I realized that was the best course of action about a minute too late.Ignore the liberal and keep on about your own business...they really hate being ignored...drives them more crazy than they normally are.
Answer: never know where you are going to run into a mentally unstable person!Had my first run in with a crazy person.
In the Lowe's on Suffolk Main Street, I hear a lady say "You have a gun, Why would you have a gun in here?"
I looked at her, but didn't reply.
Lady: You don't look like a cop, I don't even think cops should carry off duty, but you're not one, right?
Me: (kind of chuckling) Definitely not a cop
L: Why would you be carrying in here?
There'll be a gun show at the Hampton Convention Center next weekend (9/14-9/15). Gun owners will line up to pay admission so that they can unload their firearms, then have them inspected and zip-tied as conditions of entry into the show. Walmart, Kroger and the rest don't impose such draconian restrictions on their patrons, and admission is free.Well just cancelled my SAMs club membership and signed up for BJs. It is a shame Walmart and Kroger are going to the dark side! Now just need to transfer my prescriptions away from Kroger. I have been OCing at both for years.
Why I don’t frequent local gun shows, they think they want my good hard earned $$$ to spend on their vendor’s wares yet demean me to get in...There'll be a gun show at the Hampton Convention Center next weekend (9/14-9/15).

Per Doug’s 3 Sept memo...”As it relates to concealed carry by customers with permits, there is no change to our policy or approach.”Walmart went beyond simply "preferring" that open carriers not open carry in their stores. They encouraged congress to do increase gun control, stopped sales of pistols (Alaska) and pistol ammunition and joined a coalition of anti-gun Michael Bloombooger's gun control Nazi's!
Dear Associates, A month ago, in El Paso, Texas, a gunman with an assault-style rifle launched a hate-filled attack in our store, shooting 48 people resulting in the loss of 22 innocent lives. Just a few days prior, two of our associates were killed by another associate in our store in Southaven,…corporate.walmart.com
They lost my business period. As far as gun shows the venue usually dictates whether or not carrying weapons is allowed. If you want to open a venue that is large enough to hold a gun show AND allow carrying of loaded firearms you are welcome to do so. Until then they gun show vendors have to work with what is available. (with that said I am not sure how hard they look at other venues)
If Walmart simply asked customers to not OC implying CC was allowed I may still shop there but they dug their financial grave in my book. On a happy note, local gun stores are going to pick up their business and grow!
