Well see how that works out for them here.

I would say they have just cut their corporate throat in quite a few states.

Personally they have just lost a queen bed purchase, two ladder stand purchases , several boat and car supply purchases by me for this week alone.

What about MY concerns? Do they go out the window because I'm exercising a Constitutionally protected right?

They already are crawdadding on the no OC policy, saying it will be dependent on location and that not all OC customers will be asked to leave.

We shall see.

Well I carried in the local wal-mart today.

No one said a thing.

Maybe they well have some close out prices on some ammo.

Last time they did I brought shotgun ammo for 3 dollars a box.

Heck I can not reload it for that price any more.

I shall await the appropriate “conspicuous” signage on their entrances as prescribed by NC statutes, remembering of course they “conspicuous” signage doesn't carry any weight of law...

One hopes this perverse mentality doesn't evade Sam’s.

Kroger is following in Walmart's footsteps:

"asking" or requiring? When will someone in government stand up for enumerated rights of the citizens of this country? Are we too far gone for that?

For awhile now Safeway has asked no one carry in their stores. Just all the Safeway units I've been to do not have any signage station they are gun-free zones.

According to the various articles I've read, Walmart is asking the OCers not carry in their stores. It'll be up to store management on how they want to handle this.

Another email to send and phone call to make.

Do these idiots not realize the Wal-Mart that was shot up was in a GFZ?

We shall. Where have you seen them walking it back?

Here's the official letter from the Walmart CEO:
