Sorry I'm going to Target (which by the way has said nothing about carry in their stores AFAIK).
Actually- Target was the first to request "no guns" [oc or cc] by the ceo, back when all the oc protesting was going on! That's also about the time the announced that you could use the restroom of the gender you "identified" with, regardless of anatomy. :mad5

target is actually worse than wm.
Thanks for the info. Since it’s been 5 years and they haven’t posted any signs I’ll just keep CCing there and at WalMart and Starbucks :totap:
That is what I think also. Just conceal carry in these places. The sheeple can feel like it is somehow safe and you can still defend yourself and loved ones. Hopefully some of these places don't let their anti open carry agenda spill over to concealed carry.

Re: I'm Ashamed.

I just don't get it. What is making these otherwise intelligent people think that a person intent on doing harm with a firearm is going to stay away because of the stores policy of forbidding guns?

I haven't spent a dime at Walmart since their latest anti gun statements.

I mean, I've been in Afghanistan this whole time but that's beside the point :biggrinjester:
Holy cow! Afghanistan??? Glad you made it back safe. Do you get news there or is it all filtered?
I'm still over here :cool: (I'm a military contractor, not actually in the military). I have a few sites blocked due to where our internet comes from but otherwise nothing is filtered or censored, so I stay up to date.

Apparently somebody on my other internet access was naughty because it shows I'm permabanned here ;-)
Well stay safe just the same. Interesting occupation. Sometimes I regret not seeing more of the world.

I always tell people that Walmart could not have put mom and pop shops out of business without people shopping there instead of the mom and pop businesses. Walmart didn't do it, we all did!
Yep... that is what I was saying too.

SNIP....... We have all been duped by the lure of buying cheap products. We should have denied them business 30 years ago. It is too late now. They own us all.

I know that in prior topics it was said that we have effectively been given oral notice about OC at Walmart. However, nothing was stated about Sams Club. I went to the local ((to me) Samss yesterday, saw no signs so I OC’d and not a word was said to me about it
Interesting. It makes me wonder if Walmart's have yet to make it official in their Walmart stores. Maybe the crap people have caught so far was more of a managerial decision at the local level.

Until I start seeing a bevy of 30.06 signs going up, I'm going to continue my usual practice of OC where legal. These businesses have the same right to conduct their business as they see fit just as we do to exercise our mode of CHL carry where legal.
I don't think their right to forbid open carry was in question on this thread. Obviously, we all have the right to refuse to do business, or not do business, with places for any reason we see fit. Personally, I don't see a whole lot of other options considering most grocery stores are now saying no open carry. For the record, I never open carried anyway but again see that as everyone's right to choose.

Re: I'm Ashamed.

We are all stuck with them. Around here, even in big old Plano with all the people, we have very limited grocery store options. All of which are anti 2nd amendment to some extent. I am not sure how much of it is the beliefs of the BOD for these places and how much is just posturing to appease the political climate at the moment. Unfortunately the reality is that we gun owners are on our heels right now. It has been a long time since I remember having such bad press from the anti crowd pounding on us. Mass shootings are making it very difficult.

We have to eat and the pickings are getting slim.
This is where I am... We live in a small town so options for some things apart from walmart don't exist... So we'll only buy what we have to there- I'm not going to penalize my family for their stance. We'll spend 2-3k less per year there now... and that will have to be enough.
The really sad part is that walmart created this situation by running all the mom and pop small retailers out of business with predatory pricing. First they put you in this position. Now you are stuck with them no matter how they want to do business. They pack their stores with goods imported from countries that use cheap labor, thus shifting jobs out of America in addition to running mom and pop out of business. I can think of many reasons to not shop at walmart. Coming out against the 2nd amendment is just one of them. We have all been duped by the lure of buying cheap products. We should have denied them business 30 years ago. It is too late now. They own us all.

Yesterday my wife needed baby stuff and we were right by ( WALMART ).

Noooo, I said but wifey was insistent on going, I explained there's a baby boutique about 60 miles away we could go to instead but she just laughed, most people would to I guess?

I stayed in the Vehicle and wouldn't go in at least but my hard earned money was wasted at a 2a, Gun, Freedom Hating Establishment.

Please forgive me, lol. Has anyone else spent money there or am I the only idiot so far?
Yep. You are it. Shame on you. Turn in your man card.
