Of course the first few OC incidents right after Wal Mart announced it's new no OC policy must be met with a show of force and sensationalized headlines. What is the best way to generate support for OC bans (and the anti gun agenda itself)? By showing OC, and by extension the people who do it, in the most negative light possible and then show superiority by putting those terrible gun people in their place.
The cost when one chooses to make a spectacle of himself.

SO WHAT THE HECK DID HE DO? Refuse to leave when they asked him to? That would be a trespassing charge but the one LEO said he had done nothing illegal. And this in Kentucky, one of the most pro-second amendment states?

We are all doomed. I guess we knew that but didn't think it was so soon.
The officer said he didn't commit a crime. Not sure about Kentucky, but in Minnesota, not leaving when asked is a petty misdemeanor, technically not a crime, but a civil infraction.

The VCDL is reporting tonight from a knowledgeable source that WalMart will be banning open carry, not just "asking" and will have signage to match. The VCDL stresses, though, that it considers this report "unconfirmed." However, they are advising members not to open carry in Walmart until all this shakes out.

My thought is that as far as I know, most states that have open carry do not have a legal provision for "no open carry" signage, only full "no guns allowed" signs. So how would a "no open carry sign" have any force of law if there is not legal provision for it? A venue is either a GFZ or it is not.

Interesting question, here in North Carolina No Guns signs carry force of law but nowhere in the law is a No Open Carry sign mentioned.

In my not so humble opinion gun folks are well on their way to becoming the next group of people to be diminished, demeaned, ostracized, discriminated against, shunned, shamed, considered less than acceptable for society, and relegated to second class status. And no, OC isn't the cause but is merely one of many targets (and vehicles used) in the ongoing push for the anti gun pro elite to "fundamentally transform America".

Remember, it isn't paranoia if they really are out to get the guns.
Here is the thing...this incident happened Aug 22nd. At least that’s when the video first surfaced. Walmart didn’t announce their ban until Sept 2nd. They banned him before the official ban went into effect. From all Walmart’s. And Sam’s clubs. In the entire nation.

As one earlier poster mentioned, he has no other place to shop in his town. I’ve been in AZ, CO, NM in similar places where you have to drive a couple hours...just to get to a Walmart. This is actually going to put a huge hardship on millions of people. Let that sink in.

What Walmart and Kroger are doing reminds me of the bump stock ban in that:

1. It actually accomplishes nothing.
2. I has effect on a comparatively miniscule number of people who carry guns.
3. It appears virtuous to its intended audience and gives the illusion of taking some action.

We'd do well by denying them the extra attention they want and either quit spending money there or don't, whatever seems right to you.

That's a bit of a stretch. I don't think millions of people open carry in Walmart. Let's not give the b----ards more credit than they deserve.

To be banned from Walmart He did not have to break any laws. What He signed is a legal warning that "If he returns he is a Trespasser". Now what are the chances he will be tossed out of any other WM? practically none. But if the Cops are called and he is there they can then arrest him on a trespass charge. A charge that will be backed up by the fact that he was warned in writing, and he signed!
The County I worked for does that all the time. We kicked the Homeless out of empty buildings all the time. If you brought one to see the judge, the first question would be Did you see any signs to keep out? If the Homeless say no they walk. But if they had been previously cited. It would be in black and white that he had been warned. Then they could prosecute!

Actually the only folks who will experience any hardship will be the gun owners/carriers who stand firm on their principles. All others will continue to spend their money supporting the anti gun efforts of Walmart and Everytown for Gun Safety because... well... concealed means concealed.

Walmart is a charter member of the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership, organized by Walmart and Everytown for Gun Safety.

It’s a bit of a stretch now...what about five years from now when this same group of them have banned CC? All you need is Walmart, Kroger and Albertsons. With all of their subsidiaries now where are you going to shop?

If idiots like this continue to ignore Walmart's very clear statement that they don't want you open carrying in their stores that's exactly where it's going to go
Eh, you don’t get it either. It’s not about OC in the long run. It’s about the right kind of people shopping and keeping a livelihood. If you’re not the right kind of people, well sucks to be you. You’ll have to shop somewhere else. Too bad a dozen or so entities own all the chain stores for buying necessities like food and clothes.

Do a little research. This has happened before. Expect a national list to be created and our names to end up in it...if there isn’t one already. You’re going to be deplatformed from life.

And Wal Mart will actively help CC go the way of OC:

From Wal Mart's own website:

https://corporate.walmart.com/policies

Under "Firearms and Ammunition Guidelines

Selling Firearms Responsibly
-snip-

Walmart is a charter member of the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership, organized by Walmart and Everytown for Gun Safety.-snip-
We the People have a lot more say about Walmart's decisions than you might think. Their net operating margin is only 2.5%. Even a 2.5% boycott percentage is enough to cut profits by 100% down to nothing.

That's a very loud voice.

Yes, because carrying a gun is the same as a race or religious affiliation. Come on, man! Bringing the holocaust into this is an irresponsible thing to do.
