This is not the first time this has happened at a wal mart. First of all the law allows us to carry concealed or open. I do not have a problem with wal mart calling the police on someone who carries open "if they would post it". If they do not want us to carry in their stores they need to post it or otherwise they are infringing on our rights to carry and the law.

As much as I hate Wal-Mart, I donít think they had anything to do with this. It is my understanding that the cop was there to pick-up a shoplifter and was not called because of the guy carrying a gun.

The manager at the one in Clarksville confronted one of my coworkers doing the exact same thing a few years ago. Told him to leave the store and as long as he had his firearm not to come back. I'm really surprised that WM hasn't posted their entrances to legally prohibit CCW. Worst part is I wonder how many law enforcement officers are opposed to the CCW law and are in favor of gun control??

True and again this is not the first time this has occurred and I bet it has happened at other wal marts. I know of a customer being escorted out of wal mart because they carried openly in wal mart here in Coffee County.

You would think they'd rather see the gun... Oh well, maybe some sensitivity training and study of the TCA would help.

If walmart posts their stores I wonder how many $$ it will mean out of their deep deep pockets?

After raising 3 boys,you learn this really quick,you raise a boy right and as soon as they start driving they get ambushed by every Jack a## cop thats got a swelled badge head that isn't brave enough to go after the dope dealers or anyone else that might mess up their hair,so they make points with kids. But then you get the good ones who try their hardest to stop these jerks. At least we have a few good ones,I just wish they were the majority.

Wal-Mart has no policy regarding concealed weapons. They follow along with the laws of the state in which the store is located. However, they do STRONGLY prefer you keep it concealed. If you open carry in Wal-Mart you'll most likely be asked to either conceal it or leave. That's fine with me. Their business, their rules, and they don't prohibit concealed carry. Better than most businesses like that on this issue.

Several Wal-Mart stores have put up signs prohibiting carrying of any kind and a phone call to the big office resulted in the signs being taken down. At least that was my experience.

In this case it seems that particular Wal-Mart didn't have an issue with him open carrying. The problem didn't arise until the officer stopped him on his way out. I didn't see anything about the store instigating the stop. Sometimes you'll get lucky like that with the business. My local one wants you to keep it concealed.

By the way, I only post this because I skimmed through this thread and saw a few comments about Wal-Mart and carrying weapons in their stores. I offer this for some basic info on their stance as it was explained to me...twice.
