I really don't go too often though. And I have spoken to the security guard before, so maybe it won't be so bad. On the other hand, I think I now have a very good reason to carry there. I know some folks at Hickory PD. I'll see if I can find anything out about it.Just thought you guys would like to see this as it was not in the paper. More to come later.
I hope this don't hurt the ones of us that carry either open or concealed as we already have enough opposition as it is.
look out chiefjason LOL this is your place of OC.
HICKORY, N.C. -- One person is recovering after being shot at a Walmart in Hickory.
Police say someone opened fire in the parking lot of the Walmart on Highway 70 this morning.
An innocent bystander was shot in the leg. She's expected to be ok. Police arrested the suspect.
There have been lots of robberies and assaults there at night before. It was probably a matter of time till a shooting happened. Hickory PD keeps a tight lid on these things. I tend to hear WAY more than what is let on about these things.
Going for my CCP class Sat, so I'll soon have more options as well. I'll probably be CC'ing 100% around the wife and kids. I don't want the gov interfering with my right to bear arms, but the wife, that's another story. Marital stability comes first.
