Well, when they catch you shoplifting they give you a choice; either sign this document agreeing to never step into one of our stores again or else we will call the police and have you arrested and charged.

Walmart has every right to set policy in their stores. And I have every right to boycott Walmart. That's the nice thing about having rights at all. Too bad that they're being eroded a little bit at a time. And it's also too bad that more and more businesses are jumping on the anti-gun bandwagon. And it's also too bad that the American public is falling in place like good boys and girls.

And yet stores don't have the right to refuse to bake a cake for someone who is LGBQTXYZ. Sounds kinda hypocritical doesn't it?

That is being compensated (sign and no charges)

The thread is about someone (granted an idiot) doing something entirely legal and the supposition that Wall Mart will "make" them sign with no leverage.


Again: how?

Fantastic point! Unfortunately, it'll go right over the heads of the Libs.

Thanks. My brother and brother-in-law were cops and would fall into your category and share your mindset. Unfortunately, it does seem that modern cops, in general, seem to be moving towards that "power trip" mentality. Maybe it's a false perception on my part but there does seem to be a shift. But I may be basing my conclusion on the fact that mainstream media in conjunction with social media only show the negative side of law enforcement and ignore the "good guys" in blue.

Cool

Why does everyone think you have god given right to do whatever you want when it comes to open carry
Walmart has the right to ban open carry in their stores. If you donít like it....donít shop there.
I have carried in Walmart many times....but concealed.
Pretty sure the guy in the video knew about the Walmart policy but decided to see if he could get away with open carry.
Boycott Walmart...?
Do you really think a handful of diehard open carry enthusiasts are gonna hurt Walmartís bank account?
Go shop somewhere else. That is your right
Pay more money for your purchases. Thatís your right too
The list is getting smaller of retail businesses that will allow open carry in their stores.
Sit home and order online. Wait for the delivery guy to bring your milk and eggs
Honestly....no one will miss you. For every one of you that boycott a store...a 1000 shoppers will replace you.
How many Walmart threads do we need?

Just one more good reason to stay out of Walmart.
My first wife was once a Walmart store manager. Like employees from everywhere...you follow company policy or you find yourself in the unemployment office
Store manager is a very good paying job.
Social Justice Store Manager? I believe they were doing their job. Should the store manager risk their job so that idiot can try to make a social statement?
I donít think so.....

You have been posting about how hard it has been for you to get a job. But you want to sit here and expect a Walmart store manager to risk losing their job by looking the other way when a customer is violating store policy
Just so some dumb ass can exercise some bull ****.

Right now there are too many shooting, too often, civilians are wringing their hands and screaming SOMEONE DO SOMETHING TO MAKE IT STOP! ANYTHING! And companies/feds are responding by punishing all gun carriers. Good and bad.

I ride with a lot of liberals - and know some on fb. They consensus is "Someone has to do something to make it stop or they will come for me next". They don't care what rights are lost or how this is done, and that is very dangerous.

I confronted one outright and said "You want to ban all guns for civilians". She said no she didn't but SOMEONE HAD TO DO SOMETHING TO MAKE IT STOP. There was no reasoning with her.

These people are running on fear, and I believe the elites are feeding that with a steady diet of shootings.

So expect more of this.
I am pretty sure they are exactly the same rights you always had in this instance. Which is Wallmart can decide who it lets in to its store.

The only thing I am suprised about is that it isn't treated as discrimination.

If I got kicked out because of some sort of religious paraphernalia I am pretty sure they would get in a lot of trouble.

It is interesting you can't take it down that route.

And for example.

Ummm ... that's sorta what we've been saying. They can do whatever they want including getting out of the gun industry altogether. They have every right to jump on the anti-gun bandwagon. They have every right to ban gun carriers for life. They have every right to villainize their pro-gun customers.

And pro-gunners have every right to shop elsewhere. Clearly ... the dude they banned for life will have to shop somewhere else.

As for boycotts? Ask Nike and Gillette how much money they recently lost in sales. Boycotts may not shut them down but they do hurt the bottom line. Plus -- the money NOT spent at the Commie companies can go towards smaller, ma & pa companies. Double win!

And nobody twisted your arm. If you think there are too many Walmart threads ... stick to the ONE you like the best.

If you're not able to see the bigger picture and the direction ALL companies are going then I guess there's not much can say or do for you. If you're happy getting corralled and pushed into corporate "safe zones" then continue to wear your "obedient" cap and pretend that your "rights" are completely safe. I, for one, will continue to carry anywhere I believe my safety may be at risk. And these days ... that's just about everywhere.

If I was a Walmart manager, I would likely approach the customer and let him know the new policy and ask that he either leave and conceal his gun or not wear it at all. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't ban him for life and call an army of cops to surround him.

I carry concealed in every one of my customer's locations and they don't have a clue!

High Impact Flix is going to test Walmart. He's fiercely pro-gun and open carries in Oklahoma all the time. Here's how it went:

They do bag searches at work. The police force are tough men who can handle anything but touching a wrapped, unused, tampon. That gets them utterly freaked.

I'm a woman, I'm going to need it.

To my knowledge they have never found contraband on one of these searches. But we endure them because it's a federal building. They have a big sign on the gate "Kiss your fourth amendment rights goodbye" (the gist of it).

If I brought my stun gun we would likely be terminated on the spot and charges filed.

What a crock of CRAP!
Wm policy was to be non-confrontational (in other words NOT doing what this GM did, she in fact violated policy and will likely be fired for those actions in Lexington Ky.) The police made it a point no laws were broken only WM policy (yet 7 showed up OC no less - oh the irony there)

NO one was "losing a cushy job" for NOT over-reacting to a legal in Ky act, protected by the state Constitution no less....... there is NO mention of the OC being asked to leave or cover or remove the weapon.........stupid act from a GM that wanted to USE the new policy to make a political point (not her job) This could have (and should have) been handled MUCH better, the GM messed up and I'll be surprised if jobs are not lost, the OC was treated like a criminal when he was 100% legal and doing nothing but shopping with a sidearm (not a long gun which WAS why they requested no OC)

This is a joke and your above quoted opinions do not change that.

More "Koolaid"- none for me btw
