, not even their loss prevention employees--at least AFAIK.

    I hope you follow up with the store manager, regional manager, and Bentonville. Whomever you spoke with was misinformed about Wal Mart policies.

    Somewhere I've seen thephoneand e-mail of corporate Wal Mart that puts a stop to the anti CCW and OC stupidity their stores feel compelled to do from time to time. I will look and see if I can find anything. I've read corporate is very receptive and sensitive to rogue stupidity at their stores that goes against laws in the state the store is in. This surprises me a lot.

    I have a close relative who works at Walmart and has for 6 years now. He claims that it is Walmart corporatepolicy to abide by state and local gun laws.

    I have seen this same policy stated by others who claim to have asked Walmart corporate for clarification.

    I'm not saying this because I know for a fact, but I think I remember reading about similar adventures at Walmart and other stores, even stores that sell guns. What usually happens if it is traced to the source is that the store has a policy that employees cannot carry, concealed or open. Then an employee only remembers that the company he works for thinks guns in the store are bad. And they act on their confused idea of company policy. As long as it doesn't get straightened out it will continue.
