    Not sure how it is in NM but here if the signs are not posted correctly they have no force of law. But they can still ask you to leave. With repercussions if you don't.

    Same in Kansas.
    But Walmart would NOT want to lose me as a customer. I think I keep them in business. I hate shopping there, but it's the most convenient place to get everything at one time. It's also the last place I'd go unarmed now.

    Just received some new info on posting at Walmart. Seems there was an incident at a convenience market here in town recently, and it started a wildfire on carrying. Also it appears that the law is somewhat vague, but we are now instructed by the Gods that be in our Guvmnt. LOL that we may carry CC, but not OC in an establishment that sells alcohol, in any form other than open container. We ARE NOT allowed to carry in any Bar that get more than 60% of its income from Liquor sales (this means OC or CC). So we are good to go, and continue business as usual. Incidentally, the convenience store has now posted their store with their own sign prohibiting carry of any kind. Sorry for their loss of business, but that's their problem not mine. ;)
    I am old and slow, BUT dead on with my aim!!

    Shucks, they know we won't go to Target -- that's a hundred miles from Clovis!

    I thought it was 51%.

    Interesting about those signs -- the ones at Wal Mart in Clovis have the exemption for licensed concealed carry hand written on the top of the sign. The sign at that convenience store doesn't. Sooner or later, somebody is going to have to get them all on the same page or else -- uh -- I guess if they don't, we'll all keep laughing at them!

    It's too far to drive and it's too late tonight. Maybe later this week.

    OK -- I took pictures, let's see if I can get them up here. Unfortunately, the reflections off the glass doors at Wal Mart gave my cell phone camera fits. Out of focus, etc.

    First, the sign at Wal Mart - this is from the south entrance door at Wal Mart in Clovis, New Mexico. Note the prominently displayed explanation for the concealed carry exception.

    Next, the sign at the convenience store. It's interesting to note, this sign is a photocopy of a "real" sign, there is no exception mentioned for concealed carry, and it makes me think the manager is just afraid of guns other than in police hands.

    Our Wal Mart in Carlsbad has the sign as does my favorite Mexican food place(no not Lucy's). The owner of the restaurant told me that the ABC told her to post the sign as they "feel" that guns don't have a place anywhere that alcohol is served or sold. It is the personal opinion of an ABC agent.

    Stop spending your money there if that is their stance. Find a CCW friendly dealer and spend money with them .

    Walmart in this circumstance, is refusing everyone the right to protect themselves. In doing so, they are taking on the responsibility to protect their customers, because they will not let them protect themselves. Corporate walmart is aware of this, and has lost at least one major lawsuit as a result of signs like this.
