    walmart

    was going in walmart in s.w. Michigan the other day stopped to look and see if it was posted to not be able to ccw, there was something posted about firearms but it was half riped off, this store is only around two years old next time I'll fine the manager and ask will see what he says.

    His answer will be interesting...

    if he says it's posted against firearms might I suggest you:

    1. express surprise at the answer
    2. indicate that you didn't know that Wal-Mart was anti-2nd Amendment
    3. tell him you'll go to Target, K-Mart, Sears, whatever with your business
    AND
    4. Mention as you are leaving that you'll have to drop Bentonville a line that you were not aware that they had changed their policy.

    I would be curious how he reacts to that, when said in a matter-of-fact, conversational tone of voice.

    I a different forum...

    This very subject was broached, and basic company policy is not to prohibit CCW in the store, and any such posts on the door of the store are based upon individual managers and can be countered by a letter to Corporate HQ. There is a posing verifying this at the Corporate web site, I don't have the link though I never saved it.

    I searched the Wal-Mart website as well as the internet and couldn't find a definitive answer. I did send a message to Wal-Mart corporate requesting clarification (and maybe posting the info on their website) on the issue.

    I'll post the response I get here when (and if) they respond.

    Reply from Walmart

    Here's the email reply I got from Walmart:


    Thank you for your message.

    Dear [First name deleted],

    For information regarding your inquiry, please contact your local store and speak with a member of management. To find the phone number for your local Wal-Mart store, please visit the www.walmart.com website and click on Store Finder at the bottom of the page.

    Thank you,
    Wal-Mart Customer Relations



    For further correspondence regarding this issue, please reply to this email.


    ----Your Original Comments Were----

    I would like information regarding the company policy of Wal-Mart regarding the concealed carry of firearms while shopping in the stores. As you may be aware, many states issue permits that allow citizens to carry a firearm. I hold permits from numerous states, and travel to various parts of the U.S. on a regular basis. I would like to know if Wal-Mart has a corporate policy that prohibits customers from shopping while armed. I searched your website and could not find an answer. I browsed the internet and got various opinions and conflicting answers. I would like to respect the policy of your company while at the same time exercising my right to carry my concealed firearm (where legal). Your assistance in clarifying this issue for me will be appreciated.

    As instructed, I called one of our local Walmart stores and spoke with an assistant manager. The response I got was "Huh? There's no concealed carry in Hawaii." I mentioned the email I received and the person I spoke with responded with "Is this a joke?" After a few minutes going back and forth, I was able to convince the person on the phone that I was legit. She said she'll "look into it" and "will get back to me". I gave her my contact info. We'll see what happens.

    sounds like a store managers decision and not a walmart policy, I have not been back to one of the W.M. stores since to see or ask, it may have been about returning a firearm and not about carry, it was half piled off, if i come across anything I will post it, thanks for the update, you would think there would be more activity on this site? lets do our best.:) be safe.

    Here in the Wa;-Mart I have seen no sighns saying no CCW, By the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) guidelines a legal no CCW allowed sighn has to be a certan size, the letters on the sighn have to be a certan size, and color, and posted at a certan hight, and locaton, Any posted sighn other than the legal size, and color could be contested in court, But I find it better to comply with the request not to carry in a place with any sighns saying NO CCW, its less of a hassel, and alot less expensive in the long run, if caugh, and they press charges.......

    well I don't think it is a company policy. at least I hope not. I go to walmart for a lot of things including ammo.. and used to buy guns there. never did find out why they stopped selling guns.. or was it just certain stores? they had some good prices on some decent rifles!
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

    I think the deal is that they don't sell guns if there's a "Sports Authority" within so many miles that sells guns. Don't know the exact relationship between the two stores. I did purchase a rifle in NV back in '05. Got a very good deal. :)

    About 2 years ago

    the Wal-Marts were going through a rolling remodel project that apparently reduced the number of stores that carry firearms. Ammo would still be sold but WM is a business and determined that the square footage vs. profit margin didn't justify keeping it in the product line. More money from tackle and CO2 cartridges than weapons. They built a brand new WM about 7-8 miles up the road from my place in Silverdale, WA and put in a big sporting goods area with displays of rifles and lots of secured ammo cabinets. The manager of that department told me about the plans and said his understanding was that about 60% of WM's would quit selling firearms. No politics, just a dollars and cents business agenda. So, buy their ammo and patronize the stores who still do carry rifles and shotguns. Or, if you hate WM, don't.

    Personally, I love WM and particularly like the convenience of their ammo sales areas and low-end rifles and basic shotguns. Carried there regularly and never had a problem. The WM in Bellingham knew I carried because I showed my permit one day when buying a .22.
