    Supermarkets Allow Concealed Carry, Copps, Woodman's, and Festival Foods. WBAY ABC2

    "We decided let's follow the law. That's what the State says, it's what people wanted, let's do that," Festival director of public relations Nick Arlt said.

    That opinion is not universal.

    "I don't understand if you have to go to the grocery store, why do you need a gun?" Holly Seidl said.

    Seidl said despite the details surrounding the Milwaukee shooting, she feels all stores should have signs banning concealed weapons.

    "Every time you go to a store there's kids everywhere," she said, "and what if perhaps a kid sees a gun and says, 'Oooh, why does that person have a gun?"

    Super Targets are also not posted. (I think that's corporate policy, the ones I have been in sure aren't, I look carefully every time I go.)

    I have never seen a sign at PickNSave either. I have carried there openly since day 1 and never had a problem. At first my wife was scared that the employees she knew might get upset but she was surprised that nobody cared about it. Sentry doesn't post either as far as I have seen. Come to think of it I think the shorter list would be of grocery stores that prohibit it.

    Looks like some good places to spread the wealth.

    I think Holly Seidl is being truthful when she says, "I don't understand." She probably never will, unless she has an Aldi's experience.

    Wow. My kids would say: "Why doesn't that person have a gun? They must not love their children".

    May I see your First, Fourth And Thirteenth Amendment Permits, please?

    I was in the area today and checked it out. I didn't see any signs. Guess they wised up!

    What. An. Idiot.
    The Aldi store had a sign.
    Criminals ignore signs just as they ignore laws they don't like. (Things like "don't murder", "don't rob", "don't shoot people"...)
    But she wants to try it again.
    Isn't that one definition of insanity? Doing the same thing & expecting a different result?
    Or maybe they need a bigger sign, one that's on the exterior door, impossible to miss.

    "Every time you go to a store there's kids everywhere," she said, "and what if perhaps a kid sees a gun and says, 'Oooh, why does that person have a gun?"
    Um, maybe you encourage the kid to ask the person with the pistol?
    Maybe you explain to the kid that that person is exercising a civil right, just like wearing a religious symbol?
    Maybe you explain that that person values her life, & (if with family) the lives of her family?

    WalMart and Piggly Wiggly don't have signs either. And I almost never see kids running around. Maybe she doesn't shop at midnight. I'd guess she's afraid to be out at that time of night.

    The WBAY page is no longer there.
