    I looked the bill up and you are right. you have to "leave it locked in your vehicle and out of sight"...not as cool as i thought but hey its still a step in the right direction.

    Here's the link to the Customer Service feedback page. I think we should all send them a message.

    The real travesty is he didn't kill both of the scumbags. Well, him being fired is the biggest really but you get my idea. What bullbutter! Hell with the drugs, the money and the store inventory from front to back...........how much is saving the lives of the employees worth? How about a lawsuit for the families of the employees who get killed in such a situation for the store not providing adequate protection? How much would be payed out then? Typical bean counters at work. Maybe they should have to work the shift and go through a robbery at gunpoint. Let's see what they think then.

    I think Walgreens views employees as low value assets!

    If they get killed, they are cheap to replace.

    Your right to carry is a right to not have the federal government tell you not to, it does not remove the property rights from property owners to determine the activity on their property. While I would handle this differently walgreens has a right to decide not to let their people carry, if you don't like that then don't work at walgreens

    I agree. But i think firing the guy was wrong. He did his company a service. I believe a better solution would have been to allow him to relocate to another store.

    Horkos, from an emotional or principled standpoint I agree...from a financial liability standpoint they actually made the right choice (that's if you ignore that fact that people like me will remember this and not stop there when I have options now)

    I dont know how many other options we have.

    from an older story,
    A drug store manager who fired two shots at an armed robber has been terminated by CVS Corp. officials, who said his actions put his co-worker's life in danger.

    So I guess what thier saying is they will have great video of the customers and employees being rounded up and shot one by one. I really like the statement of " Compliance is safer than confrontation". What a bunch of crock. I told them I would never step foot in another Walgreens store.

    No more walgreens for me! Good to know they will have good pics of people being robbed or killed.
