Thanks for posting. My son-in-law told me Christmas eve that it was all CHL. This clarifies it a little. Don't want to have to buy my meat and produce at Walmart sick

I think seeing customers with guns on their hips would run off more customers than protestors.

I think we will see a lot more big chain stores do the same.

Open carry puts guns in the reach of children in shopping carts. One lady was killed this year by her two year old and she had her gun in her purse.

Fellow lease member took his kids into Sanderson for a break from the hunt to see the "big city lights" last week. Everyone was openly packing, including the waitress. 'Course, they're 10 miles from the reever.

It's still not legal.

"Texas supermarket chain H-E-B will not allow customers to openly carry guns in its stores even when the new state law legalizing open carry goes into effect in January.

H-E-B has started to post signs at its entrances prohibiting open carry. A company spokeswoman says H-E-B is maintaining a long-held policy to only permit concealed carry in its stores."

That's a condemnation for concealed carry. If it had been in a retention holster on her hip, that child would have never been able to get ahold of it. Even a simple leather holster with a snap.

Are retention holders required by law for open carry?

No sir. Just required by common sense.

I don't think most people are going to run in fear every time they see a
firearm on someone's hip. People are pretty quick to adapt to new things. Also, the number that actually carry this way will fade soon enough.

Every business will be forced to make a choice on this issue, I have no problem with however the individual owner or corporation decides.....being in business is about making a profit not making political statements.
