Thread: Subway @ Wal-mart
Well I went to Wal-mart in West DePere tonight to grab dinner at the Subway inside. Now I know Wally World is carry friendly, but I did not know this Subway was not ... well kinds not. I had my gun on my hip and my jacket over it. The sign on the glass as you walked into Subway had a gun in a ghost buster with the words "No concealed weapons allowed in this establishment".
I took off my coat and went in with my family. I was then open carrying and had no issues. Not a single person said anything or looked at me funny. So here is my question ... are they 2A friendly or not? If I had on my belly band I could not have entered.
I haven't heard of any issues with Subway. Not sure they can really enforce their policy if they are inside a Walmart because they don't have a separate entrance.

It's a dumb sign, it makes no sense to focus on the concealed part.... of "weapon" in my mind.

My favorite coffee shop has a "no concealed guns, bazookas, grenade launchers, or flamethrowers" sign on one door. He's fine with OC. Sounds like that Subway manager is the same way.

Having worked at Walmart I can say that Subway pays for the space to use. They are pretty much free to do what they want. They are not under the control of or bound by Walmart in any way.
That being said, I've never seen a Subway posted here in VA. I think they are all franchises.

It is probably time to send the management the message that "No Guns = No Money". It makes no sense to allow open carry and deny concealed carry, especially given the liability protection afforded by AB-35 (SB-93 as amended). Just my thought - others may feel differently.

For me concealed means ..Hidden ... if they can't see it, it's not happening.
