    Taking your Wal-Mart walk

    I am posting this because Wal-Mart is the requirement for new CWP holders but we may need to rethink that especially around here. This is not the first time that this type of thing has happened at that Wal-Mart and I doubt that it will be the last. I understand that the incident was a carry over from something that started at one of the local high schools earlier in the day and appears that Wal-Mart is the meeting place for rumbles. Gang activity seems to be concentrated in just a few areas around here but is very heavy in those areas. My wife teaches 2nd grade and some of her students have shown her some of the gang signs and told her of the latest news. I am sure that a few of them will be heavily involved in a few years if they aren't already.

    Gang-related fight breaks out in Florence Wal-Mart - News - South Carolina Now (SCNow.com)

    From staff reports
    A gang-related fight Friday night at the Super Wal-Mart on South Irby Street in Florence ended with one adult and one juvenile being arrested.
    According to Lt. Brett Camp with the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, a group of 30-40 individuals were involved in an altercation that began inside the store and overflowed into the parking lot.
    There were initial calls of shots fired, but Camp said that was not confirmed.
    “We never confirmed shots fired,” he said. “If there were shots fired, they were in the air. No one was shot at.”
    Camp said because of the way the area is zoned, both the sheriff’s office and the Florence City Police Department had to respond to the incident.
    The sheriff’s office responded because the Wal-Mart parking lot is zoned in the county, and the actual building itself is zoned in the city.
    The names of the individuals that the police department arrested couldn’t be confirmed by press time Sunday.

    All the more reason to carry at Wal Mart! Would you want to be there . . . unarmed?? Its not a crime to carry at Wal Mart. Its a crime to carry unlicensed and unconcealed at Wal Mart.

    Carry legal! Be safe! Dont be stupid!
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    The WW World trek is the official stop for first-time CCW'ers because of the realistic scenarios, as pointed out in the article.
    Anyone making the trip to this particular WW should also practice carrying 'extra mags'...

    Stay armed...six mags should do it...stay safe!

    Dual jurisdiction, I'll bet that there was an inordinate delay in response time due to the two departments arguing over who should respond.

    Wal-mart walk will keep you in condition yellow or orange all the time. Great training ground to keep you on your toes. More patrols on the Walmart parking lot will keep the gangs bangers at bay. Citizens should call LEO's office when things look out of the ordinary. If we don't keep an eye on things the gangs will take over.

    Actually there was a Deputy Sheriff and an off-duty city LEO in the strore when it broke out so response time was zero but did no good. Two officers or one CWP isn't going to do much against 40 gang members.

    How would this work:
    Criminal kills criminal = cash reward/no charges filed
    Criminal kills civilian = mandatory death sentence, no appeals, carried out as they leave the courtroom.

    If you take the criminal vs. criminal statistics out of the equation, I'm sure even D.C. is civilized...

    New ccw holders go to walmart because its a likely place to get to test ther skills.

    I'm totally lost. What are you guys talking about? Are WalMarts down there that big a problem? Is there some video game there? Inside joke?

    I've seen a bit of gang graffiti in some of the Wal E World restrooms locally. One never knows.
