At least they're not putting up a 30.06 sign, not sure I'd go if I couldn't CC. This is the one place I would probably open carry. My wife and I hate how busy Walmart is we normally go do our biweekly grocery shopping late at night on weekends when almost no one is in there. But come on it is is Walmart there are always at least 1-15 sketchy [censored] people pursuing around inside or in the parking lot. Looks like Walmart will allow OC, but will stop you and ask for you license because they don't want to lose their liquor license.

I see ole CJ Grishim isn't happy about this. Isn't he the one that wanted constitution carry because he doesn't qualify for a CHL?

LINK TO STORY

Quote:
Managers at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. in Texas have a new task to add to their list of duties: asking customers if they have a permit to carry a handgun.

To comply with state liquor rules, the world’s biggest retailer sent a written notice last month to stores that sell alcohol, telling managers to ensure that customers who openly carry firearms under a new law have licenses. Cashiers or door greeters who see someone with a gun are to alert the highest-ranking employee, who is to approach the customer and ask to see the paperwork.

Isn't a CHL carrier only required to show your CHL to LEO?

Only if he is wearing a badge will he see my LTC. Walmart is NOT the boss of me.

That is the way I read the law. Walmart going to have a lot of unhappy open carriers and a lot of unhappy anti-gun activist lol. Guessing they'll have a lot of people turn around at the door and leave.

Any open carrier who wants to shop at their store and not receive verbal notification to leave.

I'd tell the manager or whoever questioned me to kick rocks. They have zero authority, but they can ask you to leave their store if you refuse, not that that's big loss.

Man I hate Wal-Mart and it burns my tail to have to defend them, but if they are going to allow you the privilege of open caring on their property, and accept the liability for that action on there private property they have the wright to know your doing so legally. It takes little or no effort to concealed if you do not want to prove your legal.

In the last year or two they have had a concealed carrier shot and killed by her toddeler (who was playing with her purse) and as second concealed carrier killed when trying to stop an active shooter incident.

I am surprised that they are going to allow open carry at all after those two incidents.

When you (*not Cast specifically - the collective you) are in their store, aren't you* on their terms? If you* come in my house, you* are definitely there on my terms.

Not going after you, Cast, this is just the first thought I had after reading your comment and offering it for discussion.

I gotta agree here. I always ask my host if I can CC in their house before I come in. In retrospect, I think I would either show my LTC or politely turn and leave, depending on the circumstances. I figure WM can ask anybody to leave the store for any reason.

But, you don't plan to open carry. They won't ask you.

absolutely and they can ask you to leave, by law the only one you are required to show your permit to is le so their choice is ak you to leave and loose revenue or let you stay. my revenue wouldnt matter and i would just leave. I dont ask permission to carry at others places but if told to leave i surely would, i would not go someplace where a persons right to carry is not supported. with that being said i soon have to do just that but it is an army base owned by the govt so to be expected.
