FL is pretty simple...
Signs meaning nothing and there is no OC (other than when hunting and fishing)...I have never seen a sign at a Wally World, or anywhere else I go in FL.

My Wisconsin walmart is ok, but the bank in the front lobby has a sign on the wall. It's funny, but when you are banking, you can have 1 foot in Walmart, and 1 foot in the bank. I still carry there.
The only gun buster sign I've seen since I moved to FL is at the bank I go to. It seems it is a company-wide thing as it is a national chain and the ones in other states are posted also with the exact same sign. Thanks to direct deposit, drive thru, and atm, I have no need to ever step foot in the building. If, for whatever reason, I did have reason to step foot inside the signs don't hold force of law in FL. Maybe we'll get OC some day like Virginia has. I didn't OC much, but at least I knew I could.

Not sure about Walmart but Sears is gun friendly. Target is not. They spend their profits fighting against our gun rights.
I OC and CC in Wal-Mart in Kentucky and have never had a problem from them.

Give me a minute before I post again.
I'm planning on going to Walmart in the Milwaukee, WI area in the near future to pick up some cheap ammo. Since I'm licensed to carry I will. I'll post what the results are. If they have a no firearms sign I won't bother going in.
I can see both sides of the no firearms in businesses question. It's a private business & they can do anything they want. I can elect not to patronize them. My feelings are that the signs should read "no unlicensed firearm"s. You can bet that an unlicensed thug will be carrying. All that accomplishes is to keep the honest, trained, licensed gun carrier from shopping there. I'll be darned if I'll stow my pistol in the car for someone to break in & steal it. There are no hiding places that a thief can't find.

The WW and Sam's around here are 2A friendly. The new Costco has the gun buster sign in the exit door. You can't see it when you go in but its there when you go out. So I shop at Sam's really the same thing as costco. Buckwheat Jr works at WW and I use his discount card to purchase ammo. I get an additional 10% off. Since he is there I know when they get a fresh shipments in.
Have never seen a No Guns sign at any WalMart I frequent in a number of states.
I did notice at Fin Feather Fur in Ashland OH that they had a "you must unload and check in your weapons" which really struck me as odd. Then I read further and the sign indicated that CC permit holders were free to carry concealed...
I've OC'd to WM a few times and haven't had any issues. No signs posted at the ones I've visited in CO.

Walmart in Copperas Cove, Tx has only Unlicensed possession of a weapon, etc sign posted. So, CC is okay.
