I drive a Taxi in a small, VERY dangerous town here...Gaffney. It was early in the morning, at the end of my shift, and I was going into Wal Mart to make my money drop. It was raining and windy. You know how the entrances to these stores are...doory opens, and it almost blows you off your feet, LOL.
As I enteredhe store, the wind from inside caught my overshirt ( wear a pocketed T-shirt with a button up to conceal the Colt 45 Single Action I carry). Anyway, the weapon was FULLY visible for several seconds while I fought to get my shirt tails back under control. The greeter takes one look and stops me, says "You can't bring THAT in here!"
"Why" I ask.
"It's against Wal Mart Policy" She replyed.
I informed here that it was State Law that such a policy be conspicuously posted on all entrances, and it wasn't.
She looked and found it wasn't posted, then asked why would I need a gun in Gaffney. I replied that there were three reasons.
#1. I drive a Taxi.
#2. Gaffney has a higher violent crime rate per capita than any other area in our state, which has one of the highest in the Nation. And...
#3. I was shot in the head in 1994, and have every intention of being able top shoot back next time.
