3 Men With Assault Rifle, Handgun and Machete Went Shopping at Walmart, Police Say

(COLUMBUS, Miss.) — The states of Georgia and Mississippi have open-carry laws, meaning licensed gun owners can go around in public displaying their weapons. But businesses still have the right to prohibit weapons on their property.
Wrong, open carry in MISS. without a license is legal.
As to keeping guns out of stores there must be a sign posted. No sign no crime.
45-9-101(13)....Businesses still have the right to prohibit weapons on their property only if they post a sign that can be viewed from 10 feet away.
entity exercising control over the physical location of such place by the placing of a written notice clearly readable at a distance of not less than ten (10) feet that the "carrying of a pistol or revolver is prohibited."
From the article:
The Commercial Dispatch reports that a Walmart employee called police and then managers asked the men to leave once officers arrived.

Columbus Police Chief Fred Shelton says they left without incident. The Walmart store didn’t have a sign saying weapons are prohibited, but the chief says that doesn’t matter. He says anyone seeing someone carrying a weapon should call police and let officers determine if they pose a threat.
Looks like some Walmart managers need disciplined for violating company policy and a police chief needs fired.

No, it looks like two idiots need to consider the potential ripple effects of their actions.

Sure. Don't you know... If a woman is raped it's because of how she was dressed.

OC needs to be the predominant form of carry to keep this stupid Chief busy.

BTW - Tho I live in La. I would admit to anyone that Ms. is the free-est state.
