    Who Cares? If I am buying my gun legally why would I car if someone videotapes me doing it? (every time I OC in walmart I know that the LP guy is wearing out the joystick in the servialince room following me around)

    And who even buys guns from walmart anyways, all they have are 2nd rate shot guns around here.

    Big deal. They video tape every person that buys toilet paper too! (every cash register has a camera on it...).

    I would bet that places like Dicks Sporting Goods, Gander Mountain, and Bass Pro Shops do the same thing.

    Any FFL with a lick of sense has a top-rate video system that records everyone who enters the store, what they look at, and what they buy. And where it's legal, they should record audio as well, especially of the transaction.

    They need it more for protection from ATF straw buyer stings, than from theft.

    I bought a little .22 rifle from Walmart a few months ago. It is not like they are keeping this a secret, there was a sign right next to the gun case that said "Smile, all firearm purchases are video recorded." As for them selling second rate guns, I must have gotten lucky as my cheap .22 shoots 2" groups at 100 yards for under $100 I'm not complaining. Just to make this post relevant to the website, I was open carrying my G17 at the time of purchase.

    Most retail stores these days merge the cash register transactions to the video cameras... anything that shows up on the receipt also gets tagged as 'meta-data' on the video, and then it becomes searchable. Want video of everyone who bought Charmin toilet paper? No problem. Want video of everyone who bought Federal 9mm? No problem. Want video of every transaction using Visa card # 12345? No problem. No longer does a person have to review hours and hours of video to find what they are looking for.... its all just 'data'....

    Technology..... its not always a good thing.

    I do not know of a firearms dealer that does NOT tape their premises.

    If you had been paying attention nearly every retail store has several cameras in their store and most are taping.
    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

    Wal-Mart videos nearly every square inch of their stores and have several backups, including one at the home office. Old news? I think so.

    Whatever Wal Mart sells, you can find at a real gun shop for less. Also, they suck.

    I haven't seen a gun I wanted to buy at Wal Mart anyway.

    Even if I were inclined to buy one there (im not) Could care less. Video away. Nothing whatsoever to hide. Im not ramping up for a revolution or a bank heist.
    Privacy? We're talking about firearms here, not adult diapers.
    Man-up, give the camera the finger -with a smile-as you buy.

    Are you talking about the "real gun shops" who buy their ammo from Wal Mart because it's cheaper than they can get the same stuff in less-than-pallet-load quantities through wholesale channels?

    +1000! With the number of BATFE "discrepancies" they keep shutting FFL's down for it's come to the point that I think they can pull almost anything out of their 5th point of contact.

    However, this could be tossed back at them if you folks want to walk in with a video camera and record the other side of the transaction. Missouri is a 1 party State, so they won't be able to say much.

    Wear a Burqa

    Down Under, if you dont want to be identified you can wear a Burqu. I'm asked to take off my motor cycle helmet by security staff if I dont remove it before entering in many major stores and banks while people wearing a Burqa waltz in unhindered?
    When a criminal invades your home and has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.

    My Definition of Gun Control: The idea that dozens of people found dead in the Broadway Café, Tasmania, and many also seriously wounded, all while waiting for police, who were called to show up and protect them, is somehow morally superior to having several armed and therefore alive civilian's explaining to police how the attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    Just tell them your helmet is a part of your religion and then make them prove otherwise without giving them anymore information. If need be make up a religion similar to the spaghetti monster incident in the U.S. and claim discrimination.

    Ha! Too cool. Although I'm not sure that many people today know who Kenny Roberts is.

    Wal-Mart is 'private property', and can videotape whomever they want, wherever they wish (with the exception of the restrooms).

    You may not know this, but Wally World records you when you purchase ammunition, or a box of Kotex pads for your wife; you are recorded through the whole shopping experience of the store.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    When was the last time you bought ammo? Last time I checked, even the discount gun stores were charging more for re-manufactured ammo than WalMart charges for factory new.
