Nationwide Ban For Open Carry At Walmart…

Lexington man permanently banned from Walmart for open carry.

 

Concealed carry is still accepted at Walmart nationwide.

 


 

Walmart is not changing its policy on customers carrying concealed guns with permits.

 

If someone opts to openly carry a gun into one of its stores, it’s up to the store manager’s discretion as to how to react. In states like Alaska or Wyoming, where “open-carry” is more common, the manager might pull the customer aside and ask him or her to leave the gun in their vehicle the next time, the spokesperson said. But the reaction might be stronger “if it’s a situation where it’s causing alarm,” he said.

BOYCOTT COMMUNIST WALMART FOR MAKING SHOPPERS “FISH IN A BARREL FOR MASS SHOOTERS!!!!”

I stopped going to Walmart when that news broke. Quite frankly, I don’t need Walmart.

Where else do people go, especially in rural areas. The government has let Walmart run everybody else out of business! Amazon is farther left than Walmart is. If you live in larger communities there are other options but they are more expensive, generally. It’s the governments fault for letting companies become near monopolies with little or no competition. It’s the same with google, apple, and facebook, among others.

Unfortunately many Americans have been very slow to grasp what has taken place and how it all works and why. None of it is complicated, but many are stuck in the many illusions created for them to mind eff them and control them !

Simple answer is that smart phones are part of the matrix in case you have not figured it out yet ? They are a direct line to peoples brains and were deliberately created for the same purpose PRAVDA/MSM was created 20 years ago. Let it sink in and you will realize all of it is a giant control mechanism and nothing less.

I just laugh at idiots that think they can’t get along without a smart phone. I have the cheapest bare bones phone i can find. All i need it for is texting and calling. I don’t need notifications going off constantly. Nothing is more aggravating than trying to have a conversation with someone and their phone keeps buzzing, and beeping. It’s rude as hell for one thing, and makes it near impossible to have a conversation.
People have become like trained rats, only with less brain power.

Apple kicked Infowars off their Podcast index along with YouTube, Facebook, etc. Apple News app is only going to deliver MSM. Apple kicked the Infowars App off the App Store it’s only available on Google Play store. Apple is extremely liberal as a company and most their employees. Any Conservatives working at Apple keep their mouths shut and avoid discussing politics. I am sure they are not pleased with the China trade war but they have to be some kind of special idiots to not have a plan if things go south to move manufacturing operations. They have enough cold hard cash to do it if they need to. It’s just something that will take time. I bet the those Trump / Tim Cook meetings were fun for Trump.

Honestly??? You really don’t know???

Apple used to stifle creativity by not allowing people to jailbreak their phones, and specifically designed their phone OS – iOS – to un-jailbreak any phone previously jailbroken upon OS upgrade.

It was their way or the highway.

And when you look at their computers you see the same thing. Or at least you did when they started; I put them on ignore a long time ago when it comes to their desktops and laptops.

The same pigeonholing of their customers who want to upgrade hardware such as data storage drives. I can buy any PC and upgrade the hard drive to a larger one without buying it from the manufacturer if/when I run out of space. That was not an option with Apple’s computers for quite a few models and quite a few years. Don’t get me wrong; an upgrade was PHYSICALLY possible. But it would invalidate the warranty of the entire machine if you decided to use “non-standard” parts. (Non-standard is their euphemism for “not approved by Apple.)

Don’t know if it’s still true or not, as like I said, I quit keeping up with them and what they do long ago.

But that’s the WHY of it.

Since you asked….

I live in a rural area and there are still local options to the big-box stores. Our little main street hardware store is still open, and we also have small regional chains like Aubuchon and others that are part of Trustworthy and True Value. Various “dollar” stores and Tractor Supply have been popping up in recent years…it just means mapping them out and planning the shopping trip. I’m doing that now – going to places I’ve been driving by for years. I’ll continue shopping with my EDC. I just won’t be shopping Walmart.

No, this means you aren’t free to buy, sell, bank, to work, or associate, where you want within America. You are ceding YOUR FREEDOM to the political left, as they prefer.

You can’t boycott all of America, and this “movement” to “deplatform” conservative Americans from ALL walks of life, is just hitting mainstream.

This leftist “red line” is not about his gun. It’s about who he is, and who he represents.

Sam Walton must be rolling in his grave to see what the stores carrying his name, have become. Any manager who banned a man for carrying a handgun back in his Arkansas stores would never work for him again – guaranteed.

Walmart made the choice to infringe on legal, law abiding, tax paying US citizen’s rights; we citizens make the choice not to spend another penny in a Walmart. Pretty simple, actually. Maybe I/we have to drive a bit further, but there is no one “dictating” who I can, or cannot spend my money with. Don’t be fooled.

US citizens ALWAYS have a choice…for now. The only question is – How much ‘convenience’ are you willing to cede? As few as 20 years ago small rural communities had never heard of Walmart. Yet, somehow, everyone got along just fine. What changed? Complacency, laziness, comfort. That’s what changed.

Where I live it’s Walmart or Target.

And I haven’t set foot in Target except to price-check and compare them to Walmart’s pricing for informational purposes – to compare so I can tell others how badly they’re getting ripped off shopping at the store that lets biological men into women’s restrooms!

So I guess I’ll be sitting this one out.

And when it comes to pricing, boy is the difference staggering.

There’s this one glass measuring bowl that is identical in Target and Walmart except for the lid color. In Walmart the bowl and lid set is $7.97. In Target the same exact bowl – except for the red lid that matches the Target bullseye – is $19.97. Yes, TWENTY DOLLARS!

Been winning people over to leaving Target ever since I first saw that one!

I remember traveling the U.S. during summer breaks when I was a child in the 60’s and 70’s. It was absolutely fascinating to see and experience how completely different every state and community was with their own unique kinds of businesses. It was like traveling to another country in each state/region. Nowadays, one can’t go anywhere that’s much different from where one lives. Even travelling to different countries brings one much of the same. The globalist multinational companies are cookie-cutterizing and homogenizing EVERYTHING. Not much left to do but submit to their will and just work for them and their parasitic government class until one gets sick and dies.

@beto if that’s how you want to go…then be it so. However there are in life some hills to die on and plant that flag. Which flag do you love more?

Beto, the English/German one

@Good.. guess I should explain my comment: The first portion was a lament – not uncommon for old folks who are saddened by the “progress” and change from the way it “used to be.” The last sentence was sarcasm. As for which hill to plant my flag, I served my country as a U.S. Marine and was poisoned with toxic water for 3 years at Camp Lejeune (search toxic superfund Camp Lejeune and read about the cover-up and faithlessness of command administrators toward us subordinates – many of whom and/or their family members have died due to the exposure). I guess another hill that I wasn’t able to plant my flag on is the one that, for the past many decades, saw my wages and standard of living stagnate or even decrease due to the powers that be having established ways to ensure cheaper labor through law and illegal immigration. I tried to work around all that, but I failed to do much more than get by. God knows I tried. I guess I’m not sure what you mean when you ask which flag do I love more and which hill will I die on. I love my country even with its many flaws. But even if it comes down to outright civil war, it’s already too late. We’ve already lost our Republic. The school systems are busy putting the last nails in this once great coffin.

Tell me about it.
Few years ago I wanted to earn some extra skrilla and thought I’d donate plasma. During the screening process they asked me if I lived in any if these countries during this time period. I said I had done 2 years in Frankfurt during my Army stint.
Apparently during that time the Army was getting their mess hall meat from British farms and because it was during the whole ‘mad cow’ period I MAY have been exposed and since it can take years for symptoms to materialize I am prohibited, by federal law, to donate plasma.
First I ever heard of it. Never have received anything from the Army about it.
So I got that going for me…..which is nice.

It is utter stupidity for Wal-Mart to take this stand.
They think we Americans have no principles, and no loyalty to our liberty.

They are about to learn an expensive lesson.

The right of the citizen to keep and to bear arms shall not be infringed.

The government has zero authority to demand we get their permission
to keep and to carry whatever weapon we choose to defend ourselves and others.

If your convenience is more valuable than your liberty
then go ahead and shop at walmart.
It is to your own self destruction that you do it.
If Wal-Mart is your master, and you can’t live without
the tyranny they are pushing on you, then be their slave.

I live in one of those rural areas. I’m 35 mi from the closest town. For grocery shopping there are 4 stores; Walmart and Albertsons are 2 of them. I do a lot of my shopping at one of the the other two anyway. I started cutting way back on Walmart about a year ago.
But, your point is very valid.

JBrickley

Walmarts selection of firearms has been terrible for several years. The stores that do carry them have a very tiny selection of very low cost arms. Now they are ceasing to sell ammunition and probably going to eliminate firearms altogether. Dicks Sporting goods did as well but in their case it really hurt them on the bottom line. So now you have to go to a mom & pop firearms store or an outfitter such as Cabela’s / Pro Bass Shops. You can still order online and pickup your firearm from an authorized distributor. The good ole boys out in the sticks are not relying on Walmart, not by a long shot; pun intended.

The American, average person, is as dumb as a box of dog shit. How did all these EVIL businesses get where they are today? By people willingly shopping at these shit holes and willingly signing up to the spy organization farcecrook. People are what made these businesses what they are today. People are stupid and gullible.
I’m about sick of listening to my conservative friends complain about this crap then they just keep right on using trash like farcecrook. There is no reason for them to do so , but they use it then cry about how unfair they are.
If ALL the so called conservatives would just stop using this garbage, they would be crippled,BAD.But people are just too STUPID.
If anybody here, still shops at a shit hole like wal mart, and still uses facebook, then shut the hell up, you’re the problem. Boycott that garbage.
I don’t shop at wally world and haven’t for 12 years. We quit watching broadcast tv 22 years ago, because it’s just brain rotting crap. I’ve never needed facebook, instagram, or twitter for any reason and i don’t have any problems communicating with anyone i need to communicate with.
If you use any of that crap, you’re the problem, so quit complaining.

“I stopped going to Walmart when that news broke. Quite frankly, I don’t need Walmart.”

Do you need grocery stores? Do you need utilities? How about banks and credit unions? A gas station? If the left can legitimately create “gates” for you to cross, which then dispossesses you from America, where will you buy, sell, bank, get your power or your fuel from then?

This isn’t about the gun that man was carrying. This is about who he is as an American. They’ve just figured out another way to put him in his place. “America” is a big club, and he’s not in it.

Neither are you. So, go ahead an self-segregate. The Marxist Democrat’s appreciate your “community service”.

You do not need a permit ie. permission to conceal carry either the 2nd Amendment clearly states that.

terry zelk
terry zelk

Law enforcement doesn’t give a shit about the constitution. According to the 2nd amendment, all laws for background checks and every other infringement of our rights having to do with firearms, is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
You should be able to buy and possess a gun ANYWHERE, criminals do and they don’t care about those no firearms signs.
The idiot cops in the video are part of the problem. He was practically blaming this guy for mass shootings. There would be no mass shootings if nearly everyone had a piece on their hip.

Shop online.
Say Amazon is bad if you want to,
But they give me the option to support judicial watch with my purchases.
Does Wal-Mart do that?
And believe me it adds up, and judicial watch appreciates it,
And they put it to good use.
Wal-Mart buys from china, but says it loves america,
then becomes a domestic enemy, (really it always was)
by seeking to abolish our Bill of Rights!
That company has left our heartland
And joined the international group of global elites.
First amendment Right to disassociate from them.
Exercise it.

Every Wal-Mart store sells $50,000 worth of goods.

If we shop somewhere else.

to be more American.
If they don’t, other stores will come.
Because supply and demand is the American way.
It is capitalism.
Demand they change their policy, or get your supplies anywhere else.

There’s the proof in the pudding. There should have been more people with a piece on their hip. The answer to ending these shootings is encourage more people to buy and carry guns. Open carry should be allowed everywhere. If someone is unhinged and wants to shoot up some place and they get there and everyone there has a gun, the shooter won’t last too long. Actually, even an unhinged nut would be discouraged if he sees guns everywhere. These people may be nuts, nut they are sane enough to commit these acts where they know nobody will shoot back.

Democrat’s are the original “Jim Crow” boys. This is a systematic leftist Democrat effort to “deplatform” all American conservatives from American life. It’s not just the online stuff. They have announced intentions, wherever they have power and control, to prevent you and I from banking, from working, from buying, or selling, within the American marketplace. They create a straw argument, a “gate” for you to walk through, that makes you either a criminal, or a dispossessed person within America. This is intentional. That’s what happened here. Since the US Constitution grants a civil right to possess and carry a firearm, this is an infringement of this man’s civil rights.

Where is the Trump/Barr US Justice Department? This is a violation of his civil rights, but one that the leftist Justice Department and their FBI thugs approve of. Hope that they don’t take animus with Christians, or maybe CFP readers, because the next thing ya know, churches will be burning across the land, while the FBI brings their black balaclavas and white marshmallows to the events, while Kane’s servers will take mysterious hits in the middle of the night.

In America today, all “civil rights” aren’t equal. Some people are “more equal” than others.

i’ve already dumped target and now walmart is on the edge. pretty soon i’ll have to be paying more or shop at dollar tree, which i’m not thrilled with either because the service is iffy most of the time, the shelves are usually half empty and the variety is limited. i know walmart sells mostly junk but if you are particular in your shopping habits and not too upset with lowlife service the prices are unbeatable. think about in flordia where all the retired folks live. their budgets depend on walmart by the millions. what a mess our country has become. can’t protect yourself or your loved ones, can’t speak up or out, can’t live your life without beta males and feminists telling you how to think, walk, sit and speak.

Americans have always held back about different things in the past. I believe when the time comes, the conservatives will step up to the plate and do the right thing about so many issues. The first will be to reelect the president. Create sensible gun control which is already in place across the country. Get the immigration problem under control. Be realistic concerning energy measures. Forget the pie in the sky proposals by the dems. They will promise you anything just to get elected. That’s what all dictators do. “Vote with your mind, not your heart”….. That is my new Republican reelection slogan…Lol..

My father has a Trump bumper sticker on his truck. My prayer is that he won’t find himself at the wrong place at the wrong time and be beaten or killed. We all will continue to do what we can to salvage this once great beacon of freedom according to our individual and group capabilities. But lets get real.

If we cower, yes.
If we stand up boldly, and gently, with our red maga hats, and US flags.
Stop being quiet because that’s exactly what they want.
But do all in kindness.
Knowing the left is deceived.
They hate us because they don’t know us.
Offer them a beer, or a brownie.
And a song.
God bless America perhaps.

Feminism is a tool of marxism.
As is sexual promiscuity.
And open borders.
We are currently in the most woken time in my lifetime.
It is not the time to disassociate.
It is time to stand and fight in any way you can think of.
Make your voice heard.
All my adult life I was told to be quiet.
But they are not quiet.
They have a whole media format to preach their demand to be quiet.
No red hats, no crosses, no prayers, etc.
Do the opposite of what they demand.
Look at Hong Kong, if we don’t stand up now,
That’s where we will end up.
And our cops have surplus military equipment to use on us.

Next to impossible to enforce until they roll out facial data and biometric black lists, and yes, they are working on it. Get banned from walmart and added to the subscription list of “bad” consumers, get instantly banned from all other chains. That and don’t use a card.

I love shopping at my local Walmart. Decent employees, good prices, and decent selection.

Because they are banning this law abiding citizen from their stores, I will be cancelling my online account. I will also send a written letter to Walmart corporate offices that I am never shopping at their stores again.

The absolute insanity of that police officer’s statement. Referring to mass shootings and that he shouldn’t be carrying a gun.

THE MASS SHOOTINGS ARE THE EXACT REASON TO OPEN CARRY WHEN YOU ARE A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN!

Sad.
My wife just discovered and tried for the first time YESTERDAY that program Walmart has where you order online and employees shop for you and all you have to do is show up, pay, and load up the car. She loved it. Saved her 45 minutes in her daily routine.
Well, today she dropped that service AND Walmart, altogether, like a hot potato.
Adios, Walmart.
If a Brother can get banned for abiding by the law, we join with him in utter disappointment with Walmart. He’ll find a solution. And if he and his family can figure out another way, so can we.

the cop that said “do you know what’s going on in the country’ is an ass. unfortunately some cops are just out and out control freak idiots. the guy wan’t doing anything wrong…
I was at a Georgia hotel once and had a disagreement with desk clerk over our room (non smoking room that some had smoked in) and just wanted another room. she would not give me one. I asked to call her manager, who was at home, and even she said we couldn’t have another room. I said I wanted to talk to her personally and she refused, telling the clerk to call the police. THREE cars showed up, with FIVE cops! one asked me to put my hands behind my back and then patted me down. they told me that I couldn’t stay there and that I needed to leave the premises immediately It was all on camera…I never threatened any one, never shouted. not once. nothing. I have never been arrested… or even threatened with arrest until that point. all over a disagreement about a hotel room. I support the police, but many times they get hard ons when they are in group and the “perp” is not an actual threat. it was Wellesly Inn in Dalton Georgia, which is otherwise a nice chain. I’ve never stayed at any of their hotels after this incident. I had the last laugh though…when we passed by a few years later, they were out of business.

DA response from cop “do you realize what you’ve done here tonight?” 7 officers to respond to a law abiding citizen. Legal outside their door ban for life inside with no personal protection.

Walmart policy virtually assures another massacre. A bad guy with a gun knows that there will not be a good guy with a gun and will have free reign until police get on scene.
A ban from Walmart’s nationwide is disturbing and outrageous. Walmart will one day realize their grievous error

It is surprising though that they haven’t gone the way of Target in the way of Transgender Bathrooms. I say at this point why stop here. Just go ahead and ban white conservative Americans…just only let illegals and blacks shop in their stores. Let them have the most raucous block party of their lives…begging for mercy. Americans need to abandon WalMart in droves…this is the stand to take!

If we don’t end this abject nuttery they will be in our doorstep. I don’t need to see the whites of their eyes to know their intentions. The media has damn made sure of that…

On March 11, 2019, Governor Matt Bevin signed a bill into law (effective June 27, 2019) that allows residents and nonresidents who are 21 years old or older who are otherwise able to lawfully possess a firearm, to carry concealed firearms (or any other deadly weapon) without a permit. Open carry without a permit for both residents and nonresidents 18 years old or older was already legal as guaranteed by the State Constitution.

I just had to explain, calmly, that WalMart is only doing this because some actuarial did some math and determined that the amount of money they made selling ammo was less than the amount of a possible settlement if Walmart were mentioned in a lawsuit. The person said “i was nuts”/ I tried calmly (again) to explain that in 2019, lawyers sue EVERYONE to see what sticks for a settlement.

Now, If i were that guy with the gun, with seven cops, I’d just give them my cart an leave. Ten I would go to my lawyer and file a lawsuit concerning my Constitutional rights were violated by Walmart AND the police force. I’m not even sure that the LEO gave a lawful order to follow! (be polite anyway)

Way I see it, as an American Citizen, it is your DUTY to NOT follow a law that does not comply with the Constitution or the bill of Rights. The reveres isn’t true..if it complies with the Constitution and the bill of Rights, you are duty bound to follow said rule.

Isn’t that what they taught us in history and civics all those years ago?

I wrote off WalMart on most stuff long ago. Being in a postage stamp sized town, there are very few other places to shop, because the next town, for 50 miles is just like this one. I do have a very few other options for most groceries, but if I need a spool of thread, the next closest non Walmart place is at least 50 miles! I’m “elderly” by some people’s definition, and have experienced a severe injury that prevents driving any distance. I will still have to go there until some enterprising people begin bringing back Mom & Pop stores. But I also have a CC and a Sig, that will now accompany me, whereas before, I felt no need.

As a CC permit holder, and someone who goes no where without a pistol: people who open carry, as civilians, are foolish. 9 times out of 10 I could slap the carrier over the head, with his own weapon, before he /she knows what happened. Most use stupid, cheap holsters. Most open carry to “look” tough, but don’t know the first thing about weapons security.

Pull your damned shirt over your weapon!

Exactly. And the number of people on here that don’t understand private property rights (Walmart can make any policy they want…..your option is to not shop there) is astounding. We fought a war in 1861-65 basically over property rights and most people STILL don’t get it.

Actually, they can. Your rights end the moment they infringe upon another’s. It’s their store, thereby, their rules. Just like in your home you can forbid guests from wearing shoes. You do not have to go there.

Well folks, we were warned about Wally-World and cheap Chinese crap from the various cheapo-marts way back in the 1970s.
We were warned that some day these big boxes would consume every smaller business and eventually each other till only one was standing. We were warned that we’d eventually lose our jobs to cheap offshore labor. We were warned that eventually we’d have no choice. Well, here we are. We’ve got our garages packed full of cheap crap no one will ever use. Many of us have to rent storage to house all the useless cheap crap no one will ever use. Now places like Walmart and Amazon tell us how to live our lives because it’s exactly the future we knew was coming and begged for it anyway.

The mouthy cop admits that no crime was committed but that “it wasn’t a good idea”????????????? So 7 officers show because walmart doesn’t want the business of 2nd amendment rights folk. 7 Officers because they think the guy had what they consider a bad idea. Minority report???? Red flag????
Walmart, Albertsons, Kroger join Whataburger, Chipotle, Waffle House, Panera Bread, Chuck E Cheese, Jack in the Box, Sonic, Whole Foods, Safeway, Buffalo Wildwings, Outback, Costco,Chili’s, Domino’s, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Target and Hooters! and that list goes on and on. Many of these companies started banning guns a few years back during the Ozero Regime.
Any criminal can do what I just did and do a quick search to see where Americans are being denied their 2nd amendment rights to open or concealed carry and choose that business for mayhem.

Walmart can pull this stunt because they have driven the competition out of business. What are your options Amazon (Awful), Target (Worse than Walmart IMO). I am going to start shifting my allegiance to I guess my local grocer. Amazon is the true local threat anymore, I can count a half dozen local small businesses that have closed due to Amazon, it’s just a realization of Capitalism and true convenience (Push Button, get banana). I’m not a millennial I don’t have instant gratification issues so I can adjust but for kids who can’t even drag their ass to go buy a cheeseburger (DoorDash) these days the convenience factor will prevail so buckle up to SOFT.
